About

HELP US FINISH THIS INCREDIBLE LIFE SIZE GRAPHIC NOVEL

We still have 100 paintings to paint and a gigantic gallery display to build out! 

Imagine walking through a fine art gallery and being immersed in a fantastic story. Painting after beautiful painting take you further into the world of Th3 Anomaly; an exhibit of 300 paintings, and dozens of props, costumes, and miniatures. 

This massive visual art project was created to redefine the very idea of what a graphic novel could be!

Just how big is this display? Th3 Anomaly isn't just another graphic novel. This is 300 large, hand painted, gallery quality works of fine art. Some of these paintings are more than 5 feet tall. 

The paintings will be displayed atop each other, like the panels on the page of a graphic novel. Only the panels of Th3 Anomaly will float 3-dimentionally on each other and the pages will be 10 feet tall!

This project was started in 2011 by David Landry. David is a professional illustrator creating art full time at abrasiveMedia art studio in Nashville, Tennessee. 

Working with a traditional fine art approach, every painting is being created from original photographic references. 

Dozens of costumes and props were created and modeled on actors portraying the characters.

 Over 5,000 photographs were taken of the actors, miniatures, and locations. 

More than 7,500 hours have been spent making the world of Th3 Anomaly so far. 

 200 of the paintings have already been created. That's right, this project is 2/3 finished. The gallery opening is scheduled for November 2015. 

You  can read the finished chapters of the graphic novel at: th3anomaly.com!

The story of “Th3 Anomaly” follows the mysterious adventures of Nicola Tesla, Sarah Bernheart, Jules Verne, Orius, and many other memorable fictitious characters set in a steam-punk alternate history.

Does Th3 Anomaly sound like something you want to experience? Would you like this incredible exhibit to go on tour and possibly visit the city you live in? Make it happen. Let's complete this project together and launch it bigger than even David dreamed it could be!

The funding from this Kickstarter campaign will be used:
-To purchase the remaining supplies 
-To rent gallery space and build out the gallery display
-To publish the graphic novel

Any additional funding above the goal will go towards taking the show on tour! 

Risks and challenges

"Th3 Anomaly was started with an initial, successful fundraiser campaign which funded the supplies to get the project going. After working for three years on the project I have hit my share of snags and setbacks. But I have pushed through and feel confident that this project will not only finish on schedule but now has the growth potential to become something so much bigger than I had first started out to do. I am a very dedicated artist, and I am backed by a supportive art community at abrasiveMedia. (abrasivemedia.org) Whatever challenges this project may face in the future I know that we will overcome." - David Landry

Specific Challenges:

Facilitating such a large display. The final gallery experience will require approximately 500 linear feet of wall space in an enclosed gallery setting. By raising the necessary funds through this campaign we will have no problem renting out a great facility for this display.

Storage. 300 paintings takes up a lot of storage while not on display. abrasiveMedia has graciously found a solution to the challenge of storing such a large amount of art.

The growth of an artist. While working for 4 years on these paintings David's style and skills has matured. Some earlier paintings have either been entirely re-painted or altered. But for the most part David has fully embraced his development and turned it into an addition to the show where viewers can walk through his growth as an artist while creating such a long term painting project.

Copyright issues. Thankfully there are none. Before this project even started a lawyer looked over the content of Th3 Anomaly and gave the all clear. Every possible due diligence was given to researching any possible conflicts. All names, characters, places, and events portrayed in 'Th3 Anomaly' are copyrighted (c) 2011 by David Landry and are entirely fictional. Any resemblance to real life is happening entirely in your mind and you may wish to seek out psychological help.
