Sketch booking, naturally.

I have been invited to take part in a sketchbook exchange project, initiated by Shevaun Doherty, a botanical artist living in Dublin, and January was the great kick-off...

Fifteen of us thought it sounded like a great idea - we have the same type of sketch book, do a spread or two in a month, and post it on to the next person. Eventually our original book will come back, with contributions from everyone in the group. In fact, the books have an interesting journey in store, as they will be going round Ireland, over to Wales, through England an on to America and back again. (hmm, perhaps we'll have to consider hand-delivering to some of the far-away places..?!)

It all sounds perfectly reasonable. Until the book arrives, in it's blankness, and sits looking accusingly at you with a frown and a raised eyebrow..

I use sketch books all the time, but this is very different. If you'd like to see how everyone has started, here is the link
