Frozen Faces (Arthouse Sketchbook Project)


These little chaps look so cold, dedicated to all my friends freezing under the snow in the UK!

Looking at some photo's from the film 'The March of the Penguins' I found some lovely little faces in amongst the crowds of penguins.  I just couldn't leave them out!  Thank you again to Martine Pittet for her suggestion.

I've started to think about  what to do with the cover of my sketchbook.  It's red and cardboardy so I need something that won't disappear into the paper and it also needs to be fairly hardwearing as the book (hopefully) will be handled quite a lot.  I  was thinking about using acrylic paint and pens but I wish I had something to practice on first!

OMG, look at these cuties! They're so adorable, I just want to adopt them (and the weather here would fit, really!).

I'm way behind with my own sketchbook - no idea what to do with the cover either so far. I'm curious about your solution already!

I love these guys! I had the same thoughts about the cover. I didn't want to glue anything on, or apply anything that would flake off. Hey, did you notice that ArthouseCoop is offering all kinds of new projects?

Same comments from me - cute and adorable (and beautifully executed!). The only suggestion I can make for your book is a fabric slipcover - perhaps calico painted with fabric crayons and/or hand dyed?
