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.

Very very nice job

This years tour turned out really great. Lots of great entries. Oh yeh never mind mine. Heh.

Some entries were meme related, others were quite original. I actually liked this year better than the last. A lot more artists than before, and even more eye soothing pleasure for all viewers... also beware of giant clitoris and penises. Sigh. Well anyways great job. :)

Wow. Elegant to look at and cycle through.

This was an amazing tour and I'm glad I took it. The music keeps you entertained with either something upbeat or something mellow. The sketchbook is filled with glorious and creative renditions of artwork. I'd also like to point out that this tour comes with great information based on each author, facts, stats, etc. So all in all, Luis out did himself organizing this one and everyone who contributed deserves a nice pat on the back. I'm glad I actually kept and continued cycling through it. Information can be interesting. Great pictures. I'll look forward to seeing the previous two after this and 2009s.
