Update: 

Thank you everyone for your support! If you are unable to back this  kickstarter at this time, not to worry! Books will be available at my Storenvy site (http://juliedillonart.storenvy.com/) after all the kickstarter backers' books have been mailed out this summer. If you would like to be informed when the new books go on sale, or would just like to know about the release of any other new projects I'm working on in the future, please feel free to sign up for my mailing list, and I will keep you updated! 

Imagined Realms Book 2 : Earth and Sky

Gateways to other worlds, ancient cybernetic gods and their descendants, striding giants formed from stone and wind, daring quests, small discoveries, and humanity's strengthening connection between earth and stars. This art book offers a glimpse of worlds and creatures that one can only imagine.  

About

My name is Julie Dillon, and I am a Hugo Award winning scifi and fantasy artist. "Imagined Realms Book 2: Earth and Sky" is my 2nd self published art book. I had so much fun with the successful launch of my first art book, I immediately started creating art for the 2nd book, and I'm very excited about how it's turned out. I have created 18 brand new illustrations for this book that blend science fiction, myth, and wonder.  

"Imagined Realms Book 2: Earth and Sky" will be a beautiful 48 page 9x12 hardcover book on thick glossy paper, featuring 18 brand new illustrations, plus sketches and stories to go with each piece.

You can purchase a book through this kickstarter campaign, and after all the kickstarter orders have been fulfilled, I will make books available for purchase online at my storenvy shop (most likely in August 2015). 

In addition to the printed book, I'm also offering digital downloads, posters, prints, giclees, and canvas prints.

Individual prints will be available through INPRNT in limited sizes after all kickstarter orders have been fulfilled (again, most likely in August 2015). 

 *For the commission reward level: You will have the right to use the work as a book cover (ebook, paperback, hardcover, audiobook) if you choose. I retain the right to sell prints of the image if I choose. In terms of subject matter, I will not do anything pornographic, or anything that features violence against women or misogynistic content. Otherwise I'm pretty flexible. :) But I reserve the right to refuse the commission and refund your money if needed.

Stretch Goals: 

$15,000: The PDF version of "Imagined Realms Book 1" will be added to the digital rewards for everyone's order. 

$20,000: every print order will receive a "thank you" postcard featuring an exclusive new art piece that will not be posted anywhere else. 

More TBD?

The giclees and canvas prints will be made through Sacramento Giclee. The artwork for the print packs will be printed through www.Catprint.com. And the books themselves will be printed through PrintNinja. I have used all three of these services for Imagined Realms Book 1, and I am happy with the results and confident in the quality. You can take a look through the updates of my first kickstarter to see how the books and giclees turned out. And as you can see, people seemed very happy with the final result. Book 2 will be even bigger! 

All the artwork in this book will be available to license for use as cover art by independent authors and small publishers, for those interested.

Risks and challenges

I successfully completed the fulfillment for my first Kickstarter project on time, and I am confident that this will go just as smoothly. The only potential risk is in shipping delays from my printer, but I have tried to account for that possibility when estimating shipping times, and if there are any delays, I will keep everyone updated so you know when your books and artwork are on the way.
