About this project

"Worlds and Creatures: Art of Anthony Christou" is the first complete limited edition hardcover book of my best art from the last 5 years. My main passion is creating fantasy worlds, creatures and dragons. This book is a collection of the art that represents me.

About Anthony Christou
I am an illustrator, fine artist and concept artist. I have been running my business for five years and love it. Art and storytelling is my passion and I have been drawing, painting designing since I was a child.

What Art will be in the Book
The book will cover artworks from: publishing, video games, comic and film projects I have worked on. Art from personal projects, such as my comic book series Luminous Ages will also be in the book. Exclusive client work will be showcased only in this book!

I mainly work in the genre of fantasy but I also have a love for; horror, science fiction, mythology and public domain topics.

This is a project which means so much to me and represents a milestone in my career. I have added so much value to this book and some amazing Kickstarter only exclusive products.Thank you again sincerely for your support- it is YOU! who will make this book possible!

It is commonly asked how I create my art. Some of my artworks are completely created with Acrylic/Oil paints. I use markers for commissions. I also love digital painting and use several techniques.

Marker Illustrations
For those who want an original commission they can get a marker illustration like these examples on kickstarter now.

Specs on the Artbook: Hardcover, full colour, satin linen 157gsm paper. 100 pages of art and more. 2mm grey board for the cover. The supplier has sent us samples and the product looks amazing.

The stretch goals that have been prepared are amazing!
I also have been communicating with the supplier and if we hit stretch goals some amazing additions will be unlocked. I cannot reveal too much but I hope to have foil stamped limited edition prints if we hit a goal, plus more!

I am so grateful for your continued support. I am fully aware that it is you who makes my journey possible and amazing. Being an independent artist is incredibly fulfilling, you are all part of making this happen! You are all superstars!

 

Risks and challenges

The book is completed, all artworks are made for the 100 pages apart from commissions for this specific kickstarter. Once we have all funding and names of all the backers we can send the book to print.

We have chosen a printer overseas we trust the only delay would be printing time and also delivery time. The production and delivery time is roughly 60-90 days in total.

I have been printing comics, art books and prints for 3 years now and I have great suppliers and great turn around. The last kickstarter because we had a book supplier, we were able to send comics fast.

International customers who are getting the book signed and numbered by me on the early bird deals have to pay more for postage from Australia. This cost cannot be avoided and I have priced it exactly based on Australia Post fees. This applies to the 225 books that are signed and numbered.

Australians still get it posted at a great rate. Those who are purchasing books internationally but are not getting the first 225 that are numbered and signed still get a great postage rate, through our fulfillment centre.

Other than that I have no other risks associated with this project.
