The Art of Stranski NEW FULL COLOUR ARTBOOK kickstarter has LAUNCHED!

Posted by Lorenzo Etherington (Creator)

Hey guys, my brand new, FULL COLOUR STRANSKI artbook with 3D CHAPTER and GLASSES is now on KICKSTARTER! See it HERE!

The Book

The Art of Stranski will be a 100 page full colour hardback book measuring 11.6" by 8.2". The book collects together several years of concept art and illustrations from my "lost" 1940s adventure, STRANSKI. The world of Stranski is far better seen than described, so before you go any further, check out an entire gallery of animated Stranski posters RIGHT HERE. The 3D Chapter and Glasses

The 3D Chapter and Glasses

The 3D chapter in the book features a selection of my favourite Stranski posters, painstakingly re-created as traditional 3D anaglyph images, just like they did it in the early '50s. Each copy of the book comes with custom Stranski 3D glasses, for viewing these special pages.

Shipping costs for customers outside the UK

For UK customers postage is FREE, but if you live outside the UK you'll need to add a shipping cost when you pledge, as detailed in the boxes on the right. I'm sorry it's expensive, but these books are HEAVY (especially the sketchbooks). The Sketchbooks

The Sketchbooks

In the higher tiers you can get my two 600 page Deluxe Collection Sketchbooks at a lower price than normal. These books are softback black and white MONSTERS, filled to the brim with thousands of my designs, concepts and illustrations. There are two great ways to sample the work in these books - either check out the original Kickstarter campaign for them HERE, or enjoy FREE previews of BOOK 2 HERE and BOOK 1 HERE.

A huge thank you for taking the time to watch the video and check out the campaign, you can find out more about me and my work HERE.

Hey everybody! It's been a long time since the Deluxe Collection 2 kickstarter that you all so kindly supported, and I thought you guys might like to know about a special online print shop I'm running from now until 3rd October.

I'm offering TEN different A2 (16.5 x 23.4 inches) STRANSKI prints, on heavy, glorious 350gsm stock at the lovely price of just £15 each including FREE DELIVERY WORLDWIDE :) All prints will be signed by me before they leave the studio!

If you like the sound of them, then head over to the STRANSKI PRINT SHOP RIGHT HERE, and check them out!

In the meantime, thanks again for supporting the Deluxe Collection 2, and stay tuned for a new kickstarter coming from me next year :)




And we're DONE!

Hey folks! All the packages have now been sent, so you'll all have your books by the end of Feb, as promised. Indeed, many of you already have them, and a huge thanks to those who have taken the time to tweet me pics of their unboxed books in their home/workplace/studio etc. Soooo cool to see!

This will be the last update of the campaign, though if I do return to Kickstarter with another project in the future I'll post an additional update in here before I announce it anywhere else, so that you guys will be the FIRST to know about it :)

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all again for what has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience from beginning to end.

If you need to contact me, you can message me through kickstarter, tweet me HERE or email me at and if you want to see more new stuff, I post art on my BLOG a couple of times a week.

As one final extra treat, here's 40 brand new character designs that were drawn too late in the year to make it into the Deluxe Collection part 2...



The books are ready to go!

Happy New Year! As you can see from the pic below, the books are here! I took delivery before Christmas (along with the book 1s for those who ordered them too), and have been busily sketching, signing, and boxing them up since, so I'm now ready to start sending them out! Whoop! Keep an eye on your inbox over the next day or so, as I'll be sending out surveys for your mailing addresses.

IMPORTANT: Please note that I'm going to be sending the books out in SMALL BATCHES EACH DAY from now until the middle of February, so you'll need to provide an address where your package can be received during the next six weeks. If you're MOVING HOUSE during the next SIX WEEKS, then please provide the address of a friend or family member who can take delivery of the package for you.

Based on my shipping plan, you'll all have your books by the end of February. Yay!


The PRINTS are here!
