Joe Ledbetter Sketchbook

72dpi - JoeLedbettersSketchbook_8 

Nerdcore (the geniuses who bring you the red hot calendars) is launching their new series of artist sketchbooks.  Each collected sketchbook will bring you a raw look at an artist’s creative process.    We’re stoked to bring you a first look at the very first sketchbook by  none other than Joe Ledbetter.   Each page of this sketchbook is a near perfect copy of a page (warts and all -- smudges, finger prints, ink splatters) from one of the numerous books  Joe used to document his creative ideas and whatever else was on his mind over the past six years.  A wide variety of material is presented including  rough painting compositions, mockups for vinyl toys, illustration concepts, to-do lists, random phone numbers and more.

Joe Ledbetter’s Sketchbook is currently available for pre-order at Nerdcore and will ship in October of 2008 for $25 (+ shipping).   The  eco-friendly hardcover volume measures  7.25 x 10 inches and features 184 pages loaded with hundreds of sketches printed on 100% recycled paper.  As a bonus 100 hand silk-screened, signed and numbered 6 x 8” prints will be randomly inserted into books pre-ordered by September 1st.   For more info check out the official fact sheet.

After the jump – a first look at the sketchbook.
