Sketchbook Project Mail-by Date Draws Near...

Yep, it's that time of year again, the Sketchbook Project's "you must have your sketchbook postmarked by this date in order for it to be included in our library" date.  It's a few days away, and I've only got a few pages left to fill on my theme this year: Travel With Me.

Some may remember my submission last year. I thumbed through my old sketchbook just the other day (online! Because the Brooklyn Art Library is cool like that and every sketchbook has been digitized and uploaded and browseable) and I though, well, huh.  It's so....monochromatic.  Why oh why did I only draw in pencil?

So, this year, I'm breaking out the watercolours.  I'm getting the pages sopping wet with colour.  And I'm having a whole paintbox full of fun on these pages.  And it is awesome.

(Also, I've already signed up for the 2012 Sketchbook Project Limited Edition - you know, the one where some of your sketchbook will be included in an art book they're creating. No big deal.)
