…and all Beginnings, Have a STORY.
This project is one of the most ambitious of mine. Many of you who read The Signal mostly know my work on The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica series of illustrated novels. But what not as many people know is that those books were not my first great fantastic fiction project. That project was a dark-and-stormy-night comic book series I called StarChild.
It has been in and out of print in a number of formats, but now, we’ve launched a Kickstarter project to collect EVERYTHING I’ve ever written and drawn that’s associated with StarChild into one extraordinary, beautiful book.
For those of you who like reading the stories I write, and especially those of you who enjoy my illustrations, just think of this as more than FIVE HUNDRED PAGES of an illustrated fantasy by the creator of HERE, THERE BE DRAGONS.
For those of you who like my nonfiction such as DRAWING OUT THE DRAGONS, there is an additional TWO HUNDRED PAGES of development art, notes, sketches, commentaries, and essays.
There is something here for everyone — including an exclusive preview of the upcoming FOOL’S HOLLOW novels (starting in 2014 from Shadow Mountain publishing) which are to me the ideal fairy tales that the StarChild graphic novels were based on — I just created those first. But make no mistake: these are the stories and art closest to my heart. Please, go take a look, choose from among some wonderful backer rewards, and help me bring this extraordinary, beautiful book into the universe.
