Taylor Studios - Sketchbook 6Yes, Sketchbook 6, the latest addition in our sketchbook (brochure) series is here! Our sketchbooks have become somewhat of a collector’s item over the years. How many from the series have you collected? All five, maybe? Take a picture with your Sketchbook collection (has to be originals and not downloaded versions) and post it to our Facebook wall then I’ll send you Sketchbook 6 along with a coffee mug or t-shirt or something else equally cool! If you don’t have the back issues, you can download them or if you’d like a snazzy hardcopy of 4, 5, or 6, email me (kvanskike (at) taylorstudios (dot) com) your address and I’ll be happy to mail one to you (sorry all out of 1 and 2).

A Different Approach

Taylor Studios, Inc. has been on a fantastic Journey over the past 23 years and this Sketchbook shows some of our ‘greatest hits’ from the past four years (that’s how long its been since Sketchbook 5 was introduced!). While keeping with the Sketchbook theme, we changed things up a bit this time around. The most obvious change, aside from the sleeker dark color, is that it’s formatted in landscape rather than portrait. On the inside, you’ll find stories about TSI, many of our recent projects and a QR code which will explain some of the subtle references to…well, I’ll leave that for you to figure out.

Let me know what you think in the comments below and join the Journey online!

Baldwin Asylum Haunted House, Rantoul, IL This year we all got to participate in a haunting new adventure.  Marc Dams, lead sculptor at Taylor Studios Inc., bought a haunt.  He asked if we could join forces in a partnership and run it out of the Taylor Studios’ production building, an old Wal-Mart.  Many of us have been interested in adding a side business in the haunt industry.  We have been attending tradeshows, learning the trade and crunching the numbers over the last several years.  Marc and several of the artists at Taylor Studios are passionate about the haunt industry.  Marc took the risk to make his passion a reality and invested in purchasing a haunt.
