Hi. My name is Steve Rude and for those of you who don’t know me I’m a comic book artist best known for my comic, Nexus. I started in comcs in 1981 and have won every major industry award.
Every year I do a sketchbook and this year I’d like to add even more pages and make it full color. That’s where you guys come in. For 2013 we’re adding in pages from my sketchbook, original fine art paintings, and other commissions done over the past year. For everyone who preorders we’re offering an exclusive print of some of my favorite commissions.
This year our goal is $10,000 which covers the cost of printing and shipping this extraordinary sketchbook plus replaces our old scanner which went out earlier this year. Our sketchbooks are professionally printed and checked for color accuracy.
All copies of the sketchbook will be signed (except unsigned version). If you haven’t picked up past year sketchbooks we are offering these books at a discount along with digital versions. We even have an original painting for sale!
Also being offered is a nifty opportunity for someone to fly to Arizona for a private weekend art lesson with the Dude! Guaranteed to be worth every cent or your money back.
So spread the word. Like us on Facebook and tweet away. If we don’t make our goal, we don’t make our sketchbook.
NEW BACKER EXCLUSIVE LOOK INTO STEVE'S SKETCHBOOK
Shown here is an example of a page that will be shown exclusively to backers. Steve's sketchbooks contain a wealth of information, ideas and art. The more money we raise, the more pages will be released and the more that we are able to print in the 2013 Sketchbook!
New sketches for sale for every $2,000 in pledges or 500 backers. Backers will receive an exclusive peek of the new sketch and be the first notified when it is avaialble for sale!

Risks and challenges
This will be our 9th sketchbooks and though I'd like to think we have most of the kinks worked out there's always something that comes up! We utilize Shipstation online to organize and automate email notifications. We have our printer lined up, a professional designer on board this year, and having funds will allow us to proceed with the printing without delays!
We give regular updates and special behind the scenes progress information and images including a sneak preview of the pdf going to everyone before the book even goes to the printer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
