Stretch goal, anyone?
Hey everyone! My name is Mike Hawthorne and I'm an illustrator, story artist, and educator.
I've done work for clients like Marvel Entertainment, DC, Epic Games, Fox Films and Illumination Films, just to name a few. You more than likely know my work from Deadpool,and Spider-man.
I'm also an educator teaching visual development and anatomy at Pennsylvania College of Art and Design.
BUT in addition to all that, I draw a lot of stuff that doesn't have a true outlet. I have tons of art accumulated from years of sketching, figure drawing, commissions, and developmental work just waiting for a home!
As a way to better share my work with you I'd like to launch a yearly art book project called All City!
That's where you come in!
All City Vol. 0!
All City Vol. 0 is a 48 page full colour hardback book measuring 8.5" by 11". The book will collect years of my art from my sketchbooks, commissions, studies, as well as some art from the renowned art collective Comic Twart!
Created with series of art books in mind, the vast array of subjects will appeal to art fans of all kinds! This is the first time the collection has been available for purchase and is being launched exclusively here.
I also intend to use All City as a way of sharing my art-making process by not just putting finished pieces in the book but showing samples of the various stages that go into making that piece!
This book will NOT be available ANYWHERE unless we can succeed at our fundraising goals! I'm excited for this book to launch a YEARLY art series!
I'll also be offering serious art incentives for collectors from all walks of life! Sketched-in editions of All City, unique Deadpool sketch covers, even original comic pages and covers!
(See me draw one of these Sketchcovers in the video below)
I'm proud of this book and to show that I want to give you a chance to test-drive it!
Just keep in mind, that the 18 page PDF is just the tip of the iceberg! I'll be adding 30 NEW pages of art to the Print edition, for a grand total of 48 pages of art!
I hope you'll help me properly launch this series of art books with All City Vol. 0!
Risks and challenges
As always the coordinating of printing, shipping and packing is a concern, but fresh off the Anatomy Book Kickstarter, we're confident we can turn this one around just as smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
