The Illustration & Design World of Zach Johnsen

I'm supercharged in announcing that I have received advance copies of Sketchbook today! That means the books are finished! They are now in the process of being packaged, crated and shipped... so the wait for full delivery is a matter of days..

I'm amazed at how fast this has all come together. I conceived the idea of Sketchbook years ago... It has been in the back of my mind since I moved to Portland 7 years ago and it wasn't until 2015, this year, that with the help of Kickstarter, I was able to finally pull the trigger on it! I launched my Kickstarter campaign at the beginning of february, it was funded by March, I had proofs by April and with any luck the final delivery of books by the end of May! Just like that, an idea that's been stewing for years has materialized in just 4 short months.

I expect the full delivery of books will happen in 2 weeks, at which time I will make them available in my shop.. Those of you who missed the Kickstarter campaign, will have your chance to get one very soon!

SKETCHBOOK PROOFMonday, April 27, 2015
I received in the mail a proof of SKETCHBOOK today. Included is treatment for the front and back covers as well as the spine, belly band art and body copy of the book.  I'm happy to say everything is looking great and with some minor last changes will be approving this badboy for final production!
