My name is Chris Piascik, I’m an illustrator. 10 years ago I started a daily drawing project with no goal in mind aside from drawing more. I committed to posting them online as a way of tricking myself into keeping up with it. I figured if I told the internet I was doing it I’d have no choice!

Over the past decade these drawings have transformed and directed my career and life. They’ve helped me transition from a designer with a day job to an independent illustrator. I still can’t believe that’s real! To celebrate these past 10 year’s worth of daily drawings I am going to make a book featuring my favorites.

The book will be about 100 pages and include drawings ranging from 2007 through 2017. I’ve remastered a bunch of the old ones, and there will be a few other surprises including illustrations by some awesome friends.

This book wouldn’t be a good fit for a regular publisher so I’m using Kickstarter to help produce it. This book is deeply personal and I want full control over it. So that’s where you come in! By preordering a copy of my book, or backing the project via a whole slew of reward options you can make this happen (THIS BEING ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS).

The money will go towards the production of this book, as you can imagine it’s expensive and very time consuming. That said, I’ve set the goal low, just to cover the costs associated with an initial batch of books. If we go over that goal, boy howdy would that be nice. As a self-employed illustrator it’s hard to fit everything in. Bypassing the goal will provide a cushion to allow me to cut back on some client work and focus on this book—and thus finish faster!

Let’s talk about rewards! You can back this campaign in a number of ways from tiny baby dollars to big boy dollars and there’s rewards to match! The main event is the book, so there’s a number of ways to get that. Rewards range from; stickers, patches, and pins, to copies of my previous books, other books, prints, custom drawings, and other stuff I may add through the campaign.

IF I DON’T REACH MY GOAL, NOBODY (INCLUDING ME) GETS ANYTHING. IT WILL BE AS IF THIS NEVER HAPPENED AND I WILL LIKELY GO INTO HIDING. 

THANK YOU!

 These are the patches and enamel pins included in the "Flair" reward option!

These are the coloring books included in the "Coloring Books" reward option!

This is a page from my previous book, "Another 1000 Days of Drawing" listing all of the Kickstarter backers that opted for the hand-lettered name reward tier!

Did I mention the book will include some bonus illustrations by some of the raddest designers and illustrators I know? Let me name drop for a second: Danny Pelavin, Jen Mussari, Josh LaFayette, Lee Crutchley, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Andy J Miller... AND THAT'S JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. I'll share more as the campaign progresses.

 Oh, hi, are you still reading this? Thanks! Speaking of thanks, thank you Josh Lafayette for the song!

 Here's an image of the limited edition print listed in the Rewards. This will be 11"x14" and will be a 4-color Risograph print, printed by the fine folks at Risolve Studio!

UPDATE: 01/27/2018

I just added these mini-print packs to the rewards options! You can choose any 5 dailies to be included with each pack.

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

I don’t anticipate too many risks or challenges as this will be the third book I’ve self published. That said, production delays do happen sometimes. If that happens I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated (along with any other delays that may happen along the way).
