The Sketchbook Project

A reminder to not judge a book by its cover, something Steven Peterman knows all too well as one of the creators of the Sketchbook Project.

People are tasked to take a blank sketch book and turn it into their own. Some people draw, some paint, some even sew their pages, and the covers are pretty unique as well.

Steven started the sketch book project with his college friend, Shane Zucker, in Atlanta in 2006. That year 500 people participated. Last year that number soared to 20-thousand. They house many at their Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg. A library card gives you access to the books and many are on line as well.

Some of the books travel for shows across the world. After all, folks from 95 countries participated last year.
