Here I am, a chapter can now be closed. I finished my sketchbook for the Art House co-op Sketchbook Project 2011, I’ll send it back today to New York City. And I am on time !
If you are wondering “what the hell is she talking about”, you can read my first blogpost right here.
And for the video I made while creating the sketchbook cover, it’s just there.
During two weeks, I was sleeping, eating, thinking every free minute of the day about the Sketchbook. I want to apologize to my twitter friends for having filled my twitter feed with so much sketchbook related stuff. I am over the moon to be done, to send it on time. I am unfortunately not one of those that work so well under the pressure of a deadline coming to an end.
As promised, here is a little final video:
I can’t wait to go to the exhibit stop in Seattle, see what the others have done.
Did you know that we are nearly 29,000 participants, from 94 different countries around the World ? I can’t even imagine how it is to organize all of this.
It was a rich experience for me, but I’m not sure I’ll do it again (but I learned to never say “never” !).
Here are two different spreads (the last spread of the sketchbook will have her own blogpost soon). Don’t hesitate to click to enlarge:
I am a perfectionnist and for some points I am kind of ashamed to send it back as it is. But I keep telling myself “it’s a sketchbook, just a sketchbook.“. I put my heart and soul in these few pages. I wish I’d have done more (more pages, more elaborate), but I didn’t and I have now to accept it. I hope people will enjoy it that way… It seems SO different from what I saw on the website, I am a little scared.
Now, my mind is on all the other projects I want to accomplish 😉
Beautiful! I can’t wait to see your book this summer! I can’t believe the number of participants…it is going to be super cool to see the exhibit!
Congrats on finishing Nolwenn!! I am still not finished and quite frankly, am so swamped with deadlines at work that it’s going to have get turned in with a lot of messy work that I won’t be happy with at all, but I’ll get over it. I’m just pushing to get done by Thursday. Congrats again 🙂
Wow, Nolwenn, that is fantastic!! Your pages, in addition to being absolutely beautiful, have such meaning to them in the words that you chose. Thank you for sharing a video. I’m so happy I’ll get to see your book this summer. Well done!

Ooh, your sketchbook is seriously awesome! Wish I was in the US and could go see it in person!!
Oh I loved that video. I saw so many powerful and interesting pages. The picture of Baudelaire was really cool and all your wonderful characters. I enjoyed peeking in to your world.
Wow…i love the sketchbook and the haunting faces of your girls. Your tree page is pretty powerful too!
Thanks for sharing.
Lovely sketchbook – like the idea of making a video. enjoy the exhibition. I am sure it would be great to go see them in person.
