The Sketchbook Project

I've just participated in the sketchbook project and waiting for my own sketchbook to be delivered from America. Make sure you order yours before October to be part of the sketchbook tour in 2011..

Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.
After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.
Anyone - from anywhere in the world - can be a part of the project. To participate and have us send you a sketchbook that will go on tour, start by choosing a theme to the right.

Each artist is sent the same blank Moleskine sketchbook. We've only got two rules: first, the book must be used in some way - no sending us back an empty book or a completely different book! Second, the sketchbook must stay within its original dimensions (because we don't want to have to provide an extra suitcase just for your book while we're touring the country).
Each book will be given a barcode so we can easily catalog it into The Brooklyn Art Library system. Once we catalog it, artists will be able to track where on the tour their book is viewed and how many times someone pulled it from the shelf - we want to make sure you can stay connected with your sketchbook!
The availability of sketchbooks vary each day, so sign up quickly to reserve the one you want! You have the option to choose the kind of Moleskine and the color of the cover when you add the project to your cart.

For my drawings i wanted to make my sheets very experimental with mark making to re-create some of the images that had inspired me from space and also my attempts at marbling onto paper too..

SPACE The Final Frontier

The concept for my final major project is based around space and technology. I didn't want to focus on typical space themes such as astronauts and the planets but on something more visually interesting such as space dust and all the fab colours and patterns you can find with-in them. Heres a few examples of my research...
