On Tour.

While catching up on some of my own favorite design blogs, I stumbled across a link on Design*Sponge that made me gasp. Out loud.

What. I'm obsessed with this. The tag is "It's like a concert tour but with sketchbooks...and I am a sucker for a good concert...oh wait...AND for a sketchbook. Feeling validated after starting my own "Sketchbook Diaries" project, I looked into and it is an incredible idea. Quite frankly I'm jealous that I didn't come up with it myself...but I digress...

You order the sketchbook from them...I've actually used these before so I can vouch for the quality of paper...because let's face it, it's all about the paper with these things people. Yes. I have the OCD. I own it. You should too. Good paper is good paper...oh right...the have until January to fill your book however you want to, with an underlying theme you choose online and then all the sketchbooks from across the nation go on tour! They get displayed in various libraries and galleries and end the tour in The Brooklyn Art Library, where they get barcoded and are open to the public for viewing and you can track it like a library book! How invigorating!

Call me a sucker, but I think I'm in. Care to join?
