A new project.
Amanda was telling me about this project and I think it's pretty fantastic. You sign up (there's a $25 fee) and pick a theme. Then you get sent a blank sketchbook and have until January 15, 2011 to fill the pages. After that, the books will go on tour (Portland, ME; Brooklyn, NY; Washington, DC; Atlanta, GA; Winter Park, FL; Chicago, IL; Austin, TX; Seattle, WA; San Francisco, CA) and people will be able to view them. Each sketchbook will receive a barcode so that creators can track their sketchbooks as they travel across the country, seeing when and where their books are viewed.
I think this project will be a great way to reignite those creative parts of my brain that have been getting dusty with disuse. Let me know if anyone else signs up--it would be fun to know that we're all in this together.
