About a month ago, I was invited to participate in this program called Sketch Travel. It is a really great idea that was started up by an illustrator in Paris named Gerald Guerlais. The general idea is somebody makes a drawing in a sketchbook, and passes the book on to the next artist. Eventually the book will travel all over the world. After the book is completed, there is going to be an exhibition and auction, with all proceeds going to charity.
Well last week the sketchbook that started in Paris and travelled to San Francisco, made it into my hands in New York. The drawings and paintings in it were absolutely stunning. I felt very honored (and a little nervous) to be invited to contribute to this book.
Below is a copy of my contribution.
I am going to pass the book onto Peter De Seve, who will pass it onto Dice Tsutsumi and then this precious sketchbook will be off to Japan.
