New for 2011 - Participating in a Sketchbook Exchange!

Moleskine Exchange Round 3 2nd in my own book

I've always been a fan of Mike Kline's 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.

I love your illustrations! A traveling project like this can be really inspiring. It makes you work in ways different than normal and the results can be really exciting. Knowing your work will leave and end up with someone else along with a lot of great art changes the way one works. I am so glad to see you do this.

Cool images indeed! Sounds like a fun project. i should try something like that sometime or introduce the concept in one of my art classes as a test.
