NEMO

Artists can be awfully temperamental when suffering art block. None more so than in the early career of fine artist, Walter Sickert.

Under the apprenticeship of James Whistler, a Master of the arts, Walter becomes increasingly frustrated as his work receives constant rejection.

Not getting the respect he deserves, Walter soon goes to extreme lengths to achieve the inspiration he needs to make his masterpiece.

Using his past theatrical skills he creates the persona of Jack to help gain artistic clarity. But as he gains an increasingly infamous reputation as the Ripper,

Walter still struggles to secure the inspiration he desires through his victims provoking him to take greater risks as Jack. As he aims for a victim of a higher class, how far will he go to achieve success?

This story follows Walter’s final performance as Jack the Ripper, so…

Why Kickstarter?

We're running the 'Nemo' Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds for printing.

Using Kickstarter, we're able to reward our backers by offering Kickstarter exclusive rewards, as well as the guarantee you'll be receiving the book first!  

'Nemo' is 100% complete and, bar the backers' names being put into the book, ready to go to print. Kickstarter is a fantastic site, which helps us reach as many people as possible, and we're always delighted to hear the great feedback we receive from our fans.

Campaign timeline

Thank you!

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our campaign. If you've got this far, then we hope you've found it interesting. It has been incredible creating ‘Nemo’. 

 Having this project come to life means…

 to me, and I hope you enjoy it!

Risks and challenges

Since 2015, Blue Fox Comics have directly run thirteen successful comic book Kickstarters, and have helped three other projects get funded.

We have a very good understanding of exactly what it takes, not only to run a Kickstarter campaign, but to successfully deliver on the rewards.

'Nemo' is complete, with the only outstanding tasks being to add backers names to the back of the book.

As soon as those tasks are complete, we can send the book to the printers.

Should any issues arise, we will let you know immediately, along with any action we need to take.

Feel free to look at our previous Kickstarter campaigns for evidence of our ability to successfully communicate with our backers post-campaign.

Thank you.
