About me and this project:

I've been doing zombie caricatures for 9 years at comic book conventions and events, and it's become quite a thing, as you can imagine. It was great! I was actually covering my event and travel costs and making money. Sadly, it was cannibalizing my comic book sales, most of which were geek culture, slice of life books that had little to nothing to do with zombies. 

So, in order for me to try capitalize on my growing zombie fan base and regrow my dwindling reader fan base, challenged myself to write a zombie comic book, the book that eventually was illustrated by Daniel Crosier and published by Bluewater Productions. The story? It was a story about me drawing zombie caricatures of folks at a comic convention. Since people that I was drawing kind of became a part of the story, I decided that each zombie caricature would come with this very meta book.

After a few years, I started to feel a little weird giving folks that I had drawn a book that I DIDN'T draw. So, after talking to Dan and Bluewater, with their blessing, I am now drawing the next edition of this book, a book YOU could have me draw you in! I can draw you in several different ways: as a background EXTRA, a larger speaking CAMEO (there's only 7 of these), a STARRING ROLE (there's only 3: the cab driver, the flight attendant, or the guy with diarrhea), or you can even be the VILLIAN! (which appears in the book about 2 dozen times AND on the cover and basically gets all of the incentives everyone else gets, including prints of all of the celebrity zombies pictured on the cover!)

Budget:

My low initial goal is just $2000, which goes to cover the printing of the first 500 copies of this book, the shipping and estimated campaign and transaction fees. Actually, I think that'll leave me $108 short of my costs, but I'm determined to make this go. In addition, if we exceed our goal, I have some great stretch goals planned for each stretch goal we pass, so make sure to spread the word: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Share this on Facebook, Reddit, Twitter or wherever you socialize. I will make it worth your while!

Risks and challenges

At this point, I've pretty much completed all of the art for the book -- interiors and exteriors. I just need to draw YOU into the book! As soon as this campaign ends, I will start inserting all of the undrawn characters and background extras.

Keep in mind that the estimate I have set for date of delivery is very generous. I hope to have the remainder of the comic book drawn, printed and ready to delivery months earlier so long as I don't have delays related to required backer photos being e-mailed to me promptly (I will contact these backers directly with pose requests); unforseen technology difficulties; intervening freelance work deadlines; and/or unexpected illnesses or other unforeseen family issues.

At that point, I will send the page files to the printer, so it'll depend on the turnaround with them. So, I don't plan on this being one of those campaigns you forgot you contributed to and years have passed before you receive anything. We'll be talking 3-4 months barring aforementioned circumstances (or if you commissioned a zombie caricature with your purchase and you're not in the book).

I will keep everyone posted on the progress of completion and reward deliveries along the way.
