Sketchbook Project 2018-2019

This sketchbook, “Crows”, is my fifth submission to the Brooklyn Sketchbook Project. It is such an amazing community art project. If you don’t know about it, check it out for sure! Meadow and I have each made a different sketchbook to send in, every year, for the past five years. We work on our submissions for months! People from all over the world submit sketchbooks full of all kinds of different mediums and themes, some books go on a road trip in a big bus full of traveling sketchbooks, then they all return to the library where people can visit and view the books for free! It really is amazing! If you are in the NYC area and are visiting Brooklyn, this is a great place to go! Stop in for an hour or a few hours to pour over shelves and shelves and SHELVES full of amazing little self contained works of art!
