Well my Sketchbook campaign is officially funded.  Kickstarter delivered the funds into my account this week and I am poised to deliver the final book layout to the manufacturer next week!  It has been really fun pouring through old sketch material from years back and recontextualizing it amongst newer sketch material.  Sketchbook has really been a reflection on the last several years.. a reflection of past lives lived and past projects embarked upon.  It's been fun to see how my drawing style has evolved as well.

SKETCHBOOK FUNDED!Friday, March 13, 2015
My kickstarter campaign has come to a close and Sketchbook is officially funded!

In review, I was originally aiming for $11,500 which I reached in about 2 weeks. Wanting to capitalize on the hype behind the project, I decided to shoot for a stretch goal of $13,500 to introduce a few color signatures to Sketchbook. That was quickly met over the next week. After that, I decided to really shoot for it with a super stretch goal of $18,000 to go full color with Sketchbook and that was achieved today before the closing bell.

I would like to give a HUMONGOUS THANK YOU to each and every one of my 251 backers who helped me raise $18,458 in total to publish Sketchbook! Sketchbook is going to happen and it is going to happen bigger and better than I could have thought possible. THANK YOU!

Over the coming week, after I figure out how Kickstarter sorts all the pledges and gathers addresses and information, I will be in touch to figure out who is getting what and how. In the meantime, I need to finish up the layout now that I have color to work with!

Less than 48 hours left of my Sketchbook Kickstarter campaign! I am shooting for a stretch goal of $18,000 before 3pm on wednesday for Sketchbook to go full color!  I am getting very close and I can't tell you how excited I am to see such an outpouring of love and support for my work and for Sketchbook!  I'm so pumped.. Thank you all!  

But I am not out of the woods yet.. I still have a ways to go.  Those of you out there who are psyched on this project and have been waiting to pledge, now is the time! Pledge $25 plus shipping and you will get a book, what a swinging deal.  And be aware, that because Sketchbook is now going color, the price will not be this cheap again.  Show your support and at the same time get yourself a good deal on one cool ass book!
