For the last few years I have participated in The Sketchbook Project. It’s a nifty little show that invites artists of all ages and levels to fill out a sketchbook and send it in. It then becomes a part of the library at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. During the following year, the sketchbooks all go on a rock tour of the US and a few other countries; they set up in lots of cities and invite everyone to come view the sketchbooks for free. Often the venues are fun and interesting. I recommend going in a group so you can all check out sketchbooks, trade and view them as a group.
Anyway, I decided on a theme of ‘Unknown SteamPunk Inventions’ for my Sketchbook this year and here’s the pictures I drew. I have for the last few years, rebinded my book and changed the page layout. I like for my books to be an adventure in discovery and surprise and delight. Like in years past, I got lots of great ideas, many of which will develop into bigger ideas and actual works of art.
