INTO A RiFT Pitch/Preview book: is currently at 17 pages.

  From here on it's all about getting more pages into this book for you. With my "SEE More/SAY More" program: You can help if just a few of you spread the word (please do not spam) and make your current reward more substantial. An additional page of art will be added to the pitch/preview book and 11x13 Hardcover for every additional $300 beyond $6700 (up to 88 extra pages).  

Draw & Talk: I'll discuss the project as I illustrate an image for INTO A RiFT. Every Thursday, May 31st, and June 7th 2012, 3pm-3:30pm PST.

  • New Talk & Draw: 5/24/12 HERE

Interior Panel

pledges $30 or more may add a Signed 24 x36 POSTER for $8 (see Instructions in UPDATE #9). 

  INTO A RiFT will begin with a pitch-book/preview comic book. The pitch/preview book will contain six or more pages which will be in the first issue, character designs, logo designs, making-of-material, and a list of contributors. This book will be the first step towards a mini-series then onto a monthly comic book. 

  The funds will go towards the cost producing, printing & shipping the material for the rewards.  It will afford me the time to design, illustrate, letter and compile the books into a coherent product.

  INTO A RiFT is inspired by Ron Paul and the r3volution. The story follows our hero after his abrupt awaking from a sedentary town, to one of soft-tyranny and Hedonism of the soul. As he fights to leave this place, the more likely it is, he'll never escape.
