I love this preview of Jim Woodring’s new book of sketchbook drawings, Problematic, and not just for a peek at the contents, but also for the chance to listen to Jim talk about the very act of keeping a small sketchbook. He uses small Moleskine sketchbooks and says this of them:

This is great: ten drawing tips from Gary Panter, including such gems as:

Most people (even your favorite artists) don’t like their drawings as much as they want to. Why? Because it is easy to imagine something better.

Bryce Wymer has a whole series of these time-lapse videos of him drawing and painting in his sketchbooks. It’s probably just for the videos, but I am impressed that the books don’t appear to move during filming.

The Sketchbook Project is a traveling exhibition of sketchbooks created by artists like you. Anyone—from anywhere in the world—can be a part of the Project. (via The Sketchbook Project)
This reminds me of the 1000 Journals Project from a few years back, although this one costs you a minimum of $25 to enter. Still, if you’re interested, check them out.

Buy a 32-page Megabolt Sketchbook, and a child in a hospital will receive one, too. All books are hand numbered so that you can see the name and city of who received your donation. And if the child/family wishes, art from the child’s matching sketchbook will be viewable online, so you can see how your donation was put to use.
