Something different Sunday - The Sketchbook Project 2011

With six pages completed this week and I am rapidly approaching the middle stitched binding of the moleskine.

There has been a request on twitter from Art House Co-op (who run The Sketchbook Project 2011) for people to link to information on how they rebound their sketchbooks.  The paper in the moleskine sketchbook is incredibly thin so I can understand why certain artists would rebind the book with paper they were more used to working on.  I decided not to rebind but have had to perform all manner of paper tricks to keep the pages legible and clear.

I will do an entry later in the week with all the materials I use along with tips on how to live in harmony with your moleskine.

At the outset of this project I was concerned that I would have enough 'nighttime stories' to fill the book. With the girl just about to embark on her search as I prepare the hit the halfway mark I'm worried now that there won't be enough room for all her travels!

May be I will just have to do a sequel.


  1. Just discovered your blog - and your very timely post. I was struggling with motivated to write and then discovered National Novel Writing Month - so now I'm all amped to spend the 30 days and 30 nights of November writing a manuscript.

    Love you blog, would be great if you stopped by mine sometime.

  2. Ah, it's the beauty of the 'deadline'. That is a good one Andrea...I will have to make up my own deadline (these are often not the best as it is too easy to make up a new deadline when the original one isn't met) or search out a new exhibition opportunity. Off to check out your blog! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment, you made my day.
