The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project
I saw this on Michael Nobbs' Twitter stream which sounds pretty cool.

Art House Co-op is organizing The Sketchbook Project 4 (already!?). Participants will get a Moleskine sketchbook (with the entry fee paid), fill it with art and mail it back. Then a gallery will be held at Art House Gallery in December 2009.

Book Publishers With Blogs

Fantagraphics Blog
Here are some blogs of book publishers that I check out regularly. They have book previews, events, giveaways, etc. Great for checking out upcoming books.

If you know of any other publishers that have interesting blogs, share them via comment.

Doodlers Anonymous

Doodlers Anonymous
Here's a highly inspirational blog called Doodlers Anonymous. It's frequently updated with sketches from from doodlers all over the world.

From their About page:

Doodlers Anonymous was founded to celebrate our addiction, and like any other, we're hooked. The need to draw, sketch, and doodle is constant. We doodle on almost anything we can find — pencil in a moleskine, marker on a napkin, ink on a torn receipt, sharpie on concrete. And we do it habitually — while on hold, in a meeting, during class, or while we should be sleeping.

This is a permanent home for spontaneous art. There's a blog, interviews, themed-submissions and a lot of amusing thoughts on paper.
