About

My name is Doug TenNapel and I'm the original creator of Earthworm Jim, The Neverhood and Catscratch: www.imdb.com/name/nm0855066/. Players ask me if there is any original art available from these stories, and sadly, most of the art has been sold or lost. But this is how I intend to remedy that: provide an opportunity for fans to get original, one of a kind works of art by the creator of the projects they've come to love.

Go back to your childhood and own an original tiny ink and watercolor works of your favorite memories! Or donate to request any character or painting you desire. I'm here to serve. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I have A LOT of fun making works of art!

STRETCH GOAL #1 at $13,000! GOAL REACHED! I will create a reward tier for a donation of $12.00 that includes a PDF of every scanned watercolor and ink I do for this project. Anyways, if we reach this stretch goal I'll give EVERY DONOR a copy of this PDF. Yes, you can print your own images from it (no, you can't sell them!).

STRETCH GOAL #2 at $14,000! GOAL REACHED! I'm opening up "drawing-inking-painting school" where I'll record videos that you can follow to make your own works of art. Don't worry if you can't draw, I'll give you tips on tracing and transferring your favorite works.
Here's one on pencils:

STRETCH GOAL #3 at $15,000! GOAL REACHED! It's a piece of paper. Just a piece of paper. It's the same blank 140 lb. press I use for my illustrations and I'll throw one in with every donor shipment above the $12 tier. You're going to use this, remember you will get some art instruction and I'm dying to see your results!

STRETCH GOAL #4 at $18,000! GOAL REACHED! I will live broadcast the production of at least one of every design as I create them for you! This will be at least 20 live broadcasts. You don't have to like this page to see them, but many of you will catch me actually working on your reward (I'll post them when they're finished in case you don't see them live):   https://www.facebook.com/dougtennapel/

STRETCH GOAL #5 at $20,000! GOAL REACHED! Every donor at the $25 level or higher gets an original Skullmonkey pencil sketch on 2.5" x 3.5" on 140 lb paper! 

STRETCH GOAL #6 at $23,000! GOAL REACHED! I'll make a printed, 5" x 3" postcard of the Blue from Creature Tech original (see painting #21 below) and give one to every donor higher than the $12. You can mail it to a friend, or frame it and display your admiration of insect men.

STRETCH GOAL #7 at $25,000! I'll make a printed, 5" x 3" postcard of Big Robot Bil original (see painting #18 below) and give one to every donor higher than the $50 tier.

Risks and challenges

I don't know exactly how many of these I'll have to paint, but I assume I can get to work and paint these for a late March-April delivery. I've done Kickstarters before and reliability of international shipping was always tough, but I think the small size of art, put into a sturdy, protected envelope should solve a lot of those problems.
