 =====

When Yuko began dealing with wrist issues in 2012 she started drawing with her non-dominant hand as a means of catharsis. OFFHAND is an art book of work that Yuko did with her non-dominant hand! It collects work from 2012-2017. OFFHAND is available in regular and limited editions. 

OFFHAND is an art book that chronicles Yuko's journey learning how to draw with her non-dominant hand while working on her Ignatz award winning comic collection, Johnny Wander: Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us.

It's hard, man
It's hard, man

 OFFHAND features brand new comics at the beginning of each section, to thread together a loose narrative about Yuko's wrist issues.

The art is arranged chronologically and split up into sections by year, from 2012 to 2017.

 OFFHAND will be presented in the same format as Yuko's previous art book, CUTTINGS, and will sit nicely on the shelf beside it. Here's some more art from the interior:

 

 

And here's one of the brand new comics:

It will be available in both regular and limited editions. The limited edition will feature a lenticular animated MRI scene (!!) on the cover.

There are other rewards as well, like charms and left-handed originals. Read below for more!

 

 

Our ability to make comics and post them to Johnny Wander has always been because of the incredible direct support of our fans. We are running this campaign to fund printing books that we can sell directly to our wonderful readers. This is the fifth project we'll be kickstarting, so it's a system we're familiar with. 

Risks and challenges

This is our fifth campaign to date. We work with George Rohac to help keep track of costs and manage fulfillment, and we've got a fulfillment center ready to go. Books are ready to go to the printer as soon as the campaign has wrapped.
