FantaSea is an art book filled with a mysterious world of underwater lore; intertwined with mermaids, fishies, and lurking menaces galore....Come, join us to embark on a journey into the depths of FantaSea!   

 As funding progresses, we will be revealing upcoming stretch goals! Thank you for all the support! <3

Siren Cove Artists hold over 12 years of combined industry experience, between prior Studio and Freelance clients. We are also independent artists who have a dream of making passion projects come to life.

FantaSea is our launch title, and is an entirely independent artist created book, imagined by the artists of Siren Cove Studios: Marisa Erven @marzie_e and Heather Gross @heathersketcheroos.

We look forward to sharing our vision with you, and hope also to continue making products that bring smiles and joy!

Risks and challenges

The book layout and artwork has been made in advance to ensure no delay in gathering content and readying for print.

That said, inevitably there are risks and challenges with any project. Below are some areas identified as potential unique risks and/or challenges:

PRINTING:
The books are being printed locally on the West Coast, to minimize production and distribution time, as well as to ensure a certain level of environmental standards for ink and production.

Estimated print production to final delivery time is 3-5 weeks. There may be variance in this due to distributor and/or shipping issues due to inclement weather.

SHIPPING:
Shipping methods and costs can change, but we have built the structure of the Kickstarter to mitigate that risk, reflecting the latest 2018 updates. Gathering and sending items is also a big part delivering a Kickstarter in a timely fashion, so we are grateful to have extra hands from the team willing to help expedite this process.

QUALITY CONTROL:
We want everyone to get the highest quality in end product. Because of that, we are attentive to ensure quality control to end consumer.

SKETCH FULFILLMENT:
We wanted to offer original sketches to you as a part of the project. We also recognize, however, that we have limited time available between contracts, independent freelance, and conventions.

To ensure you get everything you choose we set a strict limit on the number of original pieces available. That way, you are getting a very special item, and we ensure fulfillment regardless of schedule!
