Dan Duncan's new Sketch Book by dan-duncan Dan Duncan's new Sketch Book by dan-duncan
Over the last five years or so I worked really hard to get paid to draw all the time.  A couple years ago I finally got there.  But I've always wanted to collect all those misfit drawings that never had a home.  

Thats more or less what this is.  There is also a ton of work from my first two big jobs.  So there is a lot of TMNT stuff you've never seen as well as my first crack at boarding on Ultimate Spider-Man.  In addition to that is about 40 or 50 pages of short stories in glorious comics form!  But more importantly than that I wanted to try and give this book some value to people who are currently were I was just a short time ago.  I failed many, MANY times trying to break in, but I learned a few things along the way that really worked for me.  The kind of things I didn't really hear from other pro's when I asked for advice.  So I put those things (about school, technique, sketching, working for free etc.) right in here.

I put the whole book together and went through LULU.  This is probably the coolest thing I've done in awhile and I'm loath to compliment my work at all.  My goal is to sell 100 copies so if you pick this up and you like it (or if you're not gonna pick it up but still want to help a guy accomplish a goal) Spread the word!

Its 180 B/W pages for $20 and you can order it [link]

Dude! This book is so insanely sick!! Love it!! Obviously, I bought it for the turtles stuff (BIG, BIG FAN) and the tid-bits of wisdom from you doing time at the Kubert school and from battling your way to pro status, and the self portrait with the samurai sword cover definitely just sold the whole package for me, but now that I have it in my hands and am flipping through, the sketches inside are flippin' fantastic!! It's amazing to me how you can make skin look so wrinkly! The Phantom pains girl is Great, and the grays in the #51 are insane. The black & whites are just gorgeous man, on everything, they really pop. The car scene page you somewhere in the middle, followed by the splash page with the girl on her back shooting the dude, is beautiful. I love her facial expressions in the car. I love all the brush work too, it's so expressive! And I especially dig the comics in the back, I think 'Stand For This' and 'The Deserter' are my favorites. The book is, truly, truly inspirational... I love all the Art!!! Thanks so much for sharing this! Sorry for the long rant.
