Sketchbook Project: Round Up

I enjoyed working on the 2011 Sketchbook Project so much that I signed up for 2012 as soon as it was available. I had been jotting down advice note for a few months and interpreted the theme 'Ask Me How I Can Help' as an advice journal from my current self to my younger self. As with most of my work, the spreads flowed it fits and spurts. Some ideas and images coming quickly and easily while I laboured over others. I notice that in this sketchbook, and in most of my other work, I tend to focus on the humorous end of things and skip the heavier topics. Heavier topics aren't something I usually enjoy tackling in my art, but I'd like to scratch the surface a little this year.

The front cover redux

I'm proud of my final sketchbook and I can see how my ideas and techniques have evolved in the past year. I'm already well into my Limited Edition Sketchbook Project, but that is another post for another day. For now, I'll leave you with a picture of the front cover after I added some texture to the hair, as well as a link to all the spreads on my Flickr. I've also uploaded the images to the Arthouse site. If you're a member, please follow me and I'll happily do the same.


  1. Thank you, Becky!

  3. Way to go Jeannine! I've been enjoying watching your progress and am impressed to see you finished the project with a good week to spare! Awesome job. My sketchbook is coming along, slow and steady - but will be ready in time I think to send it off. What theme did you choose for the limited edition project? I picked "pictures and descriptions" but haven't started on it yet obviously.

  4. Thanks! I chose Distance and Time for the LE sketchbook. When I did Valeria's traveling journal I liked the idea of incorporating my thoughts and feelings surrounding my husband traveling for work, so I'm applying that to the LE book! I have about five spreads "done". I put that in quotes because I keep adding a little bit to them as I do other spreads. I'm going to work on it more this week and see if I can post some pictures.

  5. This looks really special-& I adore your theme! Really looking forward to checking out the rest of the art.
