About

 It all started four years ago, when I had a very disturbing idea that made me laugh for quite some time. It actually still makes me laugh.  I sketched it a zillion different ways; added dialogue, took out dialogue and really played with it... hahah. After ditching dialogue altogether, I then began to figure out how to make this all pantomime and work with the dark elegant finish. I couldn’t figure out how to best illustrate my story with the most punch. I tried an “ordered, boxed in world” and it felt sterile and void of any character. It wasn’t until I tried the "vomit approach" (patent pending) that I really started to like the results. There’s something about drawing all over the page without boxes or borders that's fun as heck. It also really compliments the insanity of the finish.

 The story itself is a romantic dark disturbing comedy. You'll love it until the end, and then a subset of specific people will love it more. Most of you will just shake your head.

I had to deal with a ton of edits and a few unnecessary pages that I didn’t really think added to the flow. This book isn’t for the faint of heart and definitely not child friendly. The drawing definitely improves over time. Some of the drawings are from my original batch of sketches four years ago, and some have been redrawn hundreds of times. This has been a true labour of love, and you won’t be disappointed with the result.

 I always knew I wanted the colour to be a halftone pattern, taking a bunch of inspiration from Archie comics.  All the colouring in the book was done in photoshop using the scanned skins from apples as my pallet. I spent a long while tweaking the CMYK channels to better control all the dots on the page.

I won’t give away the ending as it’s part of the mystery, but I will offer you the first 7 pages as a PDF, a sneak peak to the final grandiose entertainment package.

20 bucks (Limit 100) will secure you your own copy of the book, with a thank you and signature.

50 bucks (Limit 50) will secure you your own copy of the book, with the most disgusting/perverted thing i can think of on the inside cover. 

150 bucks (limit 150) I'll Ink you a picture/scene/thing of whatever you'd like on some illustration board.

I’m turning to kickstarter to see if I can get some support in the printing of 500 copies of my book. I'll then be sending them to publishing houses to see what happens. Until then im saving up, but here's to helping me get there faster. Thanks for all the support!

Risks and challenges

I'm qualified to overcome the challenges to this project, because it's already done, inked and coloured. I'm also a print production artist as my full time gig, so this will be done right and will look great. It's kinda my job.

I just need the right amount of dough to send it to the printer and get it printed the way i want. Any Extra that happens will fund future books of this nature! I've already got the next story in my mind.

Here's the 7 pages again!
