THE BIRTH OF A 365 DAYS PROJECT

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In February 2012, I created my first ever KICKSTARTER project and collaborated with 15 other artists on a comic book anthology called GAME OVER: INSERT MORE QUARTERS (click to view). The project was 300% funded and I've gained some invaluable experience. Since then, I've wanted to work on a second KICKSTARTER project: a personal one. Yet time and again, I found (and continue to find) myself deeply in love with collaborations. In this project, I get to work with 15 different artists that I've met in the past year.

THE BREAKDOWN

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've spent the last 11 months indulging and drowning myself in blue pencils as a form of creative release from my professional work. What came out of it was a project called “SIXTY SHADES OF BLUE”. This project consists of 60 different original blue pencil illustrations influenced largely by my own Asian roots and my love for Western Art. I am now in the midst of compiling these illustrations into a 6-by-9 inch, 95-page art book: 60 blue pencil illustrations, 20 preliminary sketches and thumbnails and 15 blue pencil illustrations from the invited artists. Here's the breakdown of my goals:

Risks and challenges

The only risks and challenges lie in printing the book. As I've never printed a color book, it will take some time to figure out the right print quality for a book like this one. At the moment, I'm sourcing a graphic designer to design this book together with me. Although I am an artist myself, I believe having a professional designer to aid me in the creation of the book will make the end product so much more professional. By the end of 30 days if I can't find one, I'll design it myself. Also, getting the invited artists to finish their drawings might be a risk but they are all professional people so there won't be much issue. This is not the first time I've created a KICKSTARTER project and all the artwork for this book is almost done. What is left is scanning and organizing the project itself.
