This year I took part in The Sketchbook Project. Rather than have a random theme, I chose “Creatures” as I love filling my sketchbooks with little characters, mythical creatures and sketches of various animals. It was an excellent challenge that I recommend for any one who likes to draw, sketch or doodle. My favourites from my book are Old Man Ent, the Thoughtful Goblin and the bushy bear-like guy with the curly antlers.
What’s The Sketchbook Project and how does it work? - Well, When you sign up, they send you a sketchbook and provide you with a theme. All you do is fill up the sketchbook and send it back by the deadline. The books go on a travelling exhibition and become part of the Brooklyn Art Library. You can find out more about it or sign up to take part in the 2014 exhibition here.
