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

Adam Levine - 40 Flavors

Adam Levine wrote to me yesterday afternoon and wanted to share his story of meeting Melinda Beavers to receive the book.

Adam writes:

"Talk about a fun time! Well I will...So like you've already heard, I met with Melinda and my girlfriend the other day to pass off the book. I had a blast. It was nice to meet another artist, especially from SFG!

We met at a train station, went to a restaurant for dinner and wound up in a colorful sugary frosted wonderland! The restaurant was nice because it gave us time to get to know each other. We talked about SFG, the people who's work we admire, and tons of dorky art related topics. There was never an awkward moment or a deafening silence. We spoke of our pasts, and where we were going from here. We both brought our current sketch books and swapped them as we explored the fun stuff that drips out of our heads and lands in our moleskines. For dessert, we wound up at a cute little ice cream joint known as "40 Flavors." The colors were rich and the ice cream was richer. We all sat around at a picnic table and continued to bond over frozen gooey goodness. This project is such a great idea and I can't wait to see how it evolves over the coming months. I hope everyone has an experience like we did.

I know Melinda sent you some great photos and above is one more of us picking out the most delicious flavor of all!"

Thanks for the cool story Adam. It sounds like you and Melinda had a great meeting, and I know we are all excited to get a sugar frosted taste of what you are preparing in the blank book of delicious illustration.
