The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition 2012 – Front Cover

In musical notation, „legato“ is a type of articulation, referring to the transition between sounds. Literally, „legato“ means „tied together“, „bound together“. The musical notes or the sounds are „connected“ – between them, there is no or just barely perceptible silence. „Legato“ is indicated by a slur (a curved line) joining the notes that should be played or sung together. Sempre legato means continuously legato.

I gave the cover a vintage look by weathering it with 4 brown toned inktense pencils (Amber, Willow, Madder Brown and Dark), water, inks-water mixtures, hair dryer, ink dripping and splattering (my process on video)
