Before & After: Jenna Hartzell’s Sketchbook Page

Jenna Hartzell's Sketchbook pages 1 & 2


As Open Studios is still 9 months away, most of the artists on the 2011 Tour are focusing on other projects. Ohio-born artist, Jenna Hartzell, has recently finished her first sketchbook for Brooklyn-based Art House Co-op’s 2011 Sketchbook Tour: “it’s like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks.” In this post she shares with us her 1st and 2nd page, before & after. Hartzell describes her pages as “East meets SLO” telling us she loves the look of New York Brownstones, and since the Sketchbook Tour begins in New York, she wanted to represent NY at the beginning.  SLO is represented with the bike, as bike riding is so much a part of SLO culture.  Hartzell’s intent was to “invite the viewer to take a journey” through her sketchbook.” Each participant of the Sketchbook Tour is given a theme to serve as inspiration; Jenna’s theme was “things found on restaurant napkins.” To see more of Jenna’s artwork visit her blog.

  1. I love the birds on the wire in the foreground! How fun to be part of the Sketchbook Tour. I have heard a lot about this, looking forward to it’s making it’s way out to LA or San Francisco.
