Sketchbook Sunday

I really wouldn't have known much about the Sketchbook Project if I weren't one of Jill Eudaly's faithful followers. Thanks to her detailed byline with accompanying photos of her book, I knew just what to look for when the mobile library showed up in Toronto recently. I haven't been up to much lately, but I was determined to get down to the Distillery to get to an art gallery and see a show before it closed.  Turns out the entire gallery was closed for a private function by the time I got there, but all was not lost. Just a few feet away, I recognized the well marked trailer from Jill's blog ..... The Sketchbook Project ....had travelled all the way across several states and provinces, and landed right in front of me. I immediately got my library card activated, and set out to see Jill's book in the flesh - which I did! I really could have spent hours and hours at the picnic tables perusing the plethora of sketchbooks, but time was not on my side - though I have included a few i-phone shots just to give you a little taste. I thought of that after I put Jill's book back, and they only allow one loan at a time ..... rules already!
I was so overcome with enthusiasm that I purchased my own booklet so I can participate in the next round. The program has been running for seven years, and is permanently archived at the Brooklyn Art Library.
