Martin Deschambault to Sign Books & Review Portfolios at MIGS

MIGS17 will return this year on December 11th to 13th at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal with 2 floors, 7 tracks including a newly added Industry and Advocacy track, 8 simultaneous session rooms, 90+ sessions and live demos. For the first time ever at MIGS, ArtStation will be hosting a live pop-up gallery, exhibiting a curated selection of the best local artists in the media & entertainment industry – including some amazing artwork from Project 77.

On December 12 from 6pm-9pm, we invite you to join us at the Nocturne cocktail where Martin Deschambault will be on site to sign books, participate in portfolio reviews and meet with fans.

“It was really important to have the liberty of creation so a Space Opera setting was perfect. The universe is large enough to have all the variety I wanted to express my creativity” explained Deschambault on how Project 77 was developed. As part of Nocturne, he’ll be there to chat more about the book and sign copies for fans.

For those who will be with MIGS for the duration of the conference, join our Fireside Chat with ArtStation CEO, Leonard Teo, where he will share the journey that lead ArtStation to becoming the world’s largest Media & Entertainment artist platform with more than 400,000 members and nearly 3 million unique visitors each month. Hear how ArtStation has contributed to the industry ecosystem and about what exciting developments we have brewing for 2018!

ArtStation Media Celebrates Launch with Project 77

On November 8, we celebrated the launch of the first edition of the new publishing division with Martin Deschambault’s long awaited Project 77.

“We’re just so excited to be creating these beautiful art books that brings ArtStation onto people’s bookcases. It’s just cool,” said CEO Leonard Teo on why ArtStation was starting to go into the publishing business.

“Working with the brilliant Martin Deschambault, legendary designer Brent Ashe and veteran production designer Daniel Cox has set the bar incredibly high for the ArtStation imprint—which is exactly where we like it,” added Co-Publisher Daniel Wade, who produced 40+ art books at Ballistic Publishing (founded by Leonard in 2003).

Project 77, though still not available for purchase on Amazon, was on sale exclusively at the event where guests were able to mingle and their book signed by the guest of honour. One lucky guest won a signed Project 77 canvas to bring home with them.

Project 77 is scheduled to be available online through Amazon towards the end of November. Sign up for the ArtStation Media newsletter to receive notice when the you can order your own copy!
