Hook, Lynn, & Sinker is the story of three unlikely allies who get swept up in a high seas adventure together. Hook is a alien on the run from sinister forces. Lynn is young bar maid who dreams of adventure. And Sinker is a ingenious scientist and inventor- who also happens to be a fish. The three of them band together in search of buried treasure. But they must work together to overcome a great many obstacles and terrible dangers along the way.

This is a fun, crazy adventure comic story. But instead of being confined to an itty-bitty comic book with teeny-winy pictures, this story gets told across four over-sized beautiful poster prints.

Here are a few close-ups of the posters to show off the detail:

Once a week for the duration of this campaign, I will live stream myself drawing some original art. The dates/times of the next scheduled Kickstarter Live are posted at the top of this page (or will be very shortly). Any backer (at the $20 level or higher) who comments on the Kickstarter Live stream will get the original art I am drawing. I will draw about 3 pieces per stream. The first 3 (or so) backers to comment during the Kickstarter Live will have dibs on the artwork. All backers are invited to watch all the Kickstarter Live sessions but I'm only going to give a total of one piece of original art per backer for the duration of this campaign. The Kickstarter Live sessions will also give me the opportunity to talk more about the campaign and answer any questions.

 THE $100 ORIGINAL ART AWARD:

Backers who pledge at the $100 level will receive all 4 posters, digital downloads, an 11 x 17 art print of their choice and one finished 8" x 10" ink drawing of a character of their choice. I specialize in drawing my own characters (from Quick The Clockwork Knight, Burnt, or HellHole-- see examples below). But if you are generous enough to be willing to pledge at this amount, I'm willing to take a stab at drawing whatever character you would like. Here are some examples of original ink drawing commissions:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is my 7th Kickstarter campaign. Each one goes a little smoother than the last. Of course, there can be unforeseen delays. But I am very confident every thing will ship on time. The artwork is complete. Two of the four posters have already been printed and are on hand, ready to ship. If this campaign is successful, we print the remaining posters with the same printer and send them right along.
