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

Christian Elden - Paramount Goodness

This morning I received images from Christian Elden in Indiana. The Blank Book is really starting to take shape and I can't wait to finally see all of the incredible illustration that grace the pages.

This is Christian Elder proudly displaying the SFG BBP Box in front of Anderson's historic Paramount Theatre.

Below is a small teaser shot of Christian's illustration.

Christian writes:

I just packed the box up tonight & will send it out tomorrow.

I decided to use one page as a tiny history lesson on my town, and the other is dedicated to the landmark I chose, the historic Paramount Theatre.

Entertainers such as Frank Sinatra, Nat "King" Cole, Roberta Peters, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the Artie Shaw Orchestra, Louie Armstrong, Woody Herman, and Gene Autry all performed there in its heyday.

I used a couple different styles, too, to mix it up. I was really inspired by all the other participants' work already in the book -- this thing is gonna be awesome & I'm glad I was able to contribute a small piece!

For more info on Anderson's Paramount Theatre visit

The book is now on it's way to our next participant, Josh Hoye.

Yes! I'm so happy this book is still going strong. I'm completley jealous of everyone who came after me. You lucky people get to see soooo much fantastic work in person! I can't wait until it's all finished. Great teaser Christian. :)
