Synopses & Reviews
Sketchtravel is an artistic journey unlike any other. No editorial project has ever before brought together as many visual artists around a common object. Passed between 72 artists over 5 years and across over 35,000 miles, the Sketchtravel sketchbook showcases the creativity of artists in numerous disciplines from around the world. Illustrators, animators, painters, and more each illustrated a page with their unique style before passing the book to the next artist. Reflecting a who's who of popular contemporary artists, this imaginative diverse collection of artwork will inspire art lovers with its scope, diversity, and beauty, much as it did each artist who contributed a link in its chain.
" If you're a fan of many of the artists or just want a dose of inspiration, though, Sketchtravel is a must-own. Seeing so many people come together out of a pure love for art is something special, and the end product is just as invigorating."- Upcoming Pixar
"Sketchtravel is a beautiful reproduction of the art as well as photographs of all of the participating artists. "
"It's a gorgeous collection of material and great way to celebrate the artists represented. These include Hayao Miyazaki, Frederic Back, Bill Plympton, Enrico Casarosa, Bill Pressing, Peter DeSeve, Ronnie Del Carmen, Glen Keane, Nicolas Marlet, Mike Mignola, Lou Romano and many many others. It's truly inspirational stuff. Highly Recommended!" -Cartoon Brew
