NEO JAPAN 2202 - THE BOOK by johnsonting NEO JAPAN 2202 - THE BOOK by johnsonting
Hey guys, flash news!


So im going to need some pretty big favor from you guys! Currently im looking to make Neo Japan 2202 into a book before into a game! (hopefully), so there's a poll on the main page above my journal entry, i hope you guys dont mind doing a pretty fast two-click survey for me. If it were to be made into a book, it's going to be roughly like this:

-- English! But will probably have japanese translation/subtexts.
-- Most probably hardcover
-- 150 - 200 pages.
-- 50-100 artworks (Illustrations and sketches)
-- At least 30-50 Exclusive artworks that can only be in the book. 
-- The Story, tons of it! Not just plain texts but with visuals as well. 
-- Documents from the Neo Japan 2202 universe, maps/files/pictures/blueprints/namecards etc.
-- Price wise, im not really sure right now but i will definitely keep it as low as possible, the same goes to shipping, but if its not too much of a trouble i hope you guys dont mind dropping me a price range you would buy it!
-- Probably a digital ebook version as well (Download code for physical book buyers included)
-- Hopefully some soundtracks! (Currently looking for collaborators, you guys recommend anyone?)
-- Prints / posters inside!

This is still an initial concept so this is not the final product, just a rough mock up and testing around stuffs. Hopefully i can include different printing materials in the book to add a little more variety into it. 
Let me know what you think :D Feedbacks are important and let me know what you want the most to be in a book that you would love to own and love! It's important for me to know what you guys think and you're playing a big role to decide whether this book would be coming in the near future, so i take all the help i can get!

Also, if you're a publication company and interested to talk further, do not hesitate to contact me@
Any other artists that wishes to contribute anything to the Neo Japan universe, let me know in the comments below! 

IN OTHER NEWS, i have 19 invitations for Artstation this month, anyone need them? Im more than happy to give them :)

PS. Keep the feedbacks going! I read them all and will reply them one by one as always, it's important for me to know what you think, any help is greatly appreciated!

I love your art man, would like to buy the book if its coming out, or is it already out?

I just saw your art on Kotaku. Just letting you know that I would buy this book in a heartbeat. I'd be willing to pay a fair amount for it as well ($100+) if it came with all of your ideal inclusions. :)

I would definetly buy it. But don´t you think crowdfunding might be a very good idea for such a project. At least there are some succes story for the same kind of stuff :)

Hey man, I will drop $50 for this to be honest. Your work is amazing and well worth buying. I love your style and concepts. I'm currently practicing 3d and 2d so if I can help in anyway possible just let me know. Your work in inspiring. I always had an idea similar to yours in a since I wanted a story taking place in the future with mechs, cyborgs, drones, and other sci-fi stuff. A story I'm thinking of writing was going to be called Neo Flash. Will be following you.
