About Mostly Nonsense

For over two years I've been posting weekly gag cartoons in a webcomic I call Sketchbook Silliness. A few cartoons have gone mildly viral and made the front page of sites like Imgur, 9gag, and Bored Panda. 

Most are just goofy nonsense though every once in a while I slip in something more thoughtful, usually about my Christian faith. Some of those have become my most widely-shared cartoons on social media. 

This book collects over 100 cartoons, plus bonus goofy doodles and silly tweets sprinkled throughout.

Here's a sample of my more popular cartoons:

 

 

Occasionally I post something more serious related to my Christian faith. This cartoon got shared over 15,000 times on Facebook and generated a lot of discussion:

My cartoons come in a variety of sizes so to fill up extra white space I'm also sprinkling in some bonus doodles and humorous tweets. Here's some sample layouts to show what I mean: 

 

By backing this project you can get all sorts of life-changing rewards:

New BONUS rewards for ALL backers!

If the project is successfully funded, all backers will also get these BONUS goodies:

  • A set of cartoon memes to help you tell someone Happy Birthday, Congratulations, etc. Great for sharing on Facebook or email.
  • Sketchercise! - A PDF with 120 of my warmup sketches and doodles. There aren'y any jokes but what it lacks in humor it makes up for in elbow grease.
  • Pose Drawing Sparkbook (Expanded Edition). A PDF designed to help artists put more life and personality into their drawings. Contains hundreds of drawing prompts and six mini-chapters on making your drawings more expressive and entertaining. A $15 value!
  • Two Months of Bonus Cartoons! Once every week or two I draw a bonus cartoons exclusively for my Patreon backers. You'll get those too!

I'm deeply grateful for any amount you can contribute to help make this project a reality.

PS — If you like my work you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube. You can also get exclusive backer-only cartoons and other goodies by backing me on Patreon.

Risks and challenges

The cartoons are mostly finished, I just need to assemble the pages and send them off to the printer. I'm planning to use a reputable local printer which will save time and cost. If things go smoothly I may even have the books printed and shipped to my USA backers in time for Christmas (I can't guarantee it but I'll try).

I've already completed one successful Kickstarter so I know more or less what to expect. I don't anticipate any problems but should anything unexpected arise I will be transparent and let everyone know immediately what the problem is and how I plan to deal with it.

If you have any questions, just let me know! http://www.cedricstudio.com/contact
