Originally released as part of the very limited-edition artist book "Scribbles in a Sandstorm", this excerpt from Los Angeles-based artist Carol Es's sketchbook is now available from Chance Press as a standalone publication. Drawn somewhere between insomnia and dreaming, these sketches suggest the multilayered oil and mixed-media canvases for which Es has become renowned, but in a more vital, immediate state. Readers familiar with the artist will recognize familiar tropes from her work (including the momentous birth of Dan), but this work is for the uninitiated as well... an outsider artist herself, Es's sketches turn no one away, instead communicating emotions fundamental to the human experience in a deceptively simple manner.
The trade edition is hand-sewn in Canson Mi-Teintes wrappers with an archivally-printed cover pastedown. Limited to 30 copies.
