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 😉
