…The Sketchbook Project brings art to the people?

The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project is an art experiment where artists from anywhere in the world can sign up to receive a Moleskine Cahier sketchbook, and once they fill it with art related to various themes (ranging from “It will be fun, I swear” and “Jackets, blankets, and sheets” to “I’m sorry I forgot you” and “Things found on restaurant napkins”) they will send it back to the Art House Co-Op who will tour them around the country before finally adding them to the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.

Sketchbook Project Examples

The only rule is that the book must be used in some way, and that it must stay within its original dimensions. Everything else is up to the artist, so if you’d like to participate, be sure to sign up on their site by October 31.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Project 365?

Cat Killer

Avid Liongoren is a man on a mission that doesn’t have an end: On his site, called Project 365, he creates daily illustrations that he then shares with the world.

The first year was sketchbook doodles, then monsters of the city, then a comic book of his life, and now, he’s drawing daily monsters that will haunt your dreams.

Check it out to follow along as he progresses through the project, and maybe it’ll inspire you to start a project of your own.

…It’s Things Thursday: Walls Notebook?

Walls Notebook

The Walls Notebook is a sketchbook that’s filled with 80 ‘clean’ New York City walls for you to write, paste, draw or doodle on.

Walls Notebook

The interesting and inspirational backdrops are meant to serve as a blank slate for the graffiti artist inside of you to create upon, and with a little practice, you’ll be giving Shepard Fairey a run for his money in no time.

…It’s Things Thursday: Buy My Sketchbook?

Buy My Sketchbook

A sketchbook is like a sneak peak into an artist’s soul. Filled with whatever comes to mind, they can take days to complete, and contain some of the rawest and rarest pieces of an artist’s career.

Buy My Sketchbook wants to sell you a piece of that action to raise money for the Art Buy The Inch art gallery, and is auctioning off various sketchbooks to do so.

To enter, just browse through the various pages, and if you like what you see, place a bid. The highest bid after a book is completed wins, and you’ll be the proud new owner of something that usually doesn’t get sold until after death.
