The 2012 Sketchbook project is now online! You can view my project cover to cover online if you can't make it to the tour in person.. Please leave me a comment on the Art House website if you browse the book... It's amazing to me to be able to see and know if people are reading the book... that's why I decided to have it hosted online; so I really hope to hear from you there.
So now as people rev up to participate in the 2013 project, here are my thoughts. Take them or leave them:
I would never place reproductions in the sketchbook. My feeling is that people want to see and hold an actual sketchbook...of new and never before seen artwork...give them a treat just like if they were coming to your home.
The sketchbook quality is wimpy for wet media artists such as myself. You can re-bind the book to suit your needs as long as the finished product stays within the Art House size limits...so do it! I cut heavy paper that I have painted on before and inserted it into the book.
Visit other sketch-books and participate in the entire process! I have a lot of feelings on this.... I'll write them in another extremely long winded post coming soon... grab some popcorn.
In other news...I am working on that stencil giveaway... stay tuned!
