THE SKETCHBOOK PROJECT

It arrived!!!! My Sketchbook arrived...
What is The Sketchbook Project? It's like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks. The tour will start in New York in April 2012. Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the world. 
It's an annual thing. I've been wanting to participate in the last 2 years but then I've always decided not to, too worried about my busy schedule and whether I'd be able to do it. Not this year. This year I'm doing it!!! Paid for my book and it's already arrived!!!! 
There are 30 themes you can choose from for your sketchbook. I chose "Forks and Spoons". Not sure where it'll take me but I'll post photos on facebook as the ideas start to unravel. 
I have to mail the book back by the end of January. There are 32 pages in the book plus 4 cover pages - 36 pages total, meaning I should complete a drawing every three days! 
The best part? After the tour, my sketchbook along all the other ones will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where it'll be available for the public to view. I may need to take a special trip to NYC...
