I had a dream last night that all thousand sketches were printed and mounted onto 8″ square photo blocks and displayed around a huge gallery. The display was for sale for $2,000,000 for the whole set. Half to the dealer.
It looked really good, people loved it, thousands of people were looking very intently at the whole project. I like to think of this as one project, not a lot of separate sketches.
A few thumbnails to get the feel, though they were in one single line in the dream:
I have done it. The Gallery with five presentations is ready for viewing. It has been great to select images and make some new ones.
Many of the images originated in the Thousand Sketches – but I have sometimes tweaked them. I have also literally used the work here as “sketches” to produce more complete work.
Have a look!
Thousand Sketches is a completed project. 1000 sketches – done.
I am still sketching though, see my current work here In this moment…
Here is a the sketch I posted today, there is other new material in In this moment… My Art Journal!

The links are broken but the images are in http://www.psyberspace.walterlogeman.com — Category Art.
Here is the image linked to here originally. It’s one I love, and was used for the NZAP conference. Challenge and Change
It is summer and here is a re-run. But you may not have seen it, I hardly did! It was not even linked into my Video Category. I enjoyed watching it, it has inspired me to make a few more. This was first posted October 29 2006, just a month or so into the project. I intended to keep making videos, but just doing the sketches took over my life. The time to bring out some of the best in the project with music, narration & images is still ahead! Even more I’d like to make them about the stuff I am doing now. Stay tuned.
The video re-captures for me how my journey into art began. If I say so myself I like the closing line, “What I want has very little to do with it.”
My first Thousand Sketches video on YouTube
I am pleased to see I have made this list of 101 Top Art Blogs. Thanks Kim for all the effort you put in to compile this list. It is a useful list, there are many artists there I really like.
And Thousand Sketches is 51 on Top Blog.
The last Thousand Sketches image #1000 Departing Force, will representing the whole Thousand Sketches project as an entry in be in the Saatchi SHOWDOWN round between 31-12-2007 and 07-01-2008 – you can vote for it!
“In this Moment” is where I write my art, artists, art philosophy and ideas.
