I draw you.. as a creepy, rotting, disfigured, abomination.. and then post the original A3 art piece to you.

Goreography is a project where you send me a photo of yourself, a friend, family member or your other half, and with high quality Faber Castell PITT Pens, sketching pencils and a sheet of quality A3 paper, I transform the photo into a dark morbid design.

Once complete, the original black & white artwork is signed and posted to you. It will also be available on the website for you to share with friends.

A3 designs will be made to order via the website or via contacting me by e-mail.

Designs vary from rotting flesh, to the removal of features such as teeth, eyes, jaws. I try to do this while still maintaining the person's most distinguishable features as to create a twisted caricature.

I'd also like to note that I do not trace or vector your photos, they are drawn freehand, only using your photo as a reference. 

All artwork focuses on the face, but any headgear, eye-wear, masks or other accessories are more than welcome as you can see by the pictures below.

The simple answer is.. I enjoy it.

I've always loved drawing monsters and gruesome things from an early age, but the past year or so I've been focusing on faces. I usually draw freehand, making up the faces as I go along, but recently I've been doing family members.

My goal now is to get creative with other peoples photos, drawing faces I've never seen before. I'm also interested in what kind of photos I get sent, will they be wearing a mask, maybe have facial tattoos or piercings, I just want to see where the photo takes me when I start drawing.

The funding you kindly provide will go towards a number of things:

  • Pens, pencils, paper and other essential stationary.
  • A3 scanner & printer.

It also allows me to try out the art in other ways, such as on a mouse mat, t-shirt or art book, which I can later offer to you.

A pledge of £5,£10 or £15 get's you a smaller original one of a kind drawing. Each will be numbered on a first come, first serve basis.

No two drawings will be the same.

If the kickstarter campaign is a success, then you picture will be drawn and then posted / e-mailed to you

The website will also showcase all pictures in a thank you page with their number and also display each person's name with their piece.

Below are a few examples.

£15

A kind £15 pledge will get you all previous rewards, plus an A3 print of your choice from the goreography collection.

£20 (limited quantity)

Now this is where things start getting interesting..

Your £20 pledge will let you be one of the first, to have their very own A3 goreography art piece based on a photo you submit.

Once finished, the original piece will be posted to you and later uploaded to the website so you can share with your friends.

(Art may only contain one person and will focus primarily on the head/face including any head/face/hair accessories.)

£30 (limited quantity)

Get a friend, family member or lover in on the action.

For £30 the A3 piece will contain two people. Ideal for kissing couples,

£50 (limited quantity)

Your very very generous pledge will grant you a choice of the £20 solo art piece, or £30 two people piece.

We will also throw in 5 additional A3 prints of your choice.

The future is the most exciting part, coming up with new ideas and ways to showcase the art, if it be on a t-shirt, mug, USB pen drive or published book. I'd love to try new things, water colours, pastels, working with massive canvases.

If the campaign goes well, and the interest of others and yourself is there, and as long as people keep wanting their photos re-designed by me, then the possibilities are pretty much limitless.
