Hi Everyone! My name is Rob Tokarz and I draw people and work as an Art Director for a living. I moved from Chicago to Los Angeles 12 years ago in order to pursue a creative life and have now been an artist for as far back as I can remember. What started off as copying Superman from comic books and trading drawings of The Lion King for pogs became a career in film and as a fine artist!
Two years ago I began working on a series of figure drawings that would develop into a Booty Series. What started as a good laugh gradually took over my Instagram and started to brighten other people's days as well! I've had so much fun collaborating in those two years that now I'm looking forward to getting the finished sketches bound into a book.
For my MAKE/100, I'm creating A Booty Book: Volume 1 which will consist of over 100 pages of black and white sketches of booties, derrieres, and tookusi in all shapes and sizes. High-quality pages printed on archival super smooth paper bound in softcover, A Booty Book intends to elevate my cheeky drawings for your coffee table or as a gift for the aficionado in your life.
To help me publish this first run of books, and to further celebrate the subject matter, I'm offering (4) New, Limited-Edition, Full Color, Signed and Numbered "Booty Prints" for supporters who pledge $15 or more.
If you opt for the Kickstarter Book Package - all four prints will be included!
Thank you for your support!
Follow along on the progress of this and many other projects:

Thank you so much for coming this far and helping out in whatever way you can. Can't wait to give you some creative inspiration or at least a good chuckle!

Risks and challenges
The Risk and Challenges for me are 100% on making sure both the prints and the book itself is at the highest level of quality I can make it and ensure that it gets to you fully intact! The biggest challenge for me will be making sure the logistics work flawlessly and you get your book and prints beautifully presented.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
