Artbound: A Collection of EarthBound Fan Art

$8,756

273

I played EarthBound for the first time almost 28 years ago. Since then I have probably played through to the end at least a dozen times. I'm obsessed. Recently I decided to turn that obsession into a personal project by creating illustrations based on some of my favorite characters and environments from the game. What started out as a fun little project has turned into a huge collection of over 50 original drawings!

After one of my drawings recently went viral (receiving over 10,000 likes), I realized that EarthBound fans might want to have their very own high-quality collection of my work.

When the project is funded, I'll use the money to have the books printed immediately. As soon as they are delivered to me, I'll ship them out. For the custom drawings awarded in the higher tiers, I'll need a few more weeks. But those rewards are digital, so no shipping is required. I imagine I can have all books and rewards delivered to everyone by July.

This book represents many hours of my life. Please consider helping me make this book a reality!

Thank you,

Shane

Risks and challenges

There really isn't much risk. I have all the art created and ready to go. At this point all I need is the money to pay to have the books printed and shipped.

I hope backers will be patient with me while I make the 10 custom drawings, because each one takes a few hours.
