the sketchbook project
Art House Co-op's The Sketchbook Project is best described as being "like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks." According the the Art House Co-op website, the project has grown to an astonishing 28,834 artists from 94 different countries, with thousands of sketchbooks that will go on tour around the United States in 2011. At the end of the tour, the sketchbooks will be housed at The Brooklyn Art Library in Brooklyn, New York.
Naturally, I had to be one of the 28,834 artists. I signed up and was sent a plain, 13cm x 21cm kraft-covered Moleskine Cahier notebook. Upon joining the project, you could either choose one of several themes provided or have one randomly selected for you— I chose the theme Boys and Girls, with my interpretation being The Boys and the Girl. These are cropped previews of what I've been working on:
I do hope I can fill the entire 80 page book with drawings before the January 15 deadline!
