The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

I have been inspired to challenge myself.  Last fall I took a freehand drawing class that I had a love hate relationship with.  I loved finding out that I could actually draw pretty well, but I hated having to keep up a sketchbook (we were required to sketch 4-5 pages a day).  This was a bit of a challenge for me as I've got the two kids and not much free time to, as my teacher said, sit at a cafe and sketch things I see. My reality was more like sitting a the kitchen table and sketching the dirty breakfast dishes after I dropped the kids at school. 

However, I just found out about the Sketchbook Project: 2011 Tour. They send you a sketchbook, you fill it with drawings, and send it back by January 15th.  Then your sketchbook along with all the others submitted goes on exhibition in a tour that visits Brooklyn, Austin, San Francisco, Portland, Atlanta, and Chicago. How cool it that!
