I have some friends who have been using found objects as sketchbooks. They will use anything from religious tracts to old journals as a drawing surface. I was at my local secondhand shop the other day and I thought I would give it a try. I purchased a reprint of a classic children's picture book called "MITTENS." I took it home and quickly proceeded to vandalize the front cover. I cut out chunks of binder's board and ended up with this.
