Yes, Sketchbook 6, the latest addition in our sketchbook (brochure) series is here! Our sketchbooks have become somewhat of a collector’s item over the years. How many from the series have you collected? All five, maybe? Take a picture with your Sketchbook collection (has to be originals and not downloaded versions) and post it to our Facebook wall then I’ll send you Sketchbook 6 along with a coffee mug or t-shirt or something else equally cool! If you don’t have the back issues, you can download them or if you’d like a snazzy hardcopy of 4, 5, or 6, email me (kvanskike (at) taylorstudios (dot) com) your address and I’ll be happy to mail one to you (sorry all out of 1 and 2).
