When I started blogging my drawings I was working in small bound books (Moleskines), one drawing a day: bound drawings that somehow maintained a daily narrative, inseparable from their collective physical context. As time went on, the drawings became more complex and more enmeshed in an on-going thought process. They start one day and finish whenever they finish and I work in several sketchbooks at the same time, of various sizes. And the pages are now removable.
I work with internal (anatomy, a continuing fascination) and external (flux of experience and environment). And, over the last 10 years I’ve been experimenting with in-image captions, more and more in Spanish.
(Drawings are pencil, ink, watercolor, whatever on paper: various sketchbooks, going one book to the next. And the pages are now removable. All art copyright Sharon Frost, firstname.lastname@example.org).
La acampada, Plaza del Arenal, Jerez de la Frontera. 9 Noviembre, 2011.
7 x 14 in. double-page spread; watercolor, ink, whatever, on paper.
(I have niether dog nor flute, Plaza del Arenal. This refers to media references to the 15M protestors in Madrid who were called street people/hippies. The encampment in Jerez is small, but it persists.)
