Muertos is an art book featuring 66 silent stories about death, which were all created like this: 

Muertos es un libro que contiene 66 historias silentes acerca de la muerte hechas de este modo: 

What is it about? 

This book brings together illustrations conceived through analogy. They are the reflection of that which we all have: on one hand, a side which is alive and is always learning, transforming and regenerating. On the other, we have a side which is in perpetual deterioration, no matter what we do, and is in constant play with the side which is alive.

¿De qué se trata?

Ilustraciones compiladas en un libro, concebidas a base de analogías. Son el reflejo de que todos tenemos, por un lado, una parte viva que aprende, muta, cambia, se regenera, y, por otro, una parte que se deteriora, hagamos lo que hagamos, y que siempre se encuentra jugando con la parte viva.

UPDATE 2

We're at 200% of our funding goal!

I honestly can't find the right words to thank you for your support... but I can think of something we can do to celebrate:

¡Llegamos a 200% de la meta!

Honestamente no encuentro palabras para agradecerles tanto… pero, sí algo para celebrar juntos:

A handmade canvas tote bag!

It will be included as a bonus gift with each and every one of our dear Muertos backers' chosen rewards, as well as for every new backer that chooses rewards #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8 and BONUS REWARD.

My book is a reality already thanks to all of you, and your support will allow me to continue producing new art for a while.

From this moment on, it is more important than ever that you help me by sharing this project with anyone you know that might like it. All the funding received will allow me to create a publishing house (details will be announce as soon as this Kickstarter campaign wraps up), to produce more beautiful art books by artists from all over the world, that I promise will not let you down.

Once again, thank you so much for making this dream come true, and let's keep in touch both through here and at my instagram :)

¡Una bolsa de tela hecha a mano!

La incluiremos a todos y cada uno de los patrocinadores que han apoyado Muertos. De igual manera a los nuevos patrocinadores que se sumen (exclusivo en recompensas #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8 y BONUS REWARD).

Mi libro gracias a ustedes ya es una realidad, con el dinero podré seguir produciendo arte todos los días.

A partir de este momento es más importante que nunca que me ayuden a compartir este proyecto entre las personas a las que crean que puede ser de su agrado, ya que cada nueva recompensa adquirida me dará los recursos para fundar mi propia editorial (misma que anunciaré al finalizar esta campaña de Kickstarter), en ella produciré hermosos libros de otros artistas de todo el mundo que prometo no los decepcionarán.

De nuevo, millones de gracias y seguimos en contacto por este medio y en mi instagram :)

What do I still need to pull this off?

The digital file of the book is ready and set to be printed, but we still need funding in order to pay for the publishing costs and other expenses related to the perks being offered in this campaign, all of which will be swiftly produced in the highest possible quality. I will personally make sure that each reward reaches the hands and homes of everyone that supports our campaign.

As a graphic designer with over 10 years of experience in publishing, I can assure all of our supporters that the final product will not let them down.

¿Qué me falta para llevarlo a cabo?

El archivo digital del libro está listo para imprimir, lo único que necesito es el dinero para pagar al impresor y a los proveedores de los productos que acompañan las recompensas, mismos que se han comprometido a producirlos en el menor tiempo y con la más alta calidad posible. Me aseguraré personalmente que cada recompensa llegue a las manos de todos quienes apoyen la campaña.

Como diseñador gráfico con más de 10 años en la rama editorial, puedo asegurar a los compradores que el producto final no los decepcionará.

How can I support this campaign?

It’s really simple: all you need is a Kickstarter account, adding a payment method, selecting the reward that you’re most interested in, and that’s about it. You will only be charged if we reach our funding goal. Your money and information are safe, since this is one of the most reliable platforms of its kind, which has been used to successfully fund thousands of projects.

You can also support this project by sharing it with your friends and with anybody that you think might be interested in it :)

¿Cómo puedo apoyar esta campaña?

Es muy sencillo, necesitas crear una cuenta en Kickstarter, ingresar tu método de pago, seleccionar la recompensa que desees y listo, el costo de tu recompensa se cargará únicamente si alcanzamos la meta económica que solicitamos. Tu dinero y tus datos están seguros porque se trata de una plataforma confiable con miles de proyectos que han sido financiados exitosamente.

También puedes apoyar el proyecto compartiéndolo con tus amigos o con las personas que creas que puedan estar interesados :)

 

What happens if we reach our goal?

The book and all of the rewards you see will become a reality and will reach the hands of our sponsors as soon as possible (October 2017). The money will allow me to continue producing art, more books and to finance a publishing company that will bring to you more books by talented artists from all over the world.

¿Qué va a pasar si superamos la meta?

El libro y todas las recompensas serían una realidad y estarían en las manos de sus patrocinadores en el menor tiempo posible (Octubre 2017). Con el dinero podré seguir produciendo arte, más libros y podré abrir una editorial en la que produciremos libros de artistas talentosos de todo el mundo.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges:

We rely on external suppliers, so there’s a chance that the manufacturing and delivery times of the products listed as campaign perks might take a little while longer than we’re anticipating, but I will keep all of our supporters informed in case anything happens. Also, if your reward gets lost in the mail, a replacement will immediately be shipped your way (in case the missing item is an original irreplaceable artwork, I will contact you to offer some different handmade artworks to choose from).
-
Al depender de proveedores externos, los productos pueden atrasarse en su producción y entrega, pero, mantendré informados a todas las personas que apoyen esta campaña si eso sucede. También existe el riesgo de que la paquetería extravíe las recompensas, en cuyo caso me comprometo a enviarlas de nuevo hasta que el comprador me asegure que las recibió (si se tratará de artículos irremplazables, me pondré en contacto para ofrecer otras opciones de arte original hecho a mano).
