Comic Art and Print Media Project
Project: Overlord Graphic Novel
Client: Personal Project
Time Frame: Two years
Overlord is a graphic novel project I created and worked on between December 2016 and December 2018. The finished book is over 170 pages long and was written, illustrated and prepared for final printing by me. Alongside this, I managed a small team of two people responsible for the final typography and colour work of the project.
In September 2018, Overlord launched on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and was fully funded within 3 hours. The Kickstarter campaign closed on October 20th at over 800% funded and shipped to over 260 backers worldwide in December of that year.
This project was created using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. Throughout production, I also worked to specific print guidelines requiring knowledge of bleeds, page layouts and colour pre-sets. In addition to working on the graphic novel itself, I worked to promote and encourage interest in the project and the subsequent Kickstarter campaign through social media platforms.
