Art History and Response

following the theme of Junk, I wanted to look first at Urban Artists to explore Art which can be percieved of as Junk. Who better to start with than Banksy. Writing a bit about the artist's history and individual style usually makes a nice Art History, but it's a good idea to also talk about why you like or dislike the artist, make it individual.

 sometimes you might run out of room on you page, so it's ok to use more than 1 double spread, just make sure you use it well! If you find you have a few loose drawings with no home, fold outs are a nice idea. Make your book interesting for the examiner to look through so it's not boring. Remember- the examiner will decide within the first few pages what grade you will get so make an impression!
 see, fold outs :)

you dont have to stick to artists too. Here i did a small artist reasearch about a film! Anything that inspires you.

decorating the pages is a nice way to respond to the artists too. It says to the examiner- 'all you can give me for this page is A*' because it shows that you are really thinking about what you are sticking in your sketchbook, eve if you just do it because it looks pretty.


  1. I really like your sketchbook, i'm really impressed, wish i could see your book up close! Well done, keep working and blogging!
