Welcome to Guest Checks...My name is Super Ugly, I am an artist from the Bay Area. Growing up I would sit around drawing on any scrap of paper and notepad I could find. Before becoming a full time artist, I waited tables and I would find myself doodling on the Guest Checks they gave us to take your order on. Some of my brightest ideas were sketched on a Guest Check. I went to all my friends and gave them some Guest Checks, told them to draw anything they want, no pressure. The response I got was so much more than I expected. What the artists were able to do within the borders of the check was amazing. I have collected my favorites into an 80 page art book. 

the Guest Checks blog has been featured on Huffington Post, Laughing Squid, FoodDiggity, Junk Culture and other fine places. 

Making a book was always in the idea of the blog... I am asking for $15,000 to cover the printing costs, the shipping costs and for all of the incentives. I have been running a free blog and the artists have been contributing the pieces with the hope of being in a really good looking book.  A book of this quality can really make production costs high, but I feel that this is the best way to display the incredible art from the blog. The artists would get copies of the book and be a part of an upcoming Guest Checks Art Show, where they get the money brought in by their piece. The more funding we get goes toward more books and looking for distribution. This is about making sure that the artists get something to show for their incredible work, as well as getting their art into the hands of people who might fall in love with their stuff. 

The Final Product

This is an epic Full Color, 80 page Hardcover art book that measures 9x9inches.  Over 50 artists with more than 150 checks, each check different, different media, different use of the same space. I am so proud to be among the artists involved with this project and it would be a dream of mine to get this book funded and into some well deserving hands. 

We have put together some fun rewards that promote the artists and the creativity of their Guest Checks. Certain artists have donated ORIGINAL Guest Checks to be given out for rewards. This book is all ready to be produced and just needs our friends to help with production costs, the more we bring in the more books we get to give to artists and maybe get into a store near you. Thanks you for your support.

Stretch Goals

We chose 5 of our favorite Guest Checks and made stickers out of them...

We love this N8 VanDyke Print so much, we want to give it to more people.

At this point my gratitude would know no end.. So anyone who dug deep and gave over $75 gets an ORIGINAL Super Ugly Guest Check. I will draw it just for you.. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We are asking for this amount to help reach a number for the book that would allow us to give all of you books, as well as the artists, with any extra going toward more books which we can shop for distribution. The only risk that comes with this project is, to truly get the word out, you must put forth a respectable product. We will try to produce the highest quality book to honor the art and the artists who contributed to this project.

One challenge that comes up is promotion, and we think we have a book you will want to see, or maybe someone you know would like this book... Tell a friend, share this on every social media site. The press we have recieved brought a lot of eyes to our site, but word of mouth keeps it going.
