Derek Jarman’s Sketchbooks

Follwing on from my research into Derek Jarman- the sketchbooks of the film maker have given me some inspiration for a portfolio format.

‘With their snippets of poetry, drawings, film storyboards, thoughts, plans and photographs, Derek Jarman’s sketchbooks offer a rare insight into an artist’s mind at work.’


I like the way he adds snippets of anything and everything that interests him which leads to an understanding of the way his mind words. There is a sporadic, collectors nature to the books which perhaps expresses the nature of Dungeness. I am going to experiment with this type of format and maybe look into ordering some different paper types.
