Cataclysm art book via Kickstarter funding


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.

Creative Pet Project Art Book fundraising campaign


Over the past two years a collaboration of 111 artists and illustrators from around the world has come together, to form the Creative Pet Project. Their intent is to create a unique and beautiful book. But a book with a difference. The aim of the book would be to raise fund to donate to animal charities. And for this reason the criteria of inclusion in the book was that they had companion animal and at the same time included animals in their artwork. The book is now ready, and ready to print. This saturday sees the launch of the funding campaign at Indiegogo (follow link in news thread), where the project feels confident in getting the money to make the book, as well as continue this project to further volumes.

The charities concerned in the book are planned at three per volume. The first volume has included PETA, IFAW and Born Free USA as the recipients of the money collected from sales. These charities are doing invaluable work for animals, the environment and education and deserve the support from us all. The talent in the book is endless. Many a well-known name in the areas of pop surrealism, lowbrow art, illustration and children’s book illustration have come together, because their goal and motive is the same; to help animals. To name a few, the project has world famous illustrator and painter Anita Kunz, world famous illustrator Yuko Shimizu, Ricardo Martinez Ortego, Heiidi Tailleferr, Tara McPherson, Martin Wittfooth, award winning illustrator, Jackie Morris, Chet Zar, Dilka Bear, John Brophy, Ana Bagayan, Chris Brett, Sas Christian, Brian Kesinger (of Teagirl fame) and Brandt Peters/Kathie Olivas participating.

For more information, and to pledge some money to make this project work, or to pre-order a copy of the soft back or hardback versions please visit the campaign site at the link provided. We have many perks/rewards to help you decide in funding the project, as well as our gratitude. For the cost of a cup of coffee, you could help make a difference.

As the name maybe suggests, the “Illuskate” table is the coming together of illustration and skateboarding in a unique limited edition piece of art-furniture.

3D Designer Stuart Melrose has collaborated with four up & coming artists to produce this unique table based on skateboard production technology of bent maple and laminated graphics. The artists Droog79, Kev Munday, DirtyThirty and Burn 353 have each produced a range of designs for the tables which will be available in two sizes and a limited edition of just 300 each.

The prototypes and first batch have already been made and sold and now we are using Kickstarter to crowd-fund the production of a larger second batch of both size tables.

You can back the project for as little as one pound and ypu start getting rewards from just 2 quid. These include some brilliant artist paper toys, a limited edition collaboration print, exclusive t-shirts and of course the beautiful tables themselves.

Please help out this grass-roots, international collaboration project!
