This past weekend I went to Full Sail to check out the Sketchbook Project Tour. You basically register to be apart of the project, pick a theme, and then you just create. Simple, right? =)
“The Sketchbook Project creates a space to share your process with the world.”
As a viewer, you can just pick a theme (or country) and then they gave you 2 sketchbooks at a time with those guidelines. You can return & check out as many sketchbooks as you want.
I don’t know what I really expected before I went but I was actually really inspired (so much so that I think I’m going to participate in the 2012 tour). Those sketchbooks are such an intimate part of someone if you really think about it. You have the opportunity to see their train of thought & their ideas all bound in a tiny little sketchbook. So cool to me.
Anyway, I took some snapshots of some of my favorites & I wanted to share. =) Enjoy!
Kathleen Deep – Theme: Sleepless
“Piece by piece his face comes together in my nightmare, in this torturous dream. Who is it?”
Tracy Loughlin (Austrailia) – Theme: First Thing in the Morning, Last Thing at Night
Minchaya Chayosumrit (Thailand)- Can’t remember the theme, sorry!
“My head is full of tomorrow’s conversation…”
Overall, it was an unexpectedly inspiring day. In fact, we went to Sam Flax afterwards & stocked up on some acrylic goodies and I spent the rest of the day painting. =)
