New Flesk Kickstarter Campaign Launched with Frank Cho


Hi, everyone,

I hope you are all doing well!

I would like to share the news about our new Flesk Kickstarter campaign. I've teamed up with Frank Cho to bring you his Drawing Beautiful Women: The Frank Cho Method. Frank Cho, the acclaimed creator of Liberty Meadows, shares his secrets to drawing the lovely women he is renowned for. There are six editions of the book, designed to meet the budgetary criteria of the working student and then move on up to those who are looking for something extra-special.

If you would like to learn more, please visit our campaign here.

Thank you again for your support and I hope you are enjoying your books. I wish you and your families all the best for the holidays!

John Flesk

      Yeah, there's been a few projects that have employed that model. Seems sensible, under the circumstances.

      From the shipping cost side of things, check out what The Strange project (and RPG kickstarter) did. They explicitly deferred shipping costs until the product was ready to go. They also provided credit equal to the American shipping cost to international backers.

      While I therefore don't know how much it will cost to get shipped to me when the books are finally printed, it seemed like a pretty fair way of doing it that doesn't leave the vendor out of pocket.

      Just sayin'.

      Jussi, thanks for offering some alternate ideas. We're still going to be holding off for the reasons I shared in my comment below. Also, the book will be coming out next October. The shipping would be easier to determine if the book was only three months away. I appreciate your being helpful.

      So, offer it for international backers with an average $68 shipping, then? If we find it too steep, we don't back, but those who want to pay the money can still come along for the ride.
      Some may actually prefer that to waiting an extra three months to get the book. At which time, logically, the shipping still would be the same anyway.

      I understand, guys. I will definitely be putting the limited and signed editions up for international sales by September 2014. I'll have the sample copies and can determine the shipping at that time. The weights increase as we add stretch goals and I fully expect the Post Office here to raise the rates by next year. The Brom book ended up costing us on average $20 to ship out of pocket, even with you guys paying the $48 for shipping. The extra weight, Post Office raising their rates, and extra packing and larger boxes all contributed to that $20.
      Anyway, thanks so much. I know it's a bummer. And I really appreciate you wanted to support us.

      Pitty it only ships within the U.S would love to back it.

      Likewise, being outside the US, I have to say I am less appreciative of being notified of a project I am specifically excluded from. Are the various limited and signed editions going to be available from the Flesk website in 2014?

    8. Brom and Flesk Publications Creator on December 5, 2013

      Denny, I appreciate you wanting to pledge and support us. I'll be making the books available on the Flesk website for international orders next fall. I'll know the weights and dimensions to determine the shipping costs at that time. Also, the trade editions will be available through Previews and the book trade. There's an FAQ on the Cho Kickstarter page with more information.

      Would've been nice to be able to get in early on this project too, but unfortunately, being located outside the US means I can't join in... Maybe Canadian shipping?
