Chris Walker is an illustrator and an ex-designer.
Together with Matt Longstaff he is an author of a (very, very dark) book, which I can only call a ‘death comic’. Due to the fact that no publisher was willing to release them (luckily), they managed to do it through The Kickstarter—a platform helping to fund creative projects.
Chris came to talk to us about the way they did it, introducing new ways of finding funding for our own projects.
Here are the most important points regarding this platform:
Here are some of the images from the books. The first one makes me a bit worried, I hope that it won’t give any kids ideas about how to treat their siblings.
The other one is even darker, but at least it stays focused on adults.
Personally I think that their illustrations are great, but hope that the books will stay in the right hands.
