My new art book, The Stars of Fantasyville: A Sketchbook, is on KickStarter now – until November 18!
WHAT IS STARS OF FANTASYVILLE: A SKETCHBOOK?
Let’s answer your question with another question: do you know about Inktober?
Inktober is the artists’ challenge to draw in ink every day in October. It’s an art challenge I have done every year since 2017. And when I do, I often collect the Inktober sketches of that year and gather them into a new book!
In the past, I’ve drawn Witches, Gods & Spirits, Dragons, and even a webcomic called PuzzleSpell.
For Inktober this year, I drew the characters that feature in my comics, roleplaying games, novels, and other stories! Every sketch is drawn with Copic markers, Zebra brush pens, and Strathmore paper, and adjusted for printing in Clip Studio Paint. I have gathered all the sketches from Inktober this year and put them into Stars of Fantasyville: A Sketchbook.
And now, you can pre-order a copy of your own!
What I’m Asking For
To make this book happen, I’m asking for $700 by November 18. As of this post, we’ve raised $485, and we have 8 days left.
What will that money be used for? Well, I broke it down in this pie chart I drew:
Why do I want to print 100 copies?
Ok. I mentioned this in my post about Aistear Con 3, but I’ll state it here, as well: books are my best category when I go to conventions. So to prepare for conventions next year, I would LOVE it if I had as many copies as possible in my inventory. Nothing sucks worse than getting ready for a show and realizing, “Oh dang, I forgot to re-order books and now I only have 2 copies of this title left.”
What Can You Get for Backing This Campaign?
I kept the rewards list simple: digital and physical copies of The Stars of Fantasyville: A Sketchbook, and PDF copies of all the Inktober sketchbooks of years past.
Because here’s the secret: I have a LOT of add-ons you can include with your rewards!
Add-on options include (but are not limited to)…
If you’re able, back this KickStarter BEFORE NOVEMBER 18, yo.
If you’re broke, share this post! Every share helps.
That’s all for now. Thank you for your support!
You. Are. Awesome.
