"The Turning Shape" is an incredibly personal collection of work which was crafted largely over the past year, and the elements within the book can be seen as an exploration into my own psyche.
Explore the Forest of the Self and encounter The Rabbit, The Witch, The Birds and the Wolf, along with many other beasts.
My name is Michelle and my online artist name is WolfSkullJack. I am a British artist living in the UK and I have been working in the art industry for over decade. It gives me tremendous joy to release my third self published art book, "The Turning Shape".
"The Turning Shape" is brimming with traditional pieces of beasts, monsters, and creatures, all of which dwell within my subconscious. My art is many things - Mostly therapy, but also a journey into what it means to be human.
More stretch goals to be announced!!
I'm using Kickstater as a preordering platform. The book is well underway already and i'm expecting to go to print as soon as the campaign has ended. This way I know how many to order! Kickstater has been used previously for my last two art books which smashed their goals in a matter of hours. Both of these books have now sold out!
The great thing about using Kickstater is that I can get the funds upfront to pay for the printing costs, merchandise, and shipping materials.
When will the books be shipped?
The plan is to get the books printed by the end of July and make a start on shipping in August. However, please allow up until November especially if your book requires a drawing or commission. I'll keep everyone fully up to date in the journal posts on Kickstarter!
When will payment be taken?
Please remember that payment will be taken at the END of the campaign, so please keep this in mind! Payments that fail at the end of the campaign will loose out on rewards. No reservations.
How will you get my address?
When everything is ready to ship i'll be sending out a survey to collect any information I need to complete your order. Keep an eye out on the journal posts to let you know when the surveys are sent! You will also be sent an email.
Can I pay extra for tracked and signed shipping?
Yes! Tracked shipping tends to be double the amount of standard shipping and you can pay the extra amount by Paypal at the end of the campaign. Just drop me a message! I don't make a profit on shipping.
In regards to the commission slot, what is allowed and what isn't?
My strengths are in monsters, werewolves, animals, pets , skeletons or skulls. Please don't buy the slot if you want a commission of machinery, a human, a copyrighted character, hateful propaganda, sexual or pornographic images (although tasteful nudity is fine). You would be welcomed to get the piece tattooed if you wanted to! If you're not sure please drop me a message!
Is there any nudity or bad language?
There is no bad language. There is however some booty and tasteful nudity! Any nude character is not at all drawn in a sexual manner but more to reflect a natural state.
Any other questions please just drop me a line!

Risks and challenges
This being my third Kickstarter project, I am confident I can handle any issues that may come our way! The book is about 80% ready to go, I just need the funds upfront to cover the printing costs.
I'll keep full communication throughout
