Perhaps you remember The Sketchbook Project from the first page of this blog (oh COME ON PEOPLE... you haven't gone back as far as the first page?). Here is a reminder:
Basically, you sign up, the fine people at Art House Co-Op send you a 5x8 moleskine notebook, you fill it (or, attempt to), you send it back, and it tours the United States of America, ending up in the Brooklyn Art Library. The books must be post-marked no later than January 15th for their trip back to the States, and I regret to say that I left mine till the last minute and am now frantically trying to fill it up with quickie collages. Smitty says I'll probably go back to these and add to them, but I highly doubt that. It's probably a good thing that I'm doing it quickly, and anyway it's a SKETCHBOOK, remember? A SKETCHBOOK. Not the goddamn Sistine Chapel.
ADDENDUM: I should have mentioned that when you sign up for The Sketchbook Project, you have to choose a theme from a list they've provided. There weren't that many left by the time I chose, and for better or worse I chose "It's Raining Cats and Dogs". Hence the heavy cat & dog content you see here.
