The Pink Dinosaur Project and a Self-Imposed Challenge

By now you know about the Pink Dinosaur Project, Art Evolved's massive cancer research charity fundraiser. All you have to do to support the project is draw a pink dinosaur and send it in to artevolved(at)gmail(dot)com. And if you are under the delusion that you can't draw, you may donate directly here.

I've had this project on my mind for several days now.

I've also had this little Artist and Craftsman Supply watercolor sketchpad for a long time. I decided it was time to do something special with it. It's not very big, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do my first themed Sketchbook.

Here's the book in the middle of modification...

And here she is after modification. Dealing with the spiral binding itself wasn't as hard as I expected -- except for those tiny holes.

So what's my goal here? I want to draw one pink dinosaur per day. I'm not stopping until the book is full. Full of pastel-colored archosaurian goodness.

Great idea! With this we'll probably have the event reaching its goal in no time!

^ I was even thinking of auctioning the finished sketchbook off, but I'll have to see how things go.
