Here are a few pictures of the cover I made for the NIGHT AND DAY sketchbook which is now in London with Lupe. I realised today after looking at a few moleskine blogs that a cool idea with our drawings is to try and make pages from different illustrators merge together or interact. It might be obvious anyway but it would be pretty nice if , on top of adhering to the theme, there was a kind of nice flow between different entries, whether it be in the colors or the themes or the shapes.
I  am thinking of starting another sketchbook with the theme A FOREST FAIRYTALE because i am getting worried that the NIGHT AND DAY book has got too many of you lovely people signed up to it! its a small scale sketchbook and its going to be pretty full once all the London people have done their 4 pages each.
So lets start sketchbook number 2 ! (It might just be that I am the most impatient person in the world.)
On a completely different level, I am trying to find a way to link our sketchbooks to supporting a charity: how about a project called ''anyone can draw'' where artists and anybody willing in Liverpool would fill one page in a traveling accordion sketchbook and each participant would pay 1 or 2 pounds or more if they wanted onto a Paypal account. The money would go to a charity of our choice and generate publicity and the sketchbook could be seen in an exhibition when finished. Willing artists could be found thanks to fliers in places like the Bluecoat gallery and Art colleges ect... sounds like a good project to get my teeth into soon!
Now look at this calendar an inspired person made with each page drawn by a different artist, with an OWL theme, i love this idea too and have already downloaded mine x
