Justin Guenet – The Blu Book of Ideas [Kickstarter]

One of our closest friends Justin Guenet has recently been in the midst of creating a new illustration book, which is a 34 page spectacular over the course of 2014 and 2015; 8 months to draw in total. He’s now looking for financial support via his KICKSTARTER PAGE to get done and into your hands.

Here’s what he had to say about the book and peep the video below:

“This is possibly my most intense work ever. It’s a complete break away from my previous sci-fi comics.

Essentially, it’s an abstract comic book LOADED with characters, thoughts and ideas ranging from the mundane to the disturbing. It’s silly like Monty Python and serious like an Edgar Allan Poe poem. It’s full of facts, fiction, sarcasm and off-the-wall musings that I’ve collected while at my job in a call centre, reading the news, feeling the burn of day to day life. It’s FULL of references to pop/cartoon culture, witty observations, global concerns and human ramblings we all usually keep to ourselves or at least, to within our closest circle.

This book is illustrated using the purest form of my style and has been left as unfiltered as possible as to allow for maximum flavour with minimal poisoning.”

MADSTEEZ – a short film narrative

Jamie Heinrich and Zac Hug are looking to make a short film staring Mark Paul Deren (aka Madsteez). He is blind in one eye. The premise? When his eye doctor experimentally restores vision to his blind left eye, an artist is only able to create incomplete paintings. What follows is a story about a man who sees colors, shapes, and people differently than he did before. Before, during, and after the time we make the short, Madsteez will be painting a mural that plays a central role in the story. The size of the mural will be up to you. When you pledge you will be building 1 20×20″ portion of the mural, which you own. It will be a minimum of 250 20×20″ sections up to a maximum of 1000 20×20″ sections. That’s roughly 167 x 167 feet! We’ll display it at the premiere and then: Madsteez will take it apart, number each one, sign them, and ship you one of them on mounted canvas. Read more/support HERE & more images after the click.
