My sketchbook featuring hyperhidrosis is now on tour. Please check for a city and date near you, go visit, and send me some pictures of you with my sketchbook!
Right now it’s in Brooklyn, NY until April 30th.
My sketchbook has now been digitized, so anyone in the world can view it and learn about my life as a puddle! Please note, it might take a while for the images to load.
Go to my profile and then click on the artwork tab. I’ve noticed it’s faster to scroll one by one to view each page rather than clicking view the entire sketchbook. An added bonus? You get to see what my handwriting looks like.
A special thank you to my husband for offering to pay for the cost of this project so that I can further spread my message about hyperhidrosis awareness and activism. All of the deadlines for this project came during my layoff, so it means a lot that we were able to still splurge on something that means a lot to me.
I also posted the dates and cities for when the sketchbooks go on tour. If you live in or will be near one of these cities, I’d love for you to see my sketchbook in person. Hold it in your sweaty hands and take a picture with it. Post it on my Facebook page, Tweet it to me, or email it to me. My email address is listed on the last page of the sketchbook.
Happy sweaty viewing!

Sweaty peeps! If any of you live in or will be near these cities on these dates, I’d love for you to check out this exhibit and find my sketchbook. The Sketchbook Project 2012 is sponsored by the Brooklyn Art Library and features an evolving collection of artists’ sketchbooks. These sketchbooks will be going on a world tour, which means hyperhidrosis will be featured worldwide! While I’m not much of an artist, I decided to use my sketchbook as a platform to create hope and awareness for those who have hyperhidrosis and for anyone else who has ever felt uncomfortable in their own skin. The theme of my sketchbook is hope. It’s cataloged as the same name as my blog, Hyperhidrosis–My Life as a Puddle (and other adventures). It will be digitized, so once I get the information on that I will post a link for you here. I also have an artist profile on the Sketchbook Project’s site.
So, if you are able to make it and can find my sketchbook, it would mean the world to me if you’d take a picture of yourself with it (or just the book itself if you’re camera shy) and either email it to me via the email address listed on my blog or post it on my facebook page. If you don’t want your picture re-posted here or don’t want it on facebook but still want to email it to me, that’s totally fine. Just tell me so when you email it to me privately. I will not post your photo or any identifiable information if you don’t want me to. I would simply appreciate any photos from this project that I can get as a personal visual of our sweaty little community here.
