Hello artists and drawers, I would like to collaborate with you!

I'm starting a project called "We All Fall Down" which will basically be a collaborative sketchbook. The concept being that art, specifically work in sketchbooks, is more than just absent-minded doodles they are a way for people to cope and respond to the events in their lives, be they positive or negative, and how those memories are reactivated when you view these sketches later on. I want to recreate this feeling of recollection for a general audience.

My plan for the actual project is going to be a sketchbook filled with sketchbook pages created by different people, and when the viewer turns to a specific drawing a voice recording of that person will play, telling the viewer how they were feeling at the time of the drawing by just describing their feelings, with an anecdote about the situation and how the drawing relates to it, or however the artist wants to relay their state of mind in relation to the drawing.

Where YOU come in) What I want is to get sketchbook pages from at the very least 6 different people. I want sketches from a time where you were going through something that was particularly distressing/difficult/upsetting for you, for example your parents divorcing, a bad break up, financial difficulties, a bout of depression, a death, and etcetera. Those are just some suggestions of course, whatever you deem difficult for you at a certain time. In addition to the sketchbook page, I would like you to also send me the story behind your work, via a voice recording or even a simple video recording (I'll only be using the audio) as described in my plan. Please only send me sketches you drew at that time or in the past, I don't want a sketch you made specifically for this project, authenticity is very important to me. I don't want to put names on the pages but if you want to have your name with your sketch say it at the end or the beginning of the voice recording, I would prefer anonymity but if you're uncomfortable with that I understand.  

My purpose for doing this it to bring a larger sense of fellowship amongst different people, even when we are in pain and feel like we are alone there is always another person feeling the same way. I notice when people are upset they often retreat from others and become engulfed in their sadness, making the situation worse. This is a way for both the artist to relate their experiences with others and for viewers to connect with the emotions the artist felt.

Other information) Please have all sketchbook pages (best quality possible) and video/voice recordings sent to me by April 1 via my personal e-mail try to keep the recordings under 2 minutes please and above all else please be genuine. Feel free to e-mail me with any specific questions.

Thank you for choosing to work with me to make this piece a reality,
Karlyssa Lussier :)

Regarding your comment on Melissa Debling's picture of Oxfol

For one this dude has "unkown girl" deviations on his "gallery". What kind of artists/photograph/model/make-up artist or what not would not the name of the people he/she is working with.
Then again, his random assortment of different girls and cropped pictures make it also difficult to believe he/she "did" any of thoses... rather than just stealing them and posting here trying to catch some attention.
