It is an absolute pleasure to present you with work from the sketchbook of Laura Prentice. I am loving her adorable and whimsical drawings of houses, streets and buildings.
I am a recent college grad with a BA in studio art. My undergrad program was huge on keeping a sketchbook and it was actually a part of our grading system to be actively sketching and taking notes. I really got into the practice of journaling as a low-pressure way to be making and thinking about art. I find keeping an art journal/sketchbook a great way to make art on the go, to pass time on the bus, to take along to a museum, to doodle, and to sketch out new ideas. In addition to a traditional sketchbook, I have also created a variety of altered books and journals.
