Now I'm back with a lot more to share and to materialize in book form ! I've painted hundreds of images since then. To minimize the cost of shipping for me and for my backers I've decided to start off with (3) smaller Volumes separated by theme.(Original I had wanted to take pre-orders on an online store but the platform didn't offer what I was looking for which was a single place where The sole focus was to communicate easily with my backer/supporters about the progress of the project)

Risks and challenges

The Challenges for this project are getting the files press ready and the production time.
