Book Project

If you haven't been inspired in a while, check out Book, a collaborative sketchbook exchange between two artists in Brooklyn and two in Belfast. The book was sent among the participants for thirty-six weeks. An artist would receive the book on Wednesday and have five days to complete a page spread before sending it out the following Monday. The result is a collection of beautiful drawings and paintings. The artists did not communicate during the exchange, but came together after its completion to talk about the inspiration for each page. Excerpts from their conversion were recorded and played at exhibitions in New York and Belfast (and can be heard on the website). A hardcover reproduction of the book can be bought here.
