THANK YOU, so much, for taking the time to check out my project. TesseraE I is small art book that I've had in my mind for a few years and it's something I hope to be able to continue. TesseraE started as a collection of drawings, but I soon discovered after getting them all in one place, that they are all related. They are all coming from a place that I seem to return to. TesseraE, to me, has become a state of consciousness that I am exploring and this is my way of getting them out into the world and sharing them. 

I hope you'll support this project, it means so much me and if you decide to, THANK YOU. Truly. So much. I can't express how grateful I am. And I am equally grateful that things like Kickstarter are around to help make this stuff real. I have some pretty good rewards listed with prints (check them out below!), originals and commissions. I am always open to reward ideas so If you think of a reward that you'd like to see. PLEASE let me know and I'll drop it in there.

Asking for money is never easy. And I understand budgets, more than anything. So if you are unable to donate but still want to help, please consider sharing the project. Sharing is essential and every share counts.

Thank you again!

Cheers,

.: D.K.

Risks and challenges

I have done my best to be as prepared as I can for this. I have the books laid out, I have a printer on stand by to print when I am ready and I have all the prints in hand to fulfill any print tier.

The biggest challenge will be the original art rewards and completing those in a timely manner but I plan on working hard with the backer and getting them the best possible work I can produce.
