Sketchbook 2013 Release Date

Hi Guys!
I am going to be releasing Sketchbook 2013: The Four Dwarves on Tuesday, September the 10th, at 11am EST!

I am doing something a little different this year. In past years I have done the first 50 order recieve a hand-drawn image on the front page.  For previous years results check out:
2010 Re-release

This has been a lot of fun, but a little chaotic. So, this year, I am experimenting with something new and am going to be offering 2 separate books.

The Standard Edition and The Deluxe Limited Edition.
That's right, Deluxe.

The Standard Edition will arrive hand-signed and is $20. Much like the normal order from previous years.

The Deluxe Limited Edition will arrive, hand-signed, individually numbered (1-50) and with a bookmark. The Deluxe Edition will be $40.  This one is limited to only 50, and once they are gone they are gone.

Also, this is going to be available online for a limited time only:

Tuesday, September 10th through Tuesday, October 15th. 

I will also be offering 8"x10" signed prints this year of a number of my images. (More on this soon)  So get your Christmas shopping done early! It all ends October 15th!
