Oh, Shit!...it's Glenn Fabry's Kickstarter!

Hello! I'm Glenn Fabry and welcome to my Kickstarter Project! This will be my first Kickstarter and the the 3rd Sketchbook I have created, compiled of commissions and unpublished work. This book will have 64 pages minimum and a minimum of 40 pages full color!

Images in this sketchbook will include many previously unpublished Preacher, Hellblazer, Batman, Sandman, Slaine, Marvel, DC and horror images, there is even a sketch of Alan Moore in there! Also this time uniquely and thanks to the wonderful medium of Kickstarter I will have the chance to collaborate with you as the commissions you can make via the rewards will also be included in Sketchbook 3!

My overall goal is to one day make a giant art book with my own work and ideas inside. This all unfortunately takes quite a long time and a lot of effort. I cannot do it on my own I need help from you guys!! Money from this campaign will go towards producing this 3rd Sketchbook, hopefully full of your great pledged commissions. It will also buy me some breathing room to finish my current project "Mute" written by Director of "Moon" and other great movies, Duncan Jones. It's a brilliant project, I can't wait to  get it done and just want to finish it to the best standard I can.

If my goal is surpassed I will set new milestones and stretch goals based around getting me some time in the studio where I can start work for myself for the first time in my career! Constant bills and constant work for other companies under deadline has always stopped me being able to create what I want and I think this also damages the quality...I'm BIG into detail as anyone following my career would know and I've also decided I'm too old to hack stuff out any more!

Ahhhhh!...Finally I might be able to create work at a standard I will be happy with and hopefully you will be too!

Commission and Stretch Rewards:

All paid for reward commissions will come first, as the major priority and will be published to Sketchbook 3. This will be printed and distributed in two shakes of a lambs tail, maybe three depending on unpredictable "acts of God(ess)" or environmental factors such freak tornados or the "El Niño" effect.  

Sketchbooks with requested sketches (done on the specially designated inside blank page) will come second on the to do list. Some of theses (the really unusual ones) will be scanned and published in Sketchbook 4!...yes, we forsee a Sketchbook 4!

Your commission or sketch can include a dedication which you should also include initially.

We will contact you for details on your commission or sketch.

Commissions: After your initial response to our request for details (remember, be specific about what you want) I will provide you with three thumbnails to choose from. After that you will also be allowed to make an alteration to the thumbnails before the commission will proceed.

Sketchbook Pictures: Remember to think carefully when specifying what you want as clearly as you can when we contact you. I won't be making alterations...I ain't got all day ya know!

Commissions can be anything from a basic Batman or other popular (or unpopular) character to something fantastical invented completely from your own brain!

Top Ten Things I've Been Asked to Draw for Money:

1. Zombie Bob Marley on horseback impaling a dragon with a ten foot reefer.

2. Ganesh on a skateboard.

3. Batman kissing Superman.

4. Fifty pictures of hands holding drumsticks.

5. Myself committing suicide.

6. A painting of someone's dog coming back to life.

7. Tommy Cooper as a vicar marrying two people.

8. Caricature of some guy for his 21st birthday with his foot on an elephant he'd killed (in fantasy) with an air rifle.

9. Chew baca in wrestling costume.

10. Pictures of naked women to avoid getting hit at school - not money exactly but useful all the same.

About Glenn Fabry:

I've been a comic strip artist fo over 30 years now, starting off with some stuff for the Stranglers (British Punk Rock Group), then went on to 2000AD where all the Brits in comics started at one time or another. I used to draw and paint the characters Slaine and Judge Dredd and ended up working for DC and Marvel doing mostly cover art. I'm well known for my cover work on things like Preacher and Hellblazer, picking up some some award nominations and wins along the way. I have collaborated with publisher and agents Berserker for many years taking on a varied and often bizzare range of commissions. I'm working on "Mute" and contemplating my future with writer and best friend Alan Mitchel as we join forces to write the greatest story ever told. See more on me and my art on my website!

Risks and challenges

Luckily the majority of Sketchbook 3 has been completed already and is just awaiting the addition of your commissions. I have printers set up in advance through the reliable lines of Berserker who my first two Sketchbooks were published by.
The only other project I'm currently committed to working on is "Mute" with movie maker Duncan Jones. This project does take up a lot of my time (re my commitment to detail!) but I expect everything to ship punctually and will do everything possible to make sure this happens. The only thing that may have a slight delay will be the pledges for original sketched versions of Sketchbook 3 as I have to wait until it is actually printed before starting on them (who knows with any luck I might have to do stacks of these to do)!
