About this project
Fire burns hot with passion and enthusiasm, it can be brave, valiant and often rebellious. But, because of its nature, it can also be a bit snappy, uncontrollable and angry! #@&%!
Sound familiar? We all have a little fire inside of us, but now we can have a cute, nerdy, and fun way to show it!
UPDATE: All 4 toys are unlocked! I am now offering a wide variety of rewards. Single or multiple plush toys, combo packs including my book from my first successfully funded project in 2011 and commissions are all available. Here's the break down:
I grew up collecting toys and comics (not gonna lie... I still do). I wanted to incorporate a collecting aspect to my creations too! With that in mind, I designed a specific marker indicating the plush's edition on its hang tag. Show the world that you were one of the first to support this new concept and reserve your 1st EDITION today!
Corvink Elements were birthed from "Unconscious Ink;" one of my earliest projects. As a way to pay homage to that fact, I decided that I would open a limited amount of commissions for me to draw your concepts! For anyone who pledges on the $50 Commission pack, I will draw a little inkling for you! If you have any creatures, mixed up animals (penguin/squirrels perhaps?) or even something else you wanna see drawn in my style, this is your chance! You will also receive a signed 8x8 print of your concept along with your book and plush!
POSTER ILLUSTRATION COMMISSIONS
Some of you may know me from my print work and comics, and know that I also really enjoy drawing detailed illustrations as well as cartoons. Because of this I opened up a new "Ultimate Collection and Illustration Pack to commissions me to do a very detailed piece for you. Includes a character and a background. Also, In addition to a physical copy I will also send you digital version of the final piece.
I wanted to create something my inner nerd would love to own while bringing something to life that we could all emotionally feel connected to. So, I combined these two concepts:
It's nerdy! Sci-fi & fantasy gamers, readers, and movie goers are all familiar with the concept of elemental magic. However, as much as we love the idea of these mystical forces, we don't often see the embodiment of them in any physical form we can own. Well, until now that is!
It fits our actual personalities! Being an artist I love the idea of creating things that reflect our "real" selves. Yes, we are all happy at times, but what about our other emotions? We also get mad, sad, and scared, yet that doesn't make us any less lovable! In fact, our emotions are arguably rather endearing. Just look at these little guys, don't you just want to cuddle them and make them feel better?

WHO IS DENIS CARON & WHAT IS CORVINK?
I started as a webcomic artist in 2009 and began exhibiting at conventions selling shirts, prints, and books based on them. As my ideas and projects began expanding beyond just L.A.W.L.S. (my main comic), Corvink was created to brand my art and other projects.
Collecting toys has always been a passion of mine since I was a kid and creating them has always been a dream! These plush Elements are the first of many ideas I will be creating under the Corvink banner and your support on this Kickstarter will make that dream a possibility.
Risks and challenges
I would like to bring all four Elements to life, you know, to balance the "elemental energy" in the world. Being able to reach all three stretch goals beyond the initial project is ideal, and getting there is the main challenge.
I've already worked for months with my production company to fully prototype all four designs. They have done an amazing job with quality and worked with me to make sure they met my exact expectations. I know exactly how much each plush will cost to produce as well as the cost of shipping and customs. What I'm asking for this Kickstarter is only to fund the cost of production, the rest I've already budgeted for and will pay for myself.
That being said, every stretch goal reached allows another plush to be produced and the money made beyond the initial four will be used to pay for the other expenses I mentioned (customs, shipping, etc).
Other than that they have all been tested, are CE-approved, and are ready to go into manufacturing. Basically all that’s left is this project being successfully funded and they will be made and shipped to your doors with in a few months of funding! :]Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
