Sketchbook with a Deadline

*UPDATE* I have ordered my sketchbook…

I came across this quite randomly, and wish I’d heard about it before.  It’s called The Sketchbook Project.  You sign up to receive a blank sketchpad by post from the Brooklyn Art Library in New York,  fill it up however you want based on a theme and send it back. Then your work will be catalogued in the Brooklyn Art Library and published in the Limited Edition art book series.  This is so exciting!  The possibilities… I think this may be added to the list of things I want to do this year (it’s a vague, meandering list; I really should write it down sometime).

So, who’s with me?

(I kinda like the tie-in with our blog-name too….heh)

    The blog looks great. I like the idea of a communal arty blog. Good luck with your sketchbook!

      Yup, still time by the looks of their website. It’s limited, 5000 sketchbooks, but there seems to be still 1,500 left;-) Do it, do! Tricia has hers ordered; I think Lisa may have too;-)
