Hey all I am new here and I figured I would join this community because it seems like this is the most active blade runner forum on the internet? Unless I am wrong about this then maybe others can tell me what other Blade Runner forums are bigger BUT either way I wanted to create this thread because I found something that Blade Runner Fans might want to check out! So my friend send me this link via email and I am glad he did because he is a blade runner fan like myself but this link he sent me is a very unique project book! I have already pledged because the artwork is PHENOMENAL and to top it off the goal has already been reached, so this means that the Blade Runner Zine Art Book is going to be released no matter what! But if you are curious about this Blade Runner Zine project, click on the link below for more info and trust me this is worth a look: Description: [b]Blade Runner-inspired artwork from 25 illustrators, collected in a risographed anthology booklet.[/b] [b][/b] [b]Replicants unite! We're bringing you a fan-made tribute to one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Known for its futuristic, dystopian aesthetic, the Blade Runner universe provides the perfect fodder for a collaborative art project. In an off-world mining colony, twenty-five of us illustrators have taken up the challenge, and plan to collect our work in a super high-quality booklet. But we need your help to ensure it reaches Earth.[/b] [b][/b] [b]I had no idea what "Risographed" means but I did a little research and now I understand it! Here is the link if you want to get a better idea of what "Risograph" is all about:[/b] [Center][url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risograph]Risograph[/url][/Center] [b]Here is one screen shot that the project creator attached down below and there is PLENTY more of them by clicking the link below:[/b] [Center][url=http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameso/skinjobs-a-blade-runner-zine]Skinjobs: A Blade Runner Zine![/url][/Center] [Center][IMG]http://i40.tinypic.com/9q9spj.jpg[/IMG][/Center] [b]So...What do you think Blade Runner fans??? I am not the creator of that project but I figured I could spread the news about this Blade Runner book project to other Blade Runner fans because I have no idea if other Blade Runner fans know about this project or not.[/b] [b][/b] [b]The best part about this project is that it has ALREADY reached the funding goal so quickly in under 48 hours after it went live on 11/21 which is insane but it also proves that there are plenty of Blade Runner fans out in the wild to this day!! So no matter what this Blade Runner Zine art book will be releasing soon because the delivery date for the Blade Runner Zine art book says January 2014 and As of today on 11/24/2013 there is STILL 18 days left before the project ends![/b] [b][/b] [b]I've already pledged $13 bucks since that is a freaking STEAL for a physical copy of the book because I have pledged on other projects such as video games and sometimes the project creator will add a book filled with art designs, concepts, etc all that jazz but the cost of the book is sometimes between 50-100 bucks! So I am glad that this Blade Runner Zine Book is not selling for insane prices but $13 is just a remarkable low price. I may end up increasing my pledge for 2 copies of the book because I want to give the extra copy to my blade runner friend who first told me about this Blade Runner Zine project[/b] [b][/b] [b]Sorry for the long post folks! As you can see I am a bit excited about this book because Blade Runner is still one of my favorite movies of all time, hands down![/b] *Links and Images made clickable by Svanya.

Thanks for the response! I didn't think I would get a response so quickly but it's good to read that there are blade runner fans out there. The project creator is going to be thrilled that you posted the project on yer facebook page because the more the merrier! I already posted/created a thread on the [b][url=http://www.reddit.com/r/bladerunner/]official reddit blade runner page[/url][/b] I am currently creating another thread on the official Blade Runner IMDB movie page and if you know any other places to spread the word then by all means, go for it! Also, if you want to ask the project creator questions about the project, you can either click on the comments section which is located here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameso/skinjobs-a-blade-runner-zine/comments Or if you want to send the project creator a personal question you can always click on the "Contact Me" link which is located on the right side of the page while scrolling down just a bit. Anyways, let's get this party started and spread the good news about this awesome project because for $13 I think that is a freaking steal for a copy of the book!

@Sawa that gif is HYPNOTIZING!!! also, what's this talk about you wearing a hot pink coat? PICS OR DIDN'T HAPPEN! Also, Svanya you need to do more than just tell yer cool friends on facebook about this pimp blade runner art book. What you need to do is go to the Tannhäuser Gate and tell whomever is still alive about the art book. Plus, you need to go to some random coffee shop like Fourbucks or something and bring yer laptop with the Blade Runner kickstarter page fully blown up on yer laptop screen. Yell at people and say "LOOK AT MY SCREEN, LOOK AT THAT, DO YOU SEE IT?" etc. I dunno what else I am forgetting but damnit step it up!

