do it: sketchbook reception

do it

 

I've been super excited for the Sketchbook Project Limited Edition's opening reception. It was my sketchbook's official welcome to the world, and can now be checked out as a library book for viewing at the Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg!

The first book I checked out was my own. I practically know it by heart at this point, but I had trouble letting it go when I completed it... so we had a little reunion.

 It was very cool to see everyone thumbing through the sketchbooks and passing them around to share. It was a proud moment.

I would highly recommend you visit the Art Library... it's a nice escape and a perfect respite on a rainy afternoon. If you go, check out my book! We appreciate the love and attention. ;) If you can't make it to the library, I photographed my sketchbook and made a special home for it on my blog here.

This person's sketchbook was all about secrets, and invited people to write down a secret of their own and share it in the envelope. I love interactive stuff like this, and of course added a secret. A lot of friends' reactions to my sketchbook were surprise that I would share so much of myself in such a public way. I think that artists often put a huge amount of private emotion into their work, so sharing any piece of work is a bit daunting. When you open up your creative work for criticism it's difficult not to take it personally, so I appreciate all of the warm feedback!
