My Creative Space

A while back, I signed up for The Sketchbook Project (I talk about it here). The idea behind this project is to create a collection of sketchbooks, filled around the world - each a reflection of the artists' environments & inspirations. The collection will be on tour in March 2011 & then permanently housed at the Brooklyn Art Library. I'm thrilled to be able to have my work included!

As I mentioned, I chose the red moleskine & went with the "facing forward" theme. I received my notebook in good time & have been dabbling in it ever since. Most of the pages I've started on are not finished - this notebook has been a place where I use up any leftover paint & collage scraps from my artistic endeavours. I also write & sketch over things & generally just make a fun mess of it.

Want to see my progress? The pages are in order, starting with the front cover:

"Wisdom is knowing when to change your mind."

So obviously there's still a lot of work to be done! As such, this sketchbook will be in & out of my creative space - you're sure to see it again soon!

Did you sign up for The Sketchbook Project? If not, it isn't too late! If so, I'd love to see/hear about your progress!

I signed up back in the summer and...haven't even attempted to start sketching yet! (Bought one for my artist bf too and he is in the same boat!) I'm hoping to get some solid progress once my huge craft show is over. Love what you've done so far! Can't wait to see more!
