Sketchbook Project: 2-7

Sketchbook Project: Official Scans

Here is the cover and the first page of my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project! The opening show is this weekend in New York City at the Brooklyn Art Library. I received an email today that the show will be going on for the entire weekend, not just Saturday. :-)
I will use the best, most favorite sketchbook pages for my portfolio. Let me know which pages you like! More posts to come...

First Post of 2011: the Sketchbook Project & a Thank You

Okay now we're halfway through February...almost into March and I realize that I have not posted an update since December! I am now freelancing and it is a very exciting opportunity for me and it has kept me very busy as an illustrator. :-)
I finally sent off my sketchbook to the Art House Co-Op, the people who are doing the Sketchbook Project.
The opening show and reception is in Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn Art Library. The dates for the Brooklyn show are from February 19-27, 2011. The reception is Saturday, February 19th 12:00-10:00pm. I will be in New York that week so I plan on going!
I hear that signups for the Sketchbook Project 2012 will begin in May. I am debating whether or not to participate for 2012. I plan to wait and see what topics are posted and then go from there...My boyfriend and I are also thinking of doing our own sketchbook together!
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to him for making me a lovely greeting card for Valentine's Day! Please check out his blog and website to look at his amazing work.
I will be posting OFFICIAL SCANS of my sketchbook over the next several days. I will probably have a "daily" post of my sketchbook pages. I also hope to participate in some IF challenges again soon!
