Sketchbook Project (for 2011) Page 1
This is the first page of my Sketchbook Project 2011. I’m really excited about this opportunity. There is a link on my side column that has all the details but basically when you sign up they send you a sketchbook to fill however you want. They do give you themes to pick from.
My theme is: “Face in the crowd”
I’m doing my own take on that theme by crowding my faces with all sorts of flowers and patterns.
Once you pick your theme and fill your journal you send it back to the Brooklyn Art Library where it will live permanently apart from the tour it will be taking in 2011. Every sketchbook will have a bar code on the back which will enable them to email you every time someone looks through your journal. How cool is that?! Sketchbook Project 2011 will have a tour starting in March 2011 where all the journals submitted for this project will go on tour just like a concert to major cities libraries where people can look through your sketchbook. There are about 40 pages in this little journal so I figure if I do one page a day I may be finished by the end of summer. Hmmmm 1 a day………I think I can handle that!! I have to think of it that way or it’s a little overwhelming.
So here it is page 1 of this Sketchbook Project 2011. The journey begins(O:
