OK, now what?

I signed up for the Sketchbook Project. The idea is to sketch on a theme (I selected "in flight;" thought it would work well with my interest in birds) and create a sketchbook that will then be submitted to the project in January 2011. Pretty much anything goes--sketchbooks don't include just sketches anymore.

You can rebind the sketchbook, have pages that fold out, use paint, ink, fabric, etc on the pages as long as you keep the original dimensions. If you're interested in the project, go to!

The sketchbooks will be on tour and be part of the permanent colection at The Brooklyn Art Library.

There is something intimidating about a new sketchpad. I've read of people scribbling all over the cover just to make it seem "used." What will I do? More later!
