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

A few words ...

It has been a great while since Jeff or I have posted anything to this site. The book is only half filled to this point and a few participants have held onto this book way beyond the time we have allotted to them. As a result, the book is so far past the project completion deadline, I'm surprised we have any anticipation from the remaining participants signed up. The final deadline to have this project completed was January 2009, 5 months ago. I'm sure some of you feel the same level of frustration that Jeff and I are going through.

I want to be as clear and tactful as possible here. If you signed up for this project and decide it's too much for you to handle when the book arrives, please, send the book forward to the next participant. It hasn't been fair to those that have followed the rules and those still waiting to participate. If you are still not sure of the guidelines, please take a closer look at them HERE.



Dave Habben and Dan Goodsell have sent in their teasers and I am still waiting for Dan's backstory. Kudos to both of them for keeping the book moving after such a long and stagnant period.

I do understand your frustration, guys and I could assure that each illustrator that took part on this project was very busy, and even though, some of us managed to keep our personal death lines just fine. I just can't understand those who don't.

It's not fair, as you said. I hope the following illustrators take this seriously.

Good luck SFG BBP!
