Do you have a favorite character? This project needs you. A drawing that grows as backers share their beloved comic or cartoon icons.

 *As of Tuesday Morning 1-29-13 ^

Over the past five years, I created three large scale works of art that attempt to catalogue the entire 'Cartoon Universe.' I loved creating this work and continue to be blown away by people's responses.

This year I am creating a series built around crowdsourcing content though coherent themes. Here are some examples: a picture of only cereal mascots; father figures; video game ghosts; famous apes; characters voiced by Bill West, or Disney Villains.

I'm starting the series with an experiment. 'Just the Favorites' will include no more than 120 characters. I have started with six of my own favorites: Link, Homer, Stimpy, Roadrunner, Spidey and Dumbo. I'd like to populate the rest of the picture with some of yours.

For $15.00, the character of your choice will be drawn into the picture. Because this project is about the backers as much as it is about the characters, please feel free to tell me your story about the character or a certain appearance of theirs that meant something to you.

In addition, you'll get one of 250 Limited Prints of the piece. Characters will be added in the order backers join, with a list at the bottom of this page. After pledging, message me with your character request.

Posted below is a video by Yuyu Chen for the New York Times East Village Local Blog. It serves as an excellent primer if you are unfamiliar with my work. 

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.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

In the past my projects have taken longer than expected to complete due increasing scope and too much optimism about my own limitations. I have designed this project with ease and speed of creation and central to the process. I believe that I am experienced in creating this kind of work to the extent that I should have no problem creating the work on time and on budget.
