Every three minutes someone in the world reports a UFO.

The Sketchbook Project: 2011
I received my book for the Sketchbook Tour today!  I'm pumped.  I mean, I have NO idea what I'm going to put in it, but it's exciting!  Hahaha.  If you haven't heard of it or checked it out, you should.  They send you a Moleskine and you get to choose a theme (I picked "Things Found on Restaurant Napkins") and you fill out this entire notebook with WHATEVER you want.  You can do pretty much whatever you want with it, you just have to make sure it's postmarked by January 15th, 2011.  Then the book will be put in the Brooklyn Art Library for a bit, then go to the Austin Museum of Art for SXSW, then the SPACE Gallery in Maine, the Granite Room in Atlanta, Transformer Gallery in Washington DC, somewhere in Chicago, Form/Space Atelier in Seattle, 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, and then Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.  (What a run-on-sentence... haha.) Then it will be sent back to the Brooklyn Library forever?  I think.  I don't know.  But the point is, it's AWESOME.  You should definitely sign up.  It's 25$, but it's so awesome.  I mean, you get a book that YOU created in a library for the world to check out!  It's AWESOME.  I kind of wish that the tour was coming to a place closer to me than Brooklyn or Chicago... like, TORONTO... but I guess I'll just have to take a trip there to see it.  Haha!  I just think it's so cool, and every time that someone checks out your book, you get a notification.  I think it's awesome.  Haha.  I still have no idea what I'm going to do with the book, but I've got a few months to work on it!  Any suggestions?  What is the weirdest thing YOU have found on a restaurant napkin?  Haha. I think I may change the topic a BIT... and go for more weird things found on restaurant tables, or something like that.  I don't know.  We'll see.
