Hey guys!!! I'm very excited to share a project that I've wanted to work on for a long time. I know that I'm not alone when I say that there are a TON of us out there who enjoy looking at Hi-Res images of paintings. In many ways, these details, these wonderful close-ups, are complimentary images that provide deeper and more telling information into how exactly a painting was constructed.
I want to do a book that is built upon that notion. It's not only about registering and reproducing paintings, drawings and sketches, but also about the "behind-the-scenes" details that give us a sense of the inner workings of a painting.
Along with these images, there will be a moment in the book dedicated to comprehensively registering the conception and full development of a specific painting, from rough compositional sketching to final varnishing.The images will be accompanied by very precise technical commentary.
Bottom line, I want to make a great looking book on my painting made exclusively for us, FOR painters. I've been collecting Art Books for the last 25 years and I have the experience to understand the sort of publication we deeply enjoy. Large reproductions, highly quality photography, close ups that that tell stories and commentary that shines light into technical processes.
This kickstarter is a simple, straight-forward editorial project. No nonsense. I'm proposing that you guys accompany me in financing the production of a publication on my most recent work. A book that will get you as close as possible to my thinking process.
I have previous experience editing Art books, and I will personally be behind the design and photography of this project. You guys can be sure that the responsibility, discipline and attention to detail that goes into my painting is the exact same one that will go into every step of development of this book.
I'm incredibly excited about this. Over the years countless people have asked about the availability of my previous books, and urged me to update them on when my next publication would be available. Well this is it. And with your aid, this will be an absolute joy to work on.

A book on my painting, made specifically for painters. A publication I've always wanted to do full of images and information I've always wanted to share.
It's definitely going to be something special.
