NOMADS - An Art Book by Shane Pierce

$19,037

239

The over 20 years I've been working as an artist has been very "nomadic" for me. From graphic design to architectural illustrator to animator to concept art for video games and so on... all the while oil painting has been my passion. I love making marks with a brush! Stranger in a strange land, dark traveler, detectives, noir type occult work, one man against the odds, unlikely heroes - these are all themes that have interested me over the years. NOMADS will be filled with these ideas!

NOMADS is a collection of conceptual, character driven paintings, that were started as a way to realize and drive out a narrative for further storytelling projects. As the paintings were developed they eventually became known as "NOMADS" and as each painting was explored, they in turn helped to further define a story and characters for a graphic novel as well. (currently being worked on for a future release!) The NOMADS art book will be a limited run, 7"x7" 40 page hardcover book.

I need your help and support to make this book happen and want to take this opportunity to thank all of you that have enjoyed my work and have given me positive support over the years. Painting for me is such a solitary endeavor and I still get shocked when people show support. I would like to say I am forever grateful to be able to pursue my art for a living! This is something I could never do without your support. So again, thank you so much!

UPDATE 8-5-2015-->New Video!  A demonstration on how I block out my paintings!  Please check it out:

ADD-ONS

If you would like to add additional items, go to the "manage my pledge" button on the right side and add the money for your item (extra art book) to your pledge. You will receive a survey when the campaign closes and you can tell us what you added. You can order as many add-ons as you would like.

__________________________________________________________________________________

SHIPPING INFO & RETURN POLICY

All pledges have U.S. shipping and handling already included!

International backers, please add additional stated amounts in each pledge for international shipping and handling to either Canada or everywhere else in the world. We did a country-by-country breakdown of the packages and approximate weights to determine this average amount.

To add the extra amount: When you select your pledge, a box will pop up displaying your current total pledge amount with the options for shipping outside the United States.

All sales are final. Packages may be insured by your request, and all claims for damaged packages/goods must be made with the shipping carrier.

Risks and challenges

The NOMADS book is ready to go. All the artwork has been created, all photography is taken and the layout is complete. Printing will be the only task out of my direct control. But, the printing company comes vey highly recommended and has been great working with so far. Still the fact is you never know if there will be issues or even delays at the printer. I'll keep you up-to-date if there are any delays and give the reason why and what to expect. Printing will be the ONLY item outsourced. All project management, including shipping, will be handled in-house. I’m confident that, if funded, all pledges will be 100% fulfilled.
