Hi everyone! Welcome to my kickstarter to get my art printed in two brand new art books! This is my first kickstarter, but I'm working with Jemma Young and some other great kickstarter veterans to get this project created! So you can know that when you back this project, you will get your reward! The books have already been designed and are ready to go, all I need is the money to pay for printing and shipping.
For those of you who don't know who I am, I'm Chad Hardin. I'm mostly known for being the artist for DC's Harley Quinn comic with Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. I've also done Wonder Woman, Dragon Age, Spider Man, Stan Lee's The Traveler, Warlord, and many more over my twenty year career as comic illustrator. While I'm not drawing comic panels, I'm a Professor of Art at Utah Valley University teaching the next generation of comic artists.
The books will be hardcover containing 60 pages each and will measure 8.5 x 11 inches with glossy cover. The books will be the best quality possible with glossy interior paper. And if we hit some stretch goals, we'll be able to upgrade the book with foil stamping.
Not finding the exact reward your looking for? You can always add on to your pledge to get some of these extras. To get an add on, select a reward and then add a custom amount to your pledge based on what you want to add. After the kickstarter is finished, we'll contact you to find out what add ons you want!
If we meet our goal, I have some fun stretch goals planned! This includes upgrades to the book and extra things like bookmarks and prints that will be added to all pledges for free. And best of all, if we reach $25,000 I'll be able to dedicate my time to creating my new creator owned comic, Temerity.
Thanks for checking out my kickstarter and I hope you'll back this project and help make these Art Books a reality!
Risks and challenges
This is my first time running a kickstarter, but I'm working with my good friend and business partner, Jemma M. Young who has done three kickstarters so far. The art is complete and books are already laid out and designed. All we need is the money to go to print. We have a great team behind us to help us get the books printed, fulfilled, and shipped out to backers in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
