Hi, my name is Mr Muju

I'm an artist based in St Ives, a coastal town in Cornwall, UK.  

My partner Miss Muju & I based our Art Studio here 10 years ago. I produce drawings, paintings & prints, and Miss Muju produces limited edition sculptures in a range of different mediums. We both work full time on a variety of creative projects, and have been exhibiting and selling artwork to a worldwide audience for over 10 years. 

You can check out more of our work at www.mujuworld.co.uk

Mujuworld is an imaginary dimension where the landscapes are alive and populated by a diverse range of Spirits.  The natural environment of Mujuworld is cared for by a wide variety of beings, including Tree Spirits, Leaf Spirits, Ocean Guardians and Cosmic Owls.  You may find them wandering amongst the Happy Hills & Mystic Mountains. 

There are many stories to discover within Mujuworld  and our mission is to explore and find them all. 

Magic Seeds Comic - Working Cover

I have always wanted to create a Mujuworld Comic for a worldwide audience.  So I started to develop a comic book idea that used images to create a totally visual narrative, a story suitable for all ages no matter what language you speak.

The process of storyboarding this comic has taken many months of development and editing.

I now have the complete book worked out and illustrated.

The inking has been finished and I am now working on the final colour artwork.

There will be over 60 pages of full colour illustrations in the book.

The story features a Muju Spirit on a journey into the unknown, overcoming challenges, meeting new friends & exploring new dimensions within the mysterious Mujuworld.

I have already invested a huge amount of time & energy into this project & I hope you will be inspired to support me in finishing & publishing this first Mujuworld Tale.

Pre-orders of the book will enable me to fund the first print edition & share this story with fans of Mujuworld all over the world. 

The book will be hardback A4 size, printed on heavyweight uncoated paper and produced in the UK by a trusted book printer with a good reputation for quality.

Signed copies are available in a limited quantity, as well as some special sculpture rewards featuring characters from the story. 

Original ink drawings featuring characters from the book are also available, please check out all the Rewards we have on offer below :)

How do I do that?  

You can adjust your pledge amount at any point to add extras to your reward options. Simply click the "manage your pledge" button here on the page, and then you can increase your pledge by the desired amount, without having to change your selected reward tier.  For example :

Risks and challenges

I expect to deliver this project on time as I have completed a large amount of the artwork already. The book will be printed in the UK by a company I have used before and trust their quality and delivery times.
I have already factored in some time to accommodate any obstacles we may encounter.
Myself and my partner Miss Muju have successfully completed several Kickstarter projects in the past few years so have a good understanding of the whole process.
I will keep all backers informed if we have any unexpected delays.
