Have you ever wondered what you're inter-dimensional doppelganger looks like? Or if your spouse was really a freak from another planet?? Or maybe you're like me, and you just love weird, goofy monsters!! Whatever the case, I've got the perfect solution!

THEM!! - A Collaborative Art Project

Hello! I'm a full time artist from Houston, TX and I create weird, colorful, imaginative monsters for a living. I had my first solo art show back in February and displayed a wall of vintage photographs that I painted over, creating weird monsters and aliens from actual photographs found at flea markets! It was a huge success and since then, I've done dozens more! Now I'm opening up the opportunity to have me to transform YOU or your loved ones into crazy monsters of your own!

 Basically how this works is, depending on what level you back this project at, you'll get one, or more photograph commissions from me. Once fully funded, I'll have you send me an 8x10 high-res photo via dropbox or email, I'll print it, and make a one of a kind original painting out of you!

I'm also making an art zine out of the vintage photographs I've done in the past, each reward also comes with my new zine THEM!

I hope you'll join in and become a part of my ever-growing monster family!

Risks and challenges

The only challenges I see coming up would be getting photos that are difficult to work with, but once you've backed this project I'll send a photo reference of Do's/Don'ts to give you an idea of how to take a photo that will turn out best. I'm also pretty flexible on what I can work with so I think we'll be fine!
