Welcome to the Skelekin Kickstarter Page!
What is a Skelekin?! Let us show you!!!
Skelekin is the story of a skeleton who rises from the grave on Halloween night only to get a pumpkin stuck on his head. Now he will forever wander the earth as Skelekin! (insert super dramatic music). Skelekin finds out he is no longer scary and goes through a mid death crisis to find his scary again!
You may be asking yourself, how does one come up with such an amazing idea?! Well, the origin of Skelekin began with this...
Let's set the scene...One dark and stormy...mid-afternoon, a child slowly walked through the living room toward the kitchen holding a most dreaded homework folder. Inside this folder? Not just regular homework, but a FAMILY HOMEWORK PROJECT! Gahhhhhh!!! Normally, such an occurrence is very frightening indeed, however this particular family homework project was about Halloween! And for this Halloween loving family...
We made the most of it! And the most of it got us an A for the 3rd grade family project and also sparked a small flame of creativity that grew into a bonfire of collaboration and imagination (marshmallows included).
I took the paragraph we wrote for the project and added a bit more. Dylan just so happens to be a sculptor, model maker, artist of all sorts, which was very convenient for me as I decided Skelekin was a 3D character. This is how our book became sculpturally illustrated! And to answer your question, yes we are still happily married!
Dylan created characters and sets and made the whole world Skelekin lives in, and he did this all on a super small scale budget in a corner of our bedroom...
