Have you ever felt one image on a page wasn't enough to tell the entire story? I often feel this way. This is when I sketch multiple objects on a single page. I call this a "Sketch Collage". I feel these sketches tell a bigger story/picture of what I was seeing and experienceing.
The very word "collage" means collection or gathering...which is perfect for this approach. The challenge with a "Sketch Collage" is arranging the elements in a way that the page feels organized and balance.
*Any theme will work (travel, garden, event, animals...). I might complete a Sketch Collage in one sitting or I may add images to a page over the span of the trip.
*Have objects such as people or animals pointed in and not out of the page.
*Have some objects overlap each other.
*Use a pencil to layout your ideas.
*Use a border to tie the images together.
*Have a variety of shape and size variety
*With or without words.
