I'm a 22-year old Studio Art and Performance Studies student at Lake Forest College, Illinois. I am originally from Finland, but had the opportunity of doing high school in India, from where I ended up studying in the US. Throughout my life I have started countless sketchbooks that are now full of countless unfinished sketches. For this project I decided to choose some of those sketches and give them a new life through redrawing, continuing, and collaging. Some of the drawings are from early childhood, whereas some of them are rather recent. The experience of completing the sketchbook was nostalgic, as well as self-reflective - it gave me a chance of evaluating the changes in my technical development and remembering scenarios in which the original sketches were created. The theme "Right here, right now," is therefore approached with the mindset of finally finishing the drawings I had once started, combining the past with the time I spent on the Sketchbook Project.
