I thought I'd put this out there since it's rolling around in my brain currently. In fact, I've been wondering about this for a while now. Anyhow, there are quite a few good books out there compiling and showcasing street art sketches and drawings and the like. Not that this has anything to do with street art, which I think is kind of oversaturating the art book market now currently anyway. Anyhow I was pondering how a book compiling this project, which I think is somewhat of an extraordinary project, could very well become a reality, if everyone would be willing to be a part of it. Yes, you've got your zillion other Moly X groups going on, but this one stands out, with the larger-scale sketchbooks (as opposed to the accordian style of the Moly X groups). I was particularly inspired by the recent release of the 1,000 Journals Project book, and now film (out soon), and the way it went on to explain the idea behind the project, and how the art was showcased throughout the book.
Anyhow, this can be pitched to some major publishers or we can go the self-publishing route through online publishing groups like Lulu and Blurb. Perhaps we can even get a sponsorship from the Moleskine company. I don't think the reality of this kind of endeavor materializing is in any way out of reach, judging by the quality of work and the nature of the project. We, as artists get more exposure, Moleskine gets more exposure, plus, it would be just plain cool to hold an actual book, in material form (beyond our own sketchbooks), and seeing all our work inside.
I know this project is Andrea's baby first and foremost, so I'd love to hear what she thinks. I also know of the hard work and dedication everyone else involved has put into this and would be curious as to what everyone else might think. So please, give some feedback here when you can folks.
