A very good friend of mine from work gave me the most thoughtful gift last Christmas. She purchased a sketchbook from the Brooklyn Art Library.
The Sketchbook Project is the world’s largest library of artists’ books, crowd-sources from every corner of the globe. The project is changing the way creative people share their work while creating a worldwide community resource. By filling a sketchbook which is approximately 20 pages and 5×7, you are joining the movement, adding your voice and becoming a part of something huge. You can draw, write, collage, cut, print, photograph. You can choose a theme and fill the book and send it back by the deadline.
I participated with the project and returned the book in time. I filled the book with sketches, paintings, illustrations, and drawings using the original paper in the book. I didn’t realize that you can switch out the paper until it was too late.
I have ordered my second book. I am going to do some collage and illustration combined.
Here are some of the images I have in my first book.
