With A Pencil In My Pocket

A color-inspired adventure. One pencil per month in the mail!

Over 100 folks each received a colored pencil each month for 20 months. With each new color, their task was to go out into the world and have some sort of adventure inspired by their pencil color and color name. Participants recorded their outings in a project journal, writing each account with the very colored pencil that inspired it. Browse the gallery to read a few sample journal pages.

2009. Thank you to Felissimo for project funding and lots of pencils!
