Introduction

I've been a fan of Lovecraft since I was about 13 years old. One of the things that first attracted me to his work was the art work on the books. I was instantly hooked. Over time I started producing my own images and I've been making images with that larger than life character Cthulhu. 

Why Kickstarter?

Two reasons really. I've backed a lot of Kickstarter projects in the past. I absolutely love the thrill of getting a parcel through my door at some point in the future from some project I've backed. If I can share that feeling of excitement, that would be brilliant. The second reason is to be able to get a load of prints to you at practically cost price without any compromise on quality. 

What Will I Be Getting?

If the project is successful, you will get 5 A4 prints of my most popular images. 

EDIT! I totally forgot to say if you back the PRINT option you will also get the PDFs as well....I'm such a dumbass!

I put it to a public vote, letting people choose from 10 different images. The prints will be on a lovely 300gms art silk board. I've had a few test prints and they look fabulous! 

Here are the five most popular images:

 

 

The final prints will have a small white margin around the edges, making them suitable for framing if you so desire. 

Stretch Goals Details

As you can see, we've unlocked all prints - yep, all ten! Woo!

 Funds Raised // Number of Prints/ Rewards

  • £500 // 5 Prints (Unlocked)
  • £575 // 6 Prints (Unlocked)
  • £650 // 7 Prints (Unlocked)
  • £725 // 8 Prints (Unlocked)
  • £800 // 9 Prints (Unlocked)

Crazy talk, but if we get to £1150 I'll be able to add postcards of all 10 prints. 

Postage

I've done some postage trials from England to the US. One set of prints was sent via a rigid card envelope, one using a small A4 box. Both arrived perfectly intact. For this project, I plan to use the rigid envelope. If you really have a strong preference for postage via the box let me know and I'm sure we can organise it for you.....

Risks and challenges

I genuinely believe there are very few risks. The images are ready to go. I know the printer and his turnarounds are normally very quick.

This is my second campaign so I understand the speed of which things run and have factored this into the delivery times.

The only variable I don't have total control over is postage. I have been on the receiving end of packages that have been bent in transit and I know how frustrating it is. To try and avoid this I have done trial runs with using different packaging and I genuinely believe this won't happen.
