Sketchbook 2012

Saturday, September 17, 2011

My 2012 Sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project just came in!
My subject:   Hope  
Yes, yes, I chose my own name out of the possible pre-set 
themes lineup.  I mean seriously.  If your name were Hope, wouldn't

Ok probably not--but we treat the themes as jumping off points, not
real rules per se.

On the back is my personal scancode, or UPC, that will be scanned
every time someone checks  my book out of the archive.
So, every time someone looks at my particular book, for as long as it is
in the permanent collection, I will know it!

It's a fairly small book, moleskine-size, and the pages are quite thin.
I think most people are planning on gessoing the pages, or deconstructiong
the book all together, and recreating it out of stronger stuff.
I still haven't decided what I will be doing, it's due the end of January 2012 I believe.
I have no illusions about whether or not my book will be special or groundreaking
or change the lives of those who read it or something.....but I hope one day
someone picks it up and smiles, or laughs, or grimaces, or whatever.

Y'hear that Muse?  January.
Here we go.
