I'm trying to create a world in which people can forget about their worries for a while. A reason to use our imaginations and forget about the mundane things of every day life. It doesn't matter what age you are, we all need to disappear in to a magical world sometimes.
I teach Art and Art therapy by day and I understand the power of imagination. If you step out of your stressed brain for a while and picture a utopian world where happy things surround you, you will feel in a more positive state.
Whether you use these as collectible ornaments and frame the prints or you don an explorers hat and venture to the garden, forest or beach nearby, to imagine some fun and let go for a while, whisper your worries to these creatures and let them share your load, or simply look at them and smile because I'd smile if I saw you; it's up to you how you use them, but these creatures are sure to put a smile on your face.
It's also a nice feeling to 'belong'. If you join the Spriggledop adventure gang, you'll be one of us! And we except everyone. You'll always be part of a club; and that's a positive vibe if ever I knew one!
The inhabitants of Netherknowle love adventure! They love it even more when they have company. Why don't you join them and see what fun you have? Write/draw/paint/sing about your stories and share them with me. I love seeing your creativity and encourging imagination is part of my day job.
These designs are from the depths of my imagination and are all cast from my original sculpts.
All items are handsculpted, hand drawn and hand painted in the UK by myself. I have a wonderful collection of friends who are helping me produce these items, ready for the rewards. Evie Barker Photography took a set for a photo shoot, Andrew Marsh and Onorio D'Eporio put together the video for me, Evan of The Toy Chronicle is helping me with the casting, Mark Treharne is aiding me with the laser cutting and Fingerprint are printing the maps and header cards from my designs. I will be single handedly painting and packaging each set.
The temporary transfer tattoos are drawn by me and coloured by the wonderful children in my life. These will be bright and colourful and express that gorgeous freedom that only children see when they look at the world.
A LOT of love has gone in to each and every one and I thank you so much for making this a reality and for joining the Netherknowle Adventuring Club!
All items will be shipped first class, signed for, to UK destinations or standard international air mail to anywhere outside the UK. Proof of postage will be retained for all products sent.
Risks and challenges
Upon succesful funding on this project, all items will be hand cast and painted in the UK. Once these are completed, they will begin posting out to all of you wonderful backers. We are hoping that by keeping everything UK based, it will mean less waiting time for you.
Membership numbers on cards will go in order of purchasing your reward.
If the project sadly does not reach it's goal, then we won't be able to make the adventuring creatures.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
