Yesterday I flicked through a travel magazine with a feature of ‘cool things to do in New York’.
One of them was to visit the Brooklyn Art Library and browse through the amazing arty sketchbooks that are permanently archived there.
And it reminded me of my own Sketchbook Project that I was part of in 2013 (time flies doesn’t it?) The title of my sketchbook is ‘Free Entry – Admits One’ – available to view in physical and digital sketchbook form.
It turns out I’m a random archivist* of seemingly unimportant ephemera.
Now that we live in an online age, it’s amazing to be able to share creative things with people all over the world, as well as having a ‘real’ physical archive that I plan to one day visit myself. I still get emails when someone ‘checks out’ my physical sketchbook from the library. So cool!
The funniest thing is reading my own profile and what I had written about myself back then.
I am a firework…
I would like to take part in another project like this, and I just love how creativity takes so many forms and can encompass so much in so little.
Find other participants’ books in the digital library.
* ‘random archivist’ = no formal training required. Just keep the things that mean something to YOU.
