Word Smith 3 – Kickstarter Prelaunch

Link to the Prelaunch Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1917428739/word-smith-volume-1-2-and-3-fear-and-honour

The Prelaunch Page for Word Smith Volume 1, 2 & 3 is up on Kickstarter. Be sure to click the NOTIFY button so you will know exactly when this Kickstarter goes LIVE. I’ll let everyone know as soon as I have a date locked in. At the moment, we’re powering through the production so we can bring this to story to life as quickly as possible!

The action picks up from the cliffhanger in the previous volume! Our heroes find themselves in the Eastern Nations with a mysterious stranger who has been stalking them. Are Dimitri and Sparky OK? What will happen next?

Transhuman – Prelaunch – Colours!

Sign up for the Transhuman Prelaunch!

The Prelaunch Page for Transhuman is up on IndieGoGo. I’m still in development and I’m aiming to launch the campaign later in 2020. At the moment, I’m working with Sydney creative Chris Pitcairn to find the correct colour theme for the project. Colour will play a subtle but important role in this graphic novel.

Transhuman is very character driven. The protagonist’s life (Rivka) is a mess and she’s barely functioning through the day. It does explore a lot of her pain as well as her steps towards redemption.

Word Smith – Terralympus – Transhuman – NEWS!

So many things are happening here at Sigmate Studio. I thought it would be a good opportunity to use this post to do a quick recap.

Word Smith

I’m still waiting on the original artwork to arrive from Poland. I’ll be able to complete the final reward shipment when they are here. Thanks for your patience! The next volume of Word Smith will be going into full production in July. This will be very exciting if it progresses well as it will allow me to take it for crowdfunding towards the end of 2020. The artist and colourist are both lined up and ready to go.

Terralympus

Volume 2 is in the process of getting put together for printing. The first print run should be in August and rewards to go out around that time. The original sketches are due to arrive in August so they shouldn’t be any delay there. Illustrating for Volume 3 will commence in July! I am doing everything possible to shorten the timeframe for both Terralympus and Word Smith so you don’t have to wait for the next exciting chapter.

Transhuman

Wait there’s still more? A sleeper project I’ve had on the backburner is moving into colouring in July as well! I’ve engaged Sydney colourist, Chris Pitcairn on this one and it will get started on this. I’ve attached a sneak peek on the artwork by illustrator, Allen Sands.

Whew . . all 3 projects (Word Smith, Transhuman and Terralympus) are going into production in July, it’s going to be an absolute crazy period for me. I’ll try my best to keep sharing updates as they happen.

Terralympus 2 – Word Smith News

The Terralympus Indiegogo is finishing up soon! Thanks for everyone’s support to help bring this project to live. There’s just over a day to go so don’t miss out! Production will go full steam ahead in the next few days and I’m hoping to get it ready to print ASAP.

The next Word Smith graphic novel is hopefully going into the production soon. P.R. Dedelis should be starting the pencils on the main story in July and I’m hoping to get it out for crowdfunding later this year. The first arc of Word Smith has been outlined and I’m really excited to be able to slowly share it with you!

Terralympus 2 – IGG Live

The Terralympus Indiegogo is now LIVE! It’s a shorter campaign and as of right now, it has 23 days left. There’s some amazing original art rewards by Von Randal although they are getting snapped up quickly. Be sure to check it out before it’s too late!

A special thanks to everyone who supported this project on Kickstarter. I am overwhelmed by the final result of 397 backers and just over AU$12K raised. It’s so incredible, I’m planning to take the next few days easy to celebrate!

Word Smith – Australia Cultural Fund

I am current fundraising for the next phase of Word Smith on the Australia Cultural Fund (ACF). All donations made in Australia will be tax deductible! The ACF will match every $1 for $1 (up to $4000) for all your support will be much appreciated.

The monies raised from your kind donations will help to get the illustrations done for the next volume of Word Smith and assist with future costs.

Terralympus 2 – LIVE

The Terralympus Kickstarter is now LIVE! Be sure to check it out and watch the video. Thanks to everyone who has already supported this project. It’s been incredible to get your help to bring the next volume of Terralympus to life. With the all uncertainty in the world right now, your backing is very much appreciated.

Terralympus 2 – 29th March 10pm

The Terralympus Kickstarter Pre-Launch is now up and we’re hoping to launch this Sunday 29th March 10pm AEST. Sign up now and be notified as soon as the campaign goes live! Check out the amazing variant cover by artist Sebastian Navas.

There was a lot of thought put into whether this would be the right time to launch a campaign especially with all the uncertainty in the world currently with COVID-19. Unfortunately I don’t think anyone has the answer. With news of vaccine human trials starting in April for the UK and other medical breakthroughs there is a glimmer a hope for the world that things will hopefully get back to normal sooner rather than later. The decision was ultimately made to launch the Kickstarter and I hope you will be able to support and help share the link around.

Word Smith 2 – IGG – Finished

The Word Smith 2 IndieGoGo is now finished! Thanks for all your support and it did much better than I expected. I’m taking a short break over the weekend (it’ll be awesome to just sit back and chill for a couple of days!) but will be back on track next week to continue finishing up the second volume. It’s currently going lettering and dialogue review.
