You’ve been with us since April & we’ve been keeping you posted on the time leading up to the launch of our Kickstarter campaign. Now is the time we need you to take some action & help fund our dreams to keep pulp art alive! Hopefully you’ve liked us on Facebook by now. But maybe you’re a little unsure of what’s the next step or what this whole Kickstarter thing is about.
For those of you who know what Kickstarter is, you know how important your support is. If you’re new to Kickstarter, it is an innovative way to fund creative projects in art, theater, technology, photography, film, video, food, the list goes on.
Thanks for following us this far, no matter which platform you use, but we really need you on Kickstarter. A pledge of as low as $1 will keep you in the loop with our updates and let you know exactly what is going on and where we are headed. We are continuing to work hard to bring our searchable Pulpimages database to life and need your help on Kickstarter to make it happen!
You’ll need a Kickstarter account, it’s easy, just back the project and follow the prompts. All financial transactions are securely handled through Amazon. If you don’t have an account, it will take an extra minute to enter your credit card and address info. You won’t be charged until our project is successful!
We love working with 427 Designs. Their a full service design firm located in an old Acme Bread factory in Akron, Ohio. Last week we shared a blooper reel from when Liz & Dwayne were filming a video that will be released once our kickstarter campaign gets going in June.
Today we shared a video from 427 Designs that shows they’re serious about their branding!
Make sure to watch all the videos, follow 427 Designs on Twitter, like on Facebook & check out their site too!
Today we featured this image:
And now, here’s a little backstory!
Virgil Finlay is the hand behind this illustration. Finlay specializes in science fiction and horror. Hailing from Rochester New York, he was inducted into The Science Fiction Hall of Fame and today, he was featured on the Pulp Images Facebook page!
A few days ago we introduced the new website for Pulp Images.
So following suite, here at the Pulp Images blog, we’d like to take a moment and make a few more introductions.
Meet a few members of our crew (though there’s plenty more)!
Dwayne Kiefer has been with NASA as a contractor going on his 21st year. Dwayne has worked on many teams that has flown numerous items in space. As a surprise to even him, he has won numerous (and some prestigious) awards. He is one of the workhorses behind all of the pulpimages activities. If you like our metal fulfillment items, thank Dwayne! He is the guy that does not sleep and when he does…he dreams of pulp women 🙂
Hi, I’m Liz, and I’ve worked as a contractor at NASA for going on 19 years now. I still love the space industry and all things scifi. When we started this project I went through all the images we had at the time to pick my favorites and had to stop when it got into the hundreds. Each picture is more amazing than the last. I’m very excited to bring this collection to the public!
Hello everyone, I’m Colette Davis and I am pleased to be a member of this excellent team. I work with Helen posting awesome content. Love the work!
I make up half of the social media crew for Pulp Images. Based in Northeast Ohio, I’m pumped to have a cool pulp project happening HERE in our area to share with the world!
We’re also working some awesome artists and a lot more people. More to come on them soon 🙂
For a lot of people, pulp art and pulp magazine might be nostalgic. Younger generations and generations of the future might not have the luxury of having a nostalgic feeling about pulps though if they’re not preserved.
But youngsters not having pulps is the worst case scenerio, so let’s not dwell too long on that. Let’s be optimistic for our future generations if pulps are preserved.
Imagine, in a new digital future, pulps aren’t some old nostalgic relic, but something new and current. Easily accessible.
Kids are growing up with technology at their fingertips. Let’s give them the same access to pulp art.
If you follow us on any of our other social media sites, you might have noticed we had a lot of postings geared towards kids. Not that grown-ups can’t get some usage out of the links too.
Take a moment to look into the different sites and help the kids in your life ease into the new digital age & hopefully usher in a new generation of pulp.
Fun Apps for Kids!
