Sketchtravel Finale

Posted on Thursday 27 October 2011

Most of you might have already seen and heard the fantastic result of the Sketchtravel auction that took place last week in Brussels.

It was a loooong journey and it paid off very well.

The original Sketchbook = 70,000 Euros (96,200 US$)
Total of 9 Signed Sketchbooks = 6,000 Euros (8,250 US$)

Total Proceeds from the auction = 76,000 Euros (104,450 US$)

Looks like we are able to build more than one library!!!!!

Thank you soooooooooooo much for every one of you who supported directly and indirectly this labor of love project.

And here is the animated film I created for the project.  You may have already seen it because it has been played on many other websites.

I cannot say its quality is what I was hoping for but it sure taught me a lot for sure.  I hope I can try to direct another film and next time I can use the wisdom I got from this experience to help!

    Stunning. I usually struggle to appreciate limited animation but your style suits it perfectly, I couldn’t imagine it done in any other way.

    Day one purchase right here!

    Bravo Dice! Congratulations on all these amazing achievements. I can’t wait to see the sketchbook released. The film was fun to watch, and it is jaw-dropping knowing how many panels had to be painted!!! Go Dice!

    Its a gorgeous short. I have to wonder a little bit if the characters represent anyone. 🙂
    Happy to hear the auction went over well! The whole thing is such a wonderful idea and experience.

    こんにちは。初めまして。テレビで堤さんのことを拝見してからのファンです(^^)でも、今日ようやくホームページに辿り着きました。私は、今月絵をかくことを始めました。独学ですし、26才、遅いですが、日々練習して頑張ります。スケッチトラベルの成功おめでとうございます。この企画がずっとずっと続いて、私もいつかスケッチトラベルに参加することが夢のひとつです。

    thank you so much!
    We got the US publishing deal in place. We will be announcing it on our facebook page!

    –Dalibor
    thank you! Yes, it was a lot of panels to paint and I must say it was the hardest thing I have done.(and the result is still nothing compared to many animated shorts….)
    I had many occasions where I was going to give up.
    By the way your recent still life paintings are great!!!

    –Katy
    hahaha. Actually, many wondered who each animal represented. There were lots of back stories untold during the journey and people who know about it saw something in my short that they can laugh about

    日本語版も2012年に出版予定です!

    26歳ですか! ぜんぜん遅くないですよ!
    僕のピクサーの同僚で、28歳で銀行員をやめて奥さんに頼み込んで、二年間アニメの勉強をし、今やトップアニメーターになったって人もいます!
    情熱と努力です。
    そして、結果にでるでないでなくて、それはとっても楽しいはずです!
    スケッチトラベルを続けるかはわかりませんが、マミさんが同じような企画を始める事だって可能です!
