John Williams is leaving behind decades of scoring movies to do comics. Wait...you're saying there's more than one John Williams in the world? Well, there are and one of them is poised to take his concept to Kickstarter to get the funds going for Check Please!, a 9x9 inch, 80-page, full-color hardcover book. The book capitalizes on the concept of drawing various illustrations on restaurant checks.
The book has lined up some of the best and brightest artists across the country to be in this book, like, N8 VanDyke, Matt136, Skinner, Dave Correia, Cody Schibi, Emonic, C.B. Canga, Ken Davis, Super Ugly, Dave Dwonch, JoeMur, Robert Bowen, Brian Canio, Cody Vrosh, Danielle Corsetto, Sam Flores and many more. The simplest way to help is by checking out the Kickstarter and donating some money. Otherwise, just telling people about the project could go a long way towards helping the creators achieve their goal.
Full press release below.
My name is John Williams and I run the Guest Checks blog.
Before becoming a full time artist, I waited tables for 12 years and love the culture of food and restaurants, I just recently started a Kickstarter project and thought you guys might be interested. A few years back I created a blog where my friends would draw whatever they wanted on Guest Checks, or "the checks that waiters write your order on". It was so fun, seeing what they created. The blog got such a great response, we were featured on the Huffington Post, Laughing Squid and a few other Restaurant and Food blogs.
I have always thought of this project as perfect for Kickstarter. We started this project to help us fund the release of Check Please! A 9x9inch, 80 page, full color hardcover book. We have lined up some of the best and brightest artists across the country to be in this book, like, N8 VanDyke, Matt136, Skinner, Dave Correia, Cody Schibi, Emonic, C.B. Canga, Ken Davis, Super Ugly, Dave Dwonch, JoeMur, Robert Bowen, Brian Canio, Cody Vrosh, Danielle Corsetto, Sam Flores and so many more.
I hope you can be a part of this project, whether it's spreading the word through your website and social media, or just telling a friend you think might be into it. These kind of projects need as much word of mouth as possible, cause you never know who this is going to appeal to. Please take some time to check out the KickStarter page, I have attached the link for the Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1711568151/check-please-a-collection-of-art-on-guest-checks) and some images. I appreciate any feedback and comments and whatever help you provide, even if that is sending us some well wishes.
