Cartoonist Mike Kunkel Starts Kickstarter Fundraiser for His Squiggle Project

Squiggles! Cartoonist Mike Kunkel sets out to do a fun and new Art Book collecting his imaginative images that start with a single line.


Thousand Oaks, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2014 -- For over 20 years, Mike Kunkel has been working as a cartoonist telling stories and creating characters for all-ages audiences. Mike has animated characters for animation features, designed cartoon kids and creatures, and written/drawn stories in films and books. He has also worked on Feature Films for Disney, Warner Bros, Sony, and Paramount Studios, and TV Shows for Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Disney.

The Squiggle Project began for Mike as an opportunity to create artwork with his kids. They would draw a line and start the creativity flowing, then Mike would create an image based on that little squiggle. The drawings became more and more involved and Mike loved the visual journey so much, that soon, he found himself drawing from his own squiggles. “Each one was turning into a one-of-a-kind exploration into imagination,” says Mike. “It has been so much fun, that now I want to share this way of being creative, and I hope this new book inspires people to draw and create from their own imagination.”

The book is being prepared for press. The plan is to send it off for printing, get it printed, delivered back and then mail it out to all supporters by July/August of 2014. This fundraiser’s goal is $18,500 to cover all of the printing and production costs for the book.

This project will only be funded if at least $18,500 is pledged by Friday Jan 31, 1:11pm EST.
