I love the DIY production ethic that Kickstarter fosters. I’ve produced, participated in, and supported a number of Kickstarter based endeavors, and I love that something like this exists. The website allows ordinary people to contribute funding (a little or a lot) to projects that artists and other entrepreneurs want to produce.
I am excited to be a part of Geek Love, a fun anthology of adult erotica with a “nerdy” theme. My illustration “An Evening At Home” will be included, and possibly some additional illustrations. A small sneak preview of my illustration is below.
(Please note that this is an adult anthology. Although there is no explicit content on the Kickstarter page, some of the words and pictures there are a little naughty. You’ve been warned!)
The Kickstarter campaign will allow the hard copy of the book to be printed, and will also allow all contributing writers and illustrators to be paid for their work.
The project is being spearheaded by author and editor Shanna Germain. From the Kickstarter page:
“Geek Love. It’s nerdy, wordy and a little bit dirty. It’s 200 pages of geek-themed erotic stories, accompanied by full-color art and comics, all from some of the finest authors and artists in the industry.
Think of it as the comma sutra. As full-frontal nerdity at its finest. As the bestiary of geek sexuality, proving once and for all that there’s nothing hotter than geeks in their natural habitats.
Geek Love isn’t just smart and sexy. It’s also sex-, gender- and geek-positive. The stories and art in the collection showcase and support a broad spectrum of geeks, genders, body types, classes, races, abilities and sexualities…”
