My fan art series will give you the most beloved and feared comic book characters using a digital/watercolor style.
I am producing fan art through this Kickstarter project and my artwork is not licensed or produced by or for D.C Comics. These prints will never be available through any online retailers and will only be available through this Kickstarter project.
I will be taking pictures of toys. The list of toys is below. I will take a picture of me with that toy and than I will create an abstract art print from that picture.
////Below you will see a picture of a before and after process for one of my prints////
You will get email updates of the before and after pictures...these will also be included in the books. I will also give a brief personal description of what these characters mean to me.

Stretch Goals Reached!!!
I will be taking part in Kicking It Forward which is an honor system where successful Kickstarter campaigns agree to pledge 5% of their profits to other Kickstarter campaigns.
As you can see from my backer history I’m a big fan of Kickstarter. I really believe in what Kickstarter stands for…and that is simply helping out others who have a dream. We all have a dream and sometimes it needs a little push from others to ensure it is fulfilled.
What am I doing?!?!
The name of my art series is Iconic...because to me and millions of others comic book characters such as Batman or Superman are truly these iconic...larger than life characters.
I plan on creating my new art series using digital watercolor techniques. I want to create digital pieces that look like original watercolor painting but with a slight digital twist.
I want to bring that style to the most feared and beloved comic book characters. These are characters we have all grown up to love....or hate, because who would Batman be without Joker....or Superman without Lex Luthor?
Why comic book characters?
Well for starters I have been a big fan of comic books since I could read. I loved them as a child and still do as an adult. I personally have an attachment to these characters that is hard to describe. Since I was very young I've been reading Batman, Spiderman, X-men...so its almost as if you get to know these characters as friends in a crazy way. (I'm not a psycho...I promise!)
In 2012 I sold my graffiti style artwork of comic book, movie and video game characters at the NY Comic Con and sold out by the 3rd day. And I wanted to attend the NY Comic Con in 2013 but I wanted to bring a new style to the show.
I would love to bring my artwork back to the New York Comic Con but I will need your help!
The bulk of the money will be spent buying a table at the New York Comic Con and printing the prints out which is probably the most expensive process. Without this project I won't be able to create any prints.
Basically the money funded here will help fund my new project for the New York Comic Con. An art series based off using the toys.
All prints are high quality 100lb paper.
*All prints are sent to you bagged and boarded for their protection*
Here is the list of prints:
3) Wonder Woman
5) Green Lantern
1) Lex Luthor
5) Ra's Al Ghul
6) Cat Woman/Harley Quinn (Love these 2 so much...you have two to choose from.)
How your money will be spent:
Cost of comic convention tables (artist alley tables) *Right now I plan on getting a table at the New York Comic Con '13. If my pledge amount is met and goes beyond $3,000 I will go to more...maybe even do a poll on where I should go*
- Travel expenses to and from conventions
- Shipping of the prints to you
- All of the funding I receive will go directly into this project

And again I just want to say Thank you for taking the time to read about my Kickstarter Project...it really does mean a lot to me.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Well the process itself isn't too time consuming, it normally takes be about 1-2 hours to complete each print but since its digital its not as messy or labor intensive as graffiti artwork. But even though these are digital I plan on doing each piece until its perfect. But unless my computer breaks I'll be able to finish all the pieces.
So the risks involved are very minimal. I would say there are no risks but in anything there are risks.
Yes! I would love to sign all of the prints...so if you want me to sign one just ask me!!
Anything...I wont say I can't do a project! Custom pieces are limited to one...maybe two characters though...say two characters fighting each other...I'm down for that...but too many people in a single print will ruin the detail. But I can seriously do anyone! So don't worry! If you want a custom piece I can do for it... no problem!!
