THANK YOU FOR YOUR OVERWHELMING SUPPORT!

If you missed out on our Kickstarter campaign, you can find more BOSS FIGHT! Posters and Prints at the link below-

Hello, I'm Nick Derington and I'm eager to share with you an art project two years in the making.

BOSS FIGHT!

This project consists of three illustrations that recreate the nervous excitement that meant reaching a game's hard earned final moments.  A testament to the hours spent building skills, solving puzzles and defeating all the minions that stood in your way towards the game's final confrontation.
The Boss Fight!
A tense and beloved moment shared by everyone who had the determination to see a game to it's triumphant, visceral end. Boss Fights were a big deal.  So much larger than what a dozen flickering pixels could ever represent, this art project hopes to interpret and capture that fleeting feeling and make it physical.

STRETCH GOAL- UPDATED 2/14!

UPDATE- 2/14- Stretch Goal #1 WAS REACHED! Every one who pledged at any of the 3-print set tiers will now receive the below pictured Giclee print! Read onward for the original text- We'll have more news soon!

-------------

Wow- first up, thank you EVERYONE who has already donated to the project- we hit our funding goal within the FIRST HOUR of release- that's very humbling. 

Thank you.

With that said- we've got a new image to add for our first STRETCH GOAL! "A Plumber's Regret" is an 8x10 archival quality giclee print, on coldpress natural watercolor paper, signed and numbered by the artist. If our campaign hits $18,000, everyone who backs the project at any of the complete 3-poster set reward levels, will get one of these included, FREE of charge! So if you've already backed the project, spread the word for us, and if we hit our goal, you'll get one of these little guys! Again, thank you so much for all the support!

A Robot at Rest

This whole campaign has been such an amazing experience. Not only have we funded the project, but we hit our first stretch goal with ease, meaning everyone who pledges at any of the 3-print set level will get the 'A Plumber's Regret' 8x10 print.

STRETCH GOAL #2

We've got a new image to add for our second STRETCH GOAL! "A Robot at Rest" is an 8x10 archival quality giclee print, on coldpress natural watercolor paper, signed and numbered by the artist. If our campaign doubles the original stretch goal of $18,000, and hits $36,000, everyone who backs the project at any of the complete 3-poster set reward levels, will also get one of these included, FREE of charge- ON TOP of the previous stretch goal print! So if you've already backed the project, please spread the word for us, and if we hit our new goal, you'll get one of these as well!

THANK YOU.

PRINTING

Nakatomi Print Geeks
Nakatomi Print Geeks

Printing will be handled by Tim Doyle and the dedicated print crew of Nakatomi Print Labs. Nakatomi produces their prints by hand- from mixing the colors, burning the screens, slinging the squeegee, and racking the prints for drying. This creates a unique artisinal quality that can't be duplicated by any other means.

The best part is that Nakatomi is located here in Austin, TX. This allows me to personally oversee all stages of production while taking advantage of Nakatomi's reputation for incredibly fast printing and fast shipping. Tim is not only a great artist and printer but a friend of 20 years.

SHIPPING 

Shipping will begin within ONE MONTH of the end of this funded project. No longtime waiting like you may have encountered with other kickstarts!  We literally have an entire silk-screen print shop and shipping center ready and at our disposal for this project.

Each print will be safely rolled in kraft paper and shipped in a double-walled telescoping crush-proof tube, with metal endcaps! We can and will ship internationally.

Behold, pixelated dreams made physical.

Risks and challenges

For this project, the risks and challenges are very small. The art work is already done and the printing arrangements are entirely in line - we just need to know how many prints to produce. We believe Kickstarter is the ideal place to take this project to make sure that every one who wants to get on board CAN do so.

Instead of waiting months (or sometimes years) for the delivery of your Kickstarter rewards, this project will begin shipping within one month of the end of the funded project. NakatomiInc.com will handle all production and shipping. While they are a small mom-and-pop nerd-shop, they've been producing and shipping screenprints worldwide for 6 years now - this is what they do. They've successfully fulfilled literally tens of thousands of orders to date. No matter how big this project may go, they've got the fulfillment covered - from print shop to shipping to customer service, everything is already squared away and in place. If this project goes SUPER BIG, production time to fulfill every order might take a bit longer. It wouldn't delay the start of printing, it would simply lengthen production time to get all the prints printed and shipped out the door. It would take a staggeringly large amount of backers to extend the month-long production time we've planned for.
