Bedded & Jess: A Kickstarter Project!

 

I'd like to bring your attention to a great Kickstarter project I'm involved in. 

 For the past couple of years, I've been inking a comic book called "Bedded & Jess" by artist Nick Woll.  Nick is autistic and has some difficulty communicating, but has some decent chops as an artist.  I find his work has a great energy and stylistic elements that remind me of some of the classic Disney artists such as Carl Barks and Floyd Gotfriedson.  He's especially good at packing a page with lots of frenetic detail and unusual characters, and has a talent for being creative with panel borders.

 With help from his brother, Nick has put together a series of adventures starring his creations, the titular "Bedded & Jess".  Simply put, it's a continuing story of their characters getting into one unusual situation after another and meeting a host of strange characters along the way.

They've got a lot of work done (over 300 pages so far!), but to get this thing off the ground, they're going to need a bunch of support, so they're running a Kickstarter campaign to get the first 8 issues published.

To help support their project, I'm donating an orignal watercolor painting based on one of Nick's drawings for someone generous enough to buy in at the $350 level.  Even at the basic levels they've got some fun rewards that I'm sure comics fans will enjoy, and at the top levels there's some truly amazing stuff.

Do me a favor and check out their campaign, even if it's only to see all the cool art they've got posted.  Be sure to watch the "About the artist..." video featuring Nick himself.

 This is a campaign for a worthwhile cause, but it's also a fun book that I've really enjoyed working on, so please support them if you can!
