The Sketchbook Project is a mobile library of handmade sketchbooks contributed to by thousands of creative people from across the globe. The Project encourages everyone — from anywhere — regardless of their creative background, to create and share their process with the public.
Participants sign up online (2013 registration now underway) to receive a blank sketchbook, then fill it with artwork and mail it back. The results are cataloged in the Brooklyn Art Library’s permanent collection, displayed online in the Digital Library, and exhibited at museums and arts festivals from coast to coast including right here at The Gladstone July 19th (opening reception), 6-10pm at the 2nd floor gallery.

Amy McLaughlin and Aleksandr Niestroj are the husband/wife design team responsible for the Big Wood Room 403 and are also the creative force behind _sobule design.
_souble design is in the business of critical, practical, and relevant design strategies executed with style, skill, and personality. Partners Amy McLaughlin and Aleksandr Niestroj share backgrounds in art, design, and production giving them a comprehensive arsenal to draw upon for both their own design and client-driven projects.
_sobule is founded on the philosophy that clients’ needs and project criteria should come before designers’ egos. It is their mandate to present design solutions, not inflict them. _sobule prizes flexibility of approach, the ability to realistically assess the possibilities and limitations of a project, and a client-friendly demeanour.
