I'm curious to know why you think your sketch-a-day work is of the quality to deserve a book -- what has really has improved from January 1 until today to show a progression in quality or technique? I appreciate the willpower to keep this up but does it deserve distribution? The possibility that we can all self-publish doesn't mean we should.
Like others have posted, the question (although blunt) is valid - And the answer is extremely subjective as there are so many individual opinions and none are absolute. For me i look at it as a book that will be used within my house (i still love print vs digital)
1. Sketch ref material (i have 2 shelves devoted to this)(and 1/2 a Terra byte drive) and am always looking for different styles that i can use / teach / ref
2. An example not only for me but my sons's of dedication and effort to a goal - even though on some days im sure you really don't want to do it
3. Just the fun of turning it into a book and the enjoyment
4. A chance to make some money for doing something that was fun
Im sure there are many more points other may have - some positive and some negative - This is one of those situation where some on says "why do it?" and my immediate response would be "Why not?"
