Daydreams and Wanderings - A Book of Sketches

$1,471

42

The Book

Daydreams & Wanderings is a 6x9 inch perfect bound, trade paperback book, containing a collection of my drawings and sketches (traditional and digital) from the last two years. It is a book of ideas, thoughts and visions. 

Some of the sketches were created out of curiosity and the love for drawing; while others, were the first steps toward a painting. Themes in my sketchbook include nature, fantasy and myth--a few of the things I love most.

My goal is to have a limited run book I can sell online and at conventions. All the books will be signed and numbered.

The Costs

My sketchbook is not a simple, softcover book. It's like a trade paperback you'd buy in a bookstore. Though it is only 42 pages, it will have a small spine! The pages will be 100% color, printed on high quality acid free #70 paper.The cover will be full color too and laminated. I'd like to print 150-200 books.

I could have gone with less expensive options, but I wanted my sketchbook to be its own work of art, a collectible item. Printing, packaging and shipping is going cost $1300. International backers will have $10 added for shipping.

Stretch Goals?

Yes! If we get there I'll have more details, but here's the basics:

If the campaign surpasses the goal, even by only $5, all the backers who pledged $15 or more will receive bookmarks along with their reward.

If the campaign reaches $2000 all the backers who pledged $15 or more will receive an 8x10 inch print of my painting Heart of the Forest.

Risks and challenges

I'm very confident in the printer I've chosen for the book and as I said in the video, the book is finished. The only potential obstacles I foresee are out of my control, i.e. printer malfunctions, slow delivery, etc. But if those things happen I'll be on top of it, working to get problems solved and I'll be keeping my backers in loop the entire way!
