As previously mentioned, I am participating in the Moleskine Exchange #24, which has been pretty fun. I got my first exchange in the mail the other day from Kerstin in Germany. She wanted to keep a "Japanese" theme for her sketchbook, so I pondered and puzzled about something along that line. I kept thinking of squid, ink drawings, etc. This is what resulted. The scan didn't come out as good as I'd have hoped, but it's fun to see how everything starts blending together in this project.
