I completed filling up my sketchbook (more or less) a couple of weeks ago; I have yet to mail it in. It’s a little intimidating looking at some of the entries on the website (go ahead, take a look), but it’s also sort of neat knowing that a bunch of people will be looking at your random bits of art. Although from some of the entries, it looks like actually drawing in the book is a rarity.
Since I chose to have my sketchbook scanned in as well, this ranks up there as the most expensive sketchbook I’ve ever bought.
Either way, it was a fun experience. Gave me an excuse to doodle, although I don’t think I’ll be doing this again. The “story” was centered on the last minute data collection for a paper I had to do with my iRobot Create-based research robot, Rosi, told in the style of full-size comic pages. As this robot has given me trouble from almost the very start, it wasn’t hard coming up with material.
