Eatmypaint is a weekly webcomic that's created entirely using the formidable power of Microsoft Paint!
You may have seen some of my comics here and there on your journey through the internet but now you have the opportunity to grab hold of a physical tome full of over 52 comics that the rest of the world cannot see. BEHOLD!
For the whole of 2018 I made hand-drawn comics every week that only the awesome people who supported the comics on PATREON had access to. In 2019 I began drawing the exclusive comics in Microsoft Paint. Seeing this evolution of design made me want to breathe new life into the hand-drawn comics of 2018.
Then, I thought it would be a great opportunity to compile these truly beautiful comics into a book, not only for Patrons but for anybody who is strong enough to subject their eyes to the purest of glories!
UPDATE: Thanks to the incredible backing for this project, we have unlocked SEVERAL STRETCH GOALS meaning the book will now be a 60+ page HARDBACK LANDSCAPE TOME
So yes, the book will be a 60 page collection of comics redrawn in Microsoft Paint plus any more pages we can unlock during the kickstarter campaign! It's going to be PUR bound and the paper will be silk finished on the inside with a heavier cover finished in a soft matt laminate, for that gorgeous touch.
Here's a closer look at the tiers and what you can get for backing this project!
If the campaign does really well then I have lined up a few extra rewards to make the project even more exciting!
One of those would be to flip the book on it's side so that each comic would have it's own page! This would more than double the size of the book and should be a sufficient weight to do some damage if you want it to! Especially if we manage to reach the dizzying heights of 400% funded where the HARDBACK (SUPER T H I C C) book is unlocked.
The first stretch goal after funding will be to include 4 sticker designs based on a few comics from the book! Patreon Supporters will be able to suggest which comics would make great stickers as they have already had access to the hand-drawn comics.
Thank you so much for taking the time out to see this project and possibly even thinking this book is something you would be interested in! I'm really excited about this and I hope you would like to be part of the journey!
Risks and challenges
his will be my maiden voyage into the world of creating Kickstarter projects. I've been taking inspiration from projects that I really enjoyed and meticulously studying ones that were funded safely.
I wanted the tiers, rewards and stretch goals to be as fun and as thoughtful as those I would consider throwing my own money at. The book itself is a reflection of these goals.
I've self-published my own zines many times before and know what specifications produce the best quality book that feels great to read in your very own hands.
With all this in mind, I'm confident that every reward can be fulfilled by the specified date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
