Week Four - More Bonus Action & Original Art
Hi everyone! Week 4 - one month in, one month to go until funding ends and I get to serious work on the new book. As Bon Jovi might say, "Whoa, we're halfway there!" (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
Bonus rewards time: so, my not-so-keen detective work revealed that it was Mr. David Shapiro who bumped up his pledge amount to put us over $6000. He'll be getting that drawing of li'l Bird-man with an odd balloon (see the update from Week 2). As bonuses for Morgan Miller and Matt Madden, I did a couple of small, postcard-sized watercolors - here, have a look:
For backer #100 - Ryan Hipp - I drew this rabbit gentleman:
There'll be more of these to come - we're getting close to $6500 (amazing!), so whoever bumps the total up over $6500 gets the next one. Also coming soon: a little behind-the-scenes post about my first book The Aviary to give you a little taste of the kind of thing you'll be seeing as work on the new book progresses. That should be up sometime this week, so stay tuned...
I'll leave you with a few photos from my home studio / office, a tiny little room that I've lined with lots of prints and art to brighten the place and inspire me while I work (you can catch a glimpse of some in the project video if you look close). Below are just a few items: two by Evan Dorkin - a commissioned drawing and a page of original art from an issue of Pirate Corp$! / Hectic Planet, an old favorite of mine - and art prints from the always-inspiring Chris Ware and Dan Clowes. Talk to you soon...
