I've cut and glued and photographed and processed my little drawings for the Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project.
The book, with the original drawings, is ready to be mailed off to the library, where it will become part of a traveling exhibit of people's art.
While the sketchbook project is closed for this year, the Library has other projects going. Each project seems to involve filling a small notebook with something like story or photos or . . . and mailing it in to the Library, where it is exhibited with others of its ilk: A fun thing to do for yourself or with a group, maybe with children.
Meanwhile, enjoy the movie of the sketchbook, at
This is my first stab at "movie." I tried to photograph the sketches so they looked like part of a notebook--which they now are. The best part of this sketchbook is all the different papers I used; it's tactilely pleasing.
Keeping a sketchbook is good for drawing skills. It's also pleasant to have a little book that records drawings from a particular time and place, in this case, Austin in November 2010.
I am looking forward to seeing all the notebooks, when they come to Austin.
