FRAZETTA: WORLDS Silkscreen Art Prints!
Frank Frazetta is a name that all fantasy and comic artists know and revere. One of the founding fathers of fantasy art, the reach of his affect on popular culture cannot be underestimated. From movie posters, to album covers, to animated film- even to video game design, there is not an area of entertainment that hasn't felt his influence.
The goal of this Kickstarter project is to present four of Frazetta's most iconic, classic paintings into a medium they've never been adapted to- Collectable limited edition silkscreen art prints!
The silkscreen printing process (Serigraphy) gives rich, deep, and vibrant colors that just are not available through any other process. Each completed print is a unique art-object, produced through a labor intensive method where each hand-mixed color is laid down individually until the full image is revealed.
The prints themselves will each be produced in a single hand-numbered limited edition. Edition size of the prints will be determined by the number of pledges for each reward. Each of the four prints will have different total edition sizes. Each print will measure 24x36" and will be hand-embossed with our exclusive logo to ensure authenticity!
"Death Dealer 1"- 24x36 inches.
"Barbarian" - 24x36 inches.
"Silver Warrior" - 24x36 inches.
"The Huns"- Exclusive to Set-Level pledges- will measure 18x24
Note- all prints are standard frame sizes for easy framing.
All paintings will be printed on high-quality archival museum quality cotton-rag paper for a very lush presentation and feel.
Backers can choose from several packages, including individual prints, variant sets, and a Platinum Printer's Proof Package limited to an edition of 20, that includes everything! Note- we will be using Backerkit to fill orders, so you will be able to add to your pledges upon completion of the campaign. (Extra t-shirts, posters, etc)

THE PROJECT TEAM
We are committed to ensuring that these paintings are presented in the best possible way, and we've brought in a murderer's row of talent to help us make it a reality!
Nakatomi has brought on artist Jon Smith, who has perfected the method of adapting full paintings to the silkscreen medium, to bring these pieces to life. He's done work for artists as legendary as Drew Struzan and James Jean. Jon lives here in Austin, and we are working closely with him on the file prep.
The printing of these art prints will be done by Lady Lazarus in Houston. Like many of us, they were inspired to begin a career in the arts by Frazetta's paintings, and the opportunity to get to work on the printing of such iconic images is a dream job for them.
Our $12,000 goal is to pay for the labor, materials and printing to cover the production of an edition of all four Screenprints, as well as shipping them to backers, as well as all assorted stretch goals we hope to be able to reveal!
The Frazetta Family, headed by Frank Jr., maintains the Frazetta Museum in East Stroudsburg, PA and we are proud to have partnered with them on this Kickstarter project to help them in their goal to preserve Frazetta's legacy for generations to come! EVERY SINGLE PLEDGE you make to this project means more funds to go to the preservation of Frazetta's artwork, and keeps the original paintings up for public view in the museum, and not in the hands of private collectors. As Indiana Jones always said- 'IT BELONGS IN A MUSEUM!'- Let's help keep it that way!
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges for this project are quite low. Nakatomi Print Labs is overseeing every aspect of production, and we have a full-time staff who will be doing the printing of several of the rewards, packing, and shipping of all rewards. Nakatomi may be small, but we have been in business for 8 years, and have safely shipped tens of thousands of orders to customers all over the globe!
We've run several successful Kickstarter projects not just for ourselves, but for other artists on their accounts as well!
The backer rewards are already designed, and we have our entire supply-chain worked out.
Barring any unforeseen hiccups, we should be well within any of our reward delivery dates. We believe Kickstarter is the ideal place to take this project to make sure that everyone who wants to get on board CAN do so.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
