Any material on creativity and art invariably suggests that artists do a lot of sketching. This is most definitely true for art quilters. It is also one of those areas where my best intentions still have not been manifested in sketching on a daily basis.
So, when I found an entry in Linda Miller's Following the Thread blog on something called the Sketchbook Project, I got excited. The project involves several thousand individuals throughout the world creating sketchbooks over a two and a half month period which are then turned in and eventually housed in the Brooklyn Art Library. First the books tour through some major US cities.
If you are interested in participating, there are a number of themes for the books that you can choose from. There are few rules - don't return a blank book and don't expand the book in size in any way. You have until October 31 to sign up.
It is a great way to create a habit that I hope I will keep well past one sketch book!
