Hi! My name is Hyunsung Lee, but people call me Creees...or Creeeeeeeeeees. I would like to personally thank you for visiting my Kickstarter page and I hope you will consider a pledge to support my art book “Ribbit Ribbit".
I am a graduate of School of Visual Arts in New York City and have a Bachelor of Fine Art in Cartooning. I currently reside in Long Island, New York and I am a freelance comic artist and illustrator. Please click on the Twitch logo below to check out my Twitch stream where you can watch me draw comics and other illustrations live and ask me questions via chat. I suggest following my Twitch page and setting up email alerts so you don't miss out on my live drawing sessions each week.
“Ribbit Ribbit” is a 36 page, soft cover art book measuring 7 by 11 inches. (see the photo below). These pages will be a mix of all my favorite black and white and full color illustrations from this past year. Here is what the book will look like:
I want to create this art book because I personally learned a lot by looking at and studying other artists' work from their own art books. Creating that same experience for other artists and people who just enjoy art is something I would like to accomplish."Ribbit Ribbit" will mainly consist of superhero illustrations because I really enjoy drawing them. These drawings are a mix of recently commissioned work and personal projects I did for fun. The black and whites in my drawings are done traditionally with ink and brush, and most of my colored pieces are colored digitally in Photoshop. Some of the art contained in the book is available for purchase through the reward tiers of this Kickstarter. Here are some examples of the illustrations that are in this book...
and much much more!
The book has already been set up for print, but I need your help to fund the printing. All the help I receive will be very much appreciated and as a token of my appreciation, names of the supporters will be added to the thank you page at the end of my book.
The books will be printed professionally through PrintNinja

I hope you enjoy seeing my art and if you decide to help support me, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
When selecting a reward that contains original sketches of any size, I ask that you send me a message through Kickstarter with the character you would like. Characters from the DC and Marvel universe are highly recommended, but I might draw characters from comics, games, and other cartoons depending on who they are. All the original artworks will be signed so you don't have to worry about that.
An effort will be made to draw all the Original Art Rewards on my Twitch channel so be sure to check it out and see your commission drawn live by me!
Commissioned Original Artwork can be shared and posted on the web with artist credit.
When is it gonna ship?
The number of Original Art rewards I have to fulfill will determine how soon everything will be shipped. I'm estimating April 2016 to be safe, but it may ship sooner if I can finish the illustrations ahead of schedule.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask! And if you wish to follow my social media, here are my links:
Thank you for reading through my whole project! I hope that my art will inspire you in whatever work you do! Thank you so much!
Risks and challenges
I honestly think the biggest challenge will be reaching the goal.
The book is ready to be printed, I just need the funds to make this book come to life.
A personal challenge is completing all the illustrations I will have to draw, but it will be a fun challenge. Nothing to worry about :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
