Sketchbook Finished!!!: 1703 Miles and Back

I entitled this sketchbook "Road Trip" and used the theme provided for the tour, 1703 Miles and Back. Since the tour's theme was travel, I decided to use this sketchbook as somewhat of a travelogue as I made my way cross-country from Arizona to Tennessee, stopping to see various family members along the way. Although the rough distance from my starting point to my resting place in Tennessee is pretty close to the 1703 miles of the tour, by routing through Houston I actually hit the 1703 mile mark before I reached my brother's house in White House TN. I marked the 1703 mile page and continued on. The book ran out of pages before I ran out of adventures, though, and long before I started heading back home again. Maybe my next sketchbook will complete the road trip. Or not! Who knows? :-) Anywho, here are scans of the pages of this sketchbook. It will eventually be digitized at the Brooklyn Art Library and make its way cross-country to some places I've been before as well as some I haven't. I'll try to track its journey, and that of my first sketchbook, here.

"How To Achieve Your Goals Through Procrastination" Sketchbook Tour Project Finished!!!!

I finally put the finishing touches on my "How To" sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project and plan to mail it to its new home at Brooklyn Art Library tomorrow. Here are my final scans, the only copy I will have here at home for myself until the Library digitizes the pages for all to see at http://www.sketchbookproject.com/users/pjlawrence (It will be a while before that happens, as they seem to wait until everyone's book is in before setting up the digital copies at the site). The "How To" tour will be visiting Baltimore, Richmond, Knoxville, and NASHVILLE! during the month of August 2013, and then my book will be permanently housed in the Library in Brooklyn. In the meantime, here's a sneak peak for all my friends!
