This year I am once again participating in The Sketchbook Project (for more information, click on the link on my sidebar). A quick summary for those who don't like links: When you sign up, for a small fee you are sent a sketchbook and a theme (which you can interpret as you like or even ignore....no sketchbook police lurking about). There are some rules, but they are simple and are all about keeping the books a uniform size and free of embellishments that can fall off or hurt someone. The books (last year 28,000 artists from around the world requested books and about 10,000 actually finished theirs) are sent back when completed and then they go on a road trip. Last year we had fun visiting the tour in Brooklyn, NY where it originates and viewing the books of many of our online friends. And some friends in far away places caught the tour in their home towns and got to see our books in person.

My theme this year is Writing on The Wall, and I had fun with it, being pretty literal and just making like a grafitti artist. I actually sent my book back way ahead of the deadline, and look forward to the start of the tour this spring.
