UPDATE APRIL 24, 2018

 If your reward includes a print you can choose any one print from my inventory!

This book will contain over 100 pages of original art, commissions, travel sketches, and commentary that I've done over the last couple years.

This is the first time all of this has been collected in one place! The book is all laid out and ready to go to print. The back inside cover has a space for an original sketch and every book will have a quick inked sketch inside!

 I've included some of my favorite commissions and sketches as well as behind the scenes images of the process of making comic book covers and artwork.

Rewards range from digital copies to me drawing a custom cover for your project! Everyone pledging $25 and up will get a signed copy of the book. In the back inside cover I've left a space for a hand-drawn sketch. Each backer who gets a book will receive a sketch inside!

Other rewards include 9 x 12 or 11 x 17 commissions.

I'm also offering original art from some of my published work. This includes GI JOE and TRANSFORMERS original comic art pages.

Risks and challenges

The book is all put together and pretty much ready for print. The only time consuming part will be the rewards that involve larger commissions or custom cover work. I've set the fulfillment date as October to give myself ample time to get them all done.
