The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project, at the Brooklyn Art Library, collects artists sketchbooks into a cataloged exhibition. You can see some of the work in their digital library.


Also, I found out that Portland’s own Pinball Publishing had a hand in making some of the blank journals that the artists used to get started.  Below is nice video of their operation and how they make their Scout Books.  I’d love to get my hands on some of those…!

Pinball Publishing is where we make Scout Books. These are the people and the machines that make it all happen. We love what we do and hope you enjoy this peek behind the scenes of our Southeast Portland operation. Scout Books are Little Books for Big Ideas. Boom!
