My new book, Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book is published today by Chronicle Books. I made a special website at whyissasquatchcrying.com for you to learn more about it.
If you’d like to get one to draw in, Sasquatch has arranged for a special discount code for you meathaus.com readers to use at Chroniclebooks.com where you will receive 20% off and free shipping on your order, and that code is of course, SASQUATCH. It’s valid from today until the end of September. By the way, that makes the book cost 10 bucks and change with free shipping. You can take care of all that buying business right here. (Code works for orders in USA.)
Here’s a few things people have been saying about the book so far:
“This book dares you to get silly about drawing. An anxiety shattering process, especially for people who draw for a living. Like going to the gym where the only exercise is getting a massage.”
—Tomer Hanuka, illustrator, teacher.
“McD, The book is rad. My 7, 9 & 12 yr olds are going bananas over the sample you sent. My little girl started giving me a pout because middle son was hogging the copy of Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book!”
—Gaston D-Letelier, owner, Meltdown Comics. (Pick up the book in person at Meltdown Comics soon!)
“Got … ‘Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book’, and I hereby deem it to be my favorite of Sasquatch’s books”.
—Jhonen Vasquez, creator of Invader Zim on Nickelodeon.
“What I love about Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book is that it really encourages kids to use their imagination — and most importantly to draw, draw and draw! What I also love about the book is that in a world of slick CGI films that there’s a very warm and whimsical quality to the illustrations in the book by Chris McDonnell; you get the feeling that your doodling amongst friends who have a sense of humor.”
—Michael Pinto, Fanboy.com
“This Sasquatch thing looks like so much fun—I want to draw on the vans first.
It’s like you’ve made the perfect McD-style culmination of all the best games and puzzle draw-in books of yesteryear.”
—Brandon Graham, comic book author/artist.
Fun fact: his excellence Jason Sacher was the editor at Chronicle Books who brought this project from pitch to completion. Thanks Jay!
People who draw in the book are sending me their scans and photos so I can share them here. I love seeing what strange things happen in those books out in the wild.
