The Sketchbook Project

Christmas 2013 I was given a sketchbook, from my husband, for a present. Said sketchbook came from The Sketchbook Project, an ongoing and ever growing collection of completed sketchbooks that travel around the US- it’s a little pricy ($25 for a sketchbook and $60 for the sketchbook to be digitized as well.) For more information about this and to get a blank sketchbook yourself, check out their website: www.sketchbookproject.com

Every year I enjoy taking on a new year long drawing project. For 2012 it was a sketch a day and for this year? Well, I’m interested to hear what you have for ideas. I have been so wrapped up in completing this sketchbook (the deadline is March 31st, 2015) that I haven’t given any thought other than “eyes” to a new one.

I would highly suggest checking out what other artists have done with their sketchbooks- some have done pop-up art, others have gone multi-media, some art straight up comic books. It’s really inspiring for me to see what other people put into their books- some of my favorites come from graffiti artists (in the graffiti world they’re called black books.) Here are the contents of mine, from cover to the very end. I want to see what you put in your books so use the hash tag #knowloveknowcolor for a repost on my instagram feed! xo, Ev.
