The sketchbook challenge 2012

You didn't really think that after all the fun we've had this year with the sketchbook challenge that we wouldn't come back for another round in 2012 did you?  We've had such a good time working in our sketchbooks and seeing all of you working in yours to quit now!

I'm very happy to announce that Susan Brubaker Knapp and Pam Carriker will be joining the Sketchbook Challenge 2012 lineup and you'll be seeing posts from them on the sketchbook blog soon.

2012 promises to be another great year for the sketchbook challenge packed with techniques, tutorials, and of course 12 new themes to inspire your creative muse.

We're all very excited about the continuing the challenge into 2012 and we hope you'll all join us!


  1. I am so honored – and happy – to be joining you!

  2. Yeah! Glad to hear that we can look forward to another fun year! Thank you all!!

  3. Wow - What an inspiration you all are! As someone who spends so much time focusing on teaching 170 kids a day that I forget to think about my own work, this has been a wonderful kick in the bootie to pull out all my sketchbooks and start moving the pen! Thank you for that!

  4. Great news - I've been wondering how i'd survive without the challenge next year! Thanks everyone for keeping the fun going.

  5. I didn't participate much this year and was so hoping that I would have another chance in 2012. Yeah! I will!! Thanks!!

  6. Yeah. This has been wonderful. Count me in again for next year. xx

  7. Cool!!!! I'm so glad I need other people themes to motivate me :)
