the sketchbook project

 Tracy and I both decided to participate in the sketchbook project which may be touring in your town.  We paid a fee and were sent a sketchbook to fill.  We had to pick a theme from their list.  Mine was "Things That Changed Other Things".  Tracy's was "Dirigible & Submersibiles".
 He printed out his journal pages from his regular journal and rebound them into the book.  I added photocopies into mine....all 48 pages full.  Anything was fair game according to the rules.
 They had extended the deadline from jan. 15th to the 18th, which gave us the day that was needed to complete it.  whew.
Can't wait to see the show when it hits seattle.  This is the inside of Tracy's.

  8. The Sketchbook Project came to St. Louis a few years ago and it was fabulous. Be sure to allow *a lot* of time to view it. Like days, lol. Seriously, it was that cool as I feel sure you can imagine.
    And yours (you & Tracy) - oh my oh my. They are gorgeous.

  10. Love to see posts from you, Teesha. The Sketchbook Project is coming to my state in July. The venue is several hours away from where I live but I'm going to try and get there.

  11. The books look wonderful and full of your signature creativity! I hope I get to see the show...

    I tried to start a collaborative journal once, but no one worked in it, and eventually I got it back, empty. :-( It's full of my own drawings, sketches, etc, now, but there was a time when I thought it might be collaborative. How does one get that going?

  13. Wow...I'm always happy when I see your journal pages ;) I started mine early this year and I still had things to finish down to the wire...oui...deadlines are what motivate me. Wish I was going to be in Daytonna this year when they are there on tour but we're going in June this year instead of July. Guess I'll have to go to NY someday. So happy to be in the company of a true ArtJournal Queen (and King ;) Fondly, Roberta

  19. Teesha, I also have a book in the Sketchbook Project and went to the opening in Brooklyn. It was amazing. There were 10,000 books all on shelved along the wall. I am glad I live close enough that I will be able to visit over and over when they are permanently installed in the Brooklyn Art Library

  22. I love the back page of your book. What great free advertisement. And when someone checks out your book and falls in love with it they will fall in love with your blog too. OMG! You just gave me a great idea. I could print pages from my journal and blog about the time when my daughter had the brain tumor and bind it all together as a book and give to her on her next surgery anniversary. I have until next Feb. to get it all together. Thanks for the idea!

  23. Hi Teesha! I've followed your work for several years; it's always been exciting but now with the addition of black & white & even some earth tones, it seems to be evolving and getting better and better. Am so glad to have found out about The Sketchbook Project as I was reading your blog - I just sent off for mine for 2012. Congratulations on the addition of your studio downtown for teaching and play! I hope you will visit my sketch-journal blog sometime at http://artyology.wordpress.com.
