    Doctor Who Art-Card Ltd Edition SPECIAL!

    IMPORTANT! This is a new reward- added mid-campaign. It is a STANDALONE i.e. it is not 'added in after the previous reward' but you can pledge on this and any other reward... to combine! I am thrilled to be able to offer a very special NEW reward halfway through the museum’s successful Kickstarter campaign! Legendary artist/illustrator Andrew Skilleter has been a supporter of the museum since its inception. ‘Who Dares Publishing’ and Andrew have very kindly produced a beautiful and strictly limited edition Portfolio/Art-card set for the Kickstarter campaign!

    In what is sure to become a rare collectable in itself, the portfolio comprises of six stunning images from Andrew’s rich ‘Doctor Who’ catalogue. Working with Who Dares and Andrew directly, we ensured that the set was especially themed toward stories featured in the museum! The Art-cards printed to exacting standards on the highest quality card, each depict a classic ‘Doctor Who’ adventure (originally featured on one of the official novelisations, Video covers or ‘Who Dares’ calendars and prints that Andrew contributed to).

    To both help the museum and get this great Art-Card set, just select this reward! Due to the costs involved in creating the item- half of the cost will be going to cover the printing by ‘Who Dares’ whilst the other (£6.00) will go directly to the museum!

    If you have already pledged to the museum and would like to add this set into your existing rewards package, simply pledge again for the cards and I will ensure they are sent to you. Postage will be added as they are being mailed out from ‘Who Dares’ as opposed the Museum ‘up North’! Once again – a huge thank you to Andrew Skilleter, Matt Doe and Rob Moss of ‘Who Dares’ for all their time in putting this very special reward together!

    Become a Sci-Fi prop sponsor! In addition to all the perks of the ‘Sci-fi Supporter’ package, have one of the unique exhibits in the museum personally dedicated: your name will appear on the bespoke, Perspex museum plaque, displayed beside an original, production made item of Science-Fiction history! In addition, we’ll e-mail you a copy of the plaque artwork (complete with your name).

    If that wasn’t enough! I am currently working on writing & designing the official museum souvenir book to accompany the project...your name will be part of the museum story in print on the special donor page!

    And finally... a permanent, large plaque is going to be designed and sited at the front of the museum- your name will be displayed proudly on this to - permanently in the Museum of Classic Science-Fiction!

    Please note:

    1: Choice of item Sponsorship - After hours of agonising(!) I have decided the only way of managing the prop/costume sponsorship option is to split up the collection into three broad sections- ‘Doctor Who’, ‘Science-Fiction History’ and ‘Marvel’. When making a pledge, could you message me your preferred choice of category in which to sponsor an item; to help me assign an item to you. At this time I don’t want to reveal all the items in the museum…otherwise there will be no surprises; but I will be issuing a list of some interesting ‘first come-first served’ sponsorship artefacts. Clearly these can only be offered in this way! Once the ‘fist come’ items receive sponsorship I will endeavour to do my very best to match you with an alternative suitable artefact in your chosen museum category.

    2: With respect 'estimated delivery' - the time stated is for 'e-delivery' of the plaque art and postage of the Art-cards (the cards should ship in March). The plaques take a little longer as each artefact needs to be thoroughly researched, screen images gathered. Finally, all this information is pieced together into the unique, completed plaque design (which is then bound in perspex!).

    3: After a three year period, you will be given 'first dibs' to renew your sponsorship or, if not, the opportunity to have the Perspex plaque posted for you to keep in recognition of your commitment to the project.

    Dear Super-Sponsor! Not only will you receive all the features of the ‘Sci-Fi Sponsor’ package (an individual prop plaque dedicated to yourself, your name in the museum souvenir book and featured on the large museum entry plaque) but, by offering your support at this point, we’ll send you an original piece of screen used, classic ‘Doctor Who’ monster!

    Beautifully framed, displayed and individually numbered, you will receive a scale from the ‘Red Terrileptil’ that appeared in the memorable 1982, Fifth Doctor story ‘The Visitation’. This package will be strictly limited to 50 pieces. During my restoration of this wonderful alien adversary from the iconic show; a section of the belt area could not be reincorporated into the display. Despite having a sale value, I thought it would be wonderful to share this section of original prop/costume to supporters of the museum!

