About

Dragons!

Big dragons, small dragons, baby dragons, lady dragons, brute dragons, smart dragons - ALL THE DRAGONS!

In case you're wondering - I have drawn for Inktober every year since 2017. But instead of going on the "official prompt" list, I pick a theme and stick with it. In 2017, it was Witches. In 2018, it was Gods & Spirits.

This year? It's DRAGONS!

I have an entire month's worth of dragon sketches that I want to compile into an art book. And that is what this KickStarter is helping to fund.

With the asking goal, the following expenses will be covered:

  • $100 for printing 20 copies of the book
  • $35 for the set-up fee with the printer
  • $150 for the ISBN and Barcode
  • $120 for shipping
  • $100 for KickStarter's fees and an emergency fund (just in case something goes wrong)

That's the bare minimum needed to make this book happen. If we reach beyond that, here's what I have in mind:

  • $575 - a baby dragon sticker sheet for backers who get physical copies of the book.
  • $670 - a KickStarter-exclusive miniprint of Norsa the Albino Dragon, shipped with physical copies of the book.
  • $??? The Sky's the limit!

If you can pledge any amount to make this project happen, that's MARVELOUS!

If you're broke, please share this campaign with your friends. Every share helps more than you know.

Thank you so much for checking out this KickStarter!

You. Are. Awesome.

Risks and challenges

"So why are you doing a KickStarter for a project you haven't finished yet?"

Well, my track record of 9 successful KickStarter campaigns has proven that I can finish a project I start. (And 2 of those KickStarters were for Sketchbooks similar to Dragons: A Sketchbook.) So Dragons: A Sketchbook WILL be done. Likely, before the KickStarter closes.

Obviously, having run 9 successful campaigns before, I know what risks and challenges there are - things like cancelled pledges, late shipping from the printer, misprints, packages lost in the mail, etc. That said, I know what I'm doing and how to handle these crises. And if you're not happy with it, my inbox is always open.
