My main goal is to publish my book, the Encyclopedia of Steampunk Animals.

I know there are a lot of books out there, by a lot of different artists. But I feel that my style of fusing organics and mechanics has yet to be fully explored or enjoyed.

I put a lot of energy and passion into each one of my drawings, to share them with the world would be the most amazing accomplishment I could imagine!

The artwork is about 80% done. I have been creating at a fevered pace for 11 months now on this project.

I have already contacted publishers/producers/binders to get a feel for what lies ahead of me, and I know this is an attainable goal.

I am having the pages printed 12”x12” 100lb cover-gloss pages

There will be a total of 32 pages printed

It will be hardcover with high-quality materials

Overall, I hope for this book to be the go-to for anyone looking to let their imagination loose or anyone who would like to enter my fun little world of an era that could have been.

Risks and challenges

I have few concerns in what might slow progress, but I do not feel that they are anything I can’t overcome.

If my arms get gnawed off my rabid wolverines, I promise you, I am driven enough to finish the book holding colored pencils in my teeth. That aside, some real world obstacles might be: The publisher taking their sweet time.

If this is the case, I promise to keep you abreast of any and all communications between myself and the publisher.

Another concern I have is distribution. To tackle that proactively, I have already begun researching the best options for getting my (our) book on the market and into loving homes.

I am capable and unafraid that this project not only can, but will be finished. It is my passion, and I love it.
