The Mystery Blob wants to make a one-time printing of 150 pages, b&w, never-before-seen drawings in a professionally bound book!

Hello there! Welcome to the Mystery Blob Kickstarter page!! The Mystery Blob started appearing all over our little island of Key West to the bewilderment and amusement of locals and tourists alike who started to see the little Blob appearing all over the walls, lamp posts, bars, telephones, back alleyways, and covering much of the tiny 2x4 mile island! Everyone loves the antics of the Blob, who usually inherits a trait or quality of whatever landmark or business structure the Blob appears next to. He is sure to bring a smile!

What simply started out as a little street art project quickly turned into something so much more! The diverse and vibrant community of Key West welcomed the colorful and eccentric Mystery Blob with open arms! People independently started documenting and tracking the Blob on the Internet (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mystery-Blob-Key-West/114174058690309), school children started drawing the Blob and picking their favorite, and then the Blob had its own art show!

Even more surprisingly local businesses wanted to associate and befriend the Blob! This brings so much joy to the Blob and he is happy to share the smiles!

The Blob needs YOUR help in raising the funds to produce a book of limited never-before-seen drawings that show off the Blob's unique and playful personality. The book will be a 150 page professionally bound book that the Blob hopes to share with whomever wants to bring a piece of the Blob home. He knows it's difficult for everyone to get down to our tiny little island of Key West and experience the Blob firsthand!

The Blob needs to raise $3,200  for the production of this endeavor! Along with receiving a finished copy of the one-time printed book the Blob plans to hook you up with a chance to own some other Blob swag in funding and supporting this project on Kickstarter! We hope you are as excited as the Blob is to be sharing this project with you! Thank you so much for checking out this Kickstarter and please donate and help get this book printed and made!

Here are some sample drawings that will appear in the book!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The book is entirely produced and edited/formatted in Photoshop and ready to be printed (save any additional pages needed to be produced from the Rewards). As well as, the majority of the rewards are already produced and should not be a problem to deliver by the estimated delivery date. The only foreseeable problem could be delay in shipping from the book publishing company, but that is unlikely and we have given ourselves what we believe is an adequate window to have any delayed covered.
