There will be but not available in the store.. because the quantity will be so limited.. its too expensive of an experiment to make a large print run and then have em sit on the shelf. I'm thinking like 5-6 books to test the waters and then greater quantities if the demand is there.

That makes me think...we can have a reserve spot for next year when you decide to start sketchbook tour '09?

If anything I would wait years down the line to sell a Ng Sketchbook tour art book. By that time the tour would be well known and have lots more to put in a book.


If you're not reading Twisted Comix what is your life about?

I'm published on NG! Buy "One Shot"!

Well right now.. i think it would actually make MORE sense to invest in hardcover version than shirts. I may put the shirts on hold for a bit. Dunno yet. ok im off to scanland!

For the fifth Sketchbook Tour, you should convince Newgrounds to publish a paperback Sketchbook Tour book for the store featuring all the pages from the five tours, and maybe some commentary and project history. Maybe this is putting too much into this tour, but it feels like an important part of the Newgrounds community worth commemorating.

I wonder if we would profit from this lmao. Nonetheless i agree with kupah. Depends on how much you feel like puttin your back in to it.

If you do make copies of the sketchbook will those who send in something get a free copy or will we have to pay for them like everyone else?

ALSO, even if we have to pay, I'd be cool if we got personalized copies!!! THAT'D BE AWESOME!!!

I'd say we most likely have to pay because well all that time and effort to make several hunderd sketchbooks for a bunch of people and then giving away 100 of those sketchbook for free because someone created one page of an 100+ page sketchbook. Would result in the loss of money, I would say we would need to pay like 20 or 25 dollars for the sketchbook if they were going to produce multiple sketchbook books.

Something you might wanna check out, Luis:

www.comixpress.com

The setup fee would be around $36 for a 110 page, all color paperback, perfect bound book, it includes a proof copy.

Yeah it's paperback but.......

All subsequent copies are $11.62, and are printed singley on demand. Meaning fellow NG'ers can order a copy for themselves if desire, right off the site. You don't have to have a surplus waiting in the wings. The Newgrounds store could even link right up to the "NG sketchbook Tour '08" comixpress page and sell them from there, then the comixpress will ship them directly to the buyer's door.

It's very cheap, risk free and very plausible. It allows everyone who wants one to purchase one.

Here is the page estimates on printing prices Estimates

Just looking in to see what's up. :3

I've heard a lot of good stuff about www.lulu.com, and they'll do hardcover. Amazon has a print-on-demand service too.

It'll be worth it though, one thing i didnt like about the first sketchbook tour is that after alot of handling the book has started to fall apart over at the office. This time around i'll keep the original and ill just have hardbound versions of it available in very limited quantity. Which is part of the reason its taking so long to scan these. I have to do em at 300dpi so it prints well. my guess is if i can be very responsible and scan 10 a day i should be close to wrapping up the scanning aspect by next weekend.

Dear lord, next time ask those who can to scan it for you before they send it and to upload them to the web.

A 300dpi PDF / JPEG zipped wouldn't even be that bad.

Yeah, I'm sure a good percentage of artists on Newgrounds have scanners already, so asking participants to do that part of the process if they can next year would relieve a lot of the workload.

But I think Luis does it on purpose so that we know how much he suffers for us.
