The intent of this project is to understand the process of drawing through sketching, the process of experimentation through mixed media, and the process of design through arrangement of elements. I started this sketchbook in February of 2013 and spent about ten months finishing it. In those ten months, I learned an immense amount about drawing and design.
The term Vanity Book comes from my mentor, Sterling Hundley, who encourages his students to keep a variety of sketchbooks. The Vanity Book would give one the freedom to experiment, enjoy and liberate themselves from outside critique. The objective of the book is purely for exploration. 
The content in this book ranges from old photographs, life drawing, video screencaps and from imagination. 
However, with the second Vanity Book, I experimented more with pen and ink. With this project, I learned to become consistent with my aesthetic, but still have a variety in my design.