[url=http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameso/skinjobs-a-blade-runner-zine]Blade Runner Zine Art Book click here[/url] the project owner added one new thing called "Nerve Gum" which is an additional $20 but it is optional, you can read more about the "nerve gum" thing by clicking the link below [url=http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameso/skinjobs-a-blade-runner-zine/posts/694605]Nerve Gum[/url]

UPDATE! Just got an update from the person who is in charge of the fantastic Blade Runner project and I am curious to see how many people from this community is getting their own \"Blade Runner Risographed Anthology Booklet\" which is done by 25 talented illustrators. I pledged the $13 tier which includes: A physical copy of the zine, A digital PDF copy, and Access To In-Process Photos. Also, which tier/reward/pledge did you choose if you are one of the very few people that pledged to this Blade Runner project? Anyways, I will copy/paste the update that the project creator sent out to all his/her backers since this information/pictures that I am about to post is for Backers Eyes only! No worries, I already asked permission and he said the more people that know, the merrier lol. Here we go! ======================= [img]http://i.imgur.com/wGlcyx1.jpg[/img] The risographing is finished resulting in the fat stacks pictured above. I\'m really pleased with the way the artwork turned out and I\'m excited for you and the contributors themselves to see it physically. I appreciate everyone\'s patience during the protracted printing process. There were a couple of time-wasting hurdles along the way including taking apart a color drum and having to manually count a ton of paper (ugh) - but they\'ve all been surmounted. Now that the printer and I have been through our first ordeal together, it\'s probably time to name it and put a face on it. I was thinking \"Rez\" because its model is RZ590, but I might go with aRiso Franklin.. 1ST EDITION binding begins tomorrow, the 2ND EDITION is in progress, and I\'ll now be able to compile the PDF edition shortly. [img]http://i.imgur.com/C9Hx5p2.jpg[/img] illustration by Tony Huynh [img]http://i.imgur.com/hkzEBoW.jpg[/img] illustrations by Tony Huynh & C.A. Stavridis Thanks guys! - James ========================= That's it! I just wanted to share that update with everyone else in here but most of all I wanted to share it to see if anyone here supported the project by backing/pledging it. Anyways, what do you think of the new screenshots of the art the artist made? Even if you did or did not pledge/back, I will still like to read you're opinion since I am curious lol. Between the 3 screen shots, well the 1st one doesn't really count since it's just a bunch of big white blank papers or whatever BUT the other two screenshots that I posted and done by amazing artists, I absolutely love the white horse unicorn, it just looks so damn weird/cool/freaky/awesome in a positive way! Even the picture/art on the right side of the white horse unicorn is amazing as well! I am trying to figure out what Roy Batty is holding with his hands, it seems like he is playing a video game controller LOL but perhaps what Roy is holding is the bird but I clearly do not see a bird lol. I even love the little droplets of rain in the background of roy since that scene is pretty much the best scene of the entire movie if you know what I mean :) So anyone care to type up on what they see or how they view the 2 pictures/arts that I showed you? Do you like the design/drawing of the White horse unicorn? Do you think having the name "Ridley Scott" written on the side of the white horse is appealing or not? Do you think the ridley scott text should be placed somewhere else? Is there anything that you would change or add from the two art/pictures that you are viewing? If you could rate the pictures/arts from 1 through 10, how would you rate both art/pics? Are they both 10 out 10? Or is one of them 5 out of 10 while the other is 6 out of 10? Which art piece do you love the most between the two? If you could only pick ONE pic/art between the two, which one would you end up taking and why if possible? lol sorry for the long post! cheers!

I just got permission from the project owner to post 5 pictures from the upcoming Skinjobs: A Blade Runner Zine because the physical book is being sent soon while the PDF file of all of the artwork is available for backers. I had to manually upload 5 images because I could not save each picture since it was one giant PDF file slideshow. Anyways here are the 5 pictures that I could show. There is over 30 different blade runner related art pieces done by 25 different illustrators as well.
