Artist Books

A few semesters ago I was able to be part of the artist books class and learned about book binding. Since then I have been creating some of my own sketchbooks and also put put together these two artist books. I really enjoy the challenge and the craftsmanship needed to build a book out of raw materials while at the same time being able to keep it clean all throughout the process of sowing and binding.

Illustration West 49 at Gallery Nucleus

Here are a couple of pictures that I took at opening night of the show. This year there were about six Cal State Fullerton students that were accepted into the show. It was really good to share the event with some of my classmates and even one of our professors. For a look at all the work that was part of the show follow the link to the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles website.
