Here's my sketchbook and well-loved watercolors, ready to be used. It took a week to get going, but I've done a few pages so far. At this rate, it's going to take FOREVER to finish, but I have vacation coming up!
Me with my empty book, ready to go!

I went out to get the mail this afternoon and my sketchbook had arrived! I came back inside and found Frederica in my seat. She wasn't nearly as thrilled as I was to have the sketchbook.
These are the contents of the envelope: the moleskine cahier sketchbook, a sheet listing the rules & instructions and an official Brooklyn Art Library card. Once my sketchbook is done, it will become the property of the Brooklyn Art Library... so I guess the library card gives me visitation rights to my creation.
The rules & instructions.
My official library card. Check it out: "2011 Participating Artist" - that's me!!
My official website for the project is http://arthousecoop.com/users/hcrockett. I only have a little bit of information on there at the moment, but I'll be uploading photos of my artwork to the web site.
I've decided to participate in the Art House Co-Op's 2011 Sketchbook Project and am reviving this blog to track my progress. I ordered my sketchbook last week and it shipped yesterday, so I expect to start drawing next week.
I chose the "If you lived here..." theme, which will explore my world in a similar way that I was planning to with this blog. We'll see how it goes!
