Print Exchange

This fall I took part in a print exchange put on by the Sketchbook Project and I recently received my prints from the exchange in the mail! I was wanting to challenge myself with something creative and this was a great exercise to wake up my artistic side. The sketchbook organizes some really interesting art projects so if you've never heard of them check them out. For this particular project I had to produce an edition of 11 prints with the theme "greetings from a distant land. I then sent the prints in to the nice folks at the sketchbook project and about a month later I received 10 prints from different artists all over the world! The sketchbook project kept one of my prints for their collection and sent the rest out to other artists. It was so exciting to get a collection of art in the mail, you can see the print I made at the top of this post and the prints I received are bellow.

Doing this project around Echo prompted her to do an art exchange with other kids around the country which was also really cool to see. I love the prints I received and I want to look in to getting them framed and hung somewhere in the house. What a cool way to score some original artwork!
