Hello! My name is Joel Daniel Phillips and welcome to my Kickstarter!

Four years ago I sat down for a glass of scotch with my older brother's roommate from college, Pierce Brown.

Several glasses later, we found ourselves chatting art, dreams, creative visions, and most memorably about Pierce's recently finished novel: Red Rising. We dreamed about creative collaboration, and how someday, if Pierce was ever published, I would create art for his book. Later that night, sigils for colors and paintings of space battles danced in my dreams.

On January 28th 2014, Red Rising was officially offered to the public via Random House. True to his word, Pierce allowed me the honor of helping to visualize some of the world he created, and for the last three years I've been working with the wonderful folks over at Random House to design elements for the Red Rising trilogy.

Today, we are excited to offer a selection of limited edition screen prints and collectibles based off my original illustrations. 

Pierce Brown has created an amazing universe for us to explore, and we both would love to see elements of that magical place come to life on their own.

Help us make that dream a reality!

First off, thank you all so much for your support. This campaign hasn't even been live a week and we've already passed all of our wildest expectations. Not to worry, though! We aren't into half measures, and we've decided to up the ante. 

If we reach $45,000 we will release a brand new (currently in production) Gold Propaganda poster. Pierce and I have been brainstorming, and have settled on creating a military recruiting poster for Grays on Venus, featuring an Iron Rain. 

To help you reach that goal we are going to release a few more goodies. Get stoked.

Risks and challenges

Much like graduating from the Institute, every Kickstarter can be tough to complete!

Luckily I'm teaming up with some of the best printers in the industry to ensure that all our rewards are of the highest quality and are delivered in time!

SHIPPING: Paragon Press in Berkeley, CA will handle all the shipping to ensure that all orders are packed professionally and safely.

PRINTING: Monolith Press in Alameda, CA will be printing the screen prints and Paragon Press in Berkeley, CA will printing the giclees, both are printers we've worked with before and I know they're going to come out great.

CUSTOM FRAMING: Paragon Press in Berkeley, CA will also be handling all the custom framing. They do a lot of framing for me and for my gallery, I know they stand behind their promise of delivering archival and professionally framed prints.

Please note, the product images used in this Kickstarter are digital mock-ups, the final products may vary.
