The Sketchbook Challenge

Well, I mailed off my sketchbook to Brooklyn for their Sketchbook Project. Glad it is on its way!

Now, I am on to something new -- the Sketchbook Challenge. It is SO MUCH FUN!!! Each month they post a topic (this month's is HIGHLY PRIZED) and you sketch one or more pieces that you can either post on your blog or in the Flickr Group collection. It was fun considering the topic and deciding what to draw/paint. I've only done one sketch so far and am not sure whether I'll submit more or not for this month. But, it's fun to think about!!

I like that it is not a weekly commitment and that there is plenty of time to complete the task. I also like getting back into a regular routine of using the sketchbook. When I signed on, I didn't anticipate the pleasure I'd get looking at all the variety of styles of the submissions of other participants. I think the whole challenge is a great idea!
