“Sasquatch Brigade”, the third artist merchandise set in the paranormal hairy ape-man creature series by George Coghill, launched on Kickstarter this week and surpassed the funding goal in under 24 hours. “Sasquatch Brigade” joins the previous membership kit merchandise sets, “Bigfoot Patrol” and “Yeti Squad”, each of which contains an embroidered patch, membership card and a button/pin packaged with header cards.

The “Sasquatch Brigade” Kickstarter campaign offers rewards which include original artwork by the artist, including sketch cards and original pencil drawings. The campaign also offers stretch goals with additional Sasquatch-themed artist merchandise including stickers, window clings and additional embroidered patches.

The Kickstarter campaign runs until June 12, 2015.

An open call is made for contributions that broaden the understanding of how illustration is changing in the classroom and in practice. Unusual avenues of practice and enquiry are welcome, including both theory and practice-based researchers, academics, illustrators, painters and artists.
