A new form of patronage
I’ve had an image in my head ever since I’ve thought about writing “Bible Stories”, based on a very famous drawing of Gustave Doré entitles “Jacob Wrestles with the Angel”. I’ve wanted to do my own subversive version, so this weekend I put pencil to paper to produce a rough sketch. It was then that I was hit with a flash of inspiration: why not offer some potential patrons the opportunity to be featured in the illustrations i’m preparing for the book? For a few hundred dollars, these new patrons would literally have their faces in the book.
In any case, the point is this: my goal is to secure 10k in pre-sales by the first of June, and I will be offering special patron prices for those with some loose cash and a strong desire to see this project fulfilled. It’ll also be an opportunity to be “immortalized” in my book, knowing that you played an integral role in making it happen.
I’m working frantically to finish the sample book cover and set up the “kickstarter” account (a more international version with the same idea) by the begining of March. After that, it’ll be pushing to get these pre-sales to catch fire. If all works well, TGA will be back on track!
