Traveling art is quite literally, traveling art. Artist mail sketchbooks to other artists in a different parts of the world. The recipient artist then does a piece in the book and passes it along to another artist and then the process repeats itself over and over.
These traveling art sketchbooks are released with hopes of going "viral." Thus, traveling art books can also be considered real-life social media, as they connect global artists on a single platform.
Some traveling art has gone over 60,000 kilometers under 4 years and garnered over 400 pages of art from around the world.
Some great examples are Sketchtravel, The Traveling Sketchbook, and the Traveling Sketchbook Project.
