To fund the production of an 80 page full color book collecting over 50 illustrations from a variety of traditional and digital media.
My name is tomas overbai. Thank you for this opportunity to share my artwork with you.
RUIN is an 80 page full color 8.5 X 8.5 softcover perfect bound artbook.
RUIN is a tactile physical record of over 50 illustrations from a variety of traditional and digital media.
RUIN is a relic found in an ancient vault deep beneath the Island of Kal3fornia in the year of the slug 1062 and used as the human template for a generation of Transhuman Commandos fighting the evil Slacky-DAKS throughout the galaxy.
HA! Well, maybe not that last one.
RUIN is my kickstarter project to fund the reproduction of my art in as many forms as possible. And you can make that happen with your pledge.
I am currently working on the layout and design of the book. Here are a few examples of pages I am currently working on.
The project funding will be used to manufacture all the "RUIN" items. I will attempt to insure the maximum quality in every object. The more pledges I get the higher quality I can afford for production of all the items:
paper, shipping, inks, book print runs, t-shirts, ink jet printer

Thanks for your time.
