Most of you know that, since January 2011, I have been a contributing artist in The Sketchbook Challenge. The project was developed by Sue Bleiweiss, and the idea was to inspire artists to work in their sketchbooks, and to share their work with others through an online photo site. Major retailers of art supplies have donated some amazing prizes for those who participated.
Every month one of the contributing artists announces a new theme and the blog is used to provide a variety of art pieces and tutorials to inspire the participants.
Sue approached a number of artists, including myself, to contribute artwork for her newest book, "The Sketchbook Challenge". I was thrilled to create a number of pieces, one of which is on the cover (on the lower right portion, it has schnauzer stamps on the right edge).
Although the book will not ship until next summer it is available for pre-order it on Amazon.com.
