For those of you who watch my twitter you’ve heard me asking around if anyone would like to do a sketchbook anthology.
why a sketchbook? well 1, everyone has sketches so I know it’ll be easy to get content 2, it’s cheap to print so cheap to sell while still spreading each other’s work and 3, because funny thing… I don’t sketch enough to fill a whole book each year. I usually carry my sketches to completion or they are just half doodles ment for reference and not for showing.
So, Here are some simple details.
- About 40-50 pages (so max 10 pages, min 2 pages)
- Anything BW, does not have to be sketches only, so short comics, ink works, ect is OK
- Book will be 6x9” in size how you format the pages is up to you (you could fit as many sketches onto a page as you want )
- I would hope to get 600dpi files but I’ll take 300dpi but no less.
- Due date APRIL
Some has asked if there is a theme. I don’t want to think of one on my own (not sure if having one is necessary) so I’m leaving open for us to chat over it. Maybe a comic projects theme? sketches of us planning/ design our comics? like character / background sketches? Maybe hand written notes on the side (legible, or get a digital handwriting style font) on what the sketches are about and a little blub artist bio?
Anyhow, If you’d like to be added to the list of artists either comment here (and follow the community) or send me a twit if you don’t have an LJ. final page count will be in march. Anyone who wants a book would just need to send an order of how many and pay their printing cost. You do not have to buy any copy even if you participate.
The quote I got from the printer:
“Interior: 1.5¢ a page B&W, 7¢ a page Color
Cover: $1 per cover, laminated, perfect bound
You book should be $1.75 each (50 pages)”
As you notice, color pages is really cheap too, so also thinking that each of us can do 1 color page (optional) as interior cover art for each section. The actial cover art will be any color character art we’d like and then have them together on the cover. (by the way, posters from this printer is really cheap so maybe you could order some from them at the same time too if you’d like)
All of this is changeable so lets get chatting =)
