If you haven't heard of the Sketchbook Project this is a neat idea. It may be for only the USA, not sure, but for the price of a sketchbook and registration you can be a part of this national project. You just list the area your sketchbook fits under like travel or memoirs or other..the start they send you a sketchbook and you start sketching. It becomes a part of a national archive others get to see and share. You literally can see and check out other peoples sketchbook and write and tell them if you like it. I think it is a great idea. So lets all get drawing!!!!!
