What making art looks like

...according to my sketchbook. In Italy in 2007, when I really began sketching in earnest, I drew whatever was available to me. A good deal of what was available to me were the Montana State students who accompanied me during my semester abroad. In between teaching and critiquing I ended up drawing each and every one of them at least once, and many several times. They were all also making art at the time, so my sketchbook became a record of their process and mine.
