Benign Kingdom presents their first collection of themed titles - Capture Creatures, the Exquisite Beast, and Midnite Surprise.

About this project

Benign Kingdom is looking to bring its first themed collection out and we need your help. 

Previously we have produced seasonal collections of art books featuring sketches and unpublished works from a variety of creators. With this collection we aim to highlight specific projects from a few creators in prestige formats for you to enjoy. 

 Capture Creatures - by Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson

Inspired by Ken Sugimori's feat of designing the original 151 Pokemon in a single year Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson have created 151 unique creatures, relations, and descriptors. 6"x8" with 312 Pages total.

 the Exquisite Beast - by Evan Dahm and Yuko Ota

A series of illustrations of a monster evolving traded between Yuko and Evan. All illustrations were done with ink and inkwash. 7"x7" with 208 Pages Total.

The book will be printed in black and white with a pantone accent on heavy cream colored paper and measure 7x7.

The limited edition will feature a three piece cover with a ribbon bookmark and be signed by both creators.

Midnite Surprise V2 - by KC Green

A collection of material from KC Green's art blog - midnitesurprise.tumblr.com this collection features a new collection of work featuring original illustrations, comics, and more. 7"x10" and 64 Pages Total.

Printed in full color and measuring 7x10 the standard edition will be a softcover format while the limited edition will be hardcover and come signed by KC Green.

Each title in the collection will come in two types - regular and limited. 

That's right, we're making prints exclusively for backers of this kickstarter. We won't be making them available for sale. They're going to be just for those of you supporting us make this happen. Each book will come with a  related print!

Risks and challenges

The content of every book is done. We have chosen a printer we will work with if we succeed and we have slotted in additional time for shipping due to the convention season and additional proofing process we wish to include.
