About

One day, comic-industry veteran Matt Haley was chatting with his writer friend Angel McCoy about how everyone has an alter ego. We all have that imaginary personality inside, the one we would be if we had a fairy godmother or a magic wand. It occurred to us that it would be amazingly fun to see who/what people's alter egos were, their true selves unfettered by mundane worries, social norms, and gravity.

So, we decided to collect some alter egos, but we need your help!

Pledge to not only fund the book but to get your inner badass into it!

You be you!

Once you've pledged one of the levels with a drawing, we'll send you a survey of thoughtful, inspirational questions about your alter ego. You'll choose your genre, be it Fantasy, Superhero, Horror, SciFi, Steampunk, Post-Apoc, or whatever you feel suits your inner self.

You fill out these questions and send them back, then Matt will apply his own imagination to your description to bring out the truly magical version of your true self. 

In this way, you and Matt will collaborate to produce a unique piece of art that will belong to you, will be included in the book "Drawn into It," and will impress your friends for years with a true understanding of the depth of your being. 

We can't wait to get started! Can you?

Matt will pencil and ink your unique drawing on a 2-ply Bristol board sheet of the dimensions you chose. You will receive this original art when you choose one of the Original rewards. You will receive a high-quality scan of it in digital format when you choose one of the Digital rewards.

If you wish to have your piece colored, then Matt does that digitally in order to retain the highest quality. When you choose a COLOR Digital reward, you will receive a digital file of the drawing. When you choose a COLOR Original reward, you will receive the digital file, the original B&W inks on Bristol board, and a quality color print of your drawing on water-color paper (signed and numbered #1).

These will not be "to order" portraits, but will be Matt's interpretation of your survey answers. It's a collaboration between your imagination and his.

No nudity. No sex. No gorey violence. No neo-Nazis. No racism. Matt and Angel have the right to reject any concept that offends them.

We cannot put copyrighted characters in the book.

We retain the right to use these drawings for marketing the book worldwide in any medium and to print in the book "Drawn Into It". You may use them for your own purposes, as you wish, with no limitations. It would be nice if you gave Matt credit if you post them publicly. 

The characters themselves will belong to Matt Haley, though the drawing belongs to you.

We have set December 2018 as our deliver deadline for the book because with all the art that will need to be created, we want to give Matt plenty of time. However, we will be sending out each drawing when it is completed. 

If you would like to gift a portrait to someone else, you may do so. When you fill out the survey, just mark it as a gift. Then, you may fill out the survey, or your giftee can. As you wish. We'll be in touch to discuss further logistics if you mark your purchase as a gift.

 If you'd like to have more than one person or pets in a portrait, we can accommodate that. You will pay an extra fee by purchasing an add-on for each extra person or pet. We'll then be in touch to find out if you want those individuals to complete their own surveys or if you will complete them yourself. The add-on cost for each extra subject is $75.

 

Most recently providing art for the "Justice League" film for Warner Bros. and French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, Matt Haley has been illustrating for Marvel and DC Comics for years on characters ranging from "The Defenders" to "Superman" and has worked with "Spider-Man" creator Stan Lee for over a decade on films and TV projects like "Comic-Con: Episode IV" and "Who Wants to Be A Superhero?" as well as for TV series like FOX's "Gotham".

She’s currently the mastermind behind the indie game project at Games Omniverse. She lives in a cozy Seattle commune of cats. More at AngelMcCoy.com.

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk to this project is, heaven forbid, Matt gets hit by a bus. In that case, we will do everything we can to find an acceptable replacement artist.
