For the last several years I have taken this small journey of filling a sketchbook and sending it off to Brooklyn, NY and then travelling to see it along with the inspiring and incredible sketchbooks that others have filled when the tour comes to my remote corner of the country. The Sketchbook Project has announced that this summer’s 2015 tour will be the last.
I highly encourage you to make a date to see the tour stop near you. The spirit of sharing that surrounds this project is unparalleled in my experience. People have paid to share their art with you and then filled their tiny tomes with treasures that make you laugh and think and oooo and ahhh. And those who come to see what hides inside the covers marvel at the wonders they find and freely share the books they discover, though time is short to see them. It is richly rewarding in camaradarie and inspiration.
