Sketchbook Project 2015 Update:  Jackman Brothers Part 3 delayed…this story is still in works got tied up with my fashion design work so it’ll likely come out in the Sketchbook format in 2016, but the story itself will be finished late Spring 2015 (May timeframe).

Latest bits of writing……I love combining photography with storytelling and I did a quick little post writing a short blurb for a picture I took of Ruby Clouds.  You can check it out here:  http://andshesawstars.com/2015/01/the-hat/.

The Sketchbook Project Work:

I’ve had the pleasure of participating in The Sketchbook Project over the past 2 years. The Jackman Brothers series is a blend of mixed media art and text telling the stories about the lives associated with the Jackman Brothers’ circus.

The Jackman Brothers - The Rough Sketches
The Jackman Brothers – The Rough Sketches (part 1) (38 pages) (part 1) (38 pages)

The Jackman Brothers:  The Tale of the Sick Herald (part 1) (38 pages)

Part 1 is about the Herald for the Jackman Brothers’ circus who is responsible for announcing the impending arrival of the circus to the next towns.  He is sick and there is a need to get him well quick.

The Jackman Brothers:  The Quest for the Music Man (part 2) (38 pages)

The Quest for the Music Man - Mixed Media Art
The Quest for the Music Man – Mixed Media Art

Part 2 focuses on the search for the Music Man, the Ringmaster of a rival circus.  It picks up where part 1 ends  and introduces new characters and expands on the world of the Jackman Brothers.

Check them both out!  I think they are great stories and I loved working on them.  The artwork evolved between each book and I’m sure it’ll continue to evolve when part 3 comes out in the next Sketchbook Project (likely 2016). My Sketchbook 2015 Project will likely just be artwork since I was really busy working on my fashion design work.
