The Sketchtravel art book has finally been published ! Words cannot even begin to describe the sheer beauty of the art work found inside this book – so I won’t. Enjoy ! -
The Sketchtravel is a unique international charity art project. This red sketchbook was passed from one artist’s hand to another like an Olympic torch in an artistic relay through 12 countries over 4 and half years.
This traveling museum contains the personal visions of 71 exceptional illustrators, animators and comic book artists, including artists such as Bill Plympton, James Jean, Rebecca Dautremer, Glen Keane, Frederick Back, and Hayao Miyazaki. Initiated by illustrators Dice Tsutsumi (Japan) and Gerald Guerlais (France), the project will culminate in an auction of the original book in Brussels on October 17, 2011. Proceeds from the auction and royalties from the book’s publication will be donated to the international literacy non-profit, Room to Read.
For more information on the book and a complete list of artists who participated, go to sketchtravel.com.
Book details : Hardcover, with illustrations by 71 artists spanning 192 pages.
