Here at Fanbase Press, we strive to provide an outlet for up-and-coming creators to promote and showcase their incredible works. With thousands of creators utilizing crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make those works a reality, we will highlight these talented creators and their noteworthy campaigns through #CrowfundingFridays! We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!
Project #1: Georges Jeanty’s Sketchbook 2019
What it’s about: Georges Jeanty is an Eisner Award-winning, New York Times-bestselling comic book illustrator, whose first major work was Marvel Comics’ BISHOP: THE LAST X-MAN (1999). Currently, his work can be seen in AGE OF X-MAN: THE X-TREMISTS, part of Marvel’s “Enter the Age of X-Man” story arc. Along with his work on many Marvel and DC Comics titles, Georges is known for the critically acclaimed, sixties-era graphic novel THE AMERICAN WAY (2006) written by Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley and published by DC Comics, its sequel THE AMERICAN WAY: THOSE ABOVE AND THOSE BELOW (2017), and being a regular artist for Dark Horse Comics’ official continuation of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and SERENITY (2007-2018).
While you may have seen his work in your local comic book shop or bookstore, not everybody is lucky enough to live near a comic book convention and get their hands on an original sketch or a collection of his work. That’s why – for the first time in OVER A DECADE, he’s decided to collect 46 of his most amazing sketches so that anyone can get their hands on them.
