The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition

“The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition Vol. 1 is a collaborative series of art books created by 5,000 artists from around the world.

The Sketchbook Project is an opportunity to express yourself to a global audience.

The Brooklyn Art Library archives your sketchbook and exhibits it to the public. Our storefront reading room hosts the Limited Edition exhibition and makes your sketchbook available to patrons from all over the world — right in the heart of Brooklyn.

Friends, family and other patrons can find your work almost instantly — and you’ll receive email or text message notifications each time your book is viewed.

Every contributor to the Sketchbook Project Limited Edition Vol. 1 will be included in a series of art books documenting the project. Together, the series will provide insight into the imagination and process of each artist participating in the project. Bound by the Brooklyn Art Library Press and hand-finished in our Brooklyn workshop, the book series will be published in the fall of 2012.”


These are the pages of my sketchbook. The theme (open to interpretation) was “How to spell and other things to learn.”

I loved this project. I would always be brainstorming words and setups for the next page. I choose not to limit myself to a single medium and that let me explore the wide range of approaches.

I will just as quickly sign up for the 2013 Sketchbook Project.

Maybe I’m still here.

I’m not sure. Perhaps. You never know.

A Fresh Start

Sometimes a fresh start is all you need.

You could chop off all your locks 1920’s style.

Or use 1 million clips to pin up your hair because of a director request for me to figure out how to pin long hair to short.


And who needs a haircut when there’s a fresh layer of rain covering the ground?


For 2 years I carried this notebook with me everywhere I went.
















It was my ever running to-do list. To-dos that had to happen, that I dreamed would happen, and that I could do if I ever wanted to. There were plenty of doodles and the pages are dog eared and wrinkled.

It was very loved.

Apples to Apples

First off:

Do you like my temporary tattoo?



Who: Me!

What: A bracelet made of cards.

When: I made and finished this the day finals were over.



  • 2 Cards
  • Jump Rings
  • 2 Clasps
  • 2 pairs of needle nose pliers
  • A crocodile
  • Scissors



This is what a crocodile looks like. Use it to punch four holes in each card slice.


Instead of jump rings, I took apart a charm bracelet and used the chain bits.


Attach the jump rings through the holes until it reaches around your arm. Then attach the clasps.


And: It was a really fun craft to get my creative mojo back.
