Someday, I will go to Brooklyn:
Check it out; choose a theme for your sketchbook and order a copy ($25) before October 31, 2011. Sketch your heart out and send it back to the coop before Jan. 31, 2012. For an extra $20 your sketches will be digitized and made freely available on the Web. The physical sketchbooks will tour various cities, including Vancouver, BC, and will then be permanently housed in the Brooklyn Art Library.
How cool is that?
