For the Vertebrae Kickstarter I sketched portraits for the first 100 backers to to back $45+ as a bonus reward. Only 63 backers responded to the survey to receive their sketches with their requests (everyone else received bookmarks, stickers, or prints as replacements depending on their reward tier). Virtually all of them are gore, or body horror themed sketches of the backers though a few made different requests.
They were supposed to be basic bust portraits done with sharpie, but I got pretty into a few of them and so theyâ€™re more elaborate. I had a blast experimenting on different creepy-factors and expression. As a side note, if you havenâ€™t checked out the project the artists, work in the book, and updates for online sales can be found at @vertebraepress!
Iâ€™ll be including a note of portraits posted on this and upcoming posts.
