What is the
SFG Blank Book Project?

The SFG Blank Book Project is a traveling sketchbook created collaboratively by Jeff Andrews and Steph Doyle.

For approximately 500 days, the sketchbook will travel from Washington DC to 50 illustrators around the world. Once the book arrives, each illustrator has 7 days to complete a sketch and send the book on to the next illustrator. The book will reach its final destination approximately mid-December, 2008.

The theme for this inaugural book is, "Where I Live." We hope to launch a second book project at the begining of the new year

Melinda Beavers - Van Vleck Gardens

Today, Melinda Beavers sent me the back story and teaser shot of her blank book illustration. I can't wait to see the complete sketch.

The title of her piece is: "In the Garden"

Melinda writes:

"Van Vleck Gardens in Montclair. I chose this setting as the subject of my contribution. Being only 2 blocks from my apartment, I have walked here many times. It is open to the public daily all year round. Peaceful, serene, and incredibly inspiring, it reminds me of all the hidden treasures Montclair has to offer, as well as it’s incredible appreciation for the arts and culture. This project has actually been a great way for me to look at my time here and reminisce as I say goodbye to Montclair. I will be moving to New Mexico next month, I hope my new home is as diverse and extraordinary as Montclair has been. "

Yesterday afternoon Melinda personally passed the SFG Blank Book on to Adam Levine in an appropriate setting called "40 Flavors." The above shot is a reflection of the meeting in the window of the 40 Flavors ice cream shop. Pictured from left to righ: Kat (Adam’s girlfriend), Melinda, and Adam, appreciating some Sugar Frosted Goodness.

Apparently during the meeting, some of the Sugar Frosted Goodness was caught trying to escape the box. It looks like the meeting between Melinda and Adam was a lot of fun.

Adam Levine now has the blank book and has informed me that he will be handing the book off personally to Jim Bradshaw.

I am in a state of anticipatory glee. Imagine that sugary box is heading my way. Hey Melinda, I used to commute to Montclair. It was my first steady job out of art school. Maybe you heard of Lehner & Whyte on 8-10 S. Fullerton. I loved the town. I guess you will miss it. I hope it goes well in New Mexico. Sounds cool.

Speaking of cool. Adam, you ice cream animal. I hope you didn't get your fill. Looking forward to meeting you.
