About

"UNCUT" Sketchbook (Special Edition)

Artist Mike Stewart brings you a special edition 70 page  collection  of his best work from the past couple years; illustrated  using the best quality pencils, inks, and copic markers. This art book  contains uncensored stylized artwork of the human figure and pinups in  an acclaimed comic book style.

Stewart started his professional  comics career drawing backgrounds for Top Cow's The Magdalena. Since  then he has gone on to other published works such as Unite and Takeover,  ImagineFX Magazine, KIKS TYO, and more. 

This campaign is  important to us because it counters the idea that an artist should be  ashamed to draw the nude human form especially the nude female body.
 Throughout Stewart's recent art dealings in the world of so called fine art academia; he was told to splash paint on the canvas and forget all standards of beauty in art, and he has been censored by university professors for his beautiful nude figures, clothed figures, and dynamic comic book  style pinup illustrations. This book is a testament to perseverance and  truth prevailing in a world of social constraint and control.

Warning: This Art book will contain depictions of mildly nude female figures which may be offensive  to some people and inappropriate for children. The artist and parties  involved in production are not responsible for any demonstrations or  sensitive feelings an individual may have. It is not pornographic.

2000$ Stretch goal, any backer who has ordered a physical edition will receive a high quality glossy print with their order.
