Good evening El Moochadores! I was recently introduced to a Kickstarter project seeking to fund a new collection of art by students, and alumni, of Ringling College of Art and Design. The book is a collection of 25 artists conceptual and design work and features insights into their creative process. Since we’re attempting (and succeeding) to be a web site with a focus on imagination and creativity, I thought I’d pass the word along so that we can help them meet their goals. Here are the details:
The book’s aim is to help launch the careers of aspiring Visual Development Artists by showcasing their work alongside Ringling alumni who have become seasoned professionals. This art-book will give you access into the creative process and contains original ideas for many never before seen character and prop designs as well as environments, vehicles, storyboards and color-scripts from these emerging artists! There will only be one print run of this book…this is a rare opportunity to not only invest in the careers of these up-and-coming artists, but also to get a limited edition copy of this book.
There’s still plenty of time to get online and help contribute. The project has several great rewards which include everything from original prints to t-shirts! I’ve posted a small example of some of the art (as found on the kickstarter page) from the book, but go check it out for yourself and contribute to help some starving (they’re probably not starving, but who knows…) artist!
