NEW REWARDS ANNOUNCED!! SEE BELOW!!
In 2016, on an otherwise normal day here at the Source Point Press bunker, we were rolling through an inbox full of submissions. There was the usual mix of great, good, and bad stuff and Josh and I were responding to each appropriately. Then, there was Rebecca's...
Rebecca Martz-Burley sent us something really different. Firstly, she described herself as a "thread artist." We were intrigued. Secondly, she was clearly a huge nerd for the classics of blood, guts, and horror. Us too!! She sent us a bunch of cross-stitch patterns from her work at Demon Monkey Craft....
We were blown away! But, there were a couple of problems. The biggest was the sheer cost of the licenses to work on all the ideas Rebecca had would be well out of our ability to cover. The second, we didn't know the first thing about a craft book.
We reached out to Rebecca and asked her "If you had to narrow it down to ONE title to focus on, what would it be? What's your favorite?"
NO HESITATION. EVIL DEAD II!! We couldn't have agreed more. The film seemed to fit in perfectly with the kind of creativity and comedic mindset you'd have to have to both handle these cross stitch patterns AND display them in your home. Luckily, Studio Canal, agreed. We acquired the license, and we were off to the races.
Rebecca immediately set to work devising new patterns (along with artist Teri Heidemeyer), making mock ups, and generally being a genius with a needle and thread. Josh went to work making sure everything was getting the proper approval by both the Studio and Bruce Campbell.
*Quality and existence of Deadite may vary....
In the meantime, we started reaching out to the crafter's community to gauge interest. Turns out, the crafter's community is full of weird and wonderful horror nerds, just like the comics community! We couldn't be happier to be bringing this book to the masses, starting with this Kickstarter campaign and to be helping Rebecca get to the next level with her art. Keep an eye on her, this won't be her last book!
