the Sketchbook Project

by Nathanael

I’m really excited to participate in this project. I just ordered my sketchbook today! My theme is “the best story ever told.” Sounds kind of daunting, but I feel like it gives me a broad range of possibilities. When sketching, I normally gravitate towards typography and portraits; either of those (or some combination of both) just might work! Here’s a summary of the project from their Web site:

Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.

Anyone – from anywhere in the world – can be a part of the project. To participate and have us send you a sketchbook that will go on tour, start by choosing a theme here.

I’ll keep you updated on the progress!
