About

The Illustrated Field Guide to Wild Monster Boys is a watercolor pin-up artbook full of sexy, sassy, cute, delightful monster boys poised in various states of deshabille (that's the sultry way of saying undress), accompanied by field notes on each boy!

The Field Guide is a collaboration with artist Cap O'Rushes, hatched all the way back in in 2017, and we're elated to bring the complete book to you now! Wild Monster Boys is a complete 32-page artbook featuring 12 full-color watercolor illustrations of unique monster boys, with additional illustrations, beautiful hand-drawn borders, and bonus sketches in the back! 

The book itself is an objet d'art, with gold foil stamping on the front and back covers, designed by award-winning graphic designer Shi Briggs! All that's left to do after funding is send the files to the printer - and then hot off the press and into your hands!

I (Rhiannon R-S, writing under my extremely secret sexy comic pseudonym Charibdys) am a queer professional science-fiction, fantasy and horror author published in magazines including Lightspeed, ZEAL, and Diabolical Plots, and Cap O'Rushes (Twitter) is a fantastic illustrator and comicker whose oeuvre includes 1001 Knights, adult visual novel Out of Sync, and some very steamy stories on acclaimed 18+ comics site SlipShine.   

A spread from the book itself: pin-up and notes!

The book! Either in PDF or our short-run, deluxe gold foil stamped softcover. This book will be B5 sized, full-color, 32 pages, with original writing in the style of an in-world fantasy field guide accompanying each pin-up!

Glossy stickers by guest artists Ayme Sotuyo ([un]Divine) and Jemma Salume!

Limited watercolor commissions by Cap O'Rushes! Capo has graciously opened commission slots for five ORIGINAL 9 x 12"watercolor full-body paintings of anything you want-- as long as it's a monster boy! Your prompt, your unique monster boy!

At $3,500, for all backers, we unlock a 5th-edition compatible, printable PDF RPG supplement for adding monster boys to any of your 20-sided campaigns! This supplement will be written by Ainsley Yeager, an experienced roleplayer and DM!

At $4,000 we unlock 2 additional sexy stickers by guest artists Jax (GhostlyGoods)  and Katie Berntson! 4 in total!

At $4,500 we unlock 2 additional sly stickers by guest artists Saane and Shi Briggs! 6 in total!

At $5,000 we unlock 2 additional sassy stickers by guest artists Ainsley Yeager and Hannako Lambert! That's 8 total stickers for all sticker tier backers!

At $5,500 we unlock the super-extra book finish of my print-consultant dreams: a die-cut cameo cover like a gold-trim paper window into fantasy~

Risks and challenges

I've helped finish and deliver over a dozen Kickstarters, ranging from webcomics (O Human Star, The Meek, The Last Halloween, ROADQUEEN) to enamel pins (Beastly Beats) to anthologies, including the award-winning ELEMENTS anthology series. I've also Kickstarted and delivered a one-shot comic, The Mystery of La Luna, as a team alongside artist Ainsley Yeager. This book is already done and a fantastic printer is standing by; all we need is the funding!

That said, delays and the occasional error are a fact of life in publishing. If there is a surprise wrench in the works, you will be informed of any timeline changes.
