Original Idea

World Sketching Tour in Europe is a graphic novel by me, Luís Simões, a freelance illustrator and traveler sketcher creator from Lisbon, Portugal. Since 2012 I’ve been traveling and sketching the world and the goal of this crowdfunding is to collect the majority of the sketches I did and write the story of the journey into a beautiful hardcover book, along with new sketches and some extra prints!

World Sketching Tour – Europe

What is the World Sketching Tour?

It’s a journey started in March 2012 of a nomad – me – showing the bright side of the world in the form of sketches. As in all the adventures, there were many unforgettable moments that I got involved and become great stories. You can read more about the project here.

The Book and What’s Inside

It will be a 120 pages hardcover book with a 130gms paper stock. Inside you’ll find:

– A big selection of sketches I did during the year of 2012 and 2013 while I traveled in Europe
– The storytelling, that I did in comic style to better explain how was the journey.
– Maps of where I when, with places and tips.

The countries I will cover are: Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Italy, Croatia, Turkey and Russia.

Preview pages

Please note that since I’m still working on this, some adjustments can be done 🙂

 

The goal and why I need your help:

Self-Publishing means a lot of work and is expensive, especially if you want to make a hardcover book. With this campaign I hope to cover all the expenses in producing a print run of 300 copies (or more in the off chance the campaign supersedes it’s goal) and to show my work to a wider audience.

Where the money goes:

– 84% Production
– 13% Shipping
– 3% Fees

Rewards

During the crowdfunding, the Book will have a discount price. It will be free shipping for Portugal only. Unfortunatly to send it internationally is out of range for 25€.

There is a second option with 8 prints of 8 different sketchers for the ones who choose. It’s also with a discount price during the crowdfunding and it will be free shipping for Portugal only.

Risks & Challenges

The book is now 60% done. The next couple months I’ll be working on the 40% witch means: selecting sketches from Italy, Croatia, Turkey and Russia, write the last part, sketch the characters and lastly layout the pages. All should be done by the end of may 2021. If the campaign succeeds, the book will go to print in early June and should be ready to be shipped by beginning of July 2021.
