About

Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Miguel Antelo,  and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our kickstarter campaign for “Hansel and Gretel Storybook”, a very special publishing project that we’ve been working on for the past 3 years. 

This storybook is based on the classic tale of Hansel and Gretel, but it has a fresh and very funny twist, and new unforgettable characters. I wrote this story 6 years ago and turned it into a musical that has been a great success in Spain, my home country. As author of the book and art director, when I came across the idea of turning the stage production to a storybook, I had clear in my mind that I wanted it to be unique and beautiful.

My goal was to make a book with full page illustrations that looked like key frames of classic 2D animation. So, how did I do it?

I contacted some of the most amazing artists all over the world, and asked them to join the project. Top Disney animator Sandro Cleuzo loved the idea and designed all the characters in the book, and also drew some of the key pages. After that, Javier Burgos (also known as “Javas”), Senior Artist at Rovio Entertainment, took over Sandro’s beautiful work and is currently drawing and painting the pages of the book. 

But there’s more! In addition to the Storybook itself, we´re also working on an ART BOOK that will show the whole process behind the creation, featuring the best artwork created by Sandro Cleuzo and Javier Burgos for the project. It will feature all the juicy stuff that animation fans love: inspirational sketches, color keys, model sheets, character designs, backgrounds… And it will also feature made-for-the-ocasion art from some of the most amazing ARTISTS in the animation industry: Borja Montoro, Carlos Luzzi, Jeff Merghart, Jose manuel Fernandez Oli, Aveline Stockart, Andrew Chesworth, David Ardinaryas, and many more!

You can find a complete list of the artists collaborating in the project at the bottom of this page. It is impressive!! All these talents are preparing incredible art that will make this book something special and unique. Here's a small sample of what you will find inside:

We’ve been working really hard to make all this happen, but there’s still a long way to go.  It would really be a dream come true to finally publish this book, but we need YOUR help to make this happen, so please…

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter, and we've been planning it for more than one year to make sure that everything will run smoothly and that all backers will be happy with the result.

Both books are near completion, which means that if we collect the funds, the rewards will be ready even sooner than the current estimate (July/August 2019). However it's possible that printing or shipping issues could arise and the book could be delayed. In such an unlikely case, backers will be notified and given updates on the reasons for the delay.

As head of this project, I understand the faith that backers are having in me to make these books a reality, so I'll be very transparent with everything that goes into the production by posting timely updates, and being quick to notify backers of any setbacks.
