I didn’t know Kickstarter had a blog. Did you? I’m sure tons of people read it. So this Josh Bayer interview is pretty good exposure.
Currently, his Kickstarter campaign for the next issue of Suspect Device has six days to go. Josh is only halfway to his goal. You should help him out.
Josh Bayer is kickstarting his fourth issue of the Suspect Device anthology. Suspect Device is a concept loosely based on Five-Card Nancy. The challenge is to incorporate two panels of existing comics into a new strip. You paste one panel at the beginning, one at the end, and draw what happens in-between. The source material is usually from classic comic strips like Nancy and Popeye, or newer strips like Garfield. Suspect Device #4 will also include material from the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia. Should be fun!
Even if you’re not a fan of Kickstarter, this project is worth a gander. A low pledge of $13 (which is in the neighborhood of retail + shipping) gets you the book AND an ink-wash drawing by Josh Bayer. This tells me one thing, and this is already pretty obvious: Josh can crank out an ink-wash drawing with ease and speed.
