This was a rather ambitious project, the idea was to send out the pages of a sketchbook to NG members all over the globe, their task was to draw all over it and mail it back to me.
At the end of the project the sketchbook was reassembled and the finished version now rests at the Newgrounds HQ.
Since not everyone can visit the office to see the real thing, this online version was built.
It doesnt come close to the experience of seeing the real drawings but it does let you see what everyone did.

There was about 72 entries sent out, 61 returned.
All in all a successful project and this will eventually migrate into being a part of the redesigned ng site when it is released through the efforts of Stamper.

Thanks to everyone who participated, sorry you all hated that brown paper, lol. And I'll be running this again next year, using white paper. See ya next year

Some people were wondering how much this project costed:
72 entries mailed at approx. $2.50 = $177
binding = $5.00
3 sketchbooks taken apart = 3 x 7.00 = $21.00

GRAND TOTAL = $203.00

great idea

Great idea you had here.
Everything from peoples hand drawn scribbles to pieces that looked like they took a nice amount of effort.
Different styles in there portraiting how age differences can be set aside to look at some cool illustrations. Some people in their teens drew some really interesting stuff, and some people in their 20's+ drew some great sketches.
Interactivity was a basic next button, but hey, it worked! hah

Overall, nice to see some people even thought outside the "box".

Very Cool.

I never knew about this sketchbook project until now. It's great that you were able to share this with us. On to the review....
First if all, the menu was very good, I like how you made different categories like artsy, bbs mod, etc. and that you credited the people that drew the pictures.
Second of all, the variety of each picture was very good, and they were all unique in some way. Plus most of them were drawn very well.

Overall, this is one of the most unique projects on Newgrounds.
Thank you Stamper and Luis!

Pretty awesome

First I'd like to say, the beginning letter, that was funny. Anyways, the pictures. Some of them were funny, some of them were... Odd... And some were just Awesome (Not to mention the ones that were complicatedly interesting). Tom Fulp's drawing, I have no comment. I'll be honest about Tom's picture though, I was disappointed. I thought it was going to be something crazy, but oh well. That city, by Sean... Holy crap that was awesome. The Penny... Mr. Rodger's Trolley... NOW, thanks to you, I'll be like, "Hey, Mr. Rodger's Trolley!" everytime I look on the back of a Penny.

All in all, that was awesome. Can't wait for the next one (If there is going to be a next one.)
