From the foreword, by artist Jonathan Ponikvar:
The concept for the Cosplay series started as a Monthly Art Challenge. In late 2015, I determined to test myself and draw a sketch a day during the month of October. “Inktober” is a common event for artists online, and generally is themed around Halloween in some form, so I determined to make mine a pinup challenge featuring my wife Whitney’s character.
Now an annual event, the Whitney Cosplay Series features her character dressed in the costumes of other characters during the realms of comics, video games, sci-fi, and animation. These sketches are done in a cheesecake pinup style and posted online as they’re completed. On the end of the month, a system is set up where viewers can donate funds towards their favorite sketches to see them get upgraded to ink and color, unlock ten additional bonus sketches, and ultimately fund the production of this printed collection.
Included on this book are the following:
- All 31 original cosplays from October 2016
- All 10 bonus cosplays, as unlocked by means of funding
- 5 Additional cosplays featuring Peter as his counterpart character to match Whitney’s costume
The Annual Whitney Cosplay Series is a work of pinup and parody.
