About

The Mythical Alphabet and Cryptozoology Icon Posters

$1,830

64

Hi. My name is Mark and I'm hoping you'll help me print my two poster project. The Mythical Alphabet and Cryptozoology (Now a STAFF PICK! YAY!).

THANK YOU so much to everyone who has supported this project! If you missed this kickstarter and would like links to where the posters might be available, future projects or just where to find me online, please visit MarkGonyea.com.

Since my earliest days of playing Dungeons and Dragons and watching the X-Files I've been interested in mythical and legendary creatures. I've taken that interest of the unknown and my graphic design skills and put it all into this iconic A to Z of mythical beasts. It includes my favorites like Cyclops, Minotaur, Werewolf, and of course Zombie.

Designing an icon means making a simplified graphic symbol that represents a real, fantasy, or abstract entity. In this case, definitely dark, creepy, spooky, fantastic entities.

The poster will be 18x24, printed on at least a 100 lb. paper, mailed in a sturdy shipping tube and labeled as fragile. The postcard will be a 4x6 version of the poster image and printed on 14-16 pt. card stock. 

Admit it, we've all seen things we can't explain. Cryptozoology is defined as the study of "hidden animals". The animals cryptozoologists study are often animals whose existence lacks verified physical evidence but appear in myths, legends, or reported sightings, such as Bigfoot and the Chupacabra. Within the poster, each creature icon includes the name below and it's most commonly reported location.

This poster is not an exact A-Z (because there were certain creatures with the same beginning initial that I definitely wanted to include) but is in alphabetical order. 

The poster will be 18x24, printed on at least a 100 lb. paper, mailed in a sturdy shipping tube and labeled as fragile.The postcard will be a 4x6 version of the poster image and printed on 14-16 pt. card stock. 

Thanks for looking at my project and I hope you'll support it!

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately I don't think I can guarantee delivery by Christmas this year. Though, if successful, I should be able to have domestic U.S. tubes delivered in time for the holidays (priority will be given to the $60 pledge level first).

Also happy to answer any questions you have!
