Spirits of Glasgow
A picture book by Jo Whitby
Featuring a short story by Chris McQueer
People might make Glasgow but the spirits, they hold the city together like an invisible glue... well, some of them do, others just idly hang about here and there lusting over bags of cheesy chips and haunting new builds for a laugh.
Having been offered an artists table at the forthcoming Glasgow Comic Con in June I wanted to create a special wee book in time for the convention while also raising a few funds so I can make sure my table is fully stocked. The offer of a table was unexpected which is why I'm going full throttle with this crowdfund – time is of the essence!
About the book:
I will create 6 illustrations like the one featured above (a work in progress but gives you a good idea) and present them in an A5 landscape softcover book! To accompany the images will be a short story about the spirits penned by Chris McQueer (author of the fantastic ‘Hings’ & ‘HWFG’).
What I need to raise:
3rd STRETCH GOAL: Can we make it to £700? Sure we can. As well as an A5 print every backer will get a set of stickers
REACHED! 2nd STRETCH GOAL: Help me reach £650 and ALL backers will receive an A5 print!
REACHED! 1st STRETCH GOAL: It didn’t take very long to hit the initial target of £400! Thank you so much! I think it would be brilliant to upgrade the print quality of the book so would love to see if we can stretch to £500. This would enable me to get a much nicer cover quality and higher grade paper inside.
need to raise enough funds to cover the production of the books and
any rewards as well as shipping costs. Any additional funds raised
will go towards helping me print greeting cards and other merch for
my table at comic con.
I have set the goal to £400 which will cover all the above costs and leave me with a few extra coins to make my table look fab.
Extra rewards include art prints, postcards and a limited edition tote bag! ALL REWARDS INCLUDE A PHYSICAL COPY OF THE BOOK!
