Well, our kickstarter has only about a week left to go, so I’m getting on the track here and doing some promoting.
Or campaign is raising money to self-publish a 200 page art book, Thrilling Visions 2 – PANDEMONIUM BLVD., that covers all the neat, lost stuff that fell through the cracks here over the last 30 years. There’s unused flaming Carrot covers and drawings, all my weird FAR SIDE like cartoons, sketches, artwork, unpublished projects and even the first Flaming Carrot drawing ever. There’s also a lot of short little one and two page reminiscences, anecdotes, and ruminations on things like creativity, surrealism and art.
Sorry, no drones though.
Here’s a quick-link to our project on kickstarter.
Here’s a preview of my personal pick of the 18 oddest, strangest and most surreal drawings in the book.
Now the way kickstarter works is that we put up a project – offer incentives (or things you get when you pledge when you give money to the cause) – you pledge – and when the campaign is over, we send you all the great things that we put on the block and your credit card or account is billed but kickstarter and Amazon, who take 10% off the top.
This gives us a chance to sell a lot of cool, out of print, Flaming Carrot collectables for a good discount but still more than what we would get by going through distributors where we lose 60 or 70%.
So here’s a link to a video rendition of the The 18 oddest, wildest, most disturbing drawing from Bob Burden's new artbook, narrated by me!
