The Art of: Kickstarter läuft

Das Buchprojekt von Dave Taylor ist erfolgreich auf Kickstarter gestartet.

Und darum geht es:

DT THE ART OF Volumes 1 3 1


For more than 30 years I have spent a great deal of time talking with hundreds of artists who paint miniatures – for fun, for a living, for relaxation – and I am always intrigued to learn more about their philosophies, approaches, and processes. Some of these artists have spent decades refining their technical skills, while others bring their “traditional” art training to the miniatures world. Some draw inspiration from the most unusual of places, while others find it in popular culture turned on its head.

THE ART OF… series of books will highlight fantastic miniatures artists from around the world, bringing their thoughts and passions to stand alongside their magnificent and inspirational work. We’ll be featuring both individuals and groups in this series, as we explore innovative approaches, studied refinements, and even tangential influences.

These books will be both a celebration of the artist and their art, as well as an opportunity for them to present their thoughts on particular topics and let the world know why they approach their art the way they do. These will not be “How To” books, but rather complements to their existing outlets work that the artists are already doing.

This is just the beginning of THE ART OF… series. With so many wonderful miniatures artists, there is so much potential to explore.

Das sind die Pledges:

    • Ja, geht mir auch so, shipping killt momentan die freude bei internationalem engagement. geht mir leider auch außerhalb des miniaturen hobbies so. frustrierend.
