The SketchBook Challenge 1/1/11

Doddle, paint, draw, scribble, collage - Experiment! Have Fun!

Been getting questions about this on-line activity so here’s more information:

This is NOT my challenge.  A group of 16 artist have gotten together and beginning Jan 1st  a new theme will be announced each month.  Throughout the month the artists will be showing images from their sketchbooks and talking about the intention and inspiration behind them.

Here’s a cut ‘n paste from The sketchbook Challenge Blog: 

Have fun, you never know it could sell for millions (after you're dead)


“Along the way we’ll be sharing tips, techniques and tutorials.  We hope that by giving you a peek inside our sketchbooks and showing you how different they all are that we’ll inspire you to start keeping a sketchbook of your own.

Thanks to the generosity of some terrific sponsors we’ll be doing some givewaways and special shopping offers too! “

  1. Paint smeared on paper with magazine picture


    You can even sketch like Picasso!

If you want to experiment with your own sketch book send me  photos and I’ll share them (with or without your name) so that 

Use small sketchbooks

others can be inspired to try it too!

I think this is a fun opportunity to tweak your own CREATIVITYTOTHEMAX whether you periodically just take a look at the artists pages or try it out for yourself.

You don’t have to share/show your pictures, you don’t have to be an artist, you don’t have to have any artistic experience!  Just bring your curiosity to see the creative PROCESS in action.


Cut up paperbags and whitewash the pages with paint or gesso. That's FREE.


I’ll periodically post my SketchBook sketches so you can see it’s NOT about making beautiful pictures.  It’s about having fun, experimenting, lowering your blood pressure, reducing your stress and stretching yourself to explore your world!
