Pen Pal Painting Exchange and the 2014 Sketchbook Project Progress

Back in August 2013 I participated in the Brooklyn Art House Co-op's Pen Pal Painting Exchange. I received a 4 x 4 canvas in the mail, then returned my finished painting to the Brooklyn Art Library where it was displayed, and then my painting was sent away to another artist and I got a new painting in return.

Painting I received from the Pen Pal Painting Exchange. The fortune reads 'You will have a wonderful weekend'. 
Lately I've been crafting away on my 2014 Sketchbook Project Sketchbook which is due to be postmarked by January 15, 2014. I've selected the Central US tour so that it can visit my homeland and I've chosen the theme 'Strange Neighbors".

First sketch: me as a "peeping Tom" in oil pastel
I'm wanting to add more interactive and pop-up elements to this sketchbook. I hope I'll have time to photograph my finished book before I mail it off.
