Stretch Goals One, Two, Three and Four Achieved! - Every backer $1+ will be drawn into a thank you image and can download my comic book here. All backers $15+ get a Color-Me-Comicosm and Spider-Mania. The basic print has changed from 18x24" to 24x36".
Comicosm 2 is the fourth installment in my on ongoing series attempting to encapsulate the Entire Cartoon Universe. This drawing includes over 2,000 characters from a list that I have collected and culled over the past five years. The work takes inspiration from the complex drawings of Mad Magazine and Where's Waldo as well as the detailed meditational art of Tibet.
I have brought the project to Kickstarter to fund the printing of 18" by 24" prints of the completed color image. For your reward, I will be sending out the prints with a characters guide and a suggested set of rules for playing with the piece. Of course you can always simply hang it on the wall... but I also want to give a gamified option for interacting with this piece.
Just to give you a sense, you can find three Triforce pieces, five Golden Tickets, eight red Mario coins, seven Palantirs, seven Chaos Emeralds, 101 (Yes, I counted) Dalmations and, of course, one Waldo (plus like 50 Waldo and Cat in the Hat hats :))
I'll be developing a rules, patterns and a point system over the next month so if anyone has ideas, I'd love to hear them. I am also absolutely open to character suggestions and would love it if you wrote your most desired characters in the comments section.
Thank you for your interest and continued support. I am still amazed at the kindness and enthusiasm that this mode of working allows. It's a true gift that the audience can be as big an inspiration as the subject.
Posted below is a video by Yuyu Chen for the New York Times East Village Blog. It serves as an excellent primer if you are unfamiliar with my work.
Risks and challenges
I am just about to fulfill the rewards on my most recent project. I have handled multiple projects at different phases of completion in the past and am confident I can handle everything I have laid out for myself.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
