Resketch on Kickstarter

You wouldn’t normally think an art project would show up on our blog, especially without a spotlight of the creator. Well, that’s what you’re getting today. Because it’s our blog and it’s what we wanna do. So there!

Seriously though, our family at Shawnimals will be the subject of an upcoming small-business spotlight and interview during our “Fabric of America” tour. And timing being what it is, Shawn Smith (half of the duo and the creator of Shawnimals) has just released a new project called Resketch. Being that it’s now on Kickstarter, we want to give it some shine of its own.

The Resketch idea was drummed up by Shawn as a way to both do something fresh with recycled materials, and to spur the creativity from within all you fine folks out there. Shawn is utilizing reused paper – literally, paper gathered from various sources of waste – to create handmade notebooks.

On top of that, Shawn has created drawings and other inspirational writings that appear invariably throughout the notebook. These random inserts are put in the book to give you ideas and help you yank more brilliance from your already-brilliant creative process.

Because he’s Shawn and he always strives for infinite greatness, he also teamed up with a host of his super-talented artist friends to create a limited run of Resketch notebooks with artist-series covers. This includes artists such as Revise CMW, Blütt, Tara McPherson, Jay Ryan, and more. Naturally, one of the covers will also be done by Shawn himself.

This project, and Shawn himself, are perfect examples of the creativity and hustle of the “Fabric of America,” and we fully support the endeavor.
