Art Happens :: The Sketchbook Project

Calling all artists! There is a really cool art project going on right now called the Sketchbook Project, wherein thousands of artists from around the globe will fill Moleskine Cahier sketchbooks with their unique works. Each artist must select a theme from a predetermined list, which includes: storybook, in flight, nightmare, happy thoughts and face in the crowd. The artists then have until January 15th, 2011 to complete and submit their work.
After receiving all the completed sketchbooks, the collection will embark on a six-city tour before landing at The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will remain part of the permanent collection. Each sketchbook will feature a barcode, enabling the artist to track how many times their book is pulled from the shelf (pretty cool, huh?).
The cost to participate in the project is $25, which includes a 5.5" x 8.5" Moleskine Cahier sketchbook. Sign up before October 31st to participate! Below are a couple of examples from past sketchbooks.
