About this project
"But it was not in these vortices of complete alienage that he saw Brown Jenkin. That shocking little horror was reserved for certain lighter, sharper dreams which assailed him just before he dropped into the fullest depths of sleep. He would be lying in the dark fighting to keep awake when a faint lambent glow would seem to shimmer around the centuried room, showing in a violet mist the convergence of angled planes which had seized his brain so insidiously. The horror would appear to pop out of the rat-hole in the corner and patter toward him over the sagging, wide-planked floor with evil expectancy in its tiny, bearded human face"
Hello, and thank you for taking a look at my project. My name is Eden and I am a self taught artist living in Monterey, Ca. I am a lifelong horror and sci-fi fanatic with a deep appreciation for Lovecraftian mythos.
Of all the material in the Lovecraft canon to draw from, there's one creature in particular that always stood out to me: Brown Jenkin. A large part of what makes the tale 'The Dreams in the Witch House' so unnerving is that the horrors hit you in your most vulnerable state, that of sleeping and dreaming. When you went to bed the first time you read that story, did you secretly scan the room for any suspicious holes and darkened corners along the baseboards? Did you start at any sound in the dark, envisioning that furry thing creeping toward your bed? I did.
Now I want to scare myself, and hopefully you, all over again by bringing that creature to life as a horribly furry, malevolent, collectible figure!
By contributing to this project you will be directly responsible for the production of my Brown Jenkin figure, which is made entirely by hand (from casting the body and parts to painting and applying fur.) Every dollar you pledge goes into procuring much needed materials and equipment for the figure itself and accompanying rewards, streamlining my studio, and providing me with the means to keep creating and producing monsters on a larger scale. Won't you give Brown Jenkin a home? He's ever so lonesome.
Risks and challenges
I have already created a prototype, and am confident in my ability to reproduce it on a larger scale. The only real risk associated with this project is that, if the pledge volume is very high, it may take me longer than expected to make and mail the figures out. The reason for any delay would be that I am working on this campaign entirely on my own, and that each and every figure is created by hand...from casting the form and individual parts, to painting, attaching fur and generally just making it as disgusting as possible. I have I think, however, afforded myself more than enough time to fulfill the pledges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Great question! The figure is approximately 7" tall, 4" wide, and 7"long. Small enough to fit on a desk, big enough to give you the creeps. ;)
Your card will only be charged at the end of the project deadline (May 12th), if I meet or exceed the funding goal.
