I signed up recently for The Sketchbook Project. I've never participated before, but I figured I could use the push to try some new things or just improve what I normally do. Yesterday, my sketchbook arrived.
Now I have to figure out what I want to do with it. Should I re-bind it? I'm a total newbie at that. I could just start with new paper of the right size and go from there - binding it at the end. Or I could, of course, leave it as is aside from decorating the cover.
What to do depends on what media I intend to use inside. The sketchbook is similar to a Moleskine cahier but the paper is white and thicker. It would be fine with colored pencils, and probably fine with markers on only one side. How many pages am I going to end up doing between now and January, anyway?
It's a little overwhelming, and I feel like I need some sort of plan, but at the moment I don't have one. Have you participated in the Sketchbook Project in the past? What did you do with your sketchbook?
