Studio / Sketchbooks
Martin has kept various forms of sketchbooks since his school days.
They started out as re-appropriated maths books, which were bombarded with graffiti and converted into ‘piece books’. These were worked in and exchanged in the playground.
A full Piece Book was a thing to cherish and behold, even steal.
Martin has continued to use sketchbooks and over the years they have taken on many forms.
Off-cuts from commercial work, collage experiments, note books or montage diaries from travelling,
the idea behind these is the same – record, collect and experiment.
