the Sketchbook Project | Lines, squares and cross stitch patterns

Page form iHanna's Sketchbook project book B/W + Hello

I got a sketchbook with the theme grids and lines in the mail last year for The Brooklyn Art Library and their huge sketchbook exhibition. This exhibition is now on tour in the US, and if you have the time I think you should go see it. I would spend a few hours (or days) there if I had the chance!

Not for from the tree

I did scan all the spreads in my sketchbook for reference before I sent the sketchbook off to the US. Today I’ve been looking through the photos and thought I’d share. These are a few of the pages from The Sketchbook Project sketchbook that I haven’t shared with you yet. Enjoy!

    Oh yes!!! The Sketchbook Tour.
    What a wonderful idea, right?! Love this project.
    My theme was “Nighttime Stories” I had a blast!
    Also, receiving a text message every time someone is viewing your sketchbook, is awesome!!! :]

    I’m so impressed by your “addiction” to books of all kinds. Seems nothing can stop you from explore new things. And the very best part is you sharing with all of us. Thank you for your generosity, I really appreciate it.

    i am so impressed with what you did in your sketchbook with, what i consider, a very challenging theme! i wish i could go see it but there are no exhibits near my home.

    I have a bit of an obsession with grids and lines myself, so I absolutely love these pages! I love how simple and minimalist they seem. Sometimes my own journal pages just seem so busy (not that busy is a bad thing), but it’s nice to keep things simple sometimes as well. Your pages are always inspiring – now I feel like creating some grids-and-lines pages myself! Thank you very much, Hanna!

    Your sketchbook is amazing! It kind of makes me regret never finishing mine!

    Your sketchbook looks fabulous! The lines give so many opportunities – you have done great work interpreting the shapes and the moves of the lines.

    Hanna, isn’t it great to just look through every page and see what your friends do? I liked doing this. I was going to do the fiction one, where we write and illustrate it? But I just can’t spend the money or get it done on time, so I am thinking of using one of my own moleskines and make my own sketchbook with words and pictures, and it will be like a one of a kind zine!
    Thanks for sharing these photos. I don’t think I can get to the tour so it’s great to see them. I will check your flickr page, too.
    My comments are long today. HA!
