The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project is organized through The Brooklyn Art Library, New York. You sign up on their website, pay for a sketchbook and when they send it to you, you choose one of the titles they provide, fill it up with images and then send it back to the Library. They digitize your book as well and then send it on tours around America. It also becomes an addition to the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library. People from all over the world have done sketchbooks, and anyone can do it.

Story telling has never been a feature of my art practice, but The Sketchbook Project has encouraged me to do just that. I have made a visual narrative, much like a silent film, so I hope you enjoy your journey too.

If you are interested in doing a sketchbook yourself, or finding out more about it, then check out this link

All sketchbooks measure 17.75 x 12.75 cm
