Red Pin-Up Book by Andrew Tarusov

$51,280

868

Hey everyone! My name is Andrew Tarusov. Based out of Los Angeles, CA, I have worked for Disney, FOX, Maxim, Cosmopolitan and others. Perhaps you are already familiar with some of my series such as Game of Thrones Pin-Up, Disney Princess and Villains, Cartoon Characters that Got Old or Disney in Tim Burton Style (More images, you can see here). It has always been a dream of mine to release my own art book. Like, you aren’t even a real artist until you have your own book of pictures! And now, I’m finally closer to that point than ever before. I want to publish my own book and send it to you! It’s gonna be really cool!

The book will include all of Tarusov’s best work. The artist sorted each piece, and then describes everything about it in his own words. Additionally he includes a short autobiography and the story of what lies behind every picture series. (The text will be printed in both Russian and English because it will be selling internationally as well). Andrew Tarusov’s work is accessible to all audiences, and he already has a huge following. It’s no wonder Tarusov’s resume is so vast. Everyone loves his work, and everyone wants to know more about it. 

Included with the book are QR-codes which are built into some images. You will be able to simply scan one with your smartphone to receive access to the actual drawing process video of the artwork or animation. (See attached example below for reference).

 Dimensions for the comprehensive hardcover book will be 210x297 mm (A4). And the offset print selected by Tarusov will only make everything look better.

 Great Dean Yeagle will write a foreword for the book!

 

 

 

 

 

New stretch goal added! When I get $50 000 I'll release a deck of playing cards! It will be another Kickstarter project and all art book backers will get the deck with special "Early Bird Discount" and FREE PDF versions of the deck and Kinky Art book! Yes, it will be with the art book too (not so big as this one, but nice.. actually, I don't know yet). No hardcore, just little bit more playful!


Special thanks to:  
Project-Nerd Publishing for supporting my ideas,
Great Pin-Up Artist Dean Yeagle
and Nathan Aardvark (Cool tutorials is here)

Let’s become friends!
