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

good idea

dont think ive seen many things like this on ng, was a good idea, nice interface, but there was a big lack of female artists...any reason?

That was wonderful! Stick with the brown paper.

What a great idea! And excellent execution too!

It's great to see 'traditional' art works from these flash artists.

Personally, I think you should stick to the brown paper. White paper is just so boring. Surely these *talented* artists can overcome something like that. :)

Anyways.. I liked it tremendously! I hope to see another!

Awesome

Thanks, Luis. This is amazing.

Really hate my part. Shouldn't have screwed around with pastels...
And WTF?! I should've put a little more thought into it.

Can't wait to do it again next year.

Beautiful. It was a surprise to see the sheer range of styles, textures, colors, etc. It was great how many feelings and messages were accessible in this project, perhaps something that would of been impossible by a single artist. It's also a fantastic way to discover other great artists that maybe one hasn't learned about yet. I usually don't like collabs, and I'm not even sure if this would be considered one, but if it is, it's by far one of the best I've ever seen. Outstanding. Hope to see another one next year.
