      Hello Everyone - Chet had to put the sketches on hold until he finished his Ego Death Kickstarter campaign. He wants to ensure that he doesn't create in haste. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

      Hello Midian - I just sent you a message with more details, but to answer your question directly: the Tommy Lee and Chet tattoo collaboration tier has already been bought out. You can still get a Chet tattoo design though, check out the "Chimera" ($500) Monster Reward!

    13. Videodrome_0.small

      Creator Midian on October 9, 2012

      i am interested in the tattoo tier. although, i am worried about where i am located & how much of a problem that would be in working on a place to meet up...

      i live in Portland, OR...
      i could meet halfway near where Chet is located, which would be San Francisco, since i have family nearby...

      i am also curious as to what size this tattoo would be. is it a half sleeve, a whole arm, a half leg, a full leg? i know that this is hard to explain cause everyones body type is different & it depends on where a person would want the tattoo at on their body. i would just want some more explanation on this before fully deciding to commit to such an investment. not that the investment wouldnt be magnificent when it is finished, i just like knowing everything that im committing to ahead of time. Congrats on the project being backed, i look forward to the documentary.

      thanks,

      midian

      Hello Zyote - I've been pushing the project on "The Official Chet Zar Art Group", "Tool Army", "Tool Group", "Last Rites Gallery", and "Friday Night Art Dorks", as well as on the page I created "I Like to Paint Monsters". We've also been getting play on quite a few personal pages - some individuals with a significant amount of notoriety. Thanks for all of the suggestions, and the compliments! I've been very faithful to a daily KS update, update sharing on FB, and other related postings...not just to keep the buzz going (which of course is part of it), but moreover to keep people in the loop so they can experience the journey as it transpires! Still trying to reach out to a few other high profile folks as well. Very exciting, and so happy for the constant show of support!

    22. Chetzar.small

      Creator Zyote on October 2, 2012

      Awesome, i didn't see that link. nice work. Are there any facebook groups with people into this sort of art? perhaps, dare i say it going on deviant art too? :-) I reckon as it gets near the end, would be good to push an email update out to all the existing backers too, asking if they'll jump up to the next tier. Kickstarts i've been helping with in the past have had good success with things like that. I think the sample videos, and footage you've been sharing has been ace too.

    23. Stan_drawing_closeup.small

      Creator Mike Correll on October 1, 2012

      Hey Zyote - We did get play on the Tool site news feed! We were also featured on the Creepmonster blog, and got a tweet from Director of "Super Size Me", Morgan Spurlock; but you are right any additional exposure would be great! I'm certainly open to suggestions! Although we are nearing the goal, exceeding it will ensure that the Documentary is extraordinary, as the budget goal is the bare necessity. Thanks again for all of your support, ideas, and contributions!

    24. Chetzar.small

      Creator Zyote on October 1, 2012

      Any art forums, or blogs, or famous people who we could get to link to this page?

      Has anyone contacted the tool band site? Lots of fans of Chet's work there. Maybe a tweet from Maynard would help?

    25. Stan_drawing_closeup.small

      Creator Mike Correll on September 28, 2012

      Creator Zyote on September 28, 2012

      Hello Midian - The book "Black Magick: The Art of Chet Zar" has not been released yet. It is scheduled to be released around Christmas time! It was exciting to have the Publisher donate the limited edition reward, and I have had several people ask if any additional books can/will be added. Unfortunately we will not be provided with any additional books, but they will be available for purchase quite soon! In regard to a copy of the finalized Documentary - we are seeking a way to handle some form of distribution, though it is likely it will occur at a higher level after shopping the Documentary through the Film Festival circuit. Nevertheless, I am committed to assisting the Backers in obtaining a cost free version, perhaps downloadable...and will keep everyone updated as negotiations ensue. Thanks for your support.

      Creator Midian on September 24, 2012

      Is Black Magick: The Art Of Chet Zar, a book that is not out yet? I was bummed I didnt make it in time to get the Mummy backer, no problem either way cause I picked the Cyclops backer. I am interested in that book to buy sometime in the near future. Do you know anything about that book or where I can get a copy of it? Its not on his website. I have a few items by Chet, but have never seen or heard of this book before. I would love to have a copy of this documentary, when it is all finalized. I am an artist myself & enjoy hearing from other artists that i find inspiring, such as Chet. If there is anyway of getting a copy of this documentary when your done with whatever you have to do to get it noticed, I would be more than delighted to have a copy of it. Good luck on the Kickstarter, I'm sure it will be funded within a few days.

      Cheers,

      Midian

      Creator Zyote on September 20, 2012

      Thanks for the reply, and the update too! A DVD at least to me would be more hassle than it's worth, but a download would be super awesome. Just seemed funny that this campaign was about a film, but no mention of how / if we'd ever get to see it! :-) Thanks for clearing this up.

    36. Stan_drawing_closeup.small

      Creator Mike Correll on September 20, 2012

      Hey Zyote - great question; I will be adding this information to the project today. The intent has been to create the Documentary and then take it through the film festival circuit. I did not budget for distribution, although depending upon how much money is generated that certainly may be in the works.

    37. Stan_drawing_closeup.small

      Creator Mike Correll on September 19, 2012
