About

I want to start by saying I am very excited about this project and I appreciate you coming by to check it out! 

I have spent my entire life working as both a cartoonist and a writer, yet rarely have had the opportunity to combine these things into one massive collaboration.  I've written and self published the all words/no pictures novel MEMOIRS OF AN ANTIHERO and also the Kickstarter funded children's book ALDO TANNERS! WHERE ARE YOUR MANNERS?! (arted and writed by me)

My next endeavor cleverly and sadistically combines a few of my all time passions; writing (specifically alliteration), cartooning and horror movies! The new children's style book NURSERY CRIMES : THE ABCs OF HORROR is a collected work inspired by some of pop culture's most influential horror icons.  

Each letter will be represented by two different characters with both a unique and fun cartoon rendering done by me as well as an alliterative caption to fully utilize the chosen letter.

 

I have spent the past year working on this project, with almost 40 characters already completed. With this book I plan on filling the entire second alphabet, as well as tinkering with the already existing characters. I want this book to bursting forth with the best of the best!  These are the characters that have inspired me throughout my life and I want to do each and every one of them justice! With your help I can finally make it happen!

 

 

 

I really want to get people involved with this new project. I will be updating regularly and keeping everyone in the loop with my progress and even some of the creative process.  Along with the book, you also have an opportunity to snatch up some amazing rewards!

There will be prints, flashcards, stickers, t-shirts and this will also be my first foray into enamel pins!

 On top of all this, you will even have a chance to immortalize yourself in my fun and haunting NURSERY CRIMES style, along with your very own alliterative caption that I will write just for you!!

My son, Keaton

 With this campaign I will be personally thanking EVERY backer in my book, but certain levels will enable you to have your image printed on the thank you pages as well! Two lucky backers will even be able to pick a pop culture horror icon to be represented in the book!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I look forward to working with all of you!

 

Risks and challenges

This project is 75% finished, and with your help I can make this my primary focus. I will be working diligently to have the entire book finished and ready to print by the end of the campaign!
