I wouldn’t consider myself much of a “group project” kind of gal. I’ve got bad flashbacks of school projects gone awry. Typically what happened is that my type A personality would take over because I didn’t want to have my name on something that I didn’t have full control over and of course no one was going to be able to do things the way I would. Obnoxious, I know.
But I did, however, find a group project that I actually chose to join. The Sketchbook Project is a unique collaboration of individual sketchbooks that will tour the country. The catch? Anyone can join and submit their book. The day that Shannon posted about it, I immediately signed up and sent off for my own book. Then a few days later she had the brilliant idea to collaborate with other bloggers and have us each create a page or two in one book. I am so excited about both. I received my book last week and have been staring at the blank pages for inspiration. I love the accessibility of this project. It’s for everyone from the professional to the amateur. I hope I get to make it to Austin next spring to see it in person.
