I don’t have time to report on every Kickstarter I watch, follow or root for. There just isn’t enough time in the day for that. But, I would like to congratulate a few People/Projects for their successful Kickstarter campaigns.

Little Black Book

First, is the art book Little Black Book, by artist Steven Russell Black. Black exceeded his goal of $6,000 and raised $8,078 from 140 backers. Congrats Steven..and ART THE WORLD!

Black’s art has a mesmerizing, surreal and hauntingly beautiful old school look to it. There is something wonderful about the texture and imperfection of the pencil work. Gives the pieces character, movement, and life.

Patriot-1

Second, is the graphic novel Patriot-1, by Kevin Powers. Powers and Co. made their $10,000 goal ($10,168) which I’m sure will make the 130 backers pleased!

How does Powers explain Patriot-1?

“A 176-page, realistic military and spy action thriller… mix Captain America & Jack Bauer in a Tom Clancy world and you get Patriot-1!”

Sidekicks

Last, is a 3 issue comic series I really love, it’s called Sidekicks. This series written by Russell Brettholtz, with art by Miguel Mendonça, “follows the lives of five super-hero sidekicks as they get mistreated by their respective heroes and ignored by society at large.”

Brettholtz crushed his $3000 goal, racking up $7,647 and 343 backers! Way to go Russell!

This is a simple, but fantastic premise. I look forward to seeing the end product, and what’s next for Brettholtz!

As always kids, Art the World!
