The Sketchbook Project 2011

The Sketchbook Project 2011 was a fun experience.

It's simple really.

You give them $25 and they give you a sketchbook and a subject. You sketch in the sketchbook, mail it in, and they take it on the road.

The road trip travels around America to 11 major cities along with another 30,000 sketchbooks.

Finally, it is scanned and placed online for all to see. Or if they want to they can personally visit the Brooklyn Library in New York for a close-up-and-personal view.

I participated this year and you can see my 2011 Sketchbook in person.  Just ask for call number 026.6-5 when you visit Brooklyn. Not going there anytime soon?  Well, you can see it here on line.

It's not too late to signup for the 2012 Sketchbook Project. Get your sketch journals on the road!

I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train. -Oscar Wilde
