I’ve made a long “shortlist” of drawings that I could include in my drawings book. I’ve made a start re-scanning the drawings in high resolution especially for the book.
I’ve also figured out how to get the images almost (almost) actual size on the page of the book so you kind of have your own copy of my sketchbook pages.
I’m thinking an affordable book is better than a comprehensive book which could be over £30/$60. So as each drawing takes a page all to itself I need to be quite selective about what to include.
I also need to decide how to present them – chronologically/grouped/themed, with descriptions and background from me or not, including some comments from the blog or not. More text means less pictures, but drawings alone isn’t really enough.
Alternatively I could do a slimline affordable book with just a core selection of drawings and minimal text, and then a deluxe version with much more including new drawings and background text, comments and so on.
What would you like to see in the book?
In other news I’m also considering offering some of the drawings for sale. I have to figure out some practical aspects of that and get used to the idea of parting with some of them.
I’m anticipating many more weeks to get the work done but it will all get sorted :o)
