The Joy of Drawing. This book is really a celebration of drawing. It’s a delighting IN and an enjoyment OF the very act of drawing. That’s why it’s titled The Joy of Drawing. I’m a firm believer that if we draw things with joy and passion they become infused with joy and life and the drawings that moved me will move the viewer as well and hopefully inspire others to push in and draw to the next level. People have told me that these bleu line drawings have inspired them to draw and that’s a huge encouragement.
I also know how stinkin' cool it is to see really large images on a page so I have designed the book to give the reader tons of eye candy. I have also filled the book with wisdom and insights as to how I think and create. Topics include Angles and Observations, Perfection, Exaggeration, Asymmetry, the 10,000 hour rule, Blind Contour Not Really concept and many others. It’s ultimately 72 pages of pure drawing hedonism.
Thank you for your consideration and support.~T

Here’s how it works. If we hit our goal of $25,000, backers will vote on one of these four images. Majority rules. Backers will receive an exclusive signed 8.5x11 print of the image with the most votes. Applies to $25 reward level and above.
Here are the goods!
I’m super pumped to share these rewards with you. A few things to note…
I am sharing my original studio sketches/doodles exclusively in the various Reward Tiers because it is the best way I can say “thank you” for supporting this project. For me, there is nothing cooler than an original sketch or doodle. It’s hard to put a price on an original sketch/doodle, but I usually sell mine for up to $300. For the duration of this campaign ONLY, I am excited to offer them to you!
Risks and challenges
Since this is my first Kickstarter I'm not sure what to fully expect but I have been seeking counsel from some of my rockstar friends who have conducted fully-funded campaigns and they have helped me think through some problematic areas. I'm also working with my favorite designer, assembling the pages with her and it's coming along nicely. I worked with this printer on my last book and they are solid and totally reliable, especially when it comes to deadlines and extremely fast turnarounds. Their work is top quality. The book will be ready soon after the campaign ends. One thing to note -- some of the rewards will take some time for me to complete, so please be patient while I try to finish them in a timely manner. Thanks! I'm super pumped to do this thing with you!~TLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
