Watchful Eyes and Monster Taxidermy for the Adventurous Home

About Me

Watchful Eye

The Watchful Eye has trapped the powers of a Groblynn inside each amulet to keep close track of all of your belongings. I custom designed the image for the Watchful Eye in an exclusive Kickstarter green. Each glass eye is then hand made and set in a pocket watch case that I sculpt on top of. The max number of this pledge is 100. Once they are gone they will not be made again. 

Young Groblynn Taxidermy Head

Nothing will ward off evil like a Groblynn head on your wall. I traveled far and wide to bring these beasts back for your adventurous home. Groblynns are one of the many species that inhabit my fantasy world of Revilo.

I hand sculpted the initial Groblynn with MagicSculpt and painted this sample in acrylic. I will make a two-part silicone mold to hand cast a limited run of 100 of these creatures out of resin. Once this run is done, the mold will be destroyed and no more of this Groblynn will be made! I will then hand paint each of them in acrylic. The plaque is a custom design that is hand cut with routed edges. These will come numbered with a certificate of authenticity. 

I have chosen to run this as a 2 week campaign ending on February 3rd. Each piece is unique so colors will vary slightly. Size: 10" H x 7.25" W x 8" D

Magic Pencil 10 Pack

This pack of 10 pencils comes pre-sharpened and printed with "Magic Pencil +4 Monster Making" on them. Great for fueling the imagination of all who wield them!  

Add Ons

A few people have been asking about adding items to their pledge level. If you would like an extra Watchful Eye, Sticker, Button, or pencil just add the amount above to your total pledge. When I send out surveys at the end of the Kickstarter you will be able to have those as part of your order.

About Me

I try to draw, paint, sculpt, or design all the fantastical monsters who have found their way into my imagination. They take on many forms from fine art, to kids games, to clothing. At the heart of all my efforts my inspiration is drawn from the fantasy world of Revilo that I explore when I close my eyes. I hope you enjoy the life I have given these critters.

Stretch Goals

Everyone that has pledged for a Watchful Eye or higher reward will receive a Groblynn head sticker measuring 3.25" x 2.25" printed on durable weather-resistant vinyl.

The second stretch goal will is official Creature Curation Cult status! That’s right, everyone who has pledged the Watchful Eye or higher will get one of these shiny Creature Curation buttons. But what does this mean you ask? Present this button to me at any show or convention and I will give you something special in return!

Hooray! You have unlocked another stretch goal! This time around is the Magic Pencil +4 Monster Making! I love drawing and encourage others to do it as well. If we hit this stretch goal everyone who has pledged the Watchful Eye or higher will get two of these custom designed pencils!

More Buttons!!! If we hit the $5,000 stretch goal everyone that has pledged the Watchful Eye or higher will receive this button of the Groblynn's eye to adorn their jackets, backpacks, purses, and more! 

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge is that we probably haven’t met yet. If we had I’m sure you’d be pledging before even reading this part :) I have made a ton of Watchful Eyes and Monsters for the conventions and art shows I attend each year. The only production challenges I might face would be fulfillment timing. But I am pretty good at bending space and time to suit my needs. As soon as this looks like it will fund I will begin production to keep ahead of schedule.
