The Sketchbook Project

"It's like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks."

I am excited to be participating in the Sketchbook Project. This event is being executed by the Art House Co-op. The project will tour the United States beginning in February and will feature a collection of sketchbooks filled with work by various people from all over the place. The theme of the project is "everyone we know."

Each participant receives a small moleskine sketchbook and will fill it with his or her interpretation of the theme, however exact or vague it may be. I have started working on mine and am excited to see how it will turn out.

If you are in the Boston area, be sure to check out the Sketchbook Project at Laconia Gallery in the South End on March 6, 2009. For a list of additional tour dates and more information, check out



This is the figure of Mary from a Nativity scene I saw today. I like how she is not wearing her traditional blue, and I like the lace detail.

Happy Holidays

Here's hoping that you all have a very safe and happy holiday.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year!
