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.
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.

Crazy talk, but if we get to £1150 I'll be able to add postcards of all 10 prints.
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.....
Software used: Daz3d, Mojoworld, Photoshop
For a lot of these scenes I've used a Mojoworld planet called ShangriLa created by the fantastic Eric DeGiuli (aka Infidel)

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
