Cataclysm art book via Kickstarter funding

Re-launch-Advert

On the second attempt, my first art book, Cataclysm, a post-human miniature time capsule from the future, has reached its funding goal on Kickstarter!

It’s still available to back, and I’d love to see just how much it can push past that goal. The £250 I set for this second attempt is a lot lower than the first go, which I aimed for £1000. The first time round, £317 was pledged, and this second go is currently at £259.

I’d love to beat the first attempt, and even push further, towards the original £1000! If you can pledge anything, it’s always greatly appreciated, even just an extra £1 to push the project further over that 100% funded line.

And of course, any sharing you can do helps as well.

Thanks for your support, and for anything you can pledge.
