It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. Just bananas.
If you’ve been following me on social media I’m sure you’ve seen me preaching the gospel of my KICKSTARTER. It’s been going swell. And what makes it special are these ART GIVEAWAYS I keep doing every time we chalk up another 50 backers. Anyone pledging over $40 is eligible.
Why is that, Shane?
I’ll tell you. It costs less for me to add a little more shipping than to package and ship something entirely on it’s own. Besides, it’ll be better protected within the confines of the book. The earlier you get in the more chances you have to win. Talk about marketing rhyming scheme…damn, Superman! 🙂
So, please, check out the video below and if you feel compelled to support me this Holiday Season I might be able to put in a good word with the fat man in red.
Crazy but true, I just gave this HULK ILLUSTRATION away to one of my KICKSTARTER BACKERS because we hit the 50+ BACKERS MARK.
How can you get in on this sweet deal?
Consider making a pledge at any level for a chance to win…and tell your friends. Every time we add another 50 is another chance for you to win.
And who doesn’t like being a winner?
Kickstarter Updates are for backers only, otherwise I’d show you the Behind-the-Scenes videos and Making of Art. Become a part of good cause and get some sweet gifts for yourself. And sometimes for not even trying that hard. :\
Finally, I’ve got my new KICKSTARTER for BRAUN up and running.It’s a 170+pg. oversized graphic novel. It’s huge…the story is sprawling, the characters relationships are deep and the enemy is all around.
Please consider a pledge today. The more backers the more people get the book.
I think most people would consider this a learning experience. I know I have. It’s akin to starting a business with a main goal in mind, but in this case you’re asking for funding. Which, I’ve never done before. Being a freelance artist and getting the infrastructure setup for my business is something I’ve always been able to do on my own. However, self-publishing is a much bigger animal.
Speaking of bigger animals. I’m working on the voice-over narration for the hardcover wrap-around cover today. This was a beast to conceive but I do like where I landed on it. If nothing else I can call it done. By pledging you’ll have BACKER-EXCLUSIVE UPDATES and behind-the-scenes videos and art. It’s kind of sweet deal and any price gets you in the door.
BUT… if you’re really into FREE ART and GIVEAWAYS, pledges over $40 will be able to win stuff along the way.
Anyway, even if you’re not able to pledge I’d appreciate sharing the KICKSTARTER with a friend, enemy, lover, teacher, spouse, child or any intelligent creature with good taste and a keen-eye for handsome books.
A little over a year and a half ago I was contacted by Dynamite Entertainment to do a 12 page story for the first issue of PATHFINDER: GOBLINS. It was written by Erik Mona whom I’d never heard of before. I really dug the script and had never tried drawing a fantasy-based story before even though some of my early work was in the D&D manuals of the late 90s. Overall, it was a different take on the characters and world which garnered mixed reviews. I had fun, and really that’s all that matters when you’re doing any work.
Here’s a link to find EIGHT more pages in the COMICS section! And apparently they’ll be a hardcover coming out sometime soon. So, if you want to see this in color and have a nice coffeetable book, chat up your local comics shop.
