Sketchtravel

Nothing to post as of late, which of course can only mean that i'm chained to a lightbox somewhere on a production.... :)
Buuut, I thought I would share this video as I found it very interesting and inspiring. If you haven't heard of Sketchtravel, it's a simple idea that has seen one sketchbook travel across the world, being passed from one incredible artist to the next (each having to act as the delivery guy/gal), it's pages being filled by said artists.
I remember Gerald talking about it at Annecy '08 and it's amazing to see how it has finally come together. (Official Blog)

One Book – 70 Artists – No Boundaries from Creative Talent Network on Vimeo.


I can only imagine how scary it was to work in this book, especially, as they said, when it started getting filled up with invaluable pieces of art! :/
Not sure when I'll be back on the blog, so until then, enjoy the arrival of spring and the lighter evenings, take it easy and..
'Till the Next,
L

Hey!!!
I remember when we met Gerald that year in Annecy. The whole sketchtravel book thing was so new back then, i didn't realize how big it would be. I remember saying to him "Oh, i'd be happy to do a picture for your book". Ha ha haa!! i remember thinking he was quite rude when he said, "Errr, No. Not this time". Little did i know, that he would be getting Glean Keane, Miyazaki, Peter de Seve and most of the greatest living artists of today to draw in it. Man do i feel like a fool now!! ;P
Oh well, thats Tor-Tor!! :)

This video is from CTN. I actually saw a little bit of this talk, but couldn't stay cos i had to get back to my booth. Cheers for posting!! Its good to see the bits i missed :)

Hope the new job is goin' you well? Now the longer nights are kicking in, does this mean you'll start goin' back to 'le jardin du lux'? :)

Tchoi!! ;P

Lol Yeah looking back, that was pretty funny! :D
Would like to at some point, but as I said, I'm pretty much chained to the desk (I'm in today - Saturday). Maybe soon!
Tchoi!
