It’s almost a year since I added my sketchbook to the sketchbook library in Brooklyn, New York.
On walking into the library, I was so eager to hand it over that I immediately thrust it at the librarian. She thanked me and promptly tidied it out back, with other new arrivals.
After a beat, I realised that it might have been a nice idea to document the fact that I was handing over an art project I’d been working on for a number of months. I skulked over and asked for it back…
Much of my current work has an element of gathering and collecting, which really began with this handbags project. Women from across the world send me the contents of their handbags, which I drew within this little purse-sized sketchbook.
