2017 Accordion Fold Sketchbook Project

Image Art by @NikkiMay

Every day in 2017 I drew in a Moleskine Japanese (Accordion Fold) Album (pocket size) with the goal of completing one continuous drawing all year. I filled up nearly six complete sketchbooks, completing a drawing that is 5.5 inches high and more than 600 inches wide. Now, what do I do with it?

    Wow, I love the description and effort put into this. I've been eager to get my hands on an accordion fold sketchbook just to see what I would come up with. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks OKAT, I’m addicted to them! I probably have close to 20 of them that I’ve filled over the past 10 years or so. Trying to figure out how to get good scans of them all!

    Thanks Lauren! I need scan/photograph the whole SIX Moleskines and do a giant blog post. In the meantime, you can see most of it in bits and pieces on my Instagram from all of 2017! instagram.com/nikkidale
