The Sketchbook Project 2011

In 2009 the people at the Art House Co-op decided to try something different with the traditional sketchbook. They gathered them from artists across the globe & they took them on tour across the US. Thus was the beginning of an amazing & fun experiment called The Sketchbook Project.

This year I was lucky enough to find the time to participate. So you ask, "What is this Sketchbook Project & how do I find your glorious sketchbook"? Okay so you probably aren't asking yourself that, but I can just tell myself you are.

I opted to have my sketchbook as part of the nightmare collection & it features some of the randomness that inhabits my head while I sleep. Though word of advise to you the viewer, I would try not to dwell to much on the green slide.

As part of my submission to the project I choose to have my book digitized & placed online. So as soon as the Art House gets it up & live I will let you all know so those of you that didn't make it out to the tour can check out my doodles. If you wander your way over to the Alice Graphix page on Facebook you can see a few of the images I did manage to scan before having to send the book in.

The kind people at the Art House have created this nifty little map so you can check out if the tour is coming somewhere near you.
