In my last blog post, I hinted that there might be some excitement around here as I continue to spread the word about the Illuminated Travel Journaling workshop in Taos Next summer. Early-bird registration is in it’s final weeks and spots are starting to fill! While we will be accepting registration for the course through early spring time while space is available, I didn’t want anyone to miss out on the chance for the $200 savings now!. What better way to spread the word than with a give-away!! Here’s your chance to win the Go Forth and Doodle sketch-journaling set!
The Go Forth and Doodle give-away set includes a few must have tools to begin your sketching adventure right now! There is a moleskin brand blank book, tricked out with GFaD art work, complete with a place for ephemera in the back of the book. This little book is great for ink or pencil drawings, notes about your travels and doings, a general “butterfly catcher” to enhance deeper work in other books later. I like to work and write in these books with Pigma Micron pens, so I’ve included one as part of this give-away set.
There is also, a more watercolor friendly handmade blank book, made by me out of sturdy paper that can take some wet work and color play. Also tiny in size, this little book is a good one to sit and paint in when out at the park or the public market.
One cannot watercolor with out some paints and a brush, so this give-away includes a Niji waterbrush and an Altoid tin watercolor set, which you have seen multiple times here in the past. These tools make it so easy to grab quick, sketchy studies just about anywhere! And the water is in the pen!!
The whole set can fit in a coat pocket or a small bag or case and with a little practice, you’ll be drawing, sketching and painting like mad wherever you go!
So how do you go about getting in on this gift? The only thing you really must do, so I can keep official tabs of who has entered to win, is to submit a comment to this post on this blog. I love to hear from you on Facebook and Twitter and beyond, but those comments can get lost in the shuffle, and I’d hate to miss anyone who’s name should be among those in the hat. So comment below and you’re in for the give-away! Simple and quick as that. If you know other sketchers who might like to win this give-away, or even better, to join us in Taos next summer, pass the word! Below is a video to share. Best of luck!
I’ll pull the name of one lucky winner from the hat at 7 pm, Saturday December 14 (EST), one day before the end of early-bird registration. So have your comments in before 6:55! Thanks again for passing on the word of this wonderful work. I hope to see you in Taos!
