Your pledge means everything to this project's success. The £9,000 will fund a small print run of 1000 super high quality art books alongside some great limited edition merchandise that will only be available through this project exclusively. 

The book will be self published and the goal is to begin publishing more books - there are plans for three more books currently, but I can't do this without your help. This is where it all begins. 

Your input into this project, and your pledges are so vital to the future success of the books I'd love to publish in the future. This book is the culmination of a year's hard work and creative thinking. 

Thank you so much for your time and with your pledges, I hope to be sending out many copies of the book very soon. 

About the project

52 Weeks of Freaks is the product of a year’s work and flow of inspiration which started it’s life as a silly conversation in a dusty loft apartment on the outskirts of Leeds, a bustling metropolitan city in the North of England. 

When I started this project, my only aim was to improve the way I conceive ideas as an image maker. As the weeks turned into months, and gradually a year - amongst an explosion of art and life, a set of characters emerged. They not only began to define my stylistic approach as an illustrator, but also became a visual diary with each character being an observation of the world around me. 

Each one of these characters holds a value to me and symbolises every week of the last year of my life. I have compiled these characters into this book in the hope that you will find inspiration in it, and help stoke your creative fires. The book contains 52 full colour illustrations, each with a description and some fact nuggets about their lives, hobbies, habits, likes dislikes, careers and pastimes. I've been told its a funny read!

About the book 

The book will be printed to the highest quality paper stocks and perfect bound as a hardback book, using premium matt & silk paper stocks with high attention to detail, love and care - made in the UK. 

Above: Fu - he's a Himalayan dog fart. Below : Lucky - he's a marshmallow kitty. These are 2 of the 52 characters in the book.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this project, I hope you have enjoyed seeing it and that with your help, I can make this dream of releasing my own little book critter into the world a reality!

Risks and challenges

The creative side of the project is already completed though so this takes out alot of risks in terms of timing.

Postage may take a little while, as will working through original ink illustrations and murals - please be patient (as im sure you will be if youre used to doing this) and give up to 30 days grace (it wont take this long but this is a worst case scenario) You will be updated through every step of the post funding process if i smash the whimpering beatrice out of kickstarter.

Attention to detail - The book has been painstakingly designed by me with a great level of attention to detail.
