3rd & FINAL Stretch Goal!

We only have a few hours to hit our 3rd & FINAL stretch goal.  It's an 8 x 10 Korra print (still a work-in-progress).  I'm sure we can do it!  Any Korra fans out there?!

Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Evan Burse. Ever since I was a kid, I loved animation, comic books, anime, sci-fi...and of course action movies. That's why I started working in the animation business. I've worked on:
-Scooby-Doo
-Marvel's The Black Panther
-Batman Brave and the Bold

...and one of my personal favorites TEEN TITANS


But for the past 4 years, my big passion has been teaching people HOW TO DRAW some of their favorite characters on my YouTube channel, Cartoon Block.

Recently, I've gotten a lot of requests from people asking to see MORE of my drawings & personal sketches.  A lot of those drawings have been sitting in my sketchbooks…until NOW.

I've personally hand-picked my favorite (& not-so favorite) sketches, rough designs & doodles from my sketchbooks and put them together in an 8.5 x 11 inch HARDCOVER book called Cartoon Block Sketches Vol 1: The Art of Evan Burse.

This book will include some of my NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN drawings.

This book can also be used as a tool to see how I naturally build & create my drawings, as shown in these sketches below. 

You'll also see some familiar fan favorites (like Kid Goku & Death The Kid) from my YouTube channel, CartoonBlock.

Stretch Goals!

Here are the Reward Tiers!

Funding

I need to raise money to cover printing costs which is $4,000.  Plus overseas shipping fees which is $4,000.  Then an additional $1,500 for packaging materials & Kickstarter fees.  That brings the total to $9,500.  I hope to get this book into the hands of my supporters, artists & art enthusiasts everywhere.

I can't do this without YOUR help & support.  I appreciate you taking the time to look at my project and helping me make this dream come true. 

Risks and challenges

I've done a lot of research to help make this Kickstarter campaign as smooth and seamless as possible. With that said, all projects may have unexpected challenges.

I've created a schedule for production and delivery; however, depending on the volume of orders, dates may get pushed back slightly to fulfill the orders.
With the help of my wife, 4 children, and friends (and dog!), my hope is that the books will be in your hands by the deadline.

Shipping is the most complicated part of a Kickstarter campaign. Right before the books are ready to ship, I will send surveys to all the backers asking for your shipping information. Please make sure to include a permanent shipping address to avoid delivery issues. International customers please, please, please include the shipping amount in your pledge to get your package quickly and without hassle.
