Sure. $25-50 depending on the amount of content.
I was playing with the idea of releasing a sort of book/sketchbook with my good friend James Eatock, collecting all the art I've created for various cartoon DVD packagings
It's something I was thinking about for some time, but not sure how many people would actually be interested in purchasing something like that.
My idea would be to include all the covers I did, (not just MOTU, but also Real Ghostbusters, Transformers and all the Filmation stuff), all the art uncropped, layouts, sketches etc.
My questions would be: would do you buy it?
And if yes, how much would you spend on this (please, be realistic, even with the cheaper printing, it can't be 10 bucks).
What else would you like to see inside?
Thanks in advance for the feedback!
Sure. $25-50 depending on the amount of content.
Yes, yes, YES!!!
Probably 30 to 40 bucks. The only recent related-type book I can think of is Sesame Street's 40th Anniversay book. I think it was 40 dollars or so, lots of full-color photographs and artwork, along with a TON of info.
Oh man, I hope you're able to do this!
I'd hope the page-wise content would be over 30 pages. Even if you have one page a sketch and page next to it description about it.
All information available that went into making the layouts, preliminary sketches and ajdustments (maybe something producers asked for) or if certain pieces had a tight deadline.... That sorta info is something I'd be very, very, very interested.What else would you like to see inside?
- What was deemed necessary for the cover (how many characters, classic poses, etc)
was there a facial expression required like smiling or serious?
- Sketches that were rejected (and why, if possible to include the information)
- Rough layouts
- Finished colour + Logo (I understand if this is not possible)

I'd be interested.
Oh yes, I would love book of your art work. What a great idea.
For a peace and love in our universe- MotU and POP together !

I would definetly get a book of all your artwork . If you did release a collection like this could you include the artwork that was printed on the discs themselves and the MOTU spine mural?
Like most people have suggested I would agree between $25-$50 would be what I would be able to spend on such a book

Just because I got some questions on facebook and the Italian forum:
I'm talking exclusively about DVD art.
No MOTU comic book sketches, no NECA packaging illustrations, no Hasbro concept.
Just the work I did for BCI, TimeLife, and the Italian Transformers DVD.
And yes, by uncropped art I mean, IE, all the figures that were printed on the discs, but the full, uncropped illustrations (so, basically you'll see their feet! )
I love the art on the DVDs I have. It's one of my favorite parts of the BCI releases. I especially enjoy the mug shots on and behind each DVD. I would most likely pick up a book such as this. Not only do I enjoy the art, I also like supporting the endevours of those of us on the org.
Yeah sure I love this kind of stuff, $25-40 would be a buy for sure

Yeah i'd love to own something like that. Around $30 would be ideal.
As interested in this as I am, wouldn't there be possible copyright issues in publishing something like this? Would you need to get permission from the people who own the copyrights to the characters/cartoons the art work is related to?
Even though I think I still have the files for everything you drew for our Filmation titles, I'd happily buy the sketchbook as well.
I think the prices people have been suggesting are very reasonable.
But I will cross this bridge when time comes
And, I think you'd deserve a free copy anyway!

Do you really have to ask emiliano! I would totally buy this book. I agree with a lot of the content ideaas mentioned. Hopefully you will create a few new peaces of filmation art, a group shot of all the good and bad characters. And maybe a piece with all the power players in the universe. I would hapily pay between $25-30.00, more if you create more unique filmation inspired art that we haven't yet seen in any form.

Why limit yourself to just your DVD-art? ^^
Why not a complete art-book, chronicling ALL of your Motu-work?! The comics, designs, fan-art, DVDs, you name it!
And let's not stop at just MotU, let's include ALL of your other work as well! Your Transformers-stuff in perticular, would be really cool to see ALL layed out, bare for the viewing fans...
Love to see it, man!
PS: Make Shadow the happiest man alive, and include your vision for a revamp of the GObots Leader-1 as the back-cover.
As for price... if you can keep it in the $25-$40 range, that would be best, IMO.
But if the size and content dictate a higher price, I wouldn't rule that out.

I should get a license from Mattel for something like that, and you know that isn't going to happen any time soon.
I can probably include some other MOTU related art in other personal sketchbooks, but to keep it consistent I want to do this one exclusively with DVD stuff.
Later on I may do more, but never a MOTU exclusive one.
30 Dollar is a good price for a "rare" sketchbook Emiliano. It's a 100 MYR book sketch so it's a reasonable price there.
