" It's like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks. "

The Sketchbook Project World Tour 2012

"The Sketchbook Project is a traveling exhibition of sketchbooks created by artists like you.

Anyone – from anywhere in the world – can be a part of the Project.

To participate and receive a blank sketchbook that will join our 2012 tour, start by choosing a theme.

I signed up for 2011, but somehow never finished and sent it in. the theme was "coffee and cigarettes" (how fun). This year my theme is basically no theme: Untitled. I am going to finish this time.
