Hey everyone! Any of you remember how I posted a journal entry about maybe making an artbook back in 2011? And then later in 2013? I'm so happy I can finally post a journal entry that isn't just about me speculating on the possibilities - the artbook is finally in the works!! It's going to be called "The Art of Loish - a look behind the scenes", and the Kickstarter was launched last week! Here's a mockup:

A mock-up of the Art of Loish book

It's already far beyond the original funding goal (yay!), but you can still snag a copy on Kickstarter if you want one! If you prefer to wait (or don't have access to a credit card and prefer to pay with paypal), the book will be available through other channels like Amazon and the 3Dtotal book store after it's released. All of the special tiers ran out really fast, but you can still get the book plus a few other goodies!

The book will feature my artwork, but also a lot of background information. It will cover my thought process, techniques and how I learned to draw. It will also have some tutorials and tips, plus exclusive art. I've been working on it for a while and will be dedicated to putting it together full-time for the coming month (in fact, I'm writing a tutorial as we speak!), and I'm teaming up with 3Dtotal who specialize in digital art books and will be doing the printing, packaging+shipping, etc. If you're interested, please go check out the kickstarter and pre-order your copy there!!

Thanks so much for reading!! And for more frequent updates, please check out my facebook page, which will be updated first whenever there's any new developments.

i love your art. i create digital paintings too :) but i take photos of my sketchblock and merge the final result together so it looks like traditional art because i love the textures which you can have with real paper and pencils :)
but i think there is no market for my style

for what it's worth, i think your style looks great.

Hi. I know you're probably really busy, but I just want to say thank you. You make me want to draw, you inspire me. Your art is some of the best I've seen; and I'm that kind of person who sits around, browsing around DA for hours on end and goes to art museeums on my own (which seems to be rare for people my age). Your art simply blows my mind and makes me wonder why you aren't more famous for your works.
So yeah. That's all I wanted to say.
Thank you.

Telling you your art is amazing is like telling a Suicide Girl she's soooooo hot...but I don't really know what else to say. 

I was hoping to find an Audrey Hepburn on your fan art gallery but alas, there was none. Think you would ever consider doing one? I think she would look amazeballs in your style :)

Thanks for being awesome

The indomitable Loish! I hope you know you're kinda a celebrity around these parts. ;) It's neat for me to browse other peoples' galleries and think, "This was inspired by loish.. and this... and this..." Whenever you try a new technique or color scheme, it ripples through the community and spawns a thousand knock-offs. You're incredibly inspiring and I really look up to you!
