This is my sketchbook, the little notebook I’ll be filling from now until January 15th for The Sketchbook Project.

The sketchbooks are sent back by January 15th 2011 and then they’re taken on tour before eventually being placed forever in the Brooklyn Art Library for anyone to read. Each sketchbook has a barcode on it so it’s possible to track how often someone reads your sketchbook:
