The Sketchbook Project at the Brooklyn Art Library is a marvelous concept – check it out http://www.sketchbookproject.com/. My finished sketchbook is definitely the rough product of a fun learning process – I used it to explore one of my favorite techniques, which is bordering my sketches. Some of the books I saw last spring at the Brooklyn Art Library were anything but rough, but when I started this book I didn’t have the bandwidth or the studio space to do what so many artists did, which was to completely reconstruct the book using fancy papers, fabric, etc. So I decided to treat it like a “real” sketchbook, where I doodle and think and write. And the best part is – it’s done! And mailed! Feels like quite an accomplishment! Watch for it when the Sketchbook Project comes to a town near you!
