Sketch & Draw

Group Project: An Endless Book

natalie-2Natalie Ratkovski, a favorite illustrator and sketcher, oversees “An Endless Book,” her inspired group project for 2014.  It calls for one newly illustrated page/spread a week with the pages continued seamlessly so the illustration never stops.  (Click on images for each participant’s original posts)




Each book – which can be digital, collage, or  paper – is based on a central concept that the artist works through for the year. All above:  Natalie Ratkovski

  • This group (which you can join) is immensely creative, and encourages progress shots such as preliminary sketches.  Here are excerpts from some of the books. (Click image for more from each artist)

Ratkovski is a talented illustrator, sketch artist and graphic designer based in Germany.

    • I don’t know if you realized, but quite a few of the participants in the Endless Book do their work online or digitally. Not all of them draw freehand. Thanks for your comment.


    • I know, very enticing, isn’t it. But still inspirational even if the drawing skills aren’t there. Proves how creative it’s possible to be, just maybe somewhere else, I always think.
