This is it, folks! Down to the last 2 days of the kickstarter campaign, and I’ve got some exciting news to share!
You know him as Deathstroke from the Arrow TV Series.
You know him as Azog the Defiler from The Hobbit Trilogy.
And you know him from AMC’s Spartacus TV series as the Champion of Capua…Crixus, the Undefeated Gaul!
That’s right, actor Manu Bennett has agreed to write the introduction to the kickstarter book Heroic Proportions: A Book of Heroic Illustrations!!! So here’s what we got going on…
The book will be hardback with 40-50 brand new original pieces of finished art chosen BY YOU, including various pencil sketches and headshots.
You can choose from over 300 characters for me to draw.
Introduction by actor Manu Bennett, with cover art featuring Manu as Crixus from Spartacus.
Each book ordered through the kickstarter campaign will be signed by me with an accompanying certificate of authenticity from Genuine COA.
Each book ordered through the kickstarter campaign will include a FREE sketch on the inside cover.
I will be donating 50-100 books to a children’s charity or children’s hospital (TBD) on behalf of all backers, as well as possibly doing some charity signings/donations with Manu (TBD).
There’s options to receive the original art from the book.
Understand that I rarely, if ever, do commissions at shows anymore. I rarely, if ever, do commissions in between shows anymore. I’m either too busy at shows, or too busy with professional gigs in between shows. So this is one of the only ways currently to get original pieces of art from me, and to be able to contribute on what’s going to be a really fantastic book. You have a little over 48 hours. The gauntlet has been thrown. This doesn’t happen without YOU.
Now…SHALL WE BEGIN???? Go to:

THANK YOU NEW BACKERS!!!
I’ll be donating 50-100 copies of my book of heroic illustrations to a children’s charity or children’s hospital on behalf of all backers if we can get the book funded in the next 5 days.
