Kickstarting the ArtOrder Invitational

How would you like a private look into the creative journals of all your favorite concept artists and fantasy painters? Award-winning art director Jon Schindehette is kickstarting an art book with work by artists from a variety of backgrounds.

Each artist gets a spread, and they can combine words and images any way they want. Here's the spread by Spectrum Grand Master Gerald Brom.

This one is by John Harris. The goal is to give everyone a chance to lure the viewer into their own creative vortex.

My spread has the sketches and ideas that led up to the giant robot painting "Aftermath."

Participating artists include Iain McCaigAllen WilliamsLaurie Lee BromGerald BromSean MurrayKarla OrtizSterling HundleyCraig Elliott Bill Carman,Jon Foster Ron Lemen Vanessa Lemen Mark A.

Jon is doing this to benefit the artists and to give the backers a thing of true beauty and mystery.
This is the kick-ass campaign that you'll be glad you kickstarted, and if you miss out, you'll kick yourself later.

That's a big ol' list of most of my favorite artists.
I'll definitely be pitching in for at least the trade copy.

Also, here's the direct link! It wasn't in the post.
