Phantasmagoria - Fantasy Art Sketchbook

$7,895

Book preorder continues on Etsy!

I'm Kickstarting my first ever sketchbook!

Perfect bound softcover books measure 5"x7". I will continue to create new pieces for the duration of this project, so I've yet to finalize the page count, but the book will feature at least 50 pages of my favorite sketches and drawings of 2017. 

Phantasmagoria will be a limited edition book, and will come signed, numbered and dated. Once the first run of books sell out, I will not do another printing. Edition size will be determined after funding.

Microcosms is now unlocked as a book choice! This full color book will collect at least 50 of my favorite 2.5"x3.5" ACEO paintings at life size on 4"x5" pages.

Sample pages - 2.5"x3.5" images on 4"x5" pages
Sample pages - 2.5"x3.5" images on 4"x5" pages

 

Backers pledging for all rewards below that include the sketchbook may substitute "Microcosms" instead, if they wish, the post wrap-up survey will ask for preferences.

I've added new reward tiers for those who would like to switch over and receive both books. Backers pledging at limited reward tiers (Remarque sketches and up) may add another (non remarque) book to their pledge for $10. 

All rewards will include PDF downloads of both books.

Risks and challenges

This is my first foray into book publishing, but I'm keeping this project on the small side to ensure things go smoothly, so it should be a pretty low risk project.

I've budgeted for a hard copy proof to ensure good print quality. I expect most if not all print and non remarque book rewards to be out before the end of the year, but estimated delivery dates have been extended in case of setbacks.
