10,000 sketchbooks from 94 countries will tour North America, then become part of the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York. I found the collective nature of this project inspiring.
My sketchbook title was in 5 minutes, the sketchbook included recent drawings from October 2010 to January 2011, the drawings focused on a desire to describe the imediacy of place, many of the drawings were created in mid winter so dealt with a diminishing light source, others were created in the dark, under street lamps or in gloomy corners.
