Geeky Goddesses: The Pin-up Art of Sean Forney is an art book three years in the making. Sean worked with various models in the mid-west (mainly Ohio) to bring together a themed book full of pin-up drawings. All art is completed with pencils, inks, and digital colors by comic artist Sean Forney. The book shows a variety of progression images with brainstorming, sketches, and line work, leading up to a finished rendered image. There are also head shots and bios for each of the models used within the book.
The models include:
- Erica Fett
- Brianne Jeanette
- Lucian Cline
- Dean McQueen
- Lady Devann
The pin-up list is as follows:
- Captain Rosella the Pirate
- Snow Queen
- Super Zucchi
- God Zucchi
- Sailor Devann
- The Scarf
- Wicked Witch
- Sirena the Mermaid
- Bounty Hunter
- Garla Clorr the Sci-Fi Princess
- Dynamite Dolls
- Comic Fan Girl
- The Vampire
- Little Red Riding Hood / Scarlet Huntress

Risks and challenges
There are many challenges in self publishing any book, from the creative process of developing the story, art and production to the business side of funding, networking and promoting. We know that to get the high quality of art that we want and that our readers deserve we will be releasing the book when it is ready, within less than a years time. Our biggest challenge right now is funding. That’s why we are here on Kickstarter. If we can meet our Kickstarter goal (or surpass it), we can devote our full time to getting this book done and getting new art done to promote it. Our risks and challenges are basically everyday life. We are full-time artists, juggling a few projects to keep a roof over our loved ones. This is what drives us and we love it. Making our deadlines is something we strive for everyday. The other challenges that may arise are shipment schedules that come with dealing with our vendors/suppliers. We will do our best to make sure things go smoothly as possible. These risks and challenges aren't something new to us, but are very familiar, and we will do everything in our power to get everything produced, manufactured, and in your hands as soon as possible. This book is 80% complete, meaning the majority of the art, page layouts, and formatting is finished. Only a few images remain to be created, formatted and then sent to print.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
