“The practice of making my art public is a new one, because often drawing is a coping mechanism for me. Scanning & posting my drawings feels scary because my sketchbook acts as a visual diary of my life, but ultimately it seems worth the vulnerability.”
Phoebe Funderburg-Moore uses her sketchbook like a visual diary, reflecting on experiences and collecting her thoughts. Along with the sketchbook practice, Phoebe makes murals, comics, album covers, t-shirts, and more. She grew up in Philadelphia and currently studies music and art at Goucher College in Baltimore. Last year Phoebe went to Italy, where she studied art, learned Italian, and worked as an artist’s assistant. To see more of Phoebe’s work, click here.
We will be posting pages from Phoebe’s sketchbook, and those of other undergraduate art students, throughout the year.
If you are an undergraduate student and would like to submit work to the Undergraduate Sketchbook feature, send a note with scanned images (Format: 840 pixels wide at 72 dpi) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to put UNDERGRAD SKETCHBOOK in the subject line.
