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.
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

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
