Just signed up for the Sketchbook Project. Had been meaning to do this a while ago but I think I chickened out, came up with reasons why I shouldn't. Apparently all I needed was the reinforcement of some friends. My theme is "facing forward," though I was tempted to pick "you'd be home by now"and do all my sketching on the train. My mind is already abuzz at how I should attack this project — I want to enforce rules, pick concepts, because the idea of filling an entire book and then having other people look at it (hopefully!) really makes me think it needs to be worthy of someone else's time — but let's hope I don't let it jam me up. I think in the end, I'll be better off if I can manage to just go with the flow.
The sketchbooks will be visiting Brooklyn in March, among other cities, if you want to join me at the show!
