When you sign up for the sketchbook project, you pick a theme, fill in a notebook that they send you, and submit it to become part of their permanent collection and digital archive. The library then tours the country (its headquarters is in Williamsburg) and you get notified every time someone views your sketchbook. I wished I could just pick up any of the books at will instead of using a library system, because I love seeing people’s sketchbooks (it’s like a little peek inside their brains). I kinda want to submit one even though it sounds a bit intimidating.
Vanishing Point, Williamsburg Bridge
It is about 7 miles from my house in Brooklyn to the Lower East Side and back, but a mere mass transit outage couldn’t keep me away. Note: Don’t attempt walking this in pretty shoes, you’ll be sorry.
