Have you ever wondered what it would be like to own an art book where each artist had the entire free reign on its content? Your favourite artists unleashed – seeing into their minds and souls without the limitations of a guided theme or aim. More interestingly, what if I told you that you had up until Friday June 3, 2016 to help this become a reality?
I recently came across the current Kickstarter campaign by ArtOrder, a US publishing firm who focus on supporting artists in particular. Their Invitational, The Journal art book, hooked me instantly as a rare opportunity for the masses to get behind a unique and personal collaboration by over 60 artists from around the world…so what are you waiting for?

Galen Dara – City on Tentacles
This is how The Journal began, one man’s dream featuring a collection of over 60 masterful artists, from various genres and industries. 2 years in the making it features true industry veterans, as well as young guns that are just breaking in the field. The theme follows an unguided and uncensored insight into the artist’s approach to their piece. Every artist is going to create a double page spread, for which they are given complete artistic and creative freedom, in order to bring closer their creation and thought process for their work. A unique and exotic mix of flavors and stories, just like the artists themselves.” – Jon Schindehette, Founder of ArtOrder.
