NEW STRETCH GOAL. So great news! Everyone that's getting a copy of the book will now be getting the TK bookmark and 11x17 fold out Spider Gwen print colored by Arif Prianto! I've added a new stretch goal to take this sucker to the next level! Wouldn't it be fun to see the full process of this piece from start to finish! I want to film it!! I know this is a long shot but in order do a quality video. I would need the right equipment to do so. An HD Gopro type camera and good video program. The good thing about this is it would enable me to film my work process often in the future! There is also a chance Arif might be able to film the color process as well!

WE MADE IT!!! Thanks everyone!

Now onto the stretch goals!!

(Note: All sketch option rewards are a character of your choice!)

After being in the world of Comics for over 13 years and art world for even longer. It's time I compile my huge collection of work into a big beautiful hard cover art book!! I've worked on books like Green Lantern corps, Action comics, Superman Batman, Amazing Spiderman, Ultimate Fantastic four, X-Men Phoenix Warsong, Tomb Raider, The Darkness, and a hand full of others! I've never put out a sketch/art book of my own. So this is a first!

I'm highlighting select pieces from my career! Including layouts, sketches, convention sketches and commissions. Sequential pages, covers, childrens book art, graphic design art, and conceptual art. The ultimate insider look at my collection of work! 

I need Kickstarter and YOU to make it happen though! The funds will go to the cost of printing and shipping, the design work and editing, As well as packaging supplies and postage to get the books to your home! 

Kickstarter is a perfect platform for me to get pre orders, thus funding the project! I'll be offering other incentives and goodies for backers as well! Take a look! 

I appreciate you taking the time and thanks for the support! 

As we inch closer to the goal! I plan on adding a couple stretch goals to help push us over the edge! Anyone getting a book will receive these items if we reach these goal!

This image will not be in the art book. It will only be available in print form and if this goal is met.
