What is Prime?

Prime is my very first collection of art and design. Full of bright, beautiful, and stylistic pin-up art, classic book covers, and a few surprises. The book is a 8.5"x11", 86 page hard cover collection filled with full page images of my own posters, logos, and other oddities. 

The collection also includes all 24 book covers created for Rock Paper Books classics collection, which was it's own successful Kickstarter back in May of this year. 

Along with the book I've put together a selection, of what I hope, are some cool and enticing rewards in return for your support.

 No Kickstarter is complete without some cool sketch goal, so here we go. 

Stretch goal #1 $7,000

If we hit the $7,000 mark I'll include four more pages in the book of sketches and images that might give you an insight into my creative process. 

Risks and challenges

I don't foresee any complications in fulfilling any of the rewards. All of the printers I have chosen for this project I have worked with before. The book and all of the rewards have already been created and only need to be sent to the printer.
