Jane Davies here. I've taken a bit of a hiatus from posting on The Sketchbook Challenge this summer due to an overload of other obligations, but I have been checking in frequently and LOVE the posts that have gone up! Everyday Objects has been a real challenge! But I finally found a way in: making collages from everyday objects - in this case, junk mail and discarded paperbacks. I'd gotten stuck on the idea of drawing objects, and that just hasn't been my mode this summer. These were inspired by Melinda Tidwell and Kurt Nimmo, both of whom I found on Flickr. They both make beautiful and concise use of found text from paperbacks and magazines.

These are all 8"x8" on paper. Thanks for visiting!
