The Sketchbook Project: 2011

The Sketchbook Project: 2011
Last month my lovely reader Lisa from Australia sent me the link to this wonderful project thinking I might like to participate...and I did! Thanks Lisa!
Read more about the project here and think about joining too!
The Sketchbook Project: 2011
The blank Moleskine arrived at my door this week!
I had some time yesterday to personalize the cover before I break it in.
Blank Moleskine
I glued these pretty marbleized end papers and a butterfly bookplate
that my friend Sofia sent me from New Zealand.
Marbleized end papers
I chose "In Flight" from a long list of available themes to work with...obviously ;)
I have to send back my completed sketchbook by January 2011
and I'll be sharing the process with you. I hope you decide to participate too!
Sketchbook
The completeted sketchbook will be living at the Brooklyn Art Gallery where it will be barcoded & available for the public to view. So if you live in NY you be able to check out my Sketchbook and take it home to view for a few days :)
And the cool thing is that I'll be able to know who checks out the sketchbook!
Fun, fun, fun!

*Molly Amanda: So funny you mentioned it this morning!
I was writing this post when I read your blog comment.

What a lovely idea, I wish I lived in NY to view yours.

Cool idea but a little intimidating. I showed my sketch book to my boyfriend's mom a couple months back when I was visiting them. It felt really awkward for me considering I have tonnes of raw and uncensored ideas.
That reminds me. I desperately need a new sketch book.

You are brave. Have fun!

They had just the perfect theme for you! :)

I'm taking part in it too, I got my sketchbook a week ago with the theme storybook. But I have no idea what to do with it yet!

Oh amazing, I am going to order my sketchbook tomorrow for this when I have been paid! So exciting - did you opt to be able to view yours online as well? xx

What a lovely idea! Inspiring and challenging... I'm sorry I'm not an artist to take part in the project:(! But I could try and make my own sketchbook, just for fun... Good luck!

I wish I could see all the pages, then live in new york so i could actually hold it in my little hands... =) I'm sure it will be gorgeous!

what a wonderful idea!! I am in NY!!! Yeah!!!

Gosh, the check-out idea is a brave one. I don't know how I'd feel about letting original art---and not just mine---go out the door ... of a gallery. But I guess they KNOW what they're doing, eh? Keep us posted every step of the way ... I can't wait to see what you & the others involved come up with.

I am also participating in the Sketchbook Project with the theme In Flight! :) Still waiting for mine in the mail though... but I am very excited! Can't wait to see the progression of your sketchbook!

It's so great that you decided to participate! I can't wait to read the updates. I 've read about this project a few weeks ago, now I'm tempted to try it too!

Blogger Megan V said...

Oh I am so excited to find out about this!!! It is such a brilliant project and I really want to participate, too! I am having a hard time chosing a theme. I need to pick one that doesn't feel limiting, you know? Although... I can draw whatever I want in it anyway since there is no one to say otherwise! :D xo
I'm also unsure of whether to pay to have it digitized. I don't know if that feels worth it to me... hmm..

This is such a cool idea, thanks for sharing, Geninne! I think I´m going to join in the fun too.

I was wondering if (and hoping) you had signed up! My empty sketchbook is sitting on my desk waiting for me to overcome intimidation. I can't wait to see your finished product! I think the project is touring a few cities besides NYC, right?

I just signed up!!! My theme is "And then there were none." Kind of nervous (really nervous,) but looking forward to the challenge. Yikes!!!!

Wow, what a fun project! I look forward to seeing your sketchbook progress, it already looks lovely :)

Wow - what a fun project!
I'm thinking of doing it too.
It did say anyone could do it... I might be an artist in hiding, but it is probably time to stop thinking about it and just do it already!
Thanks for sharing.

I signed up as "A Scavenger" and got mine a few weeks ago. I've decided to spend the summer collecting bits and bobs (tossing them into a pretty box) and will sort through everything and actually start creating my sketchbook in the fall. I love having a REASON to pick up random tidbits that catch my eye. And one of the stops will be in Seattle, so it's like my sketchbook will get to play to its hometown!

It's a lovely idea from your friend. It's suits you..and you picked a lovely theme!

I got mine too, so exciting!!

7/22/2010 2:35 PM  
Blogger kt_kthx said...

Awesome! I got mine in the mail last Thursday, I chose "This is not a Sketchbook" theme, because I'll probably be embroidering the pages instead of drawing/painting!

I'm excited to see what you do with yours, I'll share mine when I put a little more into it!

What a fun project huh?

I've been debating on doing this too...but I think it's too intimidating for me just yet. I've just recently gotten back into doodling and feel very self conscious still. Maybe next years....

Hello Geninne, what a coincidence, your post of The Sketchbook Project. I was planning to make an artistic journal. So, as you, I ordered mine. By the way, I love your job. Tks Ana Veiga

I'm participating too and just finished my cover - I still have to sew it all back together because I changed the paper out for watercolor paper so I have to rebind it. I'll be posting pictures too! Fun stuff!! My theme is inside/outside.

I love your blog! After reading about the Sketchbook Project I decided to sign up myself! Just waiting for my sketchbook to arrive....really excited but so nervous! I never show my sketchbooks so this will take some getting used to

Blogger Holly Knitlightly said...

I love the idea of this so much! I'm still not sure if I should sign up or not. I think I would have a hard time filling it!
I do wish I lived in NYC or close to, so I could view this! :) Maybe I'll have to take a trip there next year to check them out!

I've been looking at this project for awhile (as well as previous arthouse projects) and now i am jumping on your bandwagon...i just ordered a red cahier with the theme "if you lived here..." thanks for inspiring as you often do.

wow, so funny, I've had that site opened on one of my tabs since last week and have been trying to decide whether I had the guts to participate - sounds like fun though. I'm pretty sure your sketchbook will be gorgeous! :)

Blogger emaxian said...

I have to give you a big thank you because I found the Sketchbook project through you and your awesome art blog. I'm going to do it too! Most likely with the sleepless theme because I'm something of an insomniac.

7/23/2010 8:53 PM  
Anonymous Kristy said...

I am so excited you are also playing alone. I am doing the sketchbook project as well, but I chose the theme, ... I'm a Scavenger.

Look forward to watching as your book begins to fill up.

I have just signed up! I have never considered myself an artist, but I do see myself as artistic, so I figured I'd bite the bullet and give it a go.
Thanks for the link and for your very inspirational blog.

so cool i just signed up too. My theme is 'if you lived here' as I'm born and bred in London England. I am not an artist in the way that you are but i think i can have fun and be artistic with this book. Have fun everyone!

Hola, Geninne- thanks to you and Lisa from Australia for sharing about The Sketchbook Project. It is just what I need to help me jump back into my art work.

I participated last year and my theme was "Elephant in the Room." Completing the sketchbook was so gratifying. I did a lot of mixed media work in mine -- collaging, layers of paint and paper etc. Good luck on yours. I'm sure it will be beautiful! I look forward to seeing posts with pictures of your progress.

Yes, i've read about this. Sounds incredible. I would just be hesitant that I might fill some pages with so-so art or ones that didn't work out at all where I scratched out the entire drawing! what do you do then?
