Sketchbook Project: Lovely little mention on Made by Nelle!

Just ran across a lovely blog post by Nelle of Made by Nelle about her Sketchbook Project and a few of her favorite participating artists and I was included in her list!! Her sketchbook is amazing....LOADS of texture, collages and beautiful color. Love this next one in particular.

Her theme was "If you lived here." She also mentioned some other artists {totally fascinated with the sketchbooks of K at A Place to Dwell and Kim at Art Equals Happy} that are worth a peek and a definite check-out if you are going to be seeing the books on tour. I am. And I can't wait! So many sketchbooks to check out, so little time! How will I ever see them all?? Think I will have to spend the whole day at the Brooklyn Art Library. Fine by me!

So who are your check-out worthy Sketchbook Project Artists?

Sketchbook Project: Catching Up

Haven't blogged about Sketchbook Project in a while so I have tons to show you. Here is a page that I did a while back and I have since then gone back and colored the right page. I do this a lot. As you can see I never finished the page on the left hand side. I do that a lot too. Considering this Sketchbook Project is 'A Day in the Life' of me I thought why not? SO many things go unfinished in my life anyway!

The next few spreads are pages 24 - 29. The dance spread was done while waiting for my daughter to get out of tap class. I illustrated all the tap steps she has learned so far. The others were inspired by The Beatles, as if you couldn't tell. So many of their songs are so relevant to different stages of my life. This stage happened to be a bit of a rough patch and I really felt I needed Help. Thank you Beatles. =)

I can't believe my sketchbook is due January 15th already! Five days to finish up 6 or so spreads. Can I do it? Have you shipped your sketchbook out yet??

Sketchbook Project Featured on Doodler's Anonymous!

My Sketchbook Project has been featured on Doodler's Anonymous! What a lovely way to start the New Year! In case the name of the site still leaves you pondering what the heck DA is, it's a site dedicated to doodles and doodler's of all kinds. Some really lovely drawings and artist's are featured. That's why it's such an honor for me!

They have a lovely little community you can connect with there too. By signing up it enables you to create a profile with an avatar and a little bio. This enables you to 'like' posts and comment on them as well. They are also on Facebook and Twitter if you care to fan them up or follow. They tweet all their new blog posts.

Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and a very happy New Year. I had a wonderful few weeks off, myself. Although it's never really a vacation when you have kids and a million things to do. Still nice to catch up with family and really enjoy each other's company though. Looking forward to posting LOTS of Sketchbook Project pages this week! Deadline is fast approaching and I'm not even done! (Cue Panic Attack)
