Hey kickstarters!

We're looking for some help to raise funds for our next art book.

Mock Up of Under the Hood
Mock Up of Under the Hood

Under the Hood is Sean Murphy's first art book so we're really excited to bring it to you. 

Since this is Sean's first art book we want to make sure we produce something nice for the fans.

We're looking to do a 100 page hardcover book which will not only have process work, life drawings, commissions and pin ups but will also include a special 8 page story written and drawn by Sean.

Each book sold through kickstarter will be signed by Sean.

Thanks for your support!
Jason and Sean

Risks and challenges

Like most art book projects we produce, funding is a main stress to make sure that we can create a book to certain standards.

We're also looking to raise enough funds to hire a top notch colorist to do their magic on the 8 page story that Sean wrote for this book.
