Wendell the Wendigo is searching for the perfect outfit to a dinner party—by going through everyone else's clothes. Things are exactly what they seem, and what’s obvious becomes even more so.
This book normalizes the use of the pronouns they/them when referring to Wendell. This is an adult's children's book, which might terrify children, but is hilarious for adults.
The book has 28 pages of content, with extra end pages and doodles. It will be printed 8x10" softcover with perfect binding.
- The acrylic charms and postcards
Several reward tiers include pieces silkcreened by me. Silkscreen is a labor-intensive process in which you make a design on a transparent sheet of acetate, which is transferred onto a mesh screen using a light-sensitive emulsion and an exposing unit. Ink is then pressed through the screen onto your material. The result is a limited amount ("edition") of unique prints. There may be small inconsistencies across the prints, which is also part of the process.
- The 12x8" silkscreen print for Guest of Honor tier and above has variant editions with different colors. You will receive a print whose design looks like the one in the example image, but with color variations. An example image is below.
- The aprons are 23x15" with straps to tie around your waist. The straps are 34" long each (so your waist measurement should be under 80" around).
Previews for stretch goals will be updated by the weekend of whenever the goals are reached!

Risks and challenges
I have prior experiences with self-publishing, packaging, and shipping. Backers will be informed of any delays in the process of this project, with issues resolved as soon as possible.
The art for this book, the charms, and the postcards are completely finished. The type's first pass has been done; I need to make edits to make it more readable. The limited edition silkscreen prints and aprons were also made prior to the launch of the kickstarter.
Thanks for the support! It means a lot to me. Feel free to message me on kickstarter, social media, or email.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
