Sketchtravel

I'm very lucky and honored to have been invited to contribute to the Sketchtravel book. Sketchtravel is the brainchild of Gérald Guerlais and Daisuke Tsutsumi, it's a sketchbook thats passed by hand from artist to artist across the world. Once it's finished It'll be sold in a benefit auction and published as well.

I finished my page almost two weeks ago. I'm not allowed to show the whole thing so here's a small detail to whet your appetites.



I was also privileged with the honor of handing off the book to the amazing Carter Goodrich of New Yorker fame.
I nerded out over that one.
