A Happy Ending

Here are the last pages of my sketchbook for the Arthouse Sketchbook Project.  The one above is Mr 'X' who started this sketchbook (see here),  but here he is cloned over and over again.
So who is the 'face in the crowd?
We are all faces in the crowd, each face is different and has it's own character, but in the end we are all part of a crazy mixed up world of faces.  Mr 'X' is anonymous, a clone and a copy, he doesn't exist!



Finally the very last page and all my characters, real and imagined wander off into the sunset, just like in all good books and films.  I do like a happy ending!

Now all I need to do is complete the cover and send it off.  Pheewww!

Well done! you worked so hard and it's a real achievement!

Mr X is a little creepy - especially seen in multiples...but beautifully done.

Congratulations !!!! You last pages are wonderful, Cathy, and it's been such a pleasure discovering your original sketches ! If you're like me,you'll feel the "absence" of this little sketchbook once you've sent it! But then, it's time for plenty of people in the US to enjoy it !

Congratulations on the completion of your project! I've had such fun traveling this road with you and I'm a little sad it's over, but, now, on to other things! Just think of the possibilities!

The sunset is so cool! Clever, witty idea.

I'm also a little bummed out that you're finished. I only recently began following and now it's done. No more faces for me.

I'll be you are so proud! You should be. This is the most wonderful sketchbook - very creative and all drawn so well. Congratulations!

And the clones are great, and I love the silhouettes - so story bookish (especially the skeleton).

Your Mr. X reminds me of the agent in the Matrix; really creepy. But, I love the ending of your book, all of them dancing off into the sunset. That's a great analogy. Awesome work. :)
