Hello! 
An additional incentive as been created at the request and suggestion of friends and followers on tumblr. Those of you who enjoy watching artists stream or making personal requests should enjoy this option.
For $500….”You’ll receive the bookmark, button, sticker, charm and print sets as well as a screen printed vertebrae t-shirt, a copy of the book with your name included in the thank you section of the book. In addition to all this you’ll receive some one-on-one livestream time with artists Ashley Almeida and Kate McElroy. During this time you can invite friends to watch with you as the artists stream and take drawing requests from you (the backer) for 2 hours. [ Note: The subject matter & maturity of requests are dependent on the artists’ comfort level. ]”
I’d also like to add that we’ve created a facebook page and twitter should you like to follow/like either of those for updates on Vertebrae.

Hello everyone.
Just a casual reminder that our backscatter has launched. We’re at $1,090 of our $12,000 goal. That’s 9% of our goal! 
I’d also like to announce that the first 100 backers to pledge $45+ will receive a custom guro caricature of themselves with the book! So if you weren’t already super interested in an amazing collection of horrific, gurotastic illustrations and comics that our talented artists poured their hearts and souls into then here’s a little more incentive. So pledge quick and make the first hundred so you may have your very own, personally drawn portrait of you (or a friend) experiencing a horror of your choice—or should you choose to be surprised, a horror or affliction chosen by the artist!
When the goal is made we’ll need a reference of the person who’ll be drawn for the portrait. See the images above for examples of the sketch that’ll be done.
As of now 13 of the 100 slots are already filled.
Even if you can’t pledge, sharing the project is JUST as important and JUST as appreciated.
- Ash & Kate

HELLO EVERYONE. GUESS WHAT. 

Our kickstarter has launched.

We’ve got some killer artwork, created by killer artists whose work will thrill (but not kill) you. We’ve got a goal of $12,000. 

The book itself not only features dozens of illustrations, but several comic shorts by our talented artists—as well as a personal bio pages with illustrated portraits! In total there are 148 pages of art work. The illustrations will all be printed in color on a coated, heavy weight matte paper. The book will be 8.5 x 11 and perfect bound with a gloss varnished soft cover. All this from 32 amazing artists.

So please check out our project. So please check out our project. If you like gore, horror, the weird or the unusual, we would be grateful for your support!

We have until Sat, Jun 6 2014 1:54 AM EDT to make our goal.

Support our project here: Kickstarter

How about an art post? I’m sans a scanner, so I took the pictures on my phone. They were made for a friend’s Creature Feature show a few months ago.

Earthbound fan art I doodled on Nintendo Miiverse. (Sorry about the repeat post of that Ness. He goes with the others! haha) Click on them for better quality. Tumblr hates these.

Hopefully I’ll be set up soon to get posting regular work again. : X

HEY GUYS IMPORTANT NOTICE
I wasn’t going to post until tomorrow, but decided today might be best. As of now we have nineteen accepted artists out of the 25.
If you want to apply, send your applications in asap so you have a chance. Kate and I will wait for another big chunk of applications before selecting the final six.
We have been queuing accepted artist announcement posts to be once a day. We have yet to receive some responses, but it’s only been a day. But please check your email if you’ve applied! If you applied and didn’t get an email yet, that means we’ve cut you off to be apart of the second batch of applications (so no worries).
We’re also working out a release form for artists under 18, since one or two applied.
- Ash

Wanted to add the link to the application guidelines, etc. in case anyone hadn’t seen it. We’re looking forward to seeing more of your work!!
- Kate

More thoughts as I’m getting more excited for the anthology: But man this is going to be a good excuse to encourage myself to publicly make more horrible art. <3

Also, I’ll probably be getting back on the horse with my work soon. I haven’t had a lot of free time, and have been pretty down about my work, but things are starting to clear up, so I’ll find a way to share what I’ve been doing soon!
