An art zine showcasing the creations of famed horror Author, H.P. Lovecraft, as envisioned by over 50 amazing illustrators and artists!

Fans of the horrific and the unknown, pay heed! My name is Trevor Henderson, and my Kickstarter co-organizer is Kathryn Bright! I'm assembling an art zine titled "Puffed Shoggoths - A H.P. Lovecraft Art Zine" that will be dedicated to the monstrous and mysterious world of H.P. Lovecraft, one of the worlds most influential horror authors! 

"Puffed Shoggoths" will be perfect-bound, and will feature 72 pages of grey-scale artwork from over 50 amazing illustrators, artists and comic makers, all paying tribute to the bleak and terrifying world of H.P. Lovecraft. The cover will be in full-colour, on a thick card-stock of the highest quality. Lovecrafts' written works were filled with monstrous gods, horrifying cults, and an enveloping sense of inescapable doom. Just some of the good stuff you can expect to find in this book!

"Puffed Shoggoths" will debut at the "Toronto Comics and Arts Festival" this May, and will include tons of wonderfully talented artists such as:

As well as many, many others! But it can't happen without YOUR HELP!

I need funding to get the book printed and available at TCAF this May! For $15, you will pre-order a copy of "Puffed Shoggoths", as well as purchase a digital copy. In additional tiers, I have a ton of rewards prepared, such as sticker sets, prints, embroidered pins, silk-screen prints, and even original art and paintings!

And finally, we'll be offering a couple different monster themed sticker sets, including..

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest challenge is meeting my expected goal. Without reaching that $6000 goal, the book will not be made, and all of the amazing incentives (stickers, prints, screen prints, original art, embroidered pins) will never be made and distributed. If we reach the goal, all of the incentives will be made and shipped, and we will have enough copies of the zine to distribute at a variety of upcoming conventions, starting with the Toronto Comics and Arts Festival.

All of the incentives to backers will start being shipped towards the end of May 2013 with an expected delivery in June 2013.

  • Thanks for asking!

    It's $3600 for me to print 500 copies of the book, 200 of which are for backers.

    Approximately $900 is going to be used to produce all the incentive rewards (stickers, art prints, pins, etc.)

    About $1500 has been estimated as shipping costs for all 200 backers! (shipping from Canada can be INSANE.)

    All of the illustrators have contributed their work for free, everyone contributed out of interest in the subject matter and wanting to be part of the book.

    If i exceed my goal of $6000, all funds will go towards an honorarium of money to pay pack the contributors on a page by page basis!

    I hope that clarifies things a bit!
