HOW TO PLEDGE FOR ORIGINAL ART OR SIGNED PRINTS

Add $30 to your pledge for each signed print of Jasper. Any quantity or combination is fine, just simply add $30 for each additional print. When you fill out the Backer Survey after the campaign ends, you will be able to select which particular titles you would like as prints. There's no need to let us know the specifics until then.

For each original ink on paper illustration of Jasper, please pledge the $1000 "Original Drawing of Me (from the book)" reward tier and message us through Kickstarter with the number and/or title of your selection. Originals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis only.

*REGARDING PLEDGE LEVELS THAT INCLUDE A NAME IN THE ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: In order for Baby Tattoo to fulfill this component of the reward, each backer must complete an online questionnaire indicating the name they would like printed. The questionnaire will be sent electronically after the conclusion of the campaign. Backers who do not complete the questionnaire by the indicated cutoff date will not receive an acknowledgement. 

Risks and challenges

I don't know much about making books (although I can make just about anything I set my mind to), but Baby Tattoo has been publishing books for over 15 years. The folks at Baby Tattoo tell me they do not foresee any significant challenges to delivering my book, my lapel pin, or the original drawings of me (the hand-drawn illustrations by Brian Kesinger, and the Shot 10 animation drawings by Tina Nawrocki have already been completed).

    Extra-Spiffy Extra-Rare Spiffy Book

    This is the exact same book as the Spiffy Book except is it extra-spiffy on the outside due to the ingenious use of super-nice materials and such. It's going to be super rare too (for people who collect special things). I think we're going to make about 1,000,000,000,050 (or something) of the Spiffy Book, but we're only going to make 100-ish of the Extra-Spiffy Extra-Rare Spiffy book. Not only will this be hand signed by Brian Kesinger and me (like the Spiffy Book), but Brian will also put a small, simple, original, hand-sketched line drawing of me inside! Original art right inside your book! Plus you'll get the Shiny Object because you deserve it.

    Original Animation Drawing + Book

    It's kind of a secret, but it's kind of not... Brian Kesinger is planning to make a little motion picture movie about me. It's a special kind of movie where every moment is an actual drawing! Apparently it takes lots and lots of drawings to make even a few seconds of movie! So my friend Brian asked his friend Tina Nawrocki (who has drawn other motion picture movies like something about a guy named "Cuphead"... I guess she's good at drawing guys with "head" in their name) to help draw my movie about me. The first part of the movie she drew (as kind of an experiment) was called "Shot 10". Well, there were just over 30 individual drawings in "Shot 10", and we're offering 30 of them here as a very special reward (that comes with the 'Spiffy Book" and the "Shiny Object"). These are the first-ever movie drawings of me, from the very beginning steps of making the movie move. Available only here, only now, "Shot 10" won't be offered again. This is a piece (of paper) of motion picture history.

    Original Drawing of Me (from the book)

    My friend Brian Kesinger's portrait drawings of me and my inventions are the original art created as illustrations for the book. They are one-of-a-kind, hand-sketched drawings on toned paper. Because they are the actual art used for the book, they are sure to be collector's items. If you are an art collector, this reward is perfect for you!

    INSTRUCTIONS: pledge for this reward tier, then look at the numbered grid of images on the campaign page and message us through Kickstarter with the number of the original illustration you are pledging for. There is only one of each illustration available, so they are being offered on a first-come/first-served basis. If possible, please list a 2nd and 3rd choice in your message in case your first choice has already been pledged. We will be monitoring messages on a regular basis, and all messages are time-stamped, so we will be able to let you know if yours is the successful pledge for the art you are requesting.
