I was asked by Sue Bleiweiss to contribute to her forthcoming book which will be linked to the popular 2011 Sketchbook Challenge. If you haven’t had a look at the blog the idea is that a theme is set each month and then people share their efforts via Flickr. There is always something new on the blog and it’s usually very entertaining and informative. There is also a monthly set of prizes which can be won via tagging one example of your work for the monthly draw.
The book will have a similar idea with each contributor working on a sketch book to a set theme and then producing a piece of art related to the sketchbook work.
It was quite a tight deadline to work to, but I like that as it gets me focused. The sketchbook and stitched piece was sent off to America, and now Sue has put it all together and the manuscript is on its way to the publishers.
Carol Sloan, Jane Davies, Leslie Tucker Jenison, Lynn Krawczyk, Laura Cater-Woods, Jackie Bowcutt, Jill Berry, Judi Hurwitt, Lyric Kinard, Jamie Fingal, Diana Trout, Kelli Perkins, Jane LaFazio, Kathyanne White, Kathy Sperino, Violette Clark, Carla Sonheim
Susan Brubaker Knapp, Tracie Lyn Huskamp, and Kim Rae Nugent
We have to wait until this time next year for the book to be published.
Don’t worry, I will let you know when it is, as I shall not be able to contain my excitement
