PRESS RELEASE: 45 Days, $10,000, 1 Print Issue

Sketchbook Magazine Launches Fundraising Campaign for Print Issue!

Following our exciting re-launch as a digital magazine last month, Sketchbook is already on the move towards bigger and better things. We want to give you – our wonderful readers – something new! Something to hold and pages to turn.  That’s why we need your support to raise a total of $10,000 to fund our very first print run.

We’ve launched an online fundraising campaign on crowd funding website indiegogo (similar to Kickstarter). We have just 45 days to reach our target of $10,000 – but the good news is if we meet it, we get to keep all funds raised.

We are itching to take Sketchbook to the next level by producing a beautiful quarterly print issue alongside our dynamic online magazine and with your support we can achieve that goal. Become a part of Sketchbook history by contributing to our campaign and we will be eternally grateful.

All supporters will be recognised as members of the Sketchbook family and will have access to a variety of perks (see below). Until we will continue to do what we do best; provide a unique platform for established and emerging creative talents in illustration, art, and design.
