My Little Traveler, Now Online

I am delighted to announce that my sketchbook from the 2011 Sketchbook Project has been digitized and is available for your perusal at the Art House Co-Op web site. Go take a look!

I am so thrilled to see it again; there were drawings I had forgotten. Of course, there's a few mistakes I made, that I cringe slightly to see, but more about that in another post. More than the cringing though, I am delighted by the way it turned out, and by the way it forced me to think outside the Etsy shop and try new things. Some of those things have turned into larger art projects currently in progress that I will share with you soon.

The sketchbook is still on tour around the country, along with all the other submitted sketchbooks. You can see them in Chicago from July 14 -17 and in Winter Park, FL, from July 29-31, and of course, after that at the Brooklyn Art Library. My mom went to see the tour in San Francisco and she said the place was standing room only. Now she wants to do a sketchbook for the 2012 Sketchbook Project and sponsor mine as well. It was a lot of work and time out from my other projects, but I think I might take her up on that offer, because a) as I said, it was invigorating and inspiring, and b) next year the world tour is going to Melbourne and London... maybe we'll just have to go visit the books there.

Hmm. That makes me wonder why I don't have a passport for my son (my other little traveler) yet?
