Hi All

Round three peeps, please finish up the books you have and get them back to their owners.

Also, this is a space to throw out ideas for Round 4.  Should we do less people and go around twice?

How should I screen new members?  Generally I would just do it by asking artists I had recently been following or enjoying, but I have struck out with that way a few times now.  :(  Some folks just don't understand the level of commitment.

Those of you who have been doing this for a while or who have branched out and done sketchbook exchanges of your own, what advice do you have?

I am not starting another round until all books are back to their owners, so if you know who has your book, hit them up and encourage them to get it finished.

Happy fall to all!

Since a lot of people who aren't participating commented about the commitment and not being able to do this for lack of time, what if we all do the smaller sizes (A5 or A6) books?

I can ask around if anyone i know would like to participate, though like you said - I can't be a 100% sure they'll follow through.

I like the bigger ones better but would be willing to go back to the A5s--I am no fan of the A6s!

I;d like a balance between getting it done on time and doing good work. I guess commitment is really key here.

I can't DO anything about moving sketchbooks along because I haven't got one and haven't had one in while.

The A5 is the Large sketchbook, right?
I think that would be nice.

I found this page through my friend Johnny Norms. This is something I tried participating in a long time ago but I never recieved the journals back. With a smaller group like this, I'd love to participate with you. My site is Please stop by and check my creativity. If you think I'd be a good fit here, wonderful. If not, no worries. I still enjoy your artwork. ~Jay
