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!

After seeing your art  i felt like i step into the future. Great job.
hazefeather Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'd totally buy it! Also, from the images it looks like it'd be printed with very good quality so I'd understand if this was like 60-85€ (not sure how much that's in $), shipping excluded. We're talking about an art book after all, and your concepts are awesome!

AndrewBrubakerArt Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014
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. :)
Danieru93 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014
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 :)

Literally cannot define in words how much I would buy this book.
dkounios Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Slowly working on something like this of my own so seeing artists get their own I.Ps out (Like Luvisi) is so inspiring and keeps the motivation going.
Can't wait dude!

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.
YuuuKun Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

Psychokiller21 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014
Sounds really cool
ThatRedFox Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014
Very interested in getting this!! 
nikaela Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014  Hobbyist
THIS IS INCREDIBLE! Have you considered creating a kickstarter for this project? I'm sure a lot of people would donate!
I think a price range from $70-100 USD would be very reasonable considering how much this book would include.
Another idea could be making more than one book or installment, that way each book could be cheaper and attract a wider audience, just a thought!
Good Luck! <3 
dxeleven Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014
$30. Nothing considered past that.

Dinarium Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I will buy it! If u get out a digital version i probably will go with that as I live abroad, the price.. i dunno. 40$?
Veistim Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Professional Photographer
I can't give you feedback, too blinded by the excitement. But I'd definitely buy it.
kahunaSK Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
If it will be possible to buy this book even for me (Central EU, shipping is pain in ass), I will buy it and I will give 50 € for book. I hope that this will happen.
Saiosen Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Literally just stumbled onto your page. I can say if this were up on Amazon (Canada) right now for 40 - 50 USD, I would buy it.
panekomo Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014
Do you have a price in mind? I wish I can have one of these :) Love your artworks and stories :)
monnnntana Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2014
I would TOTALLY buy this book! Your artwork is like totally INSANE! Some of the coolest stuff I have seen. 
Wasteandwanting Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014
Really will depend on how you do all the extras: maps, files, etc, but no doubt the print quality will be great, so $30-50 is fair.
Namo911 Featured By Owner May 31, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I don't have all that much to spend with, but if this is like a 20-30$ buy, definitely going to pick it up!

I love your artwork and use plenty of your Neo Japan pictures as desktop wallpapers. Having a physical book would satisfy me in many ways. Emotionally, psychologically, sexually... >//<

Having posters for my room would be amazing, too.... Heheh. Yeah I love it :D
patrykkozyb Featured By Owner May 27, 2014  Student Digital Artist

AgentSteve93 Featured By Owner May 23, 2014
IDGAF, id pay stupid amounts of money for a collection like that.

kotsos13 Featured By Owner May 16, 2014

bro! i would love to contribute! let me know haha!
praetorian187 Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Love this I would easily pay the same price for this as one of the Ballistic publishing slip case books, amazing stuff man! I would love to help contribute to this too if thats ok with you i'll send you a note on it. 
Koopsmas Featured By Owner May 6, 2014
I want it, tbh I normally don't care for these kinds of things but this series of your's has been the only thing dragging me back to this site as of late and to see it fleshed out into a book would be superb. Price is an iffy one mind you, I'd happily pay 25($42) for it but anything over that would have to feel real special. LMS is 34 but it's heavy enough to kill someone with. 
rad66203 Featured By Owner May 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Depends on price. If it's above $50 dollars then no. Below $50 then yes.
