Hand Made Sketchbook

Pattie Belle Hastings

Recycle, Reuse, Remake. Hand made sketchbook using papers, scraps and ephemera from a giant recycled materials warehouse in Bristol, UK. I even managed to find a little time to make a book during my drawing research trip to meet and collaborate with my fellow HATCH members. The further along I get in my art career, the more I like to use existing or found materials to make my work.

Finger Drawing

Pattie Belle Hastings

Electric Finger: an experiment in touch surface drawing
Our fingers are electric. They emit electromagnetic frequencies that allow us to interact with touch screen technologies. It’s called “finger capacitance” and it’s this conductive property of our fingers that makes capacitive touch sensing possible. Mobile devices, such as my iPod Touch, are designed to respond to the taps and caresses of my fingertips, providing access to necessary but mundane information or allowing for moments of unique creative exploration. For decades, it has been possible to draw with a computer using a mouse or stylus, but now we can carry electronic sketchbooks in our pockets with the tools for mark making at the ends of our arms.
