----------

Welcome! CreatureBox features the combined efforts of Dave Guertin and Greg Baldwin--character designers with a passion for cartooning and vintage science fiction. We've come to you and Kickstarter with the hope of producing our first premium art book collecting over five years of our adventures behind the drawing table. Thanks for your continued support!

THE MONSTER VOLUME
Within these pages you will discover stranded spacemen, maniacal robots and countless zany creatures in all shapes and sizes. But most importantly, you'll find adventures from our youth--a time when imagination ruled the day and mysterious monsters ruled the backyard--wrapped in a contemporary exploration of design.

A True Collection
With high quality paper and printing, this 140 page hardcover measures 8.5" x 12.5" and collects our full body of work from the last five years. The Monster Volume includes over 35 pages of new designs alongside remastered versions of our sold out sketchbooks (Thoughts, Scribbles + Madness Volumes 1-3 and Palindrone Robot Supply).

Books Are Alive
We're big fans of digital yet we feel some books are designed to be held while flipping from one page to the next. Our passion for vintage magazines and weathered textures is made for the page, and we've worked tirelessly to ensure The Monster Volume is worthy of your bookshelf or coffee table.

All Original Content
We absolutely love Batman and Spider-Man, but they're not in this book. From comics to monsters to a single lost unicorn (seriously), The Monster Volume is all about independent exploration.

For the Whole Family
As cartoonists who actively look back on their youth, we wanted to provide a body of work that could excite the character designer in all of us. Whether you’re a kid holding your first comic, or a seasoned fan of a niche sci-fi drama, The Monster Volume is a collection for all ages.

We Can't Do It Without You
With your support we'd love to bring this collection to life and complete the first chapter in our journey. All funds received will directly support the printing and delivery of the book for an estimated November release.
