Sketchbook Transformed in 100 Days as a Delightful Catalog of Pattern


Samantha Russo sketchbook

I’ve writ­ten here before about my pen­chant for 100 days projects, and artist Saman­tha Rus­so has recent­ly com­plet­ed one that’s full of col­or and pattern—plus, it’s all con­tained in her sketch­book. Page after page, she uses paint, mark­ers, and pas­tels to cre­ate vibrant abstract com­po­si­tions that exper­i­ment with scale and tex­ture.

If you’re look­ing for a project to start 2017 (or fin­ish 2016), this seems like a good one. It makes you focus on play, and I’m sure that ele­ments from these pages will be incor­po­rat­ed into Samantha’s work some­how.
