Last year was the first year I participated in the Sketchbook Project, the project out of Brooklyn whereby people from all over the world buy a small sketchbook, fill it,
choose to have it imaged or not, and it sits in the museum and/or travels the country!
Last year the options were Hope OR Fear, and given what is going on in the USA
I changed the rules, as I am often want to do, and went with Hope AND Fear.
I wrote everything honestly in journal style, then redacted all that
might be used against me in a totalitarian government.
Imagine my surprise when I found out they chose to feature me in
the small printed book about the project! Yay! (Sold out!)
This year I participated in the Sketchbook Project again, but also, am participating in the Canvas Project. My word is BEDLAM! Anyone else participating?

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
Thanks! I wish they’d use decent paper — lordy it is not much better than copy paper!
I love the idea behind your sketchbook and its execution.

Love the redacted journal! And congrats on being included in the booklet! Well deserved! L x
Born of necessity. Had to write my truth but didn’t want my truth out in our world now so THAT spoke volumes to me about where we are in this country today.
The Sketchbook Project and now the canvas Project, sound great. Congrats on participating. Thanks for sharing about it!
