As I write this we have 6 days left to go on our Kickstarter campaign for the new art book AFTER DARK.. and we are so happy the project has been well received. We’ve passed the final stretch goal—so every book order gets every stretch goal perk we offered—and the project support continues to grow! As we enter our final week on the month-long campaign I want to thank Pat Shand for his invaluable help with our first campaign. Pat has made the experience smooth and trouble free. Pat should be on everybody’s radar, he’s a wonderful writer and I once did a cover for one of his series, Destiny,NY. Check him out.
Fun fact here: The title and cover design were Robyn’s idea. Here it from roughs to final.
Mark Your Calendars: I’m excited to announce Robyn & I will be at Lake Como Comic Art Festivalthis year, May 12-14. The guest list of artists is incredible and I’m really looking forward to it. Beautiful location, beautiful art, beautiful country… it just doesn’t get any better does it? More later when we get closer.
The Terry Moore After Dark… kickstarter campaign launched to great success. We were fully funded in 7 minutes and reached 100K the first day. I was beyond excited about this. It was incredible to watch it all happen live. The first three stretch goals were met, giving the book high quality paper, a ribbon bookmark, and spot gloss on the cover. So now the book is both beautful and extremely well made. I love that.
Our next stretch goal is a gorgeous Frank Cho print of Francine and Katchoo. This is a stunning pen and ink 2-color illusrtation in Frank’s super clean style. We’d love to include this print with every order!
We’re launching our first Kickstarter this week on Wednesday, February 1 for a new art book titled AFTER DARK. It wil be 120 pages of naughty pinups and sexy sketches featuring the main characters from my books Strangers In Paradise, Echo, Motor Girl and Parker Girls. Naturally Katchoo leads the group and she adorns the cover for three different editions: a softcover, a hardcover, and a Limited Edition Hardcover that is available on through this campaign. So when you see three different covers of Katchoo in a chair as the night progresses—green, yellow, red—you’re looking at the covers unique to each edition—softcover, hardcover, Limted hardcover.
This campaign will run the whole of February to March 3. We’re hoping to raise $29k to cover the cost of printing the book(s). If we raise more, it opens tiers of extras and goodies, new merchandise and original art!
There’s still time to sign up for notification when the campaign opens. There’s no comittment with sign-up, it just gives you the chance to be one of the first people to open the page on Wednesday and scope it out. So please sign up and help us spread the word. You’re the only PR person we have and we believe in you. I personally think you should get raise, too. Let’s talk about it after the campaign. 😉
