The Sketchbook Project is a Brooklyn-based company that organizes global, collaborative art projects.  AKA The Brooklyn Art Library.  They have world's largest collection of Sketchbooks (35,978) and growing, thanks to The Sketchbook Project. Every year artists around the world have the opportunity to purchase an official sketchbook from the art library and choose a selected theme to base your work on. You have over a year (As of announcement) to fill the sketchbook in your own creative style! After this process you return your sketchbook to the art library via post and the worldwide travelling exhibition will begin shortly after. The Exhibition is completely mobile meaning the art library can transport a trailer of sketchbooks around the US and Canada. They also bring the exhibit to other countries, including the UK. After the Exhibition has ended, all the participating sketchbooks are then added to the collection at the art library Brooklyn.  

My Sketchbook is currently in post on its way to me and I'm extremely excited to be able to be apart of the incredible project. My chosen theme is 'THIS IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS'. I'll be doing Bi-Monthly updates on my sketchbook throughout the whole process. The exhibition will begin travelling in June 2018. With the current locations announced: New York, Atlanta, Chicago and Toronto with more locations being revealed in early spring 2018. If you're interested in entering The Sketchbook Project, you can do so HERE.
