Sketchtravel

Sketchtravel is an exciting new project initiated by Dice Tsutsumi (of Blue Sky fame) and French animation artist Gérald Guerlais. The idea is to take one sketchbook, deliver it all over the world to more than fifty different artists, and end up with one amazing book of original artwork. It’s not a contest and the artists aren’t participating for profit – it’s about bringing together talented artists from around the globe and inspiring an exchange of visual ideas. The completed sketchbook will be exhibited in the Arludik Gallery in Paris and auctioned off for charity. So far, participating artists include Pierre Alary, Rebecca Dautremer, Andrea Blasich, Alexandra Boiger, Vincent Nguyen, Peter de Sève and Mike Knapp. There’s a nice website with many more details about the project at Sketchtravel.com.