    And that is not all…as part of this package; you will also receive a year- long family pass to the museum!

    Dear Double Monster lover! In addition to all the features of the previous ‘Monster Prop- Terrileptil’ package we’ll send you an original piece of ANOTHER screen used, classic ‘Doctor Who’ monster!

    Not only will you receive a scale from the ‘Red Terrileptil’ but also a beautifully framed section of textured arm costume from ‘The Garm’ – who featured memorably in the 1983 classic, Fifth Doctor Who story ‘Terminus’. Together- both the framed ‘Terrileptil’ scale and ‘Garm skin’ section will make fascinating and highly rare additions to your ‘Doctor Who’/Sci-fi collections! And remember…they will only be available from this Kickstarter campaign!

    Due to the ultimate scarcity of this classic creature’s surviving arm section, this package will be strictly limited to 30 pieces. During my restoration of this wonderful alien, wolf-like creature, a section of the surviving arm could not be reincorporated into the display. Despite having a sale value, I thought it would be a nice idea to share this section of original prop/costume to supporters of the museum! Both ‘Terrileptil’ and ‘Garm’ sections will be presented on graphics designed by myself so they are ready to go on display!

    A warm museum welcome will be waiting for you dear friend! This mega-pledge will encompass all the fabulous features of the ‘Double Monster Prop Pack!’ PLUS... before the grand opening, come and visit the museum for a personal guided tour…with coffee and cake! I’ll take you through the history of the project and explain the story of the collection in as much detail as you would like. Any artefacts you would personally like to examine and/or photograph from ‘behind the glass’ will be accessible.

    This two hour visit will be a memorable opportunity to experience unique, screen-used items up close!

    Important Note: If you are unable to visit before opening, we can discuss a time to open the museum for a private viewing at a later date. Due to my necessity to work whilst launching the museum, obviously viewing times will need to work around this, but every effort will be made to accommodate a mutually suitable time!

    Dear fellow Sci-Fi adventurer…I look forward to our collaboration designing a new, completely exclusive artwork that I will create just for you! In addition to teaching Art, I have produced and sold artwork for many years (in a broad variety of media) and in recognition of your donation, will passionately set to work creating something truly special and unique. Whatever your genre leanings I’ll produce a dynamic and inventive composition… you simply tell me what you’d like and let me do the rest! My artwork is meticulous in detail and hence your commissioned piece will be approximately A5 in size, produced on A4 finest art paper (please see the recent ‘Morlock’ I have drawn for the Museum on either the Facebook or Museum Page to get a good idea of what to expect). What’s more, your artwork will be added to the illustrations for the upcoming museum souvenir book that I am currently writing and designing- alongside your published illustration will be your name as the patron of the piece!

    This package of course, includes all the features of the previous ‘Double Monster’’ option and in addition, a personal 'lifelong' membership to the museum complete with certificate!

    Please note- commissioned artworks do take me a little time to complete (ensuring the high quality I am known for) - especially if I have a few to do at once! 'Kickstarter' requires me to give a date now, so I have chosen a safe 'at the latest' for the commissioned work (September 2018)- hopefully I would have the commissions completed before. All printed materials (such as the art cards) will be sent out as quickly as possible (most likely in April- May at the latest) with the hand drawn artwork to follow. I will absolutely keep you informed as to the progress of your original artwork and endeavor to get it to you as soon as I can. To be absolutely fair, I will (as in the prop sponsorship) embark on commissioned pieces on a first come- first served basis (and give you a completion estimate).

    Just wow… what can I say? You have become an inter-galactic science-fiction patron! Recognising your incredible generosity, as well as everything featured before, I would like to offer you the use of the museum for a small party/gathering at some point in the future. I will specially close the museum on an agreed date so you can host an event or simply have a personal, relaxed visit with friends.

    I will be more than happy to be on hand to give a talk/guided tour if requested. Perhaps I could give a presentation about the genre and the collection to a group further afield?

    In the long term, you and your family or friends can visit the museum for free with a family lifelong 'Friend of the Museum' membership and check in to see the development of the project. I hope to host special guest days at the museum and you will be very much on the VIP list for all such events and given insider information well in advance.

    You will of course receive ALL the previous rewards as part of this package (relic monster cards, sponsored plaque, name included in all ‘donor locations’ and a personally commissioned piece of Art).
