The Sketchbook Project 2018
The moment I heard about the Sketchbook Project, I had to get involved. Since 2006, The Brooklyn Art Library has done a phenomenal job bringing together over 70,000 artists from around the world and is almost entirely crowded sourced.
How does it work?
Buy a sketchbook. I would recommend digitizing. It’s amazing that they provide this service. Afterward, you receive a unique URL and can always go visit your sketchbook again via web. You also get to see have many people have viewed it.
They have specific themes that are suggested. However, they will not toss your book in the East River if go your own direction. Sketch, collage, write, whatever floats your boat.
Submit by the due date. Now the really cool part happens. Your sketchbook, along with thousands of other submissions go on tour with The Brooklyn Library. This year they have a 3-city tour. If you can’t make a date, they have a vast online library. You can find my book, Los Amantes within the collection.
