CONCEPT

 

All my life I’ve loved drawing heads. The structure of the face, human, alien, creature, is fascinating. The planes of the face reveal character and purpose, and reveal one’s very essence. I’ve drawn thousands of heads in my career, and hundreds of them on small 5 inch by 8 inch Bristol, and I’ve collected a bunch of them in these pages.

 

You might be asking yourself, “Headshots? Who cares? Who gives a gosh-darned patootie about a book filled with drawings of heads? And why on earth should I support this nonsense?” I can give you a few reasons, Maybe you like comic art. Maybe you like my comic art in particular. Maybe you find it interesting to look at a different take on famous characters you know and love. Maybe you’re an artist and think this might be a good reference guide to study different facial structures… or maybe you just appreciate the time and hard work that goes into drawing comics and like to be a part of the broader comics community? Or maybe, you just think this is too damn cool.

 

Bottom line, I would really be thankful for your support, no matter your reason.

A HEADSHOT A DAY

Heads Will Roll is filled with heroic visages of superheroes, warriors, gods and goddesses, many characters you will recognize, and some you won’t. Each day of this campaign I’ll be drawing a new head - specifically for this thick, little volume - these new heads will be of the most surprising characters, and most of them I’ll have never drawn before!

 

But I'd like to hear what YOU want, so I'll be putting it to a vote. Every day I'll be posting 2 choices on my social media pages for you to choose from (links below), and the winner gets added to the book and put up for sale in the Add-Ons section. So check back here often, as new reveals and making-of videos will be uploaded daily!

Day 1: Frankenstein's Monster vs. Darth Maul
Day 2: Elric v. Soloman Kane

Day 3: Lion-O (Thundercats) vs. Zandor (Herculoids)

Day 4: The Mandalorian vs. baby Yoda

Day 5: He-Man vs. Omni-Man

STRETCH GOALS

DELIVERY

All of the artwork is done, except the 30 new heads done during the campaign. The book should be completely laid out/print ready, except for these new heads, before launch, and completed right after.

 

So we should be going to print shortly after the end of the campaign, and we estimate the whole process to get everything made, shipped to our fulfillment partner and sent out to all supporters to be about 3 months.

 

So estimated delivery is November 2021 -- and we'll keep you updated all along the way!

Quick Update

Zoop

Hello wonderful supporters! Just a quick update to let you know that the first pass of the book is almost done and we'll hopefully be headed to the printer soon. 
 
As some of you may know, Bart was dealing with a family emergency the past month, and is also in the process of moving his studio. 
 
He feels bad about losing a little bit of time to all of that, but we're still looking good in the long run :)  More soon!

Commission Requests

Zoop

Hi everyone - there are still quite a few of you out there that bought commissions from Bart during the campaign but haven't gotten back to us yet with your requests. Just a friendly reminder to either respond to our email or write us at hello@wearezoop.com so Bart can add yours to his to-do list. Thanks!!

2021-08-12 19:34:39

Charging Credit Cards + Commission Requests

Zoop

Just a heads up (pun intended) that we've started to charge everyone's credit cards, so you should see confirmation emails in your inboxes soon, if you haven't already. If there are any charges that don't go through, for whatever reason, we'll be reaching out individually to get those folks taken care of too.
 
Also, for all of you supporters who bought a commission from Bart, look out for an email reminder from us today for your commission requests. We'll shoot all of those requests over to Bart as we get them so he can start getting to work!

2nd Stretch Goal is reached in the final hours!!

Zoop

Wow - thanks to a final push we got over the $12k mark in the final hours -- which means we hit the 2nd stretch goal! Bart will now sign everyone's books! Well done, everyone :)
 
As far as next steps, credit cards will be charged over the next week, and then we'll be reaching out to any supporters that we'll need feedback from (i.e. specifics for the sketch commissions).
 
Things are in flux due to the pandemic and other factors, and shipping delays are common, but we're going to be honest and transparent and keep you updated through each step of the printing and shipping process.
 
Thanks again!!

