'House Party' original art work reward spotlight

Hey guys,
I thought I would do a little spotlight on one of the rewards on my Kickstarter project...

SO! LISTEN UP! For just £55 you could own an actual piece of original, signed artwork from the 'House Party' graphic novel. Each page is on A3 bristol board paper and is completed with blue col-erase pencil and black ink. Obviously as these are original pages, they are very limited, so snatch 'em up while you can :)




BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!

Also for your £55 you'll get a physical copy of 'House Party' that has been signed and sketched in, a thank you in the book, a PDF copy of the book, AND a physical copy of Rachael's mini comic 'I Am Fire', which made it into Forbidden Planet International's 'Best of 2013' last year :)

Oh! AND a limited edition, Kickstarter-exclusive, hand-numbered bookplate...that looks something like this:



Please take a look at the Kickstarter project to see all the rewards - they range from £3 - £200 so there's bound to be something for you, YES YOU!

Thanks loads guys,

House Party - Kickstarter update

Hey guys!

So the Kickstarter has gone stupidly well!
We've reached all of our Stretchgoals! So the book will now include ten pages of guest art, have a UV spot varnished cover, and come with a Kickstarter-exclusive bookplate (the bookplate is only if you pre-order through the Kickstarter project).

Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged so far - it's gone better than I ever imagined! I'm really trying to use the extra money to make the book the best it can be.

In other news, today I designed the Helveticas poster which you can get with 'The Helveticas Fan Club Bundle' reward (£20), or 'The Helveticas Mega Fan Club Bundle' reward (£35). So if you've gone for one of those rewards, or are thinking of doing so, you can see a little more of what you'll be getting :)


There's only 11 days left for you to preorder through the Kickstarter project, so get on it! :D

Big loves to you all!

HOUSE PARTY IS FUNDED!!! (but wait there's more...)

"HOUSE PARTY" KICKSTARTER UPDATE:

Holy moly! You guys have been AMAZING! We reached our target amount in just 4 days - thank you so much to everyone who has backed the project so far. The comic is definitely going to be printed! YAAAY!


PLEASE keep those pledges coming in though, people - as we plan to use the remaining days of the Kickstarter project to make the comic EVEN MORE AWESOME with some WICKED STRETCHGOALS!


We're looking into adding pages, producing extra goodies and making the finished product even more beautiful. Watch this space for details coming very soon, and pre-order now to make sure you don't miss out :)

Also, if you're a little on the fence about whether or not to back the project, 'House Party' has been getting some lovely features on other comics websites if you'd like a second opinion:


Thanks all, BIG LOVES,
