Hi!  I'm Christine Larsen, and I love drawing orcs. They are one of my favorite subjects to warm up with in the morning, and a fun way for me to relax when I am drawing for fun. The orc art book is a collection of these illustrations, bound together in a little, perfect bound book with a wrap around cover and gate fold in the front. So, if you like orcs, then I imagine you will like this little book!

ORCS collects sketches, morning warm ups, paintings and illustrations that I have done over the past few years.  I already put out a first run of this book through pre-orders that I took via my Big Cartel site.  This kickstarter is to fund a second run of the book and to bring the book to a wider audience.  

The Specs:

Size (closed): 5.5 x 7.5"
Cover Stock: Heavyweight, laminated gloss
Paper stock: 70 gloss
Binding: perfect bound
Gate fold: 4.5" in front

Cover opens to a 15.5" wide landscape illustration
Interior front cover is a 10" wide landscape illustration

WARNING: This book contains some mild nudity, specifically, lady orc titties.  Not for young children!  

...

Though, I suppose you could get it for young children that don't mind looking at orc titties... but I don't know... that may lead to some issues down the road.

Have a look at some of the interior images...

Please Note: There are no WoW orcs, no Skyrim orcs, no DnD orcs and no renderings of orcs from the Peter Jackson movies or the illustrated Tolkien Books.  This is not a book of fan art, but a collection of monsters from my imagination.  Please be aware of that when you order.  

Risks and challenges

I just have to order the books, postcards and bookmarks at this point. When I first did preorders, I had major issues with printers and switching over to a new vendor and delays in shipping and planning a wedding. I have none of that to worry about here. The only thing that may take a while are the books with sketches in them, and I allowed myself a month to account for that extra time. I guess, if I'm hit by a bus, that may put a damper on things, but this book is pretty much good to go.
