S. A. Gibson is preparing to publish the third and final book of the woodpunk series, “After the Collapse.” In hopes of recruiting the finest cover art and design, we plan to commission David Steele to produce art for the cover. For cover design, we plan to employ Rachel Bostwick. One example of both their work can be seen in the video of this campaign. This video is a promotion trailer produced by Rachel Bostwick, which uses some drawings of David Steele. The art and the design, in the video, were created for the second book in the series, A Dangerous Way. David Steele is an graphic and storyboard artist specializing in cover work and illustrations for books. He has worked as a storyboard artist for films and television commercials as well as designing artwork for computer game apps. David works on commissioned portraits, tattoo design, and film projects. Rachel Bostwick is a graphic-designer who produces professionally-designed book covers, trailers, and marketing graphics. Both these artists produced cover art and marketing artwork for books one and two of the series. The campaign goal is $200. That level of funding will cover a minimal order of one drawing and cover design for one version of the book. If the goal is exceeded additional art for the book's interior and additional marketing products, such as book trailers, paperback, hardcover, and audio covers will be commissioned.
Risks and challenges
The good news for backers is that fulfillment of their rewards will be readily accommodated. The money this project asks for will simply fund the cover art and the cost of backer rewards. All books can easily be printed, author-autographed, and mailed without any delays outside of normal processing. The same can be said of emailing ebooks. The author has full rights and ownership of all books in the series, and original digital files.
Assuming the goal is reached, there are only very unlikely setbacks which will keep backers from getting rewards. These unlikely scenarios include either or both artists being unable or unwilling to produce incentives. The author will keep backers informed and find alternative incentives if necessary.
The timeline should allow all incentives to be easily produced.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
