10 years and thousands of hours in the making. A collected volume of all the silent comic Story Posters I've created.

WHAT ARE STORY POSTERS?

Story Posters combine my love of comics and graphic design. The challenge is to combine fun, self-contained, comics with graphic design elements so the story makes sense but also works as an over-all piece of art. Each one is different with it’s own look and feel, some emphasize the story-telling, others focus more on design but that’s what make’s each one unique and fun to do.

THE PLAN 

The book will be 40 full-color, 12x16 pages with a color softcover, which makes for a 24x16 two-page spread (it's going to be big!).

39 of the 40 posters are done, only one more to go and I’ll be updating this page with information on how that’s going throughout the month. 

Because of the over-sized nature of the book, the printing costs are quite high but I believe it's important to see the posters at their original 12x16 size. 

Individual posters have from 50 to over 100 hours of work behind each one. 

The official release will be at the 2011 NEW YORK COMIC-CON. It'll be close but I think I can get it printed by then. The rewards will be mailed out by the end of October (In plenty of time for Christmas!)

WHAT THE MONEY FOR?

Because of the over-sized nature of the Poster Book the majority of the money will go towards printing of the book and individual Story Posters.

12x16 Story Posters Book ($8700) I've gotten several quotes but decided on a local printer I've worked with before because they do good work and I can be on hand to insure good color and printing. 

Individual Posters ($1000) Estimated but will ultimately depend on the final number of backers. 

Shipping, tubes, envelopes ($3000) The book will be expensive to ship since it needs to be mailed flat with reinforcement to prevent bending in transit. Estimated but will ultimately depend on the final number of backers. 

After Kickstarter and Amazon percentages are subtracted the $12,500 won't actually cover everything but it will get be most of the way there. Thank you!

    WALKING ON THE SUN: I will make you your very own completely customized 48 panel Story Poster! Have a character you've been dying to see in print? If you supply a plot, script or concept that will fit into 48 panels, I'll use it to make you an ORIGINAL Story Poster just for you AND send you 50 printed posters! Use it to propose to someone! Immortalize that wild 50th birthday bash! Get that novel idea you've always wanted to write but never did out of your head! It's all up to you. Of course, there are a few restrictions. Mostly, no xxx obviously, please be sure it's an idea you have the rights to, that kind of thing. Take a look at the other 48 panel Story Posters I've done before so you have an idea of the styling and pacing that you can expect. PLUS: Of course you'll also get a copy of the completed Story Posters book and "Fan" Story Poster to enjoy ahead of time while I'm working on your concept. I'll do my absolute best to finish these and get them to you by Christmas this year but they will be done in the order of first backers first.
