Welcome to our Patreon page! We've joined Patreon to help publicize and fundraise for a new children's book we recently started production on. Follow along through a world of puppets and miniature sets, as a boy and a girl set out on an adventure to touch the sun. This book is a collaborative effort by myself and a small group of artist who all share an interest in this art form. Matthew Pugh and JP Li will be doing most of the illustrations and concept work.



Koji Nagao is the artist behind the puppets.




Other contributing artists include director of photography David Driver, set designers Jose Loyola and Scott Nordlund, gaffer Mike Van Dine, and Troy Corriea on post-production. I will be producing the show and contributing to a lot of the art.



Many pieces of art have been and will be created for the project. The rewards being offered for your support are prints of these art pieces - storyboards, final book illustrations, character and environment concepts, photographs of the finished sets and puppets- as well as original drawings by Matthew. All prints will be signed and printed on high quality paper.





The funds raised will help with all of the production costs- everything from materials and photo shoot expenses, to the final printing. About 13 different sets will be built and photographed, making up the 32-page book. We are hoping to photograph at least half of the book images during an artist residency I have at the de Young Museum in July. If you’re in the San Francisco area this summer, please stop by and say hello! Many of the sets and puppets will be on display in various stages of completion. Museum visitors will be able to see the different processes and techniques that go into each stage of planning, building and photography.

This account will also serve as a blog that will document the process in much more detail than our other social media outlets. And, we have a lot of fun things planned for “Goals” including print giveaways, and guest artist prints that will be available as rewards.

Thank you for checking us out!

Two signed 5x7 prints!
Each month you will receive one 5x7 print of an art piece associated with the book. This print might be from one of the final book illustrations, or from one of the many pieces of concept art created for the book. It will be printed on high quality paper and signed by the artist who created the piece. I'll also be adding an extra print in everyone's envelope that might be from this project or several other projects I've worked on.
