Sketchbook Project 2011 was in Chicago last weekend. For 4 glorious day 10,000 books were on exhibit in Hyde Park Art Center. Of course, I spent a lot of time there: to get my hands on my friends’ books and see them in person, to see new sketchbooks, and to reunite with my own while it was back in town.
I checked out my book and discovered that it needed some minor repairs, a couple of things got unglued. The next day I brought glue, tape and scissors and made the repairs right then and there to much delight of artists and visitors nearby.
Some sketchbooks I saw:
Carol King‘s book along with my favorite portrait from my own book
I was delighted David could come and see my work as well as a number of other books.
I saw many more books, but it was impossible to document all that I saw as the crowd was so dense.
All in all it was a success!
