You arrive in the first town you’ve seen all game, your gold coins burning a hole in your purse and a list of supplies as long as your arm. You have come here to trade but you are sure you’ll pick up some quests along the way. It’s a bustling market town, packed with grizzled adventurers and fresh faced merchant folk alike.
As you look around at the crowd, you can’t help but wonder what brought them all here...
Faemarket is a collaborative anthology set in that bustling market! With five totally new short comics from a small group of amazingly talented creators.
Lets get straight into it, shall we?
The main reward of this project is, of course, the book. Twenty four pages of high fantasy adventures printed in full colour.
As a bonus, we’re also producing a collection of prints and merch by the artists involved!
Our first reward is a sticker sheet of the of the cocktail menu from The Cod And Skillet (featured in the book!) Each cocktail recipe has an affect you can use in your own TTRPG game. I recommend the Fairy Berry ;)
We have a great collection of prints & things coming for you, and these will be revealed along the way!
Wow!! Thanks to your overwhelming support we're able to make this ADORABLE wooden pin a reality. Everyone in the Print Paladin tier will get this along with all the other great merch listed.
Thank you so much everyone, we're all overwhelmed by your support!
But who the hell are we?
We're a small group of UK artists who love high fantasy and Tabletop RPGS. We come from a whole range of backgrounds and work on a bunch of different projects, so this whole collaboration has been done together in our spare time.
Abbigayle Bircham is an artist from North London with a degree in Film and Moving Image Production. Currently working part-time as a production assistant in podcasting and radio, she uses her spare time to illustrate and build her creative portfolio, as well as write and draw pages for her webcomic “The Devil’s Advocate”.
She also mainly plays an Aasimar Paladin for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons, enjoys feeding birds in her local parks and likes to do silly voices to make people laugh.
Anna Bohac is a storyboard artist with a focus in action. She graduated from Falmouth University with a BA(Hons) degree in Animation and Visual Effects, has studied under the tutelage of esteemed directors in animation, and has completed a Calarts development workshop in Visual Storytelling.
Anna runs two webcomics, Peppermint Junction and Monster Corp. alongside her work in storyboarding. In her spare time, she trains in figure skating and rides a motorbike (not at the same time!).
Samn Judge & Soph Price are an artist/writer power couple.
Samn is a UK comic artist and the sole creator of the webcomic Where The Wolves Are, a modern fantasy adventure about queer monster girls looking out for each other and holding hands. They also write dry comedy comics about the retail day job that pays for their self publishing habit but their main inspiration comes from cartoons for five year olds, and the creepy side of English folklore.
Their main DnD character is dwarf fighter called Fishbone, who was fired from the dwarf mafia for being bad at crime.
Soph is a writer born and bred in Merseyside. She studied BA Film and Television Production at the University of Westminster, graduating in 2016 and leaving with a passion for screenwriting. She was longlisted in the BBC drama writers room 2018 and is currently writing a dark fantasy novel for kids that earned her a place at Penguin Random House’s 2018 WriteNow scheme. The spooky english countryside is her favourite backdrop for her stories.
Her favourite DnD character is Remulus, a kenku wizard-turned-vampire. It was a rough game. (And definitely not Fishbone’s fault.)
Beth Grieveson is a comic artist and illustrator living in central Norwich.
As of early 2019, she is undergoing her final unit of a BA Illustration degree at Norwich University of The Arts. She is currently working on a graphic novel adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘The Dreams in The Witch House,’ which has the condensed title of ‘Witch House,’ to be pitched and entered into competitions in 2020. Unsurprisingly, she has a fascination in the horror narrative in comics, and has accrued a small collection of animal parts as reference material.
Beth mainly plays as Naveen Tunrida, a booksmart tiefling wizard who keeps accidentally setting things on fire. To her horror, these things include books.
Rachel Cush is a comic artist and illustrator based in Inverness.
She works as a full time artist and attends many comic conventions and events around the UK. She’s fascinated by mythology, folklore, and nature, and is the creator of Lycan, a dark urban fantasy webcomic about dealing with the werewolf virus plaguing a city. She has a masters degree in Zoology so tends to draw a lot of animals and fantasy creatures.
Rachel’s D+D character is Finnegan, a shy but blunt human druid from a small island who currently has a pocket full of sausages he took from the queen’s birthday party (they just kept bringing more out).
And now for the boring part about money and risks!
The majority of the money from this project is going towards printing costs for the book and merch. Then there's taxes and kickstarter fees and finally any additional profit will be split equally between the creators involved. The more you pledge, the more our wonderful writers and artists get paid!
This is my third kickstarter, so I am confident that we can fulfil everything without a hitch. Of course unforeseen circumstances and issue with production can change things, but in the event of a delay my team and I will be here and on social media keeping you up to date.
