RazorCandi Gothic Punk Deathrock Pinup Coffee Table Art Book

$12,012

119

Hello, I'm Kym, better known around the internet as RazorCandi, and I'm dying to make a coffee table art book, that could be possible with your help!

I'm an alt model and best known for my deathrock and goth styles. Different dress styles aside, I really feel that what separates me from the term model is that I come up with all of my own looks, I do my own makeup, I do my own hair, I even come up with a lot of my own concept designs.

Being alternative means that I've really never had any interest in pursuing mainstream beauty standards when it comes to my work. I mainly enjoy the artistic expression most and have embraced that beauty isn't everything and that the creation of art is so much more satisfying.

This is why a longtime dream of mine has been to release a beautifully produced coffee table book showcasing my work. I finally have the opportunity thanks to Blue Blood, who will be publishing the book.

To get an idea, it will be something similar to the California Deathrock book published by Blue Blood. It will be the same hard cover, 172 pages, full color, the same high quality as found in this book. My plan is for the book to have a decade's worth of my most memorable images, translating my visions into styles with so much to share. The images will focus more on my stylish nudes and my goth, deathrock, and punk sensual looks. I'm very excited for this project and I'm forever grateful that I've been able to make art for so many years and share my art with all of my online friends.

I have Blue Blood's Forrest Black designing the book. In addition to his decades of experience with Blue Blood, his design skills have been tapped by such bands as the Dandy Warhols, Radiohead, and Everclear. The prestigious graphic design magazine PRINT honored him for his trendsetting sexy gothic work and I know he is going to make this book look gorgeous.

I'll have other things to offer, besides just the book, like Kickstarter-exclusive T-Shirts and personalized fan signs. For a fan sign, I will make you a custom photograph, personalized for you or your business. The photo will be high resolution, suitable for printing, and, if you want, I will post it to my social media too!

It would be a mega huge help if you could share my video above and spread the word about my Kickstarter for this art book project.Thanks so much, everyone!

Stretch Goal: If the Kickstarter exceeds $10k, I will also create a pin-up calendar and everyone who pledged at the $75 level or higher will receive it as a free bonus item!

Edit: We are sooooooo close to hitting the stretch goal! If we hit it, everyone whose pledge is $75+ (before shipping) will get a free $30 pinup calendar! If you would like to increase your pledge, the tier with my book and the T-shirt is pretty sweet. Feel welcome to message for help, if you'd like to get something additional on your pledge. Thanks so much for all the support!

 

 

 

 

 

A few of you have asked about my painting, so I am adding a few one-of-a-kind paintings as reward options on this Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

I've already created all of the images for the book and design is almost complete, so the main challenges ahead are just printing and distribution. This is why I am excited to have Blue Blood as my publisher for this project. The Blue Blood team has 25+ years of experience in print and digital production and distribution, with literally hundreds of successful projects produced. I am very confident that, together, we will be able to overcome any challenges which might arise.
