Get yourself lost in the leafy undergrowth and howl with the wild beasts of Puck Collective's Jungle Book Club! An exhibition exploring the scale and beauty of the Jungle fauna with proportional artworks that reflect the size of the animals depicted, from the great to the small. Coming to The Book Club this April and branching across to their sister establishment, Stories, The Jungle Book Club will bring together our 32 member strong line up of illustrators, print makers, painters, potters and paper cutters to work on one big showcase. Each collective member will produce a design inspired by a Jungle animal at a scale suited to said creature, large for large and small for small, resulting in a unique Jungle adventure for you to explore. We will also be filling the space with all the flora of the jungle, vines and ferns made from cut paper, birds of paradise flying on ceiling mobiles, great collaborative murals, window displays and more. We really want it to be a feast for the eyes!

We've got some fantastic rewards, from BIG limited edition prints, to fake tattoos and our very own trump game!
What we'll do with the money
In true Puck fashion, there will be a range of events, games and workshops at jungle themed ‘Puck Drawing Clubs’ that will enhance the experience and give you an opportunity to get involved with the spectacle. Life drawing classes, print workshops, origami and paper craft events, field trips to the zoo, we have no end of ideas for these events and now we have two great venues to base them in. We have managed to fund the building of the show from our own pockets so whatever happens, there will be a Jungle! However, we would like your help to plan and host the best events that we can muster.
Risks and challenges
Puck Collective have been putting on large shows since 2010 so we have good experience on the potential pitfalls and how to overcome them. We have tackled some adventurous concepts like temporary tattoo parlours and have designed and produced our own card game, and all have been great fun and a great success. It is always a challenge to get a show off the ground and handling 32 members can be like herding cats but this show's construction is under way and we will build the best we can. Our past Puck Drawing Clubs have been great successes but would have always benefited from some working budget. We are not an agency and all the events we run are funded from our own pockets and sometimes our ideas have to be held back by our limited funds. All our members are ready to go and are not afraid of hard work, so with your backing, we can put everything into making our event extra special!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
