Suburban Dreaming: a haiku sketchbook





Last year I visited the Brooklyn Art Library, home of a brilliant public art project, The Sketchbook Library. Over 41,000 5″x7″ sketchbooks from 130 countries can be viewed in person, on tour and online.

I was inspired to bring home my own sketchbook, which I’ve now completed.

My sketchbook combines pen and watercolour drawings with haiku. It’s an ode to the accidental art, moments of beauty and small dramas that can be found amid the banality of suburbia.


Update: my sketchbook is now in the Brooklyn Art Library and can be viewed online here.
