My name is Derek Laufman and I've been a professional artist for over 18 years. I've worked in video games, comics and designed toys for Hasbro and Mattel. I've Illustrated children's books for Marvel/Disney and designed Marvel's newest Super Hero Adventures line.

THE CAMPAIGN

I've come to Kickstarter to help bring back my previously sold out Artbook 1 but with a big upgrade! Artbook 1 XL Edition is going to have a soft cover with 100 pages (52 pages of NEW content) and 7.5 x 10" in size!  Matching perfectly with my latest Artbook 2 and all future art books. Now they can all sit nicely on your shelf as a set for years to come!

This book is jam packed with 100's of my illustrations. Showcasing my work in video games, concept art, visual development, personal projects and my love of fan art. This art book has everything from rough sketches, to final digital colored artwork, character designs, backgrounds and props. It's a great book for professional artists, asipiring creators or just fans of art and pop culture.

Risks and challenges

Although this is my first campaign I have printed 2 art books on my own prior to this, as well as my own comic book. I have a good working relationship with the printer located in Montreal Canada and after speaking with them and setting print dates, I don't foresee any problems hitting our delivery schedule. My wife Valerie and I have over 2 years of experience shipping my art books and prints all over the world. We have a speedy system setup at home that allows us to ship out mass orders in a good amount of time.
