Silly Spooky Speedway!
Silly Spooky Speedway is a fun and imaginative book by Chris Raimo, full of monsters, ghosts and more racing towards the finish line!
Welcome race fans, my name is Chris Raimo and I am an artist/illustrator looking to bring the world of "Silly Spooky Speedway" to life in a brand new book!
Ever since my Dad introduced me to Hot Wheels and models when I was a kid, I've been obsessed with cars, Rat Fink, and hot rod culture. I've also been a life long fan of monsters, ghosts, and all things spooky, and have recently have been mashing these two worlds together, illustrating unique vehicles with equally as unique drivers.
In honor of my late father, I have passed on my love of hot rods and cars to my twin sons Evan and Oliver and have created this book dedicated to the 3 generations of car enthusiasts and to share our love of this culture with like-minded others!
So why are we here? Well I'd love to collect all of these kooky characters and vehicles into a fun and easy to read book for all ages! "Silly Spooky Speedway" will be 8in H x 10in W, 32 illustrated full color pages and hardcover featuring glow in the dark elements!
As of now most of the work on the book is complete and almost ready to print (pending a few last minute additions and editing), and with help from this Kickstarter, I will be able to make this a reality!
Check out the cover, some of the pages, and the numbers and names of all the racers!
So what's in it for you? The book, shirts, racer sponsorships, and even original artwork used in the book! Check out some of the rewards below:
I hope your just excited as I am to bring this project to life and I hope to have you as a backer of "Silly Spooky Speedway" !
Risks and challenges
This is my second Kickstarter and I have learned A LOT this time around. My goal as always is to get the books/rewards done and shipped out as soon as possible, but there is always a chance for some hiccups and bumps in the road with printing/production. Anything that pops up I will address to the best of my abilities and make it work.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
