How to participate to sketchbook 3

I am happy to report that I have sent sketchbook number 3 to Sonja in Bosnia and that sketchbook number 2 is back! Only one stuck in France now,but i shall call the naughty girl who is keeping it to gently tell her off tonite!
Sketchbook number 3 is a printed book,a well known children's story: Charlie and the chocolate factory by Roald Dhal  and it already contains a few illustrations by the great Quentin Blakes. I thought it would be interesting to draw on the printed pages , either by illustrating the actual story or by totally ignoring it and let your imagination take you wherever it goes.
-Draw on one or 2, 3 pages, up to you and your inspiration
-follow the story. or dont!
-draw on the Quentin Blake illustrations or around them if you have thought of an interesting way of doing that.
-have fun
- Leave pages between your illustrations and the next artist's illustrations: we do not need to draw on ALL the printed pages of the book, obviously. Let the book 'breathe'.

Sketchbook number 3 then ...

The 2 sketchbooks are still stuck in their respective parts of the world (not lost thank god), which is so frustrating for all al us who cant wait to see new pages added to our precious books. I have sent countless kind messages and checked my letterbox every morning...for 2 months. So lets start a third sketchbook project, this time a vintage children's book. Pure line drawings over the typed words are what i would love to achieve, a bit like soletz 's work. Sonja will be the first one to receive it in Eastern europe. So guys this time, 2 or 3 weeks maximum please!
