After many long years (about 3.5, actually), the fabled failure of a sketchbook is once again returned to my hands. It was a great feeling, to be reunited with this artifact of my past, when I was but an optimistic and trusting nave. This sketchbook was supposed to be sent around the country(Canada counts too) to acquire sketches and doodles from any willing members of our art community, to contribute to a compilation of sorts.
However, there were...speedbumps, and the book never made it past 3 or 4 entries. But that has not curbed my enthusiasm, as I still have this sketchbook what needs filling, and I'm still determined to take volunteers.
So would anybody be interested in taking on this endeavor? Rules are relatively simple: get the book, draw in the book, send it out to the next person in line. The order will also be organized via geographic location in order to save people money on postage.
Here's the more specific rules quoted from a post what seems like an eternity ago:
Anyways, here's my book's rules or whatever:
- On the Index page, write the next number in sequence, and then your name and/or forum name. You can include where you live if you want, preferably just what state or province.
-Write your number on the top left-hand corner of any page you choose to draw on. Your number is the number you wrote your name next to on the index page. Also, you can go ahead and sign your work at the bottom of the page if you want to.
-Feel free to use the back of any page you draw on, I don't care, just make sure to keep everything in order by artist and number.
-Any medium is fine, keep in mind it it just normal sketchbook paper. Just make sure that you are considerate of another's artwork. So no using thick markers if you're just going to bleed through like 5 pages.
-It's fine if you have a friend that wants to join in on the fun and contribute some sketches/doodles, just have him/her sign in on the index page and they can go right ahead.
-Don't be a dick.
-Go ahead and add a sticker or decal to the front or back cover if you have any that you would like to contribute, preferably anything that says where your from.
Let's try to keep track of where this thing is, exactly, like someone make a post when they send it out and the recipient should make a post when they receive it to make sure it reached it's destination intact.
If anyone is still interested after all that, I guess I can start taking PM's with your addresses. Please refrain from posting any sensitive information in this thread. Also, your information will only be given to the person before you in line so that they may ship it to you.
Here's some scans of the work that's already in it. It's super embarrassing to show how shitty my drawing was, but now I can show how much I've improved before sending it out again!
