The Sketchbook Project 2013

Back in October I discovered The Sketchbook Project and instantly fell in love with the idea of a traveling art library with submissions from all around the world. I signed up, and soon received an adorable little sketchbook with its very own barcode!

I planned on using Prismacolor pens for all of my illustrations, so I knew that the thin paper included with the sketchbook would not do too well. After pulling out the staples and cutting down some Strathmore 400 Medium Drawing paper, I rebound the book using teal embroidery thread.

The project was supposed to be postmarked by January 15th, but I was a little late. It should be received by tomorrow, though! The whole thing is going to be digitalized and posted on my Sketchbook Project profile page, but here are a few sneak peaks before that happens.
