PDF File, 112 pages, full color
Successfully kickstarted in September of 2016, the first illustrated anthology from Boneshaker Press showcases the work of twenty talented artists from around the globe. Every artist was asked to choose a creature that inspired them, and then to develop four pages of content from that experience.
The first two pages include a short piece of narrative text—we’ve got everything from short stories and poetry to log books and excerpts—accompanied by a gorgeous full page, full color illustration.
The remaining two pages contain a variety of behind-the-scenes material. There are initial sketches, creature designs, thumbnails, value comps, and color comps all coupled with insight into each artist's creative journey.
We wanted to do something different with Encounters with the Imaginary. Instead of focusing on technique, we shine a light on aspects of the artist’s life that don’t get much attention: the hidden obstacles between an idea and its execution, the constant struggle to improve, and the joy found in artistic growth.
This is a digital PDF intended to be read on a mobile device, e-reader, or computer. Please note that you will not receive a physical book.
