My name is Michelle and my artist name is Wolfskulljack. I've been making and uploading my art online for over 10 years now and I want to use Kickstarter as a preorder system for my second self published art book, Void. 

The book is almost good to go, I just need your help with printing costs!

Void is an incredibly personal project which is based around my own dealings with mental health. It has a 15 page narrative which explores my own fall into the pits of depression. The other 30 or so pages are brimming with traditional illustrations.

I wanted to do a project on depression because I feel that it was something that I needed back when I was at my very worst. I strongly believe that the medication and help available for people suffering with mental health issues is not where it should be. 

 This is not a self help book by any means, but I think it's a book that many of us can relate to. 

 

  • 50 pages
  • Soft back
  • Full colour
  • Size A4 (210 × 297 millimetres) 
  • Professionally printed by a highly recommended printing company
  • Shipped worldwide from the UK. A rough estimated date for dispatch is around July-August 2017. 

 

Void and Other Illustrations will hold around 50 traditionally made pieces of artwork.

Risks and challenges

As this is my second Kickstarter project (which was successfully funded in 2015) I feel that I have learned so much. Any problem we have can be dealt with efficiently thanks to working 6 years in customer service and my 10 years of experience in the arts.

Shipping time is estimated in July but for items with custom art this may take longer. I'll keep full communication throughout.
