I am super double mega excited to announce that Dave Dorman has agreed to do the cover for Henchmen number one! Being huge Star Wars geeks, Jamison and I are floored to have the opportunity to work with Dave. We are very, very excited to see what he puts together for us.
THIS IS NOT A STRETCH GOAL
You read that right. I was able to find a better printing deal and play with the budget so that EVERY SINGLE backer gets to see Dave's work on the cover. We will also be using Dave's cover art for the poster art, so you can stick it on the wall and hold it in your hands!
Please continue to help us spread the word. Let's try to get to 50% in our first week!
Wikipedia has a habit of summizing things better than I can, so here is a summary of Dave's career, and links to some samples of other covers he has done:
Dorman has been known for more than 20 years because of his photo-realistic style of oil painting. Dorman's Star Wars: The Art of Dave Dorman cocktail table art book was the top-selling art book in 1996 for Ballantine Books and became the textbook of choice for illustration courses at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois. He was also voted "The #1 Star Wars Artist of All Time" by Star Wars Galaxy Magazine in 1996. Star Wars creator George Lucas is a fan of Dorman's work and has purchased dozens of Dorman's original oil paintings. Dorman held a license with Lucasfilm for many years to do limited edition prints. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Dorman
