I've always been a fan of Mike Kline's art.so when he invited me to participate in a sketchbook exchange with him and 10 other artists, I couldn't say no. We each start off with a Moleskine journal of our choice, (I chose one of the A4 blank journals.) and the way it works is that you do 5 pieces in each book then send it off to the next person. (2 of each of the 5 being collaborative pieces with the person before/after you.) Soooo, I'm struggling a bit with the idea that I'm about to put my own sketchbook in the mail and won't get it back for an entire year. And in that there is a big lesson in letting go. If you would like to follow along, the group blog is located at Moleskine Exchange.
