 UPDATE

We are closing in on our fifth stretch goal. When we hit this goal, every pledge will receive a copy of SpellCasters. SpellCasters will be 64 page squarebound book. It will contain images of Soceresses, Mages, and Witches. The book will have black & white and color images. Help us reach this goal and receive this additional book at no extra charge!

 Welcome to the Kicjstarter Campaign for the Art of MItch Foust 2018 Yearbook!

Every year for the past ten years, I have put together a book of all the work I did in the last year. This year has been busy. The 2018 Yearbook is going to be the largest yet. Past Yearbooks have been 64 pages. This year's book is going to be at least 84, maybe even more. I think part of the reason I've gotten so much work completed this is my Patreon site. I have been trying to post daily with my work from the previous day. It has encouraged me to keep the work flowing.

Looking back over the past Yearbooks, my work is still evolving. I've heard an artist's career is a journey. It feels good to know I'm still walking down the path. Take a look, and see where I've been this year!

If you are new to my work, you can find more of it at mitchfoustart.com, Deviant ArtPatreon, Facebook, and on Instagram.

This is my fifth Yearbook Kickstarter Campaign. With every Kickstarter, I've offered a companion book. This year's book is Valkyrie Sisters. Valkyrie Sisters will be 64 pages of Valkyries, Shieldmaidens and Viking Warriors. Looking back through my work, I have well over a hundred images to choose from for this subject. The page count could climb higher! Valkyrie Sisters is exclusive to this Kickstarter Campaign. There will probably be only a little over a hundred printed.

 The Commissions for the Kickstarter Campaigns are the only commissions I take during the year besides my Patreon commitments. Last year's commissions subjects were varied and imaginative. I'm curious to see what ya'll come up with this year. Please keep your requests suitable for publication. These will be included in the 2019 Yearbook. Nudity is acceptable, but the image will probably be altered for the book. I’m offering three different commission this year. The first is an 8.5x11 pencil drawing on Bristol board. The second is an 11x17 pencil drawing on Bristol board. The third is an 11x17 black and white drawing on colored paper. If you have questions about the subject matter, email first and we can discuss it.

Over the past couple of years, I've had several people come up and ask if I had a collectible card deck. I didn't think to much about it until DragonCon last year. I saw a few artists that had them and I thought they would make a great Kickstarter Reward item. The deck will have over Fifty paintings I have completed over the years. The Set will come packaged in it's own custom Tuck Box.

Playmats are another item I've been asked about at conventions. I wasn't to familiar with the items, but some friends enlightened me. Long story short, is they are 24x14 mousepads that card games are played upon. There are four to choose from. Snowfall, Before the Storm, Queens of Nubinora, and On the Warpath. These are only available as an Add On. To add a playmat or any add on, just make a pledge with one of the reward choices. Then simply add the amount of the Add On to your pledge amount. Please be sure to indicate your Add On in the survey at the end of the campaign. It really helps with the fulfillment process.

Included in the 2018 Yearbook is an eight page story featuring my dear friends, Yvonne and Randy Williams of Back to Earth Creations. At Memphis Comic and Fantasy Con last year, I was talking with Shannon, the owner of 901 Comics. He has stated publishing his own comics and I offered to do an eight page story for an anthology. Randy and Yvonne just happened to be set up next to him. I've been looking for reason to work on a project with Yvonne and Randy, so we came up with a small plotline and the story was born! The pages were inked by my buddy John Martin. He really did a great job!

There is no charge for shipping for all domestic rewards. International orders will have an additional shipping charge added. I’ve tried to make it simple this year. I weighed and measured each reward. Most of the international rates were with a dollar or two, so I took the lowest price and applied that rate to the reward. Canada was the only exception, as it was several dollars lower. If you any questions, please just send me a message.

For those of you who are long time fans, I really want to say Thank You! Your support and encouragement have allowed me to continue to grow at my craft. I am eternally grateful for your enthusiasm toward my work.

Ya’ll are the best!

Please take a look at the Pledge Rewards and see if one suits you. Even if you can't help financially, your help is still very needed. Please share this Kickstarter Campaign with your social media. Word of mouth advertising is the most effective advertising. Social media has made that so much easier. Any help you can give would be most appreciated!

Thank you all so much!

Risks and challenges

The challenges to this project are minimal. I have been shipping artwork a long time and I am used to packing securely. The books are all ready to go to the printer as soon as the Kickstarter project is completed. I have worked with this printer before and know them very well. It will take 3 to 4 weeks to complete the printing process. Of course, there are always challenges that come up during a project, but I have done my homework and am ready for those challenges when they occur.
Shipping:
All pledge amounts include USPS Media Mail shipping within the U.S. Shipping for international orders will receive an additional fee. International orders ship by USPS Priority Mail. Taxes and fees vary by country. Please be aware international orders may be required to pay a duty tax by your local postal station.
