A Kickstarter campaign for a book of comic artwork from the collection of Big O Publishing that includes the work by “Yellow Submarine” artist Heiez Edelman has raised 25 percent of its goal with 17 days to go, Michael Fishel, one of the artists, said Oct. 24.
“Big Vision Publishing has launched a campaign to raise $24,000 to publish a collection of 60s and 70s artists work. The funds will be used to pay for the printing and mailing of the full-color coffee-table book as well as a reward catalog and companion DVD,” he said.
Fishel, one of Big 'O' Poster’s artists, says he's hopeful that fans of artist Heinz Edelman of "Yellow Submarine" and others, including Roger Dean, Rodney Matthews, H.R. Giger, Jim Burns, Martin Sharp and more, will help it reach its goal. The campaign runs until Nov. 8.
Fishel says the Big O company began in the '60s and published up until 1980. Their collection included posters, calendars, art cards and books. He has been working with Nigel Suckling, himself a Big O artist, on the writing and layout of the book, the majority of which is complete. The finished book will be an 8.5 x 11 inch hard cover full-color glossy book featuring the artwork and personal stories of the artists and the history of Big O Publishing.
The funds raised will be used to print and ship the book along with the rewards offered to those that pledge, including original Big O art cards signed by the artist, original sketches, a calendar, DVD and more.
