Sketchbook Saturday: Katherine Akmulun



Today, we're devouring these pages from Katherine Akmulun's sketchbook.


"I draw my illustrations in the smallest sketchbook format with ballpoint pens and pencils. For me, a sketchbook is not just a book for quick sketches and training, but a way to experiment. I use a variety of materials and drawing techniques to get the effect I want, including duct tape and plastic sheets.

In my work, I raise various issues and try to tell a long and interesting story using just one spread.


We often forget that it's not only us considering and evaluating the story told by the author; the story too looks back at us. The characters in this story are watching us intently from the pages of the book and only they can see our real face."
