The Sketchbook Project

so i've been working on a sketchbook for the last couple of months, but this one is a little different. for one thing, it doesn't have any jewelry sketches in it. i've been participating in the The Sketchbook Project for the Brooklyn Art Library. The Sketchbook Project is a permanent collection of sketchbooks by artists from all over the world. at the end of april, the entire collection will be going on tour! i'll post the wheres and whens later. for now, the exciting news is, i'm finished! and with a week to spare, since the postmark date has to be before january 31st. the art library will also store the sketchbooks digitally, a link i'll share when i get it, but for now....
the cover and first couple of pages!
my drawing style tends to be a bit cartoon-y and i love colored pencils, so i had a lot of fun with this. the theme i chose was 'travel with me' and took inspiration from photos of places i have visited in my life. enjoy and i'll post a few more tomorrow!

Way to go! Do I get to see the final pages before you ship it off? Inquiring minds want to know! ;-)
