I spent the month of August in the jungle of Peru doing an artist residency at Sachaqa Centro de Arte in San Roque de Cumbaza, Perú. During my time in the jungle, I created a site specific sculpture on the top of the mountain. I have been home for two weeks, but I have been struggling to piece together my thoughts and reflect on the trip. While I was there, I kept a consistent visual journal in the form of a Moleskine ArtPlus Sketchbook aka my most favorite sketchbook I've ever had (affiliate link) and I set aside time to draw, paint or sketch in it every single day. My goal was to fill the entire sketchbook during my trip. I accomplished this when I filled the final page on the plane ride home to North Carolina!
Currently, I am still working on writing down my thoughts from my trip and I have uploaded some preliminary pictures here. I have brief statements in English and Spanish available. Soon enough, I’ll be publishing video content as well. For now, here are some of the pages from my sketchbook. I am still sorting through all of the images and video and processing my own thoughts, but as soon as those are sorted I’ll share them here!
So there you have it! That is the first section of my sketchbook. I'll be sharing the rest of it over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!
