The Sketchbook Project
Back in 2011 – I participated in The Sketchbook Project as a way to give myself time to work on something other than my main body of work. “The Sketchbook Project, a crowd-sourced library that features 33,860 artists’ books contributed by creative people from 135+ countries.” In short the participants are given a blank sketchbook and depending on when you signed up you have up to year to work before it is sent back and becomes part of the permanent collection of sketchbooks housed at the Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. People are encouraged to visit the Brooklyn Art Library and explore the sketchbooks in person.
The main portion of my sketchbook included a hollowed-out section that contained 9 keys attached to hidden retractable key rings.
You can view my sketchbook via their online library.
I was fortunate enough to have a few people notice my sketchbook when visiting the Brooklyn Art Library and decide to share it online. I have listed a few links below.
