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.

No wonder this took so long to come out, it's incredible!
Nothing negative to say on this piece, I think the whole thing is incredible! I hope I'll be part of the 2009 one (if there is one) and thanks a bunch Luis for organizing this!

Also, kudos to NinjaDonut for mentionning my piece in his review. Tee heee :3

I'm a pain =D Changing my username!

The sketchbook turned out amazing, and The Swain did an excellent job voicing did like the little comments he added in there. I was surprise Tom did make anything this year, but nice job compiling it Luis. Sketchbook keeps getting better and better. What was with the Newgrounds Block Smash so random, but fun. =D Also nice job with the programming El-Presidente. I hope to see a Sketchbook 09.

Fantastic job everyone!

Was I really the last one to get in? Wow, I'm glad then that I did :D Thanks Luis

Each year this tour gets better and better, both the art, and the culminating project. This year's is very nice, very clean, with great graphics. The game was fun too ;D

Luis, if you ever need help with any of the work, just give me a yell and I'd be glad to help out! Great work everybody!

All of these pieces were better than last years, the ONLY thing i dislike is the lack of easter eggs, and mister picklehead's piece :P

Swain did a great job with the voices even though I kind of miss hearing Blockhead tryin' to say the usernames. Impressive amount of pages and great amount of different styles. Loved some of the comments too.

Great tour - just a bloody great tour. I'm gonna celibrate! You should too!
