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, email@example.com, sharonfrost.net).

La persona que estaba dibujando se levantó para dejar el tren. Mientras lo hacía, se inclinó para recoger mi caja de lápices, que se había caído al suelo, y me la dio. (F train in Manhattan. The person I was drawing got up to leave the train. As she did so, she bent down to pick up my pencil case, which had fallen to the floor, and handed it to me. 5 1/2 x 11 in. double page spread; watercolor, ink, whatever, on Global Art Materials Handbook. #subways #f train #manhattan #reading
