Friendly Reminder- Sketchbook Project 2012!

So As you may have seen, I just posted something to Illustration Friday on Monday morning. I'm really trying to keep up each week with submitting.... 

After submission, I happened to glance at the Ad/ sidebar and what do I see? What is the Ad that has caused me to write a whole post about it? What amazingness was there on that site??  (well I guess I spoiled it in my post title & my images).. It's the Sketchbook Project for 2012!

I didn't even realize when the sign-ups began! (..since October, haha). I admit I totally forgot about it! I didn't want to put it off like I did last year.  So I sucked it up, signed up on the spot! 

I'll (hopefully) be starting school in the Fall, so this will be great practice for the pressure of completing projects on time.  :) 

The theme I picked is Stitches and Folds. The theme is just a jumping-off point, but i plan to keep it around.

  I'm super excited to start. I love that you can rebind and modify the moleskin sketchbook any way that you want to suit your look. :)  (a few tiny rules though)... I love this idea of a traveling art show, and whoever came up with it is genius. 
I can't wait to start!  I missed out last year.  :(  That won't happen again. 

Anyone else join in yet?  

Completed books must be postmarked by Jan 31st 2012. I've got some time, but I'm so pumped I might just explode! Let's hope that motivation is around when my sketchbook is delivered and lasts til Jan 2012..

  1. Thanks for the reminder! I am going to sign up today...I am just debating which topic to pick...

  2. Stitches and Folds sounds like it could lead to interesting places! I think I was a little hasty with mine, not that I don't like it, but with their website not being fully operational...when I picked my theme they only had a dozen or so choices listed, and when I looked back a few days later they had, like, 30! Oh well... :) it'll be fine, I'm sure!
    Good luck. Can't wait to see what you do!

  3. I really wanted to try this, but I've never finished a sketchbook before! It's such a great idea, but I'm too much of a slacker to keep it up! Who knows though! I might just go for it. Good luck on yours!! I'd love to see some photos when you get started :)
