Cartoon characters before coffee. An Illustrated Art Book

Hi there! I'm Sam Milham and I'm an illustrator and graphic designer from a small coastal town in Australia. I'm working in the creative industry doing what I love, and in my spare time I draw things.

I've recently completed a series of work called 'Caffeine Junkies' that was shared across the internet on all kinds of blogs and sites, including Robert Downey Jr's facebook page - much to my shock!

I've decided to turn these crazy illustrations into a book with your help.

I've had the pleasure to be published across a wide range of websites, blogs and local magazines, with a small selection shown below.

 

 

 

I'm putting a book together about my latest series 'Caffeine Junkies' which depicts famous pop culture icons and cartoon characters before they've had their caffeine fix in the morning.

The book will be perfect for coffee tables and bookshelves. Measuring in at 20x20cm (8x8") with 52 full colour gloss pages and a 300gsm perfect bound gloss print cover. Super fancy.

Ships worldwide! $10AUD inside Australia, $20AUD outside Australia.

Risks and challenges

For International Shipping: Please be forewarned that shipping costs could be substantial due to international shipping rates. We will do our best to get you the lowest, fairest shipping rate possible and not charge any more than it costs to ship your package.

As with all such projects, there are certain risks that something totally unexpected could happen (especially in regards to printing and shipping) and the book could be delayed. In such an unlikely case, backers will be notified and given updates on the reasons for the delay.
