With less than a week before assignments begin, we are totaling in with 80 participants from all over the united states! This totally rocks because we were realistically anticipating only about 50 doodlers with the high hopes for around 100. We hit a very satisfactory middle ground. A big thank you to everyone who helped us spread the word to get this many people on board.
A Couple Notes,
We are officially in the crunch zone on our end of this project to get books back to everyone on time for our February 1st start date. We are still receiving orders from our sketch book suppliers and mailing them out with prioritization on distance (how far you live from Northampton) and are confident that everyone will get their books on time. If you live in Northampton/Amherst/Hadley, we will most likely be hand delivering your books over this upcoming weekend.
If for any reason you decide you want to change how you receive your assignments just shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get that straightened out.
Also, if you decide you want your sketch book to remain anonymous, we have all the books numbered and corresponding to a master list of participants. You don't have to put your name anywhere in or on your book if you don't want to because we can track you through this numeric system in order to make sure you get your book back. I will say though, it would be nice if everyone at least signed their 8 "trade" drawings, but that would obviously compromise your anonymity. Do whatever you want, I guess.
Well that is all for now, as per usual, don't hesitate with any questions, see our email address above.
Hope everyone is well and ready to draw like crazy for two months!
