Artist Marco Turini, whose work has graced the pages and cover of Heavy Metal, is in the final push for funding to create a book of his work. He’s currently 217% funded with six days left — that’s great news if (like us) you’re a fan of his illustrations. Go to the project’s Indiegogo page (indiegogo.com/projects/marco-turini-art-book#/) for all the details. It’s not too late to give the campaign a little bump, and Marco’s got swag for backers.
Below is a good sampler of Turini’s drawings and paintings — most of these images will be in the book. To learn more about Marco, and to get information about how to purchase the book when it’s available, visit his website, marcoturiniart.com, and his official Facebook page. He’s only printing 200 copies of this baby, so if you want one you’ll need to keep your eye on the ball.
