I read about this story tonight and I had an instant epiphany: how cool would it be to see this done by all the incredible artists who are on Google+?
I started adding artists into my circle from Day One and more than a few have become my best friends here. The artistic talent that we see on Google+ is found all over the world and it hit me: I could invite artists in countries of every corner of the Globe to contribute to this project. I'll need some help from you all to identify all the artists we all think should be a part of the Project. We'll need an anchor artist to start things off (volunteers?) and we'll need to map out the journey of the book. I'll set up a PAGE to follow their progress as we see this book travel all over the world. We can even set up a Kickstarter campaign down the road to have printed copies of this book available to all!
I envision this as a long-term, cool effort involving many people, and I'd like to see writers and musicians involved as well! So, I'm starting things off with many artists that I can remember, and I'd like your help as well: tell your friends, plustag as many artists as you know, and let's see if we can get this off the ground!
The Impetus for the Book Project:
For 36 weeks in 04, myself and three other artists sent a sketchbook back and forth across the Atlantic between us, each artist responding to the spread that proceeded them. When it was finished, book had traveled over 60,000 miles.
