About this project

The character of Stompadon was invented by performance artist Kelsey Wailes as part of a competition called Super Art Fight. Wearing a massive mask, gloves and a tail, Wailes became the bug-eyed dinosaur that drew, creating mad-cap murals in a 25-minute time limit.

Stompadon is now taking on a life of its own, with a plush toy:

... truly fancy pieces of art:

... and a weapons-grade adorable children's book, written by Stompadon's dad and illustrated by Stompadon.

the PDF: A pdf of Stompadon: The Book filled with the story of Stompadon's birth and how he saves his family from the evil Grumpasaurus.

the PLUSH: An 8-inch tall plush of Stompadon.

the PRINT: A 5x7 print of the Stompadon Anatomy Lesson.

the BOOK: A 24-page children's book called Stompadon: The Book. Seriously, how do you defeat a Grumpasaurus? There's only one way to find out, and that's to read this.

the CLAY: 2-inch tall clay sculptures of Stompadon in randomly selected costumes. There's six different variants waiting to be hatched by you.

ORIGINAL ART: Currently, this is either the Stompadon Anatomy Lesson original inks, or the Self Portrait.

an 8x8 Masterpiece: A painting of Stompadon by Stompadon, made especially for you.

The Backer Levels:

Kelsey Wailes is the artist and creator behind Stompadon. To make this Kickstarter run, she's formed a team. A team with a special set of skills. Jamie Noguchi, the creator of Puppy Cow, is the Plush Specialist. Darren J. Gendron, part of the team that created The Monster Alphabet and Póstumo, is the Kicking Expert. And Mr. T is not returning our calls to be our Exclusive Fool Pitier.

Risks and challenges

Stompadon is an incredibly complex plush sculpt, with his unique hair, horns and eyeballs combo. We've already prototyped him with the factory, and know that the cost of the initial run of Stompadons will be about $10,000, not counting Kickstarter's cut, the cost of shipping it to the backers, or printing the children's book and prints.

While this is Stompadon's first Kickstarter, we're working with some highly experienced Kickstarter veterans, who between them have launched, managed and fulfilled five different campaigns.

The plush is fully designed. The art for the Stompadon's children book is done. The art for the prints are done. The Clay Stompadons are sculpted and fired. All that we need now is the money to pay the bills and the time to send you the adorable.
