Monsterwood OGN Kickstarter Campaign


Monsterwood was conceived by Jason Rosen, and further developed by two-time Emmy winner, Louise Gikow (Disney, Jim Henson Productions). The graphic novel is illustrated by Harvey award-winning fantasy artist Steve Ellis (The Only Living Boy, Dungeons & Dragons).

“My experience with creating artwork for Monsterwoood is a joy. I believe that Jason has a really unique and fun project on his hands, which is why I’ve devoted so much time making the world a reality. I’m finding myself able to take all the painting and creature work I’ve done over the years in games, like Dungeons and Dragons and World of Warcraft, and mix in the storytelling skills I developed working in comics. It’s a wonderful adventure,” notes Ellis.

Beyond the completed graphic novel, the campaign offers other exclusives and limited edition rewards including maquettes busts, glicees of pre-production concept paintings, and hand drawn illustrations by Steve Ellis.
