It’s here! The Sketchbook Project

Sketchbook Project: Arrival

This year I was paying attention in time to play along with everyone else and signed up to participate The Sketchbook Project’s 2012 tour. My sketchbook arrived this week and it’s just waiting to be scribbled in.

What’s this all about? It’s an endeavor by the Art House Co-op to collect sketchbooks filled by anyone who wants to participate and take them on a touring show before adding them to the permanent collection of their gallery, the Brooklyn Art Library. Head over to the Sketchbook Project website for more info, and to sign up for a sketchbook for yourself if you’re so inclined.

So now my job is to fill this little book up by the end of the year and send it in. I signed up for the theme “Encyclopedia of” which seemed like a good fit for me. 🙂

What will go in it? Maybe some brainstorming for my garden.  Maybe some warmup sketches for my fundraising pet portrait cards.  Most likely there will be a page or two filled in next weekend for Drawing Day (more on that later…)

Do you have your sketchbook yet?
