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.

You can see the effort...

As you say, this is old school. but with a twist surely?

The artists have bonded together, recent and experienced, to give to all of us a little insight as to what spurs on their mind.
I was very surprised by Kringels; expecting to see, well more of his 'Madness' unfold, I was interested to see that the page was filled quite lightly, full of possible spoilers? Who knows.

As interestingly luis, yours seems to completely stand out from te rest! Very interesting to see what inspired you there.

I'm still learning Flash myself, but hope to at least get a short out this year, hopefully to even get mention in this stunning array of art.

The Block Game at the end was a little easy, that's all I have to say!

oh yea

That was awesome

very cool art . Under a rock is like Goro's less ambitious brother. Good music too.

Loved it and I think you did a great job getting me interested considering that normally i wouldn't even bother looking for the artwork . 5/5 10/10

And you got Vousielle right... if it's French.
