SKETCHBOOKS

Johns, almost obsessively, makes sketchbooks.  Artworks in themselves; these are quickly filled with images that record specific moments in time and place. Whether precisely measuring and reproducing objects or quickly sketching things of interest, this compulsive need to document life is a meditative process that results in an archive of memories.
