Sunday Sketches – Robots for The Sketchbook Project

Remember The Sketchbook Project that I entered? I chose the theme “Encylopedia of” and after some thought I decided on Encyclopedia of Mechanical Contrivances (robots) just because robots are fun to draw and they are one of my favorite things. The paper in the sketchbook is just text copy, not sketchbook paper at all. I couldn’t find a medium that did not show through, warp, or refuse to stick, so I am replacing it with Strathmore Aquarius II watercolor paper. It’s only 80lb but has a special coating to keep it from warping like the lightweight watercolor papers normally do. And it is a nice bright white with a smooth velvety texture. The pic to the left is my new cover.  The larger pic is my first page. I think of this guy as Breakfast Bot. He will serve up a quick breakfast, your newspaper and the morning weather. The parrot is his best friend, whether he likes it or not. This is my Sketchbook Sunday entry for the week. Stop by Sophia’s place to see all the other entries!

    Wonderful start! And an inspired paper choice. I’ve finally chosen a theme (that really took a while for me). Now I need to order the stuff.

    I’ll definitely look forward to seeing your sketchbook when it goes a’traveling.

      What theme did you choose? It was a hard choice for me, too. I finally asked my son to help me narrow it down. He’s my advisor. 🙂
