I love how everything is connected on the internet  …  Today I stumbled across the A-MAZING sketchbooks of Harold Hollingsworth on Flickr and paused because they reminded me of  sketchbooks I created during my summer in Copenhagen. Weeks, maybe even months earlier, I found the image above on Tumblr and thought it was a wheat paste  poster, or a piece of found typography, but I had no idea where it came from, or who created it. Turns out it is by Hollingsworth! After I discovered his sketchbooks and began searching for information to write this post, I found his blog and tumblr. One thing lead to another, and I finally found who created the work of art I liked so much. I love what that happens! Today I’m sharing pages from his sketchbooks, and tomorrow I’ll share some of Hollingsworth’s mixed-media paintings. In the sketchbooks, I love how each page is more a “composition” rather than a “sketchbook”. Each page or spread is like a work of art. Experimental, gestural and full of energy. How great are these?
