Beastly Beverages presents 'Tea~se': a fandom art book, where our favourite characters offer a cheeky insight into how they enjoy a good cup of something steamy~
This tea-tilating title will showcase the work of thirteen fantastic artists from fandom and fantasy, working with Beastly Beverages to put together a stunning sixty-five page, full colour pin-up book for your tea-time delectation. Fun, fancy, and a little bit saucy, Tea~se is a tongue-in-cheek take on 'naughty' advertising, with rose petals and strategically-placed teapots upon some of fandom's favourite characters.
Tea~se will feature characters inspired by film, games and comics - a full list is hosted on Beastly Patreon here.
UPDATE: WE ARE NEARLY THERE! As thank you for the wonderful backers so far - and a tease for everyone else - previews of even more of the art have been added:
And even more - in the book!
Beastly Beverages is an independent tea company in London, and my talented House Artists are joined by several amazing Guest Artists for this project, bringing their skill and humour into every pinup. The artists involved are:

All of the money raised will be going towards paying the artists for their hard work, to printing the books, Kickstarter fees and putting together the best possible perks for Backers.
A full list of character inspirations are hosted on the Beastly Patreon page here. All available as A5 - A4 - A3 prints as backer rewards in different tiers (please specify!).
£6000 - Four more characters will be added to the art book
£8000 - I will be able to print a hardback version of the book and this will be added as a perk
£9000 - Another four characters will be added to the art book
Risks and challenges
The main risk is getting all the art done in time, but all my artists have at least got the sketches already completed. Throughout the duration of the Kickstarter, they will be working on inking and colouring the remaining pieces.
I have fully researched book publishers and I have chosen the one with the best reputation for getting things finished on time. But there will still be the risk of delays. I have tried to counter these delays by having the posting month be October of this year to give myself and the printers plenty of time to get things done and shipped.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
