We want to introduce you to Iván Sánchez, aka “Blocsanchez”, one of the members of HeraModels. We are thrilled to share with you his first sketchbook “Wasteland”. Within the last year, Iván has been working in the content of this book what wasn't easy to combine with his daily work of miniature concept artist in our small study. Iván is very passionate about traditional drawing, that is the reason why every design in this book is a pencil sketch except for the cover that is digital.
With this and our future projects, our objective is to create an editorial line of fantastic art. We decided we didn't want a typical sketchbook, collecting drawings from forgotten notebooks where you can find all types of characters; we wanted to make something personal and with an argumental line.
Then, after a lot of thinking, we decided to make a book collection of different races. “Wastelands” is the first chapter of the collection and embodies illustrations and sketches of barbaric warriors of the barren lands.
The original book contains 48 pages but with your help we hope this number keeps increasing. We have selected the best designs with more than 50 characters and we hope all of them can be published in the book. We want the book to be handy and user friendly that is why its size is 17x24cm (6,7”x9,5”). Through the campaign, we will unlock different rewards that will make possible to increase the number of pages of this book and will vive you the possibility to get exclusive products only in Kickstarters. In this campaign, you´ll not only get our sketchbook “Wastelands”, it will be possible to choose the option to get an original sketch made by Ivan inside your book or to get one of the original illustrations printed on it. Later we will explain the campaign more widely.
Later on we will explain every detail of the content in each pledge to make sure that you get what you really want. Besides, while the campaign goes on and we unlock other products we will update the content of each pledge.
For those who have chosen pledge #5 or #6 you could choose between one of the following original illustrations, you just need to send us an email echen you make the reservation with the number of the illustration that you prefer. You can see the images in a bigger size in our website .
You can add these exclusive products to your contribution, to help us achieve our goal. You can see the images of busts in a bigger size in our website .
As we say before, our objective is to be able to create a fantastic art publishing, in HeraModels’ study we have lots of ideas, but sadly we don´t count with economical resources to accomplish them.
The income of this project will allow us to pay the costs of production and will give us the possibility to invest more time in our next book. We hope that, with your support, this book will be the first of more to come.
Getting up to this point wasn't easy, we had to work very hard to achieve it, that is why we would like to thank every person who take part of this project in any way. Without any particular order:

Risks and challenges
We have worked very hard during the last year, taking a daily extra time. Most part of the work is done, but as everything we do in the study, we want to keep giving love to this project with more illustrations and sketches, and keep improving it to feel it more ours.
The challenge now is the printing, that we hope it meet the deadline with no delays. The risk, if the most of you choose the pledge with Ivan’s original sketch (don't misunderstand me, this option is great!), is that this make Ivan to take more time to draw them all.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
