Let's Print Georges' Sketchbook (2019 Edition)

Comics Artist Georges Jeanty
Comics Artist Georges Jeanty

GEORGES is an Eisner Award-winning, New York Times bestselling comic book illustrator, whose first major work was Marvel Comics’ BISHOP: THE LAST X-MAN (1999).

Currently, his work can be seen in AGE OF X-MAN: THE X-TREMISTS, part of Marvel’s “Enter the Age of X-Man” story arc.

Along with his work on many Marvel and DC Comics titles, Georges is known for the critically acclaimed, sixties-era graphic novel THE AMERICAN WAY (2006) written by Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley and published by DC Comics, its sequel THE AMERICAN WAY: THOSE ABOVE AND THOSE BELOW (2017), and being a regular artist for Dark Horse Comics’ official continuation of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and SERENITY (2007-2018).

While you may have seen his work in your local comic book shop or bookstore, not everybody is lucky enough to live near a comic-con and get their hands on an original sketch or a collection of his work. That's why - for the first time in OVER A DECADE, he's decided to collect 46 of his most amazing sketches so that anyone can get their hands on them. The purpose of this campaign is to raise enough funds to print and ship the sketchbook and other rewards.

Georges has brought so many great stories to life, including "Buffy," "Serenity," and "Batwoman."

Who is Helping Georges with This Project?

Hi, there! We are Kaba Lounge - the digital home and hub of all things Georges. We curate his online artwork, communicate with fans on social media, and create sweet merch - including this amazing sketchbook. If you're a fan of Georges or any of the dozens of characters he's brought to life, then consider yourself a member of the Lounge, too!

Collectively, Lounge members have backed a bunch of kickstarter projects, and some of us have run successful campaign for comics and other fun stuff, for which Georges has generously contributed time, energy, and even original art. 

Why Now?

In recent years, Georges has printed a few specialty sketchbooks to sell at cons, like the ones focused specifically on his work for the "Buffy" and "Serenity" franchises. But it's been over a decade since he's collected a variety of his work into a sketchbook that reflects his interests across the comics and sci-fi spectrum. Having seen the treasure trove of original art he's kept over the years, we feel like this 46-page sketchbook isn't only long overdue, it's also just the tip of the iceberg.

So, What's In This Sketchbook?

Inside this 46-page sketchbook, you'll find a curated selection of Georges' masterful musings from the past decade or more. Each page will feature one amazing sketch that fills up the entire page. Below is just a small sample of the pieces that Georges plans to include...

What Other Rewards Can I Get?

But why stop at the sketchbook, right? This is a Kickstarter campaign after all, and you expect some pretty amazing rewards. Well, Georges has 'em! Backers at different levels (described to the right of this page) will receive the following awesome pieces, depending on backer level.

Original Comic Pages

Comic book artists get to keep the original artwork they draw for comic books, whether those are covers or interior pages - and Georges has tons of amazing pieces! Early backers at the $250 level will receive an original comic art page, in addition to their sketchbook and other rewards. But hurry - Georges is only offering a limited number of these!

Original Sketches INSIDE Your Sketchbook

For backers at the $100 level, Georges will create an original sketch inside the front cover of your sketchbook! Artists like Georges typically sell these types of sketches in person at conventions, but for fans who can't always make it to a con, this is a great way to get your hands on original artwork. These will typically be a bust, and YOU get to choose the character!

Limited-Edition Prints

Backers at the $75 level will get a limited-edition 8x10 signed print of one of Georges' drawings. We don't know which drawing this will be yet - maybe we'll put it to a vote during the campaign, and let YOU decide!

Stickers and Bookmarks

Backers at the $40 level will receive a sticker and a bookmark, custom-made for this sketchbook campaign. Georges will only print one run of these, so they are destined to become collectors' items.

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter projects often find cost estimating to be a challenge, but luckily, we already have all of Georges' sketches ready to go. We're laying them out in a nice 46-page, perfect-bound book, and we've conservatively estimated all the costs for printing the books, creating the rewards, and shipping everything.

Some of us a Kaba Lounge have run successful Kickstarter campaigns before, and we are fully prepared to fulfill the rewards for the Georges sketchbook.
