This is definitely happening. I got this sketchbook from a friend here in Japan who remains to be unnamed. She challenged me to do this BIG BADASS SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE which is simply the SKETCHBOOK SLAM CHALLENGE (#sketchbookslam) that has a lot of the artists on all forms of social media going.  Basically, its a challenge to fill this 600 page 8×10 sketchbook in one month. I see a lot of the finished sketchbook tours on youtube, instagram and facebook and I thought “WOW!” is that actually possible?

However, since I have a life and I think it would be more productive for me if I can do this challenge without killing my hand. I decided to do things a little differently.

I am currently challenge myself to finish this BIG BADASS SKETCHBOOK and pay it forward and send the challenge to another friend who should do the same once I finish the challenge. The rules of the  MODIFIED SKETCHBOOK SLAM CHALLENGE will be basically to fill this 600 page sketchbook within 3 months  (6  pages per day) with quality sketches or drawings. The pages should be dated and should not be torn (there are page numbers).

I already started last September 1st and is continuing it with the #Sketchtember themes. It would also house some of my Inktober 2018 and other future challenges that I am going to join . I think its a good idea to keep a sketchbook so you can see how much you have grown in style and  what you have learned.

I find it both challenging and engaging to keep drawing in the same sketchbook.  Some of my recent art like GROOT and SUPERMAN   was part of this project as well.  I will soon post a sketchbook tour and a portfolio where you can see the photos of my sketchbook progress soon! Here are some of my favorite sketches from page 1-50 of the Sketchbook Slam.

Keep on Thinking, Creating, Dreaming, and Believing!
