Hi, 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 fan of pop culture, and I love drawing my art series called "Pop Culture Evolutions", which are cartoon timelines of famous actors and fictional characters. I need your help to fund my new project, "The Ultimate Pop Culture Evolution".  It's an all new book featuring over 1200 cartoon characters in a year by year timeline. It's 100% never before seen art, featuring the most memorable characters in pop culture over the years. 

 
   Drawing an Evolution of this size and scope has been a passion project of mine for a long time. It's been the most challenging artistic task I've ever attempted, and trust me when I say you've never seen anything like this. The book will be hardbound with a spot UV gloss cover, measure 9x9", and feature 112 jam packed pages of full color art. 

Some sample pages, (which are slightly condensed, as these will actually be double page spreads). A fun game is seeing how many characters on each page you can name!   

So...What are the rewards? Glad you asked!

 *Please note that the interior book sketches are my own personal choice of what to draw. Only the tiers $175 and above will be able to request specific characters for their separate illustrations.

If the campaign does well, I also included some stretch goals, which will be EXCLUSIVE perks to this Kickstarter campaign. They will be revealed as the goals are unlocked. Stretch goals are only available for contributers to the $35 and up tier.

Every pledge $20+ gets one free, randomly selected sticker. At 30K, a stretch goal is unlocked and you will get FIVE stickers!

As for the choices of prints that come with your book, I have dozens to choose from, and more are being added every week. You can see the available prints at www.shopjeffvictor.bigcartel.com. The prints each measure 8" x 10". If the project is funded, I will be sending a survey to ask you your mailing address and which prints you'd like. Here are a few samples: 

The book is already 100% completed and will go to press the minute 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!

And remember, you're not just simply buying a book, you're unlocking a unique, one of a kind experience!

Risks and challenges

This is my third Kickstarter campaign, so I have an extremely good understanding of what to do. I'm working closely with the same great printer that did my last two books, and of course, I will keep all my Kickstarter backers in the loop with progress updates. The book is at the publisher now, waiting for funding so we can go ahead and fire up the printers! I ship worldwide, and the book should arrive to you in early 2019.

While you're waiting, you can follow me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/jeffvictorart, or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/jeffvictorart. I post new art all the time.

So, to conclude, I really need your help in getting the word out about this book. SHARE SHARE SHARE! Thanks again! Now, let's Kickstart!!
