I signed up to be part of a fun project recently. It's called the sketchbook project and it is put on by the Art House Co-op in Brooklyn, NY. It seemed like a really good exercise to me. I was hoping to get my creative juices flowing at a more rapid speed. So far it seems be be working for me. I signed up a couple weeks ago and they sent me a 5x8 sketchbook (for 25.00) and a theme. My theme is "Down your Street". Perfect, I walk my dog Lois everyday. I thought I was sure to see lots and lots of fun things down my street. Well, turns out I am looking around with fresh eyes at my surrounding. I look forward to our walk and to getting ideas down in my sketchbook. I thought I would share a few of my recent sketches with you.
