    A signed, original hand-drawn page of your choosing from either Floating Head Bounty Killers or the Astronomer. The page images are 9.75"x15" on 14"x17" bristol board and selection will be first come, first served. I do pretty much everything by hand, so the original pages are almost identical to the printed pages and are always richer and more nuanced. (Canada $160, International $175)

    NEW!! Floating Head Bounty Killer print! This is a hand-made, hand-pulled copperplate etching with serigraph, printed on Kozo, mounted on 11" x 14" Arches paper. Printed by the incomparable master printers of Tom Huck's famous Evil Prints during my recent artist-in-residency there, it features a cross-sectional diagram of the Bounty Killer, illuminating the inner workings of his queer physiology.
    Printed in an edition of 50, but only a small amount are available for sale. Don't sleep on this, as soon as the kickstarter campaign ends, this print will never again be offered at this price. Please see Update #1 for images of the print.

    NEW!! Behold The Mighty Yeti Overlords! print! This is a hand-made, hand-pulled copperplate etching printed on Kozo and mounted on 30" x 22" Magnani Pescia paper. Printed by the incomparable master printers of Tom Huck's famous Evil Prints during my recent artist-in-residency there, it features a six-fingered, four-armed Yeti High Priest preaching the gospel of his ancient and terrible gods.
    Printed in an edition of 15, I still have 10 available for sale. Just like the F.H.B.K. print, as soon as the kickstarter ends, the price for this print will jump up, and will never again be offered at this price. On a personal note, this is my favorite print I've made in the last few years, and I'm sure you'll be as happy with it as I am. Please see Update #1 for images of the print.

    Actualize your cosmic immortality by having your likeness drawn into The Astronomer comic! Send me several pictures and have your grim visage appear as a character in the story! Don't be shocked when it's weird and unflattering! Maybe you'll be a babbling doomsayer The Astronomer encounters on his travels through the blasted wasteland! Perhaps you'll become the victim of rampaging savages collecting sacrifices for their grizzly blood rituals! You may even become a recurring character or an ancient and terrible god! Who knows? I certainly don't, at least not until I get a good look at your mug. You also naturally get everything else: a hand drawn page of your choosing (most likely the one in which you appear, duh), F.H.B.K. and The Astronomer comics with personalized drawings, a t-shirt, a postcard with personalized drawing AND cosmic immortality via some top-shelf acknowledgement on the "Special Thanks" page of The Astronomer comic.
