Since I had so much fun doing the “Invasion of the Clown Clones” art book with Charlie and all of you, I am back with Kickstarter to offer you 'Chiodosaurs', the second book in this series by Charlie Chiodo, focused on his lifelong addiction to drawing dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes!  As you can see in the project video I have already kicked off this campaign by commissioning Charlie to Klown me up a Dinosaur, and it looks great!  Check it out!

The First Commissioned Dino!

Our goal for this campaign is similar to last time: Publish an approximately 50 page, softcover 8.5 X 11 book, but this time bind it horizontally since Charlie's dinosaur art is better suited to landscapes than portraiture.  Take Lost Patrol for example:

Lost Patrol

We are introducing this campaign with 12 reward levels, and may even add more during the campaign, so hopefully there is something here for everyone.  NOTE: A limited number of pledge levels offer premium quality commissioned artwork that Charlie will create just for you and that we will publish in this first ever collection of Chiodosaurs!   

It's A Dinosaur World
It's A Dinosaur World

We also plan to include much more color throughout the book, including many drawings never before seen from Charlie's abundant archives! (ok, many of us have seen 'Dino Alley' below, but there are drawers full of dinosaur art that you haven't seen yet!)

We will also offer to record and edit more crazy videos of Charlie at work on the commissioned art pieces, and then include links in the book so that both artists and fans can watch Charlie bring those dinosaur creations to life!

If you are a dinosaur aficionado or enjoyed participating in the 'Invasion of the Clown Clones' project please join me in the front row of this new adventure, and witness what Charlie pencils and paints from his prehistoric past and present palette!

THANKS for your support, and please share this with anyone you think may want to join us! 

My very best,

Nelson

Risks and challenges

This is a follow on to a successfully funded and completed Kickstarter campaign and the second in a series of campaigns to publish Charlies artwork so few challenges are expected . Risks and challenges only exist with respect to delivery dates. There may be delays in getting the sketchbook delivered on time due to Charlies availability but we have set an April 2018 time frame to hopefully eliminate that risk.

Early delivery is expected, however any unexpected or additional delays will be announced in updates during and after the campaign, once it has been successfully funded!
