I got the greatest email yesterday! Remember when I was scrambling to finish my sketchbook?
Well check this out:
We just wanted to let you know that Fabi N. just viewed your sketchbook (#24474) at Brooklyn Art Library in Brooklyn, NY!
Your book has been viewed 1 time so far.
The Brooklyn Art Library Librarian
Is that cool or what? I'm sitting here in Germany snarfing peanut buttered toast and wondering what some fabulous person named "Fabi N" is like. What prompted Fabi to choose my book from the thousands of others surrounding it? Is Fabi German? Is Fabi male? Female? Is Fabi N a clever way to spell Fabian? What did she think when she viewed the Studio Mailbox book? How long did she look at it? Did she like it? Did she hate it? If you asked her about it today would she even remember it? Did she take one of my tear-offs from inside the book and will she visit the blog? Will she find me on Facebook? (My word for 2011 is CONNECT - and don't you forget it)!
Or will this be the single asynchronous interaction Fabi and I have in this one wild lifetime? Fascinating. I could lay around and think about this all day.
Who will be next?
Did I ever show you the accordion perforated tear-offs I attached to the pull-out cards? Just another shameless attempt at self-promotion. But will they work? There are nearly 10,000 books on exhibition with the Art House Co-Op and this was the only way I could think of to give folks a "take away" and the possibility of finding me again. We shall see...
