NG Sketchbook Tour 08

Author Comments

This is the third year I ran this project, it basically consists of mailing out pages from a sketchbook tour to different users all over the globe. They provide the artwork and mail the page back.
Eventually the pages are brought back into the original sketchbook and you are left with a collaborative project done the old school way. This is the online rendition of the result of months and much legwork and stamp licking.

This one took a bit longer to put together than previous years, as this is the first time I dove into dealing with over 100 participants. All in all, it was great deal of fun seeing what people came up with and I hope you enjoy the result of it.

I do like that this sketchbook tour drew to a close at the end of 2008, i felt that it provides a nice time capsule/snapshot of each of these artists for that year. See Ya next year!!

Heres some links to the past sketchbook tours, if youre interested to see how they've evolved.

how do you pick who can be in them? you might could start early and put a lot more people in it. it would be really nice to be able to put some of the less known artists of ng in it. i loved the swain narrorating it and the way the names came up was awesome. i do think that you should put some guidelines for content in it because some of it was a little... wierd...(cuntzilla comes to mind). it seems to be a really popular thing. is there a place i can find how to get in on this? how do you choose who gets in it, besides the obviously popular people?
overall great. more than great!

Unique and fantastic!

I love it! Very cool to surf through all these great art works and see what talents Newgrounds consists of! Very cool menu, and very cool way to make the usernames appear and stuff! Also, great funfacts! A very pleasant, relaxing and inspiring project! AWESOME.


So many collabs, so many cool schetches, and a very original game at the end :P:P:P


This is a pretty amazing collaboration here! So much content in it, so many handrawn notions and swift animations integrated, an artistic masterpiece, the chosen sounds also fit right in, filesize is friggin gigantic but the wait really was worthwhile, keep up the great work!



Smooth, inspiring and hilarious. The music was awesome. The voicing was better. And some of that work initiated a set of circumstances that ended in my having to change my pants. I'll just leave the details up to the imagination.
