About this project
This project is to fund the first issue of Lamprey Boy!
Star of the infamous Rubba Teets. Now, I want to put the little aquatic simpleton on his own adventure. I plan on showing this at the Detroit Fan Fare and Lawn Con 4. The book, at present, will have a color cover and will have 32 black and white interior pages (36 in All). Meant to be in a more "for all ages" format than my previous, more mature, Rubba Teets. Similar books to compare to: Art Baltazar's Patrick the Wolf Boy or Levi Krause's Strobe. If you like the strange and weird, you'll love this book. You'll get one joke after next! Your funny bone will need some serious repair!
Lamprey Boy is a tale of a little aquatic cutie pie and his exciting adventures with his crazy odd ball friends. Friends like Honeywell Dingdong; a furious hot dog, F-Duk, a little duck with a very naughty mouth (which will not be naughty for this book! Or he'll be in trouble), and all of Lamprey's family that, to Honeywell's great distress, lives in his 1927, rustic ranch home.
ALSO ALL REWARDS WILL HAVE THEIR NAME ON LAMPREY BOY #1, THANK YOU PAGE!
If I meet my goal and beyond
I will start work on the naughtier Rubba Teets #2. Possibly making that also in the process. If we go even further I will produce both books in color.
UPDATE! Woo! We hit the goal!
FIELD GOAL that is...goodness. Well let's throw up some stretch goals just in case it gets more crazy in this party house! WEEEEEEEEEE!
$1000: Both Lamprey Boy #1 and Rubba Teets #2 will be made (Rubba Teets #2 may not be until November though) and the additional reward will be the pdf of Rubba Teets #2 and a signed copy to anyone $10 and up. $25 and up will get a bonus 8 x 10 sketch. $100 or more will get a bonus 12 x 12 painting.
$1500: Same as above, but both books will be in color (color versions will be in November 2013). $10 and up will get pdf and signed versions of both books (3 books and 3 pdfs) $25 and up will get a glow in the dark action figure (woo scary) and $100 and up will get the super secret Lamprey Plush doll (November on delivery)
I plan on using the money to print a black and white run of Lamprey Boy #1. I would like to do maybe a banner with a little bit and the rest will be used to print the first issue. And I'll be supporting my local printer in the process.
I am excited about this opportunity to give everybody something unique and be a part of this awesome journey.
UPDATE: THE LAMPREY BOY COVER!
Check it out the cover created with watercolor and Photoshop! One randomly chosen backer will win the watercolor the cover is based on. So happy backing!

There should not be any issues that will delay this project. I have most of the book and the rewards all ready created and set to go. Unless I hit my stretch goals or some act of Cthulhu, we should be all good.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
