“My sketchbook has become attached to my hand this past summer in a way I wasn’t expecting. I’ve found that after one year of college, I can’t separate the way I take notes or sketch, because to me they’re both similar tools of capturing an experience. My sketchbook has become a combination of life sketches, anxious lists, random notes and thumbnails about what I just drew and what I might draw. Parts of it have even become like a scrapbook, where I’ll tape a memento that creates a flap to hide a drawing or note behind.”

“I’ve gotten in the habit of bringing my sketchbook and sharpies (thin and thick tipped) around with me everywhere I go, and I usually make a weird doodle when something funny comes to mind! Most of my sketchbook pages are filled with double page spreads where I play with value and continuous line drawings.”

We award prizes in categories based on the submissions we receive. In the past, prizes we’ve given have included “Tremendous Improvement,” “Innovative Brainstorming,” and Honorable Mentions.
