Hey everyone. I've been working on this sketch-a-day project for 2017, chronicling my journey to do a concept sketch every single day for 2017. I'm up to sketch 150. My goal is to have book of the sketches published at the end of the year.

Here is the problem, I have no idea how to actually do that! So if any of you have information or experience on how to go about that, or maybe have contacts to a publisher or agent, I'd love any help I can get. Leave them in the comments below or direct message me through my contact page here: http://michaelditullo.com/contact.html

I'd also love to hear any requests you might have for sketch topics to see in the book!

I've done some research on self publishing in the past, mainly for graphic novel type publications, it somehow depends on what you want as the end result(paper, cover, layout, etc) the other road, approaching a publisher I think you have more experience or can follow someone else's recommendation.

Some of the popular choices for self-publishing you might want to check out:

- Createspace : Paper quality is not very good,sizes are somehow constrained but cost is low and you have amazon distribution baked in, it has a learning curve.

- Print Ninja : High quality hardcovers/papers offset printed, but you have to distribute it yourself.

- Blurb : Like a mix of the above, end to end publishing, not sure about caveats, but looks good.

- Lulu: A bit outdated, but might suit your needs.

Good Luck !

Yo,

I was hired by a wealthy, prominent businessman who wanted his family and historical documents published into a book. Through my research, and from his needs, Blurb through the Bookwright Software was the best option. It allowed us to create a book for multiple platforms, physical and digital, and the printing quality was professional. It was incredibly simple and the book ended up receiving far-reaching costumers.

I think you have an excellent idea, and would love to purchase a book of your sketches & thoughts.

Thanks everyone for the info and feedback. I appreciate it. I used Blurb for my first book: http://www.blurb.com/b/1166889-analog-dreams

It is a little expensive per unit but I was happy with the quality. I was told to look into the amazon self publishing platform as well. I've heard from a lot of friends that the traditional publishing route isn't what it seams.

Some recent sketches from my workshop yesterday at UIC.

This one started out as a doodle in my sketchbook, a quick snap with my iPad and I refining it digitally in no time.
