Hi, everybody! Thanks for coming by!

I'm Anthony Holden, and I make drawings for fun and work. I hope we already know each other. If not, let's get social! You can find me in a bunch of places on the interwebs: tumblr, facebook, instagram, twitter, and elsewhere. If you poke around for a while on any of those sites, you'll have a pretty good idea of what I'm about and what's in this book.

SO. I've been doodling for a pretty long while now, and it's finally time to put some of these drawings in a book. Doodle Quest is a collection of selected black & white ink drawings of mine from the last several years. I hope you love it!

There are several reward tiers, detailed below, to entice adventurers to come join me on this journey. Rewards range from digital downloads to copies of the book, prints, and original art. Select the level that's right for you, and let's get to adventuring. Equip yourself, friends!

 The basics. Don't leave home without em.

 This is the bread and butter, so to speak.

NEW REWARD TIER!!

Add some JAM to your bread and butter

 Deluxe Rations adds a big 24"X36" fold out poster and an 8.5"x11" sticker sheet to your book. Why get just the book when you can have extra goodies to hang on the wall and paste all over your stuff?

 The poster is currently a work in progress.

 The sticker sheet is coming together, but will include at least the images below. Break dancers and sword dudes will party together!

 _______________________________________________________

***ALL REWARD TIERS $35 AND HIGHER WILL INCLUDE THE FOLD-OUT POSTER AND THE DELUXE STICKER SHEET***

 Wouldn't this look great on your wall at home? 

 Or this might look nice too!

 Better yet, put both prints beside each other! (Or in different rooms, if you live in a palace.)

Trusty Boots is a reward level specifically for international backers who want to save on shipping by ordering two copies of the book at a time. Buy two books (shipping included) for only $85 instead of $100. Hope this helps to lessen your burden, traveler. Plus traveling in pairs is safer, I'm told.

*UPDATE (17 Nov): add $10 to your pledge at the Trusty Boots level and receive TWO sticker sheets and TWO posters (one for each book).  Backers who do not add this $10 will not receive any stickers or posters.*

 Limited to the first 50 backers to snatch them up. See some examples of the drawing YOU might get HERE.

  Limited to the first 45 backers to claim them. See some examples of the drawing YOU might get HERE.

 You can scroll through the available original drawings in this handy facebook album!

 Let's talk about what you like! You've seen some of the stuff I draw, and you want to art direct me to make something cute or adventurous for you? Let's do it! (Limited to 10 backers. Get it quick!)

 I believe in sketchbooks! Keeping one is a great way to document all your observations and ideas (not to mention a handy way to track your EXP). The backer that gets a hold of  this book will receive an encouraging message and a personalized doodle. I hope you have as much fun filling its pages as I did drawing in its matching brother!

I've only got one--a truly rare item.

Many and profound thanks to my pals Richard Williams and Corbin Sterling for providing the amazing soundtrack and sound design for the pitch video.

Risks and challenges

Doodle Quest is a passion project. I'm excited to get these books, prints, and other goodies in your hands!

However, there are going to be a lot of obstacles to overcome between now and then. And probably some boss battles. With your help, things will go smoothly. Let's keep in touch about where you are so I can get you your rewards as quickly as possible. Remember, we're on this quest together, so we have to work as a team!

I anticipate little bumps along the way--after all, we ARE on an adventure. I'll be working closely with commercial printers and shipping companies (and other NPCs) to get you your rewards in a timely manner. If and when any hiccups come our way, I'll be totally up front with pertinent information so you can have the best idea about when you'll be getting your stuff!

Ready? Grab your satchel, bedroll, lute, and sword, and let's go!
