The blue book of ideas

CA$ 2,290

WELCOME!

First, thank you for taking a moment to read this!

I created this new, 34 page spectacular over the course of 2014 and 2015; 8 months to draw in total! I now am looking for financial support to get done and into your hands!

Sadly, Washo Roboto is not in the reward system...but it's in the book!

ABOUT THE BOOK

This is possibly my most intense work ever. It's a complete break away from my previous sci-fi comics.

Essentially, it's an abstract comic book LOADED with characters, thoughts and ideas ranging from the mundane to the disturbing. It's full of facts, fiction, sarcasm and off-the-wall musings that I've collected while at my job in a call centre, reading the news, feeling the burn of day to day life. It's FULL of references to pop/cartoon culture, witty observations, global concerns and human ramblings we all usually keep to ourselves or at least, to within our closest circle.

Every page is a universe and story of it's own.

This book is illustrated using the purest form of my style and has been left as unfiltered as possible as to allow for maximum flavour with minimal poisoning.

The blue book of ideas - SPECS:

-The BLUE BOOK OF IDEAS is entirely illustrated in sweet n' smooth, blue ball point pen.

-It will be printed on a smooth husky 70lbs paper in blue. Of course, this is to represent the original art to the most accurate level.

-The final printed size is 8.5 x 11 inches. I did not want to shrink or enlarge the printed size versus the original pieces.

-The cover will be at 12pts and have a matt laminate finish with an embossed title.

-The complete page count will be 34 pages give or take 2 pages. Probably leaning towards the "give" at this point.

-This will be a limited run of 200 copies. Should we exceed the project goal, consideration will be given to increase the amount of copies to meet demand.

-The estimated print deadline is set for January 2016. I like being on time so I don't expect this to vary very much.

Risks and challenges

There are very little risks since the art is completed and contact with the printer has been made for some time now.

At the current stage I am at, all that's left is to scan and fix for print which is a tedious yet simple task. This is why I have placed a delivery time for January 2016, a perfect time to receive a nice little something in the mail!
