UPDATE 4/6: We've vastly lowered our stretch goals! 

  • At $20,000, we will add gold foil to both the book and the shirts. (formerly $25,000)
  • At $25,000, we will make all the books hardcover! (formerly $45,000)

We've added a minimalist package for the cost-conscious buyer! You can now get just the book (no add-ons) for just $25

And the $15 and $35 tiers now comes with two sticker sets. For those of you who pledge an additional $5, you'll now get three sticker sets!

UPDATE 4/2: Artist Tiffany Le sent in photo samples of the house pendants. And now, we're giving the entire pendant set to all backers $100 and above (previously $200)!

"House Pendant Set" by Tiffany Le, yours for a pledge of $100 and up!

Draw 'Em With the Pointy End is a limited-edition, 160-page, full color, 8.5"x11", softcover, tribute art book with over 100 artists from around the world sharing their original homages to G. R. R. Martin's series, A Song of Ice and Fire (a.k.a. Game of Thrones). If we pass $25,000 the book will be hardcover!

Our line-up features dozens of professional and emerging illustrators from across the globe (80% of whom are women!) who've exhibited in numerous art galleries and print publications.  Collective art credits include: Marvel, BOOM! Studios, Nickelodeon (Avatar: The Legend of Korra), DreamWorks Animation, Titmouse Inc, DisneyTV, Paramount Pictures, Legendary Pictures (GodzillaPacific Rim), SyFy (Defiance), Wizards of the Coast, Fantasy Flight Games, Gaia Online, Electronic Arts, Spark Unlimited (Lost Planet 3), Ready at Dawn (The Order: 1886), and more! Here's a preview of some of the art:

Not enough? (Almost) Every day during the campaign, we will post an update showcasing a full piece from the art book!... And we'll post another for every $1,000 we earn! See the UPDATES PAGE or the TUMBLR GALLERY for posted work.  So share with your friends, and maybe we can get that hardcover version!

This project is spear-headed and art-directed by Grace Fong, a jack-of-all-trades in Los Angeles, CA - capable of drawing, programming, and managing all on a professional level.  She manages her own online- and convention-based, freelance business and has worked in technical roles at DreamWorks Animation and Infinity Ward. Sometimes she has crazy project ideas and makes things happen, including three successful crowdfunding campaigns. You can follow her here:

Our assistant manager and social media guru is Susan Bin. She is currently a Harvard student and free-lance illustrator who has worked for DreamWorks Animation and Facebook. She has a passion for visual development and designs and sells merchandise through her online store. She can be found on: 

 

And here's how you can help!  This is a non-profit project.  The campaign pays for printing 500-1000 books and compensates the artists at a flat rate - but every dollar past our goal will be used to print even more!  Additional copies will be sold on non-Kickstarter venues and the profit from these further sales will go towards organizations that benefit wolves and wildlife. :) Kickstarter does not allow funds to be directly given to charity.

 And here's what you can get for helping us!

Please select the tier associated with the artist you'd like work from. Each artist has an individual, limited number of slots, so please pledge early! Click each artist's name for specific samples similar to what you would get.

 We're working with the wonderful folks at Gallery Nucleus in San Gabriel, CA to hold a book signing event! Come meet the artists and get your copy personalized or pick up an original piece.  The signing date will be either June 6 or June 13, 2015

All the food from last year!

The signing is open to everyone, but if you pledge over $1,000, you will be invited to join the artists at a private wrap feast (held the same weekend as the signing) in Burbank, CA. Pledge enough, and we'll cover your airfare and housing! These tiers get you and a friend tickets - and full sets of swag!

  • $1,000 - 2 Invites to the Book Signing and Feast + 2 Tote Bags + 2 Sets of Pendants + 2 Shirts + 2 Books + 2 Sets of Sticker Sets + 2 PDF Books + 2 Wallpapers! We will help you find housing and transportation, but you must pay for it.
  • $5,000 - 2 Invites to the Book Signing and Feast + 2 Tote Bags + 2 Sets of Pendants + 2 Shirts + 2 Books + 2 Sets of Sticker Sets + 2 PDF Books + 2 Wallpapers! Includes housing and transportation.

If we reach $20,000, the cover of all books will be gold foil stamped and all shirts will be gold foil stamped!

If we reach $25,000, all books will be hardcover!

We'd be grateful if you shared our campaign project with your friends!  To make things easier, feel free to follow and share from these social media accounts.  Remember, new art every day! And if we pass $25,000 we will make every book hardcover!

Risks and challenges

Everything for this project is set (including all artwork, due dates, and pricing quotes with PrintNinja and Gallery Nucleus) - we just need to send it off to the printer!

PrintNinja estimates 4-8 weeks turnaround time, and then it will take us an additional 3-5 weeks to get all the books shipped out after the book signing and feast event.
