Tomorrow sees the launch of my Spooky Season Kickstarter. I announced this campaign and it’s story in Wednesday’s blog. I thought it would be nice to introduce the designs to you today.
If the campaign is successful each design will be printed onto 1.5 inch clear recycled acrylic charms and made into earrings. Each pair of earrings will be handmade as I currently do with my existing 1 inch plywood earring designs. The campaign will run for just 14 days so if you are keen to grab a pair at a special price, now is the time! Plus you will get the chance to own some exclusive freebies if the campaign reaches it’s stretch goals too.
The designs are based around the spooky season and things I love. With October in reach I feel even more pumped up than usual to create spooky designs. That’s definitely saying something! These designs are what I think would make perfect halloween earrings as well as able to wear all year long. I have avoided any specifically halloween iconography (i.e Pumpkins) for this reason.
There are five spooky designs in total. It won’t surprise you that spooks feature in every design, but they are all a bit different. Some designs incorporate text into their design too. It’s risky on a small design. However I am confident that the words are a big and bold enough part of the design that they will work fine. There is also a witchy design that is new territory for me. This design is based on my Haunted House piece where I drew a cut through of a haunted house and included spooky paraphernalia in each room. The basement was the witch’s potion room like we see here. The camera design is based on a Beetlejuice themed gif I created. Although it nods to the film this design is more about proving the existence of a spooky afterlife!
The campaign will see each design unlock after a certain target is hit. There will be the chance to gain early bird prices on the first day only as well as he previously mentioned freebies. It doesn’t matter if you pledge before a design you like becomes available as everyone will only be asked to pick their designs from the unlocked ones available after the campaign ends. This is irregardless of what is unlocked at the time of your pledge.
