Art House Co-Op has started The Sketchbook Project: Library. Everyone who signs up gets a Moleskine sketch book to fill up any way they’d like. However, each Moleskine is barcoded and themed. I got mine yesterday, with the theme of “It’s not easy being green”. I immediately misunder-read this as “It ain’t easy being green.” So, my first sketch is wrong. But my second sketch makes good the bad with its own piece of art.
The entire project has to be completed and back to Art House Co-Op by December 1, 2009. From there, it will be on tour across the country with all the other completed sketchbooks.
I will be posting all the pages from my sketchbook here on the blog, regardless of how each piece comes out. This will be a fun month or two! My intention is to focus on graphite and pen & ink (Micron .05’s and .01’s). However, I have no idea where this will lead. I hope to see unexpected developments and evolution of method, subject matter, and execution. Here we go!
