Skecthbook Project, Vol. 3

Check out the Sketchbook Project, Volume 3, over at Art House. Art House aims to build art projects and communities. For this project, they send you a small sketchbook, which you fill and send back to them. They then take the sketchbooks on a 6 city gallery/museum tour. The theme is "Everyone we know".
It costs $18 to participate, which isn't too bad. And if you send a self addressed stamped envelope, they'll send you back your sketchbook.
Their previous skecthbook projects got press in magazines like Good, Juxtapose, and Readymade.
The deadline to send in your completed sketchbook is Feb. 15 2009, so if you sign up now, you'll have plenty of time!
Check out some of their other projects here.

Design Species

Here is a link to Design Species which I mentioned to some of you: upcycled, convertible clothing plus many other cool objects/projects. I got to know Daniela and David when I was in Eindhoven for Dutch Design Week. I bought a great tyvek purse from Design Species which I will put in one of our display cabinets. I promise I will post images from DDW and start talking about much of what we learned abotu while there......last week was getting back on track and this week is flying by.

Check out Design Species. Pass the word.
