Hi! My KickStarter project is live and starting to gather interest! But I'll need more than interest to publish an actual-to-goodness book collection of my recent artwork. I'll need to have pledges to buy the book, pledges that go through the KickStarter site. You can go to that site by clicking this link:
I've got a KickStarter (crowd-funding program) campaign that's going to go live in just a few days, raising funds to print a book collection of my best artwork. It will be the first such collection in my long art career of 40 years. It will showcase my favorite subject in the known Universe—people! Fascinating people whose features are timeless and stunning!
I'm going to need your help to make this happen. If just 500 people were to pledge for the cost of a book ($35 U.S.), it would pay for the printing and shipping costs. There are more options and I'll share more details soon, but I wanted to give a heads-up that this is happening and is so important for me to be able to continue creating art of the sort I've shown you here on the internet!

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
