The Sketchbook Project: “Like a Concert Tour, But with Sketchbooks”

Attention creative minds! Have you heard of The Sketchbook Project? If not, stop what you are doing and check out their website (here). The Sketchbook Project invites anyone, from anywhere, to participate in the 2011 traveling exhibition that showcases thousands of sketchbooks filled with hand-drawn images in themes (of your choice) such as “Revenge,” “Boys and girls,” and “Secret codes.” For $25, participants receive their own blank 5.5 x 8.5″ sketchbook, and every single person who completes their book and mails it back, post-marked January 15, 2011 will be featured in a traveling exhibition at museums and galleries across the United States and then archived into The Brooklyn Art Library.

According to their website, sketchbooks are also coded with their own individual UPC code so that every time the book is viewed, its artist can opt receive an e-mail or a text message alerting you what city it was viewed in and the first name of the person browsing through it (well, only as long as the viewer provides their name). Finally, artists may provide their biography and contact information or website address inside the cover of their sketchbook. The deadline to sign up for The Sketchbook Project is October 31, 2010.
