About

So..What is Sillycan Vale ?

Sillycan Vale is a town where each animal villager is the personification of a tech company from the real world. The goal of this project is to develop the whole concept into a comic series.

The characters & storylines are inspired by what's happening between the real tech communities especially in Silicon Valley, California. 

There will be roughly 3 phases during the development so you can expect 3 different volumes of the art books with 1 extra complete works edition that includes the content of all 3 volumes.

What're included in Volume I: 

  • 1st set of main characters design 
  • Visual style development
  • Illustrations & comic development

What're included in Volume II: 

  • 2nd set of main characters design 
  • Environment development
  • Illustrations & comic

What're included in Volume III: 

  • Story and environment development
  • Illustrations & comic

What're included in the Complete Works edition of Sillycan Vale

  • Special edition of the combined contents from Volume I, II & III with the latest art works.

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter project after backing several successful projects from other great artists over the years. So far the risks I can think of is the potential delay of the printing & shipping at the magnitude of 1-2 weeks, but I'll keep track of each printing, shipment and update with you guys promptly. Also, the whole project lasts pretty long, therefore I'll be really grateful for your patience & support!
