Now, I finally have the hang of uploading video to YouTube, you can have a sneaky peak into a little sketchbook that took a little tour around the world via The Sketchbook Project. I filmed my sketchbook from The Sketchbook Project in 2012 when painting its cover. You can see all the pages in the video too. I came a cross the file this week and thought “It is time to upload this!”
I got to hold it and look through my little sketchbook one more time late last year when the library traveled to Melbourne Australia. I know it is sentimental of me but there is something adoptive about a sketchbook and I NEVER part with them or tear pages from them. This was a big deal for me. A single piece of art (no problem) but a set like this was a reluctant gift. The motivation was the fact I could appreciate the thrill of a traveling exhibition like this. I know I like to pour over other people’s sketch journals.
It now resides in the Brooklyn library’s permanent collection.
A little visitors tip: When visiting the mobile library, there is a lot of queuing involved. I was a little frustrated so share the sketchbooks with some others on the table. If you borrow and share you’ll see much more in the time you have. If you are a bit selective, I would suggest you look up who’s sketchbooks you want to view prior.
