Doug TenNapel Sketchbook vol. 2 is a hard bound collection of my work behind the work! This is how I make my sausage.

Doug in front of the commissions from volume 1, the best of these will be printed in Volume 2.
Doug in front of the commissions from volume 1, the best of these will be printed in Volume 2.

This campaign is a follow up to the successful funding, creation and mailing of the Sketchbook Archives vol. 1

Why make another volume? This new book is not a mere copycat of the first, in that it has a slightly different interior format. The TenNapel Sketchbook Archives Volume 2 will be not only at least 230 pages of sketches that didn't make it into volume 1, but my complete notes on story writing and pitching for television. There will be a section of the book dedicated to commission requests made by previous Kickstarter donors...some were just too good not to print! I'll also throw in my ARMIKROG game designs and sketches which become the blueprint for the game, as well as my sketches and inked pages from my unfinished book Hixon Bragg and from my 2015 Nnewts books for Scholastic.

In addition to all of this, Mike Dietz (my animation guru) will write the forward to this edition!

Thanks to stretch goals, Volume 1 featured gold stamped, ribbed, leather cover with gold gilded edges and a ribbon bookmark. Only you can make Vol. 2 this handsome!

When I launched my first Kickstarter ever I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical. But after doing that campaign and hearing fantastic positive feedback I became a Kickstarter believer! The results of the last campaign was a book that no publisher would have green lit, but I consider it one of the best projects I've ever been involved with that produced the highest quality result.

 I have a lot of confidence in my donors and in our combined ability to make another great book! Who knows? I might just have to top that cannon ball I did in the last campaign with an even stupider stunt... something I look forward to given my appreciation for the donors.

The Earthworm Jim and Klaymen prints will be in color and only available to Kickstarter donors. These aren't final designs, just a sample of the kinds of things I make in color.

I can only thank you all in advance for your help on the last campaign, and for being super patient with some of the shortcomings of that campaign I hope to remedy on this one.

Add-Ons

To receive an Add-On, pledge the additional amount of the item (or items) to your tier. Once the campaign has ended, you’ll receive a survey where you can specify the Add-On you have chosen.

Digital Add-Ons for any Tier $15 and up

+ $10 - Maximum Rez versions of the Sketchbook Archives Volume 1 and 2 with a license to print ONE COPY of each book so you can make your own book! You can do anything you want with these books.

+$10 - Harry Fiasco Pitch Document PDF! for my show that Disney picked up... then got canned! This is a great way for you to see an actual pitch I regularly bring to the studios... how many images? How much text? Donate another ten bucks to find out how I do it! This is a must see for anyone interested in animated series development, and unlike many other teaching materials on the subject, this one actually got picked up by the studio. This pitch doc will have my usual materials of a minimum of 5 images and a minimum of 5 pages of writing. See cover image below:

+ $10 add on one Digital Director's Audio Commentary of BOTH books! This is an Mp3 or some-such file where Doug TenNapel goes page by page through the Sketchbook Archives Volume 1 and 2. He'll explain where it all came from, what it all means, what art supplies were used and will read all of the text! 

Physical Add-Ons for $30 Tier and Above

(These Add-Ons are available only to backers that have pledged to tiers $30 or higher)

+ $10 add on one ORIGINAL piece of CATSCRATCH animation production art signed by Doug TenNapel! Do I like signing other people's work? No I don't, but I'm willing to sign these because I'm told it's how it's done. These were the actual animation drawings that were shot in the production of Catscratch, which was animated by Rough Draft in Korea. These are great additions to any animation collector, they're one of a kind, hand made drawings and I'll stick one in your book! I do have to fold these because the book is 8.5 X 11" while the animation art is so big. (see sample below) 

+ $15 add on one ARMIKROG's TOMMYNAUT limited edition print signed by Doug TenNapel (all prints in the reward tiers will already be signed by Doug T).

+ $15 add on one EARTHWORM JIM limited edition print signed by Doug TenNapel (all prints in the reward tiers will already be signed by Doug T).

+ $15 add on one KLAYMEN limited edition print signed by Doug TenNapel (all prints in the reward tiers will already be signed by Doug T).

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Shipping cost has been my only risk on these projects. Guessing what commissions will cost, in addition to the weight of the book can make the difference between successfully charging for fees or losing a lot of donations for opening up shipping to the world. But I've learned a lot from my first Sketchbook Archives Kickstarter and feel like I know what I'm doing now... for the most part.
