Hey guys! My name is Jeff Victor. I'm a Los Angeles based illustrator who has worked as a character designer in animation and video games, and currently working as a children's book illustrator. I'm a huge movie fan, and for fun I love to draw fan art and create timelines (or "Evolutions") of famous actors or fictional characters. My newest series of cute pop culture characters I call "Bubbleheads" due to their cute, extra large noggins. I have an enormous passion to create, and I'm looking for your help to fund my new art book, "Adorkable: the Art of Jeff Victor Volume Two." I think you're really going to like it!
Some kind words from a few of the many sites that have featured my art:
"Adorable, nerdy, nostalgic, and above all delightful"- Brian Galindo, Buzzfeed
"Jeff Victor's art is bright, charming, whimsical, hearttfelt, and overflowing with love for pop culture."-Joseph McCabe, Nerdist
"Jeff Victor's art has an awesomely fun unique style that always entertains." -Joey Paur, Geek Tyrant
"Artist Jeff Victor has made my geeky, cinephiliac infographic-loving heart happy." -Rebecca Pahle, The Mary Sue
And there's this:
Over the last few months, I have collected the best of my recent work into a handsome book. It retains the same dimensions as my previous book, Wicked Crispy. The book will be hardbound with a spot UV gloss cover, 10"x8", and feature 96 jam packed pages of full color art. All my new "Evolutions" pieces (Fall 2013- Jan 2016) will be included, as well as tons of illustrations, (some of which have never been seen), character designs, sketches and a step by step of my process. If you'd like to see more of my art, check out my website at www.jeffvictor.blogspot.com.
So...What are the rewards?
Some more page samples from "Adorkable"
Also, as a special bonus, I'm hiding 10 randomly inserted bonus sketchbooks in all the tiers $75 and up. It's an 40 page out of print jam sketchbook I did with a friend a few years ago. Good luck!
The book is already completed and will go to press as soon as it's funded. I can't wait to see it printed and in your hands. I am so incredibly grateful to you for reading, watching, sharing, and donating. Thank you for all your support!
Risks and challenges
This is my second art book, so I have a very good understanding of what to do now, having learned a lot from my previous effort. Still, whenever you publish anything overseas, there is always the chance that something will be delayed. I'm working closely with the same great printer that did my last book, and of course, I will keep this Kickstarter page updated as any new info comes in. The book is ready to go to print as soon as it's funded, so expect the final product to arrive sometime in July/August. (fingers crossed)
While you're waiting, if you haven't picked up my first art book, "Wicked Crispy", you can find it at my online store at www.shopjeffvictor.bigcartel.com/products
A brief word about shipping costs. To my friends and backers who live overseas, prices have risen again, and I'm sorry that overseas postage is so high. It's a bummer, but there's nothing I can do about it. Apologies. However, since all countries are different, if, when I mail your book, it ends up being cheaper than what you paid, I will make up the difference, and reimburse you the extra money.
Additionally, if you know me personally, and would just like to pick up the book in person, I will happily refund your shipping cost. :)
So, to conclude, I need your help in getting the word out about this book. I'd love to reach my goal, but if I go over, that's even better! The extra money will be spent on improving the book and adding new goodies for you guys! Thanks again! Now, let's Kickstart!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
