Yesterday one of my favourite local graphic designers and illustrators Kingsley Nebechi launched his ‘Tribe Hunters’ Kickstarter campaign. Kingsley is looking to raise enough money to print an art book featuring characters in environments from a post apocalyptic world.
Kingsley describes the background to the book, “it is set in the aftermath of the final war, civilization has collapsed. Nature has begun to reclaim the environment forcing humans to adjust to cities in ruins and return to the jungles and woodlands. Amongst the survivors are the Tribe Hunters, a community of people who combine their varied skills to help each other overcome the challenges of the extreme conditions.”
If you are not aware of what Kickstarter is, it is a global crowdfunding platform which launched in 2009. The aim of a Kickstarter campaign is to raise money for a project which could be anything from a film, games, music, art, design and technology. The project creators choose a deadline and a minimum funding goal. If the goal is not met by the deadline, no funds are collected.
