About

tentacle-made:  the illustrations of 'trie blasingame

what is tentacle-made:  the illustrations of 'trie blasingame?

tentacle-made:  the illustration of 'trie blasingame is a 30 page art book of my fantasy and fandom illustrations from my 2015 sketch-a-day and 2015 inktober series in all of their glory.

think of it like an artist's chapbook.

the book itself will be printed by LuLu and will be an 8.5" x 8.5" photo perfect bound paperback.

why is this a thing that i should help fund?

i am a full-time, professional mixed media, conceptual artist.  i did my post-baccalaureate work at columbia college chicago after persuing degrees in classics and history (ba) and literature (ma).  i'm a writer and a freelance illustrator/graphic designer, and my work has been in shows all over america--although, my favorite has been the abraham lincoln presidential museum.

but, really, the reason that you should fund this project is because you enjoy the work that's being produced.  it doesn't matter if i have degrees or shows or any of the other trappings of the fine art world.  you should support this project because my work speaks to you and you enjoy it.

tl;dr:

small book of original illustrations that you should fund because you like the work.

Risks and challenges

the risks and challenges of this project are that i've never ordered a book of my own work before, but ordering proofs before the full order goes to press should manage many of these issues.

shipping delays are a possible thing because i live in wisconsin and winter is soon to be upon us. yet, if there are delays, they should be minor.

i am currently waiting to hear back about a show in february, but that shouldn't affect this book project due to decisions about publishing and image choice have already been made.
