Boomerang! — is a world-wide artist sketchbook, that starts and ends in an unlikely place,
Mannheim Germany. This project was inspired by many, but mostly from sending sketchbook
pages back and forth to another artist and good friend in the USA. Through our irregular but
sometimes highly involved exchanges, I was reminded of how my own work is influenced by the
work and processes of others. This coupled with a little pressure to return another eye stunner
made the experience extremely rewarding and challenging. I thought I would expand on my
private, on-going project and do the same but try to involve as many others as possible.
day and age of digital blips and beeps, I would like to reintroduce the soulfully real sketchbook
that we will all be a part of its making. This tangible thing has got to be physically
delivered/mailed- participation will require leaving the house and going to the post office.

Happy New Year one and all! My local customs officers are really warming-up to my semi-regular visits to their office at the harbor. So keep the eye-stunners rolling in! I got my kids stitching together the signatures and prepping for delivery to local artists to fill the adjoining, empty spreads.
Tell your friends to visit here and hit/click P-ART-ICIPATE and crank some eye-pop-raunch!
