Hello, my name is Duane, I've been doing art under the name Wanderweird and traveling for the last several years. I'm currently staying in Portland, OR, and am trying to print my first book, REMEMBER, an illustrated narrative set in the geometric thoughtscapes of my drawings.
The book represents a yearlong process of trying to explain reality to myself, how we create models to explain our realities, and how these models can take the place of and be confused for reality. I wrote and illustrated the book while backpacking across the United States, it was completed in 8 different states and 30 different cities from January 1 to December 21, 2012.
I've printed a few small runs of this series from various print shops around the country, but high printing costs have kept me from being able to print a large number, or pricing them reasonably. I've finally found a proper printer, I just need to place a large order to get the discount.
I truly feel that this book can positively affect the collective consciousness of humanity, and help create a transcendent mythology and culture, not based on the bones of past civilizations, but on our own living thoughts.You can read the entire book on my website, free of charge, at http://wanderweird.com/remember.html
Thanks for reading, and for your support.
Risks and challenges
There shouldn't be too many challenges to overcome on this project, I've got the book finished and formatted, have researched all the printers, I've even printed out some prototypes already.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
