MISCHIEF with Monte Michael Moore
Maybe you already have a full shelf of really cool art books like I do...then again maybe you don't. If you're like me, you just can't have too many books that inspire the imagination or cause you to want to pick up your own pencil, write a story or wonder what the heck was the artist thinking when they drew this? I have a great collection of these kinds of books, and I'll never stop collecting and enjoying them, and I hope you won't either. In the years between 1998 and 2004 I had 6 books either published by independent publishers around the world, or self-published them.
The ones I self published like Maginique (Magic, Imagination and Technique) tend to be my favorite, because I am the one that selects every image, and writes every word that goes into the book rather than a publisher. It can be quite frustrating as an artist when you spend countless hours on the artwork to create a great book, only to find the layout, typography, image selection and even cover artwork that is not printed the way it best represents your efforts. By Self Publishing this "Mischief" book, it will allow me to select the content, and make sure the quality control on the print quality is 'up to snuff'.
AD ONS #1 - Already getting a Mischief book but want some back issues of Monte Moore Artbooks? Add $20 to any book order and get a copy of Maidens II, Maginique or The Art of Wench mini print book! Add $60 and get all 3! Int'l orders will need to add $30 per book to cover the extra shipping.
AD ONS #2 - So you wanna play some WENCH? The Sexiest Party/Drinking game you'll every play comes with 52 beautifully illustrated game cards with Monte Moore Pin-ups. Ad $20 to your pledge and let me know that is what you would like included! If you'd like to see other prints and sculptures available, please visit www.mavarts.com - Int'l orders please add another $10 for shipping. (this game not currently available outside USA, so yours would be RARE copy indeed!)
AD ONS #3 - There are still a few issues of my largest Full Color artbook published back in 2004, entitled MAJESTIKA. It includes gaming, pin-up, comics, how-to sections, and a 22 page fully illustrated Monte Moore graphic novel story in the back. This is a larger book and available as hardcover and softcover. Add $35 for softcover and $45 for hardcover to your pledge to receive these signed editions. - Int'l orders please add another $10 for shipping.
AD ONS#4 - The reason that the Elmore and Moore package does not include a copy of the Mischief Art Book is because I assumed some Elmore fans may only want that piece and not the art book. So for $23 for domestic orders you can ad the Mischief book to your order, or $35 for Int'l Orders.
Since I had quite an array of books available, I stopped publishing new works books for almost a decade...but always scanned the new work and stashed it away for when the time is right to publish a new one... and that time is NOW. This new collection will feature Movie Posters, Private Commissions for Collectors and from Conventions, Gaming Illustrations, Luscious Pin-ups, Devilish Demons, Feisty Dragons and never before published Star Wars illustrations (approved by Lucasfilm).
This book will be at least 64 pages, but may grow in size if the project were to hit its funding goal and need stretch goals to grow the content and size. Rather than being only a black and white sketchbook, this offering will be at least half in color to capture the vibrancy of my paintings. So if you're a fan of Pirate Lasses ...
then the chances are you will enjoy this all new collection of my artwork. It's a great thing that today an artist like myself can self-publish a limited edition art book with high quality reproductions and not need a faceless publisher to do it, but the drawback is that it is often solely up to us to make it happen.
If you've read through the Packages offered, you see some references to prints, games and other rewards, below is a selection of some of these artistic thank you's for your support.
Here is a nice example of what the single figure 11x14 sketch can look like if you choose this for your pledge! The possibilities are endless...

STRETCH GOAL #1
Let's keep this Project rocking! Help spread the word or step up to another package, and if we reach 10K as a Goal, I'll add in a 8x10 SIGNED print plate of one of my most luscious MERMAID drawings for all who received the MISCHIEF book!
Risks and challenges
Artist's are often Lone Wolves, and I suppose I am no exception. My only exception to the rules of how most artists are is that I try my very best to be more organized, professional, communicative and timely than some in my profession. That being said the pledge rewards in this campaign are already in my possession accept the new books, and any of the original art that needs to be created. So if all the rewards that involve me creating artwork such as sketches, drawings, paintings and such are purchased, and new stretch goals met, there is a chance I could be delayed in sending out products, but I assure my fans and supporters I will do my very best to stay on top of the obligations I have committed myself to, and still deliver the highest quality product and artwork that you've come to expect from me!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
