My next Kickstarter campaign — tentatively scheduled for January or February of 2016 — is going to feature glow-in-the-dark items all centering on a ghost theme.
I’ve been doing a lot of research on items for this campaign (glow-in-the-dark items are tricky to source) and am currently working on finalizing the art for not one but two separate patch designs, and all the other related items which will be revealed in due time.
Subscribers to my email newsletter get first look at upcoming campaign artwork, as well as the heads up on exclusive day one Kickstarter rewards. I’m also working plans for subscriber-only patch campaigns. As well as free art, free downloads, the best coupon codes for my Etsy shop, and more. Subscribe now!
“Cryptid Command“, my latest embroidered patch set is now live on Kickstarter until October 31, 2015. The patches feature Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and Aliens/UFOs all with a fun military-themed look.
The main funding goal was reached in under 6 hours on launch day, and the campaign has since unlocked the first of many stretch goals, which include additional patches, stickers, magnets, PVC emblems and more.
Campaign pledges are funneled back into the campaign reward merchandise to offer backers more and more merchandise the higher the campaign funding gets. Pledge now and help unlock more stretch goals and get more free items with your reward!
The “Sasquatch Brigade” Membership Kit completes the initial hairy hominid trilogy, alongside the Bigfoot Patrol and Yeti Squad.
$5 gets you an embroidered patch, shipped anywhere in the U.S. and $20 gets you the full membership kit, a sketch card original art drawing, along with all the stretch goal reward items, which are included for free as we continue to meet funding goals.
Stretch goal items include additional embroidered patches, stickers, window clings, and more.
New to this campaign is the option to get your patch with Velcro backing, perfect for military Morale Patches.
This wild Frankenstein’s Monster-inspired hang card packaging design and illustration was created for a manufacturer and retailer of bicycle locks, in particular the U-locks that are pretty popular out there. The cross-bar that connects the open ends of the “U” is to be placed in the open mouth of the monster.
As you can see from the rough sketches below, the final piece stayed pretty true to my initial vision for the illustration.
Allowances had to me made for the hang-hole grommet up top, and I had to finalize some custom lettering for a logo and include room for product details as well.
The client was beyond pleased with the final results and we are currently discussing the followup packaging illustrations and designs featuring new monsters (hint: a Cyclops is planned next!).
