Jeannie L Paske, creator of Obsolete World (blog), has started a Kickstarter project for her artbook Wisdom For Debris. It collects illustrations based on characters from Obsolete World. The art pieces are beautiful, surreal and imaginary. Reminds me slightly of works from Shaun Tan.
Brick by Brick is a comic book on mastering your artistic craft. It collects essays which are drawn in comics that talk about the creative process, things like setting goals, fighting procrastination, improving, dealing with failure. The presentation format is quite similar to Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and Zen Pencils.
This is a book targeted at artists, or just about anyone with a creative soul.
The Art Of Big 'O' is an artbook collection of fantasy and fantastic artwork of the artists of Big 'O' publishing company. Some of the artists included are H.R. Giger, Roger Dean, Jim Burns and more. The book's going to be a 184-page hardcover.
e338 is an epic collection of personal work by master artist Loïc Zimmermann (VFX Concept Artist on Thor, Iron Man 3, True Grit & more). I see his work occasionally on 3DTotal Publishing books. It's good to see a personal artbook coming out.
The 152-page artbook will have concept art, 3D, digital sculpting, photography, mixed media and more.
ARTCADE is quite an interesting book that Tim Nicholls is trying to produce. It's a book of artworks from game machines from over the last 40 years! Many of the artworks from those original arcade game cabinets have faded so much that they had to be colour corrected. It's requires a crazy amount of work.
