The Sketchbook Project

Art House Co-op is doing this great thing called The Sketchbook Project. Basically they send you a sketchbook, you put some art in it, send it back to them, then it goes on tour to galleries across America. Read more about it here:

From there, the sketchbook flows in the same stream of consciousness way that dreams do: going from one thing to the next with loose connections, sometimes being interrupted by outside stimulus as you are awakened and fall back to sleep. And it all loops back to waking up again, and that first thought in the morning.
