Always a relief to know that my sketchbooks have arrived safely in Brooklyn Art Library. The Sketchbook Project crew sent me this email today:

“Thanks for sending in your project for The Sketchbook Project 2017! We just wanted to let you know that your project has now been cataloged into the Brooklyn Art Library! It can be found on the shelves with a call number of 327.1-5.”

It will now take the crew between four and six weeks for my book to be digitised.

SBP Sketchbook for America- 88 Form Yang Style Tai Ji sequence

sbp drawing sbp second drawing

Have been busy filling my SBP Sketchbook for Brooklyn Art Library in New York (see earlier Blogs). I have drawn the Yang 88 Style of Taijiquan as it was being performed in front of me. No time for details, just focusing on grasping the essence and the energy flow of the form. I have been studying Tai Ji for 25 years now so this is a celebration of my quarter century. I do however still consider myself to be a beginner. It is supposed to take several lifetimes to master the art of Tai Ji.

In 2012 my first sketchbook was titled:’ My Mother’s Last Christmas’, a diary of the week I spent with her when she wasn’t expected to live for much longer. Two years later I submitted a sketchbook called ‘Inside Out’ which was a series of self portraits.
