Who is that weird kid lurking out the window of his dilapidated house? It's Grump! Let's kickstart Grump's 40 page adventure.
Most neighborhoods have that one crazy house. It's wood is rotting. Weeds are flourishing. No matter what time of day it is, it's always in the shadows. Maybe you aren't afraid of that house, but you definitely won't be trick-or-treating there. Just to be safe.
That's where Grump lives.
Grump doesn't realize he's alone. All he knows is that something isn't right. It takes a series of unusual circumstances for Grump to finally meet some neighborhood kids. Now he's about to have his world shaken up!
Like it or not, Grump. You're going outside!
Grump's Blog Beginnings
I'm a professional comic book colorist who's worked at Marvel, DC and Aspen Comics. Some of my favorite artists I've had a chance to work with are Jim Lee and Michael Turner. While I love coloring comics, I also wanted to get back to drawing. Several years ago I started an art blog.
My second blog post was a boy I called Grump. He's a mix of a couple things I like; puffer fish & my Grandpa Max.
Over the years his story expanded. Grump struggled and fussed, one blog post at a time.
After years of Grump blogging I'm extremely excited to say that I have completed a 40 page Grump script that I am in the process of drawing.
The funds raised by this Kickstarter will go towards the completion of Grump's 40 page digital comic, written, drawn and colored by me. I will officially set aside my comic book coloring work and dive full time into Grump.
I have gathered price quotes for the production of the rewards and looked into the cost of packaging and shipping. Reaching my goal will ensure that everyone's rewards will be ready to ship on time.
I'm hard at work drawing Grump pages now. In addition to finishing the pencils, the tasks remaining are digital inks, colors, lettering and design.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
One benefit of Grump being a digital release is that the book is only a download away. No shipping! We can also forget about book printing delays.
I've been careful to budget packaging, and domestic shipping into the other reward tiers. Shipments should be sent out as expected. Although I'm waiting on some of the MINI-PRINT art, I'm confident it will be completed with plenty of time to spare.
I've scheduled myself ample time to complete the art for Grump. Should the worst happen and it's not completed in the scheduled time don't worry. It will be finished shortly thereafter with the best quality possible. I will update regularly. Everyone will know exactly how the project is progressing.
Thanks for taking a look. Get ready for Grump!
