About this project
About Kooky Creeps:
Kooky Creeps is a limited edition set of four pre-cut ready to assemble papercraft art masks. Designed by paper artist Matt Hawkins, each set comes with all the pieces you'll need to raise from the dead four spooky, kooky characters. Just add glue and your face! More than just an art print this is truly a collaborative art project that you bring to life. Each set will be packaged in a handsomely eerie coffin portfolio, signed and hand numbered by the artist. Kooky Creeps is a limited edition of 1000 sets after that they are gone for eternity. Each mask features an adjustable headband to fit all size of human skulls and a hanger in the back so they can be displayed on the walls of your haunt as well as your face. Each set will be shipped flat to avoid bending and folding.
Meet the CREEPS:
The blood curdling beginnings of Kooky Creeps:
As an artist and papertoy maker I've worked on some amazing projects over the years but there has always been a few ideas that have haunted the back corners of my mind and sketch books that have never seen the light of day. Recently I created a list of 15 dream projects I would like to design and make ranging from a kids pop-up book, to a board game to an 18 hole miniature golf course. One of these projects I thought I could knock off pretty easy to get the ball rolling on my designers bucket list was a set of artisan Halloween masks. What could be more fun than design a set of whimsically weird Halloween masks. From this Kooky Creeps was hatched. I'd appreciate your support to help me knock-dead this first project on my list.
Paper is humble, versatile, easy to source and after the fun is all done it is recyclable! I can source and produce these locally. No need to ship over seas from a factory. Not only proudly made in the USA but proudly made just down the street! I love making papercraft projects like this because it creates a collaboration between me and you. This isn't something you buy and put on a shelf your participation is necessary to bring my creations to life and in this case they really come to life when you wear them.
The root of all evil!
My goal for this project is $6000 this will be enough to help me produce my first run of Kooky Creeps and provide some fun incentives to you the backers. The cost breakdown is approximately this:
- $2500 will go towards the printing and die cutting
- $2000 will go towards making 2 dies to do the cutting
- $250 for the clear bags used for the packaging
- $400 for the 13" X 19" stay flat mailers
- $850 will go towards the shipping cost of these over-sized mailers
Rewards and Backing levels
At every backing level you will receive a downloadable mini-mask "Wolfmaniac" designed exclusively for Kooky Creeps backers that you can print at home and make. All contributions of any amount are certainly appreciated but the magic number here is $25. At this level and above you will receive a full set of Kooky Creeps when they get produced! Above twenty five we have all kinds of fun stuff added on to the basic mask set so check out the backing levels to the right.
Thanks for taking the time to look over my project and I hope you will help me fuel my passion for fun whimsical papercraft art and get Kooky Creeps up and rolling .
Risks and challenges
Producing and designing papercraft art is what I do for a living, it's really in my wheelhouse. The only risks I see in this project would be possible delays at press if the printer gets overbooked and backed up.
And maybe a slight risk of haunting.
