Thanks Everyone - the Campaign is now finished, but you can order the book here


IT’S ART and Marc Simonetti are proud to present Marc’s first ART BOOK : Coverama


IT'S ART et Marc Simonetti sont heureux de vous annoncer le premier Art Book de Marc!


 Who’s Marc Simonetti?


Marc Simonetti is a French illustrator who has illustrated many great Fantasy and Sci-Fi books, such as George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire and Terry Pratchett’s «Discworld» Novels. He’s has also worked for video game companies like (EA, Ubisoft, Activision, Sony...) and worked as a concept artist and color key artist on advertisements and long feature films. www.marcsimonetti.com


 Marc Simonetti est un illustrateur français qui a illustré nombre de formidables livres de fantasy et de science fiction, parmi lesquels «Le Trône de Fer» de GRR Martin et «Les Annales du Disque Monde» de Terry Pratchett. Il a également travaillé en tant que Concept Artist et artiste couleur pour le jeu vidéo ( EA, activision, sony, ubisoft...) la publicité et le cinéma.


Marc Simonetti


 What’s inside the Art Book?


The hardcover Art Book will have around 240 pages printed on high quality paper, and will be full of illustrations. The text will be in both English and French.


Their subjects will cover the Game of Thrones books, The Disc World , Lovecraft’s worlds, Fantasy and Scifi books, video games and advertisements, personal works, and several "Making Of" made especially for the book.


Qu’y aura t’il dans le Art Book?


Ce sera un Livre à couverture rigide, avec environ 240 pages, imprimé sur du papier de haute qualité, rempli d’illustrations, en français et en anglais. Les sujets aborderont les univers du Trône de Fer, du Disque Monde, de Lovecraft, la fantasy, la Science fiction, mes illustrations pour le jeu vidéo et la publicité, ainsi que mes travaux personnels, et bien sûr mes méthodes de travail, avec des pas à pas explicatifs.


Marc Simonetti


 You will enjoy a unique sneak peek on the art process as well and some never seen sketches.


 Vous aurez un point de vue unique sur les procédés de création ainsi que des croquis inédits.


Marc Simonetti


 Some illustrations will have a link to their online video making of. I will do at least 4 original images, including the book cover art and their full Making Of, explained in text and in online videos, like the one below :


Certaines des illustrations auront un lien vers leur vidéo de making of. 4 illustrations originales, dont la couverture du Art book, seront réalisées en ligne et seront déclinées en vidéos et expliquées pas à pas dans le texte.


LIVE



 Some illustrations will be made directly with authors that I admire, as it’s a book about covers & cover art. I want to share the full process with you including the relationship with the writers.


Certaines des illustrations seront faites directement avec des auteurs que j’admire, que je souhaite associer à ce livre. J’aimerais ainsi vous montrer tout le processus de création d’une illustration, incluant la relation avec les auteurs.


Marc Simonetti



LIVE


All the videos will be available to everyone interested, and will be done in live, and can be watched here


 Les vidéos seront disponibles pour tous ceux qui sont intéressés et seront faites en direct, en ligne, accessibles via ce lien



Marc Simonetti


 The cover art shown in picture example is not the final one, the illustration will be made online too!


 L’illustration de couverture n’est pas encore réalisée, il ne s’agit ici pour l’instant que d’une illustration temporaire, l’illustration finale sera réalisée en ligne également!


Coverama



 The funding of the project will condition the number of  books that will be printed, and the higher we get the more goodies and art prints you’ll have. I’m going to share material related to this book all along the funding process, so stay tuned!


 Le financement du projet va conditionner le nombre de Art Books imprimés et également les bonus et goodies que vous serez amenés à recevoir. Je partagerai avec vous de nombreuses informations et nouvelles tout au long de la campagne de financement, restez donc à l’affut!


Marc Simonetti


 Many thanks to It’s Art for choosing my Art Book to be the first project funded here.


 Un grand merci à It’s Art d’avoir choisi mon Art Book comme premier projet!

    Marc are there specific subject matters for the 8X12 20×30 Prints? Trying to determine the level of support

    • Simonetti Marc

      Ray,

      The 8x 12 will be the cover art of the book (the city scape in the night, not finished yet)

      For the 20×30 prints there will be the choice, between the cover art, and all the illustrations made for the book, and maybe some of previous works.

