Sketchbook Project

Years ago I found my way through cyberspace to the Art House Co-op. They had an inspiring project-Your life in snapshots. For $20 they sent you a disposable camera to take pictures of your life. I never sent mine back but the project was a creative kick for me.

Self-Portrait-Shadow Side


So now inspired by their Sketchbook Project 2012 I have decided to modify the idea for another personal creative jumpstart. This year the sketchbook project lets you choose from 38 themes or have a theme randomly chosen for you. I plan to do a sketch for each of the themes and post them on my site in a random order (read here-As inspiration on a theme strikes).


  • I remember you
  • The last of the people I know
  • In fifty years
  • Ask me how I can help
  • The first ever…
  • Hope
  • In 10 minutes
  • Along the line
  • Grey side of life
  • Fill me with stories
  • Things found under car seats
  • Untitled
  • Travel with me
  • Forever in a nutshell
  • Disasters
  • This is a sketchbook
  • The worst story ever told
  • Fears and tears
  • The companion book
  • Transatlantic
  • It’s summer where you are
  • It’s winter where you are
  • Nothing new
  • Time Traveler
  • Opposite day
  • Uncharted waters
  • Life underground
  • Monochromatic
  • Long trips and short phone calls
  • Encyclopedia of
  • Sandwich
  • Prehistoric
  • Writing on the wall
  • A path through the trees
  • Stitches and folds
  • Heroes and villains
  • Treehouse
  • Forks and Spoons

I think I will count my post the Man in the Moon  as the first one, I remember you, at least for now. I know cheating already…tisk tisk!

This is where your help is needed. I want suggestions of themes for the random choice category. So if you have any ideas please let me know.

P.S. I plan to make a $25 donation to the project even though I am not directly participating as thank you for their contribution of inspiration.
