Sketchbook Project 2011

A few months back in 2010 I joined up to The Sketchbook Project.  You sign up, they send you a moleskin sketchbook and you had until January 2011 to fill the sketchbook and send it back.  The project is a different kind of art show that is touring America and ending up as a permanent exhibition at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York.  Its a pretty cool oppurtunity and one I wanted to be involved in.

But that was back in August 2010 and January has certainly snuck up on me.  With an imminent house move and a baby due in a few months I needed to get a move on and quick!  Luckily I managed to get it all finished and spread the wooly word of graffiti!

Although drawing and painting is not my strongest creative area, I wanted to have a play and put together all of my graffiti projects in a sort of self made book.

Here are my favourite pages.  I filled the pages with picures of my graffiti as well as brainstorms and sketch ideas.  If you are in America, you can actually view the book when it comes to a city near you.  You can view when and where here.