    Hop, je viens de voir que GRR Martin à fait de la pub pour ton crowdfunding ce matin sur son Not a Blog.

    Je ne savais pas du tout que tu avais travaillé aussi sur Wild Cards. Encore bravo pour toute tes illus ;)
    Est-ce que c’est toi qui est responsable de faire les couvertures française des tomes de Wild Cards ? (dont le premier est censé sortir le mois prochain)

    • Simonetti Marc

      Bonjour Thomas!

      Merci de ton message :)
      Non, je ne suis pas responsable des couvertures françaises de wild cards, je n’étais même pas au courant de la sortie du premier en France)

      • Thomas Joly

        Félicitation pour avoir réussi, Marc ;)

        Je viens de lire ta récente interview sur la garde de nuit et tu parles de faire (peut être) la couverture française de wild cards.
        J’ai Lu t’a donc contacté au final?

  • Andrea

    Marc, great fan of your art. So happy to discover this project thanks to the friendly ad done by GRRM on his blog. Good luck with that, and keep on painting our dreams :)

    • Simonetti Marc

      Thanks a lot Andrea!

  • Yann

    J’adore tes illustrations, merci pour ce beau projet !

    • Simonetti Marc

      Merci beaucoup!

  • Fred

    I am in :) Par contre où doit on spécifier son adresse pour recevoir le précieux livre ? :) Et y a t il une estimation de la date de sortie du livre ? !

    • eightgr

      L’adresse peut être renseignée dans votre Dashboard, mais dans tous les cas un email sera envoyé à la fin de la campagne pour collecter les données!

  • RamZ

    Hi Marc I love your work!!! I would love to have your pictures on my wall…Especially the REAL “Iron Throne” one. I have a question is the drawing going to be available for purchase any time soon?
    Also I really want the book too but still debating the options. Is the campaign going to be open until July or is there a chance you might shut it down if the numbers get too high?
    Thank you

    • Simonetti Marc

      Hi RamZ,

      Thanks a lot !
      This special one won’t be released as a print before the release of George RR Martin upcoming book “The World of Ice and Fire”, because it was done for it.
      But this illustration will be in my Art Book.

      The Campaign will be open until July whatever happen :) (If the numbers get too high I will just do a bigger number of printed books ! )

      • RamZ

        Thank You! I already Pre-ordered “The World of Ice and Fire” long ago…
        I will probably try to buy something within my budget for now. I’ll save my money for a big canvas picture when it’s available :)

    Bonjour Marc,

    Très joli travail !
    Je souhaitais savoir quel était la proportion de pages consacrées au trône de fer sur les 240 que comportent le livre ?

    Merci

    • Simonetti Marc

      Bonjour Paella,

      Il y a pour l’instant (la maquette évolue, et je n’ai pas encore incorporé les 16 pages supplémentaires) plus de 25 pages consacrées au trône de fer. Il y a cependant d’autres couvertures de GRR Martin (riverdream, chanson pour Lya, windheaven, wild cards, des astres et des ombres). Et il y a aussi quelques couvertres pour les amateurs de fantasy parmi lesquelles celles de patrick rothfuss, terry gookind, terry pratchett, Sam Sykes, entre beaucoup d’autres….

  • ganjatealq

    Bonjour Marc.

    Très beau travail et j’ai hâte de recevoir mon artbook.!

    Mais maintenant qu’on a dépassé le 2nd objectif pour obtenir 16 pages en plus, un potentiel 3ème objectif possible ? Mais pas 16 pages en plus ! (j’aime beaucoup trop le nombre 256 (informaticien spotted !) :-P )

    • Simonetti Marc

      Bonjour,

      Oui il y aura bientôt un nouvel objectif, avec d’autres rewards…à 20k :)
      Je ferai une annonce sous peu!

  • ray feighery

    It would appear Mr Martin’s blog mention shot you well over the top! I already funded it a while back but was just curious if we might be looking at some stretch goals?

    • Simonetti Marc

      Hi Ray!

      Yes, George is awesome and kind :)
      There will be a stretch goal at 20k! (very soon, now)

      • ray feighery

        That’s Great to hear! Really looking forward to this!
