Last year I participated in the Art House Coop's Sketchbook Project.
My theme was "Inside/Outside".
I kind of went crazy researching the history of underwear.
My book was full of little cutouts that, when the outside garment was lifted, showed the underwear of the times on the next page. I had a great time doing this and was proud and happy when I shipped my Sketchbook off. These books on tour, there are over 10,000 of them to choose from, are viewed by thousands of people. WELLL....I waited and waited to be notified that ANYBODY had viewed my book (we were to receive an email notification when our books were viewed). As of today ONE person has picked up my sketchbook and paged through it. WAAA, I felt swindled. My studio mate rae dunn (her book has been viewed twice) and I hatched a plan to go to the San Francisco Sketchbook Tour stop and steal our books back. But today I received notification that my book had been digitized and can be viewed online.
Perhaps you'd like to view it (please)? Click here if you do (keep in mind that the little clothes drawings were cut to lift up and reveal the undies underneath):
