Reference Book For Comic Artists Has Its Sights On An Indiegogo Record

Project title: 21 Draw

Campaign live on IndieGogo: May 01 – May 31

Hi Bleeding Cool!

The 21 Draw art project launched last week on IndieGogo. After only 3 days the project was funded with over $60,000 and is still rising. We are set to break the Indiegogo art record and we want your help to do it.

The book is drawn by 100 top industry professionals and provides references for character types for comics, games and cartoons. We have big names like Steve Rude, Ariel Olivetti, Ed Benes, Artgerm, Kim Jung Gi and loads more.

We're big bleeding fans of Bleeding Cool. If your readers help us hit our goal of $100,000 by Sunday night this weekend, we will include a limited edition spread in the book, specifically for Bleeding Cool contributors. You readers tell us which artist they want to draw the spread and what they want them to draw, and we'll get them to do it. We love wacky ideas – a fat hippo in a kimono showing its ass or a drunk fairy with a moustache are all fair game. The coolest idea will be chosen by us and the artist with the most votes draws it. We'll also include a title on the spread stating that Bleeding Cool fans are Bleeding Cool or something along those lines.


The book is  a really fun project and there is a lot of excitement in the industry around it. We also have a standby list of 70 artists waiting to join the project, and the more funding the project gets the more artists we can add.
