Seth from the Altered Page recently wrote about the sketchbook project. Those of you who have been following my blog for a while may recall that I participated in it towards the end of last year. Unfamiliar with the project? It's said to be like a concert tour but with sketchbooks. Over 28,00 people signed up and almost 10,000 sketchbooks were eventually submitted.
Seth was kind enough to check out my sketchbook at the Brooklyn Art Library which is where the tour is kicking off this month.
This project was a personal challenge because I can't draw, had never art journaled before and was a complete departure from the type of textured artwork that I usually create. Whilst I'm not entirely comfortable with what I produced I learnt a lot about myself as part of the process.
Seth's post made me realize that I only ever shared a few of the pages from my sketchbook so I thought I would take the opportunity to share more with you here today.
Did you participate in the project? If you did please feel free to share links to any artwork of your submissions. I love seeing the work of other artists.
I'm hoping to catch the tour when it makes it's way to DC so if you have any suggestions or favorites that you think I should check out be sure to let me know. Have a great weekend.
