Simonetti Art Book

Marc Simonetti, the amazing French artist who has done so many great covers for both A SONG OF ICE & FIRE and WILD CARDS, is trying to raise funding for a book of his art.

I know there's a lot of Simonetti fans out there.  If you'd like to help, check out:

Kickstarter
heh, it seems it already got fully funded. I personally am not very familiar with his work but I HAVE seen some of the ASOIAF artwork, which is pure bliss.

Kickstarter projects seem to get more attention nowadays, especially when it's for someone who has proven to be good at what he/she does. Luckily for him, he has. But sadly, all is not well in publishing and producing of products who may not be very profitable, which scares new talent away and forces some (maybe like Simonetti) to crowdfunding. Kickstarter (partially) resolves this problem and allows talented people to potentially achieve their dreams.

Kickstarter even managed to enable funding for multi million dollar projects (most notable, star citizen, which has accumulated a whopping 42 million dollars), which leaves me with the question: is this the future?

Edit: not Kickstarter apparently, but still...
