About this project

Kaijuly 2017

What is Kaijuly? It's a mash up of the Japanese word kaiju, meaning "strange beast" or "giant monster" and July. The challenge is to draw a different kaiju every day for the month of July. Kaijuly 2017 is the compilation of kaiju drawings for you to enjoy in one booklet. The kaiju take inspiration from mythological and natural creatures mixed together.

You can see all the kaiju drawings on my Instagram, starting from here. But, here are some for you to see right now.

 

The Booklet

The booklet features all 31 kaiju drawings taken from my sketchbook. The final size of the booklet is about 5.5 by 8.5 inches and here's the cover.

Each page features one kaiju by itself. The interior paper has a matte finish, 70# weight, and cover is 10pt C1S, which means it's coated on the front side and heavier stock than the interior pages. Because the drawings are in black and white only, you can color the kaiju in, adding your own interpretation of the beasts.

The PDF will include any new kaiju from the Super Rumble reward tiers.

The Goal

The funding goal covers a print run of 100, Kickstarter fees, and taxes. All the drawings are scanned in and the layout is done. I'm using a stateside printer, so the turnaround from the end of Kickstarter should be fairly quick.

Your support is the best part of making Kaijuly 2017 a reality!

Thank you for considering the project.

Risks and challenges

This is my seventh Kickstarter, so I'm very familiar with getting projects completed and then delivering the rewards to my backers.
