For the last eight years Sketchbook Project founders Steven Peterman and Shane Zucker have amassed an astonishing collection of more than 30-thousand crowd-sourced sketchbooks from every corner of the world. Touring the country in their mobile library, the project has, over the years, inspired dormant and budding artists, sent a few back to art school, and even served as shared memoirs for cancer survivors.
Now entering the project's ninth year, the co-founders have published a compendium of their collection. Featuring some of the best and most fascinating pieces in the collection, The Sketchbook Project World Tour offers a glimpse into the vibrant, flourishing community Steven and Shane have supported for nearly a decade. The book also features a foreword from Colossal Founder/Editor Christopher Jobson, who had the pleasure of curating a selection of the project’s sketchbooks in 2012.
About The Sketchbook Project
The Sketchbook Project began in 2006 in Atlanta, GA and moved to New York City in 2009. Since that time, the project has grown into a worldwide community of more than 70,000 artists. By focusing on the intersection of hands-on art making and new technology, The Sketchbook Project nurtures community-supported art projects that harness the power of the virtual world to share inspiration in the real world.
