e338 is an epic collection of personal work by Loïc Zimmermann (VFX Concept Artist on Thor, Iron Man 3, True Grit & more)
This 152-page book is a complete collection of the personal art of Loïc e338 Zimmermann. Offering a unique insight into the life of a multi-talented French visual artist living and working in Los Angeles on superhero films such as Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3, it is lovingly packed with insightful articles on his creation processes spanning concept art, 3D, digital sculpting, photography, mixed media and more.
Please take a moment to check out our vision behind this book, as well as the exclusive rewards that we have cooked up with Loïc to say a massive THANKS for your pledges...
As well as a stunning art book, it is also designed to be an inspirational guide for artists and art lovers alike, including tips on how to be proactive as an artist, how to problem-solve design challenges, as well as offering insights into his personal creation techniques - and this stuff is gold! Great care will be taken over the design and layout of the images and articles to ensure the art has the room it needs to breathe, while still satisfying your desire to devour an immensely rich collection of art.
Exclusive to this 'art of' book is Loïc's most recent Binaural illustration series, which features several images of beautiful female characters wearing spectacularly colourful space helmets. The idea for the first Binaural girl originated during several nights of insomnia, and has since evolved into a thrilling series of images - each one sharing fragments of the last. Here is a sneak peek at what's in store...
It will measure 255x255mm in size and will be presented in a beautiful slipcase. We are exploring the options with our printers to find the best results for the book cover and the slipcase as we want to ensure it has the right quality for an art book of this ilk. We have already produced books in the past with a variety of cover and slipcase options, so we are confident that we can come up with something awesome for this very special art book.
