In a world where the body can be replaced with cybernetics, what does it mean to be human?

Thanks for everyone supporting in helping to fund the Transhuman Kickstarter. We reached over AU$10,000 and over 350+ backers! All the stretch rewards were unlocked in this campaign and additional commissions have started. I am so appreciative of everyone who pledged and helped spread the word about it.

If you missed the Kickstarter, the IndieGoGo is now LIVE! If you like original artwork, there’s some amazing pieces available done by Sebastian Navas.

In a world where the body can be replaced with cybernetics, what does it mean to be human?

The Kickstarter for Transhuman has now been bubbling away with 10 days to go. Thank you so much for all your support. Let’s keep getting the word around and see how far it can go! There’s 2 amazing covers that you can choose from and if you can’t decide? Grab both!

If we break through our backer stretch goal or funding stretch goal, I will be adding a 3 page prologue to the story with amazing artwork by Sebastian Navas and coloured by Kevin Anthony De Castro. Sebastian has provided some cool layouts to show you what’s coming if we make it!

Transhuman – Prelaunch – Colours!

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. This will allow me to get the next volume of Word Smith out much quicker! I know this is a difficult time with COVID-19 but any support is much appreciated.
