Sketchbook Month is now closed. Congrats to Everyone!

Sketchbook Month 2011 is officially over. Congratulations to all the artists who participated. I laid down a challenge and quite a few of you took it up. By the end of the month over 780 sketches were posted and the blog received over 15,400 page views.  There were 51 artists who participated from a total of six countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, Jordan, Norway and the U.S.).  Several of you told me how much fun you had and a few of you made some new connections with other artists. You can all be proud of the terrific, inspiring work you did.

I also owe a *huge* thank you to my lovely wife for the countless hours she spent uploading everyone’s art onto the blog. Honey, you’re the best! What would I do without you?

I for one definitely grew as an artist over the past month and I hope the same for all of you. Keep on a-sketchin’!

    thank you both

    Yes a hearty cheers to your wife! She did a great job! Also, everyone who participated thanks for sharing your amazing talents. I was truly inspired with so much style diversity.

  5. Thanks so much, Cedric and Jennie. We appreciate your hard work and the great idea! Here’s to hoping sketchbook month is around next year!

  6. Artists getting together to inspire and share, it’s a splendid thing. Warm thanks to each one of you. And let’s hear it for Cedric and Jennie!

    Great challenge and a fun exercise for March! I think I’ll look for other online sketching opportunities to continue practicing. 🙂

  8. Thanks a ton Cedric and Jennie! It was a much needed push to start drawing more. 😀

  9. Thanks Cedric for organising such a great endeavour. I dropped the ball towards the end of the month, with a family holiday amongst other things. Had fun though and its certainly inspired and encouraged me to keep on doodling whenever the moment arises.

    I may have even got a new storybook out of one of my sketches so it was definitely a worthwhile exercise.
