Doodler; or How a Basically Antisocial Printmaker Survived Her First Summer as an Art Fair Artist

Sara Youngman's avatar Sara Youngman

At every art fair last summer I doodled to while away the long, slow hours. I am framing nine of these 8-1/2" x 11" pen & ink drawings in a 30" x 36" frame. It will consist of one piece of white matboard with each drawing attached, with clear corners, evenly spaced, in a square of 3 x 3 drawings. Then framing the entire piece with a simple black frame. My goal is to present a cohesive piece which shows one artist's state-of-mind during an exhausting summer of art fairs. As a printmaker I couldn't work on copper plates, so I substituted pen & ink and white cardstock. After a summer of doodling I realized that my basic style of printmaking is doodling on copper/ stream-of-consciousness drawing. People will immediately recognize my printmaking style in these drawings. All the images are downloaded, but the framed piece is not yet assembled.