48 Hours Left!

Zoop

Eddie Murphy thinks you're #1 if you decide to support this campaign. Last chance to grab the book and a sketch -- let's get to that second Stretch Goal!!

 

2021-07-29 06:13:36

First Stretch Goal Unlocked!

Zoop

We've crossed the $10k mark, which means everyone gets free digital copies of the book!! Great job everyone :)
 
Now it's onto the second Stretch Goal at $12k, where Bart will sign everyone's book! For free! I mean, don't creators usually charge a lot for that?? Bart must really love you guys...

2021-07-18 02:15:21

FULLY FUNDED!

Jordan

Well, that escalated quickly!  A huge thank you from the Zoop team to all the backers who helped this project reach it's goal!  We're so excited, and it looks like you are too!  So many amazing sketches will be finding homes when this campaign is over!

And now onto the stretch goals!  There's 18 days left, so we're feeling good about adding some extras to the campaign!  If the campaign reaches it's first stretch goal of $10,000, every backer will also receive a digital .pdf copy of Heads Will Roll!  And, if we can push even further to $12,000, then every book will come SIGNED by Bart Sears!  Can we do it?!!?  

Thank you all for the support, and for having some fun with us on this campaign!  We're not done yet, we're going to see how far we can keep this thing rolling....... (see what we did there?)

THANK YOU!

Updated Stretch Goals and New Requested Sketches!

Zoop

Hey everyone! The campaign is going great, as we're approaching the funding goal and can't wait to start knocking down some Stretch Goals soon! Speaking of which, the Stretch Goal section has been updated with two things that we think might make you pretty happy: at $10k everyone gets a digital copy of the book and at $12k Bart signs everyone's copies!! Bart's not messing around here - he really wants to hook up his fans :)
 
Also, you'll notice we posted some new Requested Sketch Add-Ons this week. These are DOUBLE headshots. If you've ever wanted to have a kick ass sketch of a certain two characters facing off, Bart is here to make that vision a reality!
 
And keep checking back on the daily headshot polls, new original sketches for sale, and process videos - and let's keep having fun!

2021-07-07 06:07:11

50% Funded on Day 1!

Zoop

Wow! What an exciting start to this truly unique campaign! We are already over 50% to our funding goal in under 24 hours, which is an amazing accomplishment for any crowdfunding campaign! It takes fans like YOU, who appreciate the artistry of someone like Bart Sears to make this happen! The entire team sends eternal gratitude your way!
 
Just to let you know, some of those early sketches that Bart has done are already sold. But have faith - more will be revealed throughout the campaign!  Keep an eye on the page to see what head sketch will be available next! Always a reason to check back in on how the campaign is going!  
 
And don't forget - there are daily opportunities to let us know what YOU think the next head sketch should be through Bart's Facebook and Instagram pages, as he'll need your help to decide.
 
Thank you again for such a great first day and we look forward to having fun and really having some cool art pop it's "head" into the game!  (See what we did there?!)
 
Let's GOOOOO!!!!!!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I purchase more than 1 item?

YES!  We encourage you to purchase more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description. 

What's the idea behind the Rewards and Add-Ons? Can I get both?

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Will there be a post-campaign period where you can make changes and get add-ons through a 'pledge manager'?

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!

If I purchase rewards and then want to make changes to that purchase later on in the campaign, what is the process?

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Where can I find your shipping rates?

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

Do you ship to my country?

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS.

If I got a reward that requires some feedback from me, how do I let you know my request?

You could e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

Any other questions / comments?

Please e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll get right back to you!

How do I cancel a transaction?

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.
 
Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

What does Zoop use for checkout and when would my credit card be charged?

We use Stripe for checkout, and the interface is entirely pre-made by them. Once there, you have 15 minutes to complete the transaction. Stripe then holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and charges it shortly after the campaign is over. You'll get an email confirmation with a summary of rewards and charges both after the initial pledge and after the actual charging of the card (try looking in your spam folder if you don't happen to see it in your inbox).

Does Zoop save my credit card info?

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.
