Well, Clearprint announced a Clearprint Cross Country collaborative art project. Artists who sign up are sent a clearprint sketchbook to create an art work on one page and return to them. In addition, they are sent a second book to keep for themselves. I could not pass up this opportunity. It seemed a much more do-able project for me to participate in. I've done the sketchbook project twice. The first time, I rushed through it to meet the deadline and the second time, I completely forgot about the project.
I really love the Clearprint Vellum books. I like how rapidograph ink looks on it. Also, I love how you can play with the front and back to create depth.
My book arrived on Tuesday. I'm the first person to draw in the book. I feel a little pressure being the first one, but I feel inspired. I finished the page today and will mail it out tomorrow.

|I took one of the daily drawings I did last year for my page contribution. This is the front of the page.|
|This is what the back looks like.|
