bones of the coast

The Kickstarter for Bones of the Coast, Cloudscape’s latest anthology, has ended, and it earned $48,438 from 1,362 backers! That’s 166% of our initial goal of $29,200! We surpassed all three of our stretch goals, resulting in extra money for our contributors and a spot foil & spot gloss for our anthology. You’ve helped to make Bones of the Coast not just a reality but a phenomenal success. Thanks to the enthusiasm of our backers, Bones of the Coast will be the first Cloudscape anthology to pay all of its creators a professional rate for their contributions to the anthology.

Cloudscape HQ will be closed April 20 as we’ll be at SNAG!

snagAs we mentioned before, on Wednesday, April 20, Cloudscauep will be participating in SNAG at the Cobalt Club, painting original artwork and selling books from 7:30 to midnight. Because of that, the HQ will be closed on April 20. So come over to the Cobalt instead! A lot of great artists from our upcoming book Bones of the Coast will be painting there, including Renee Nault, Reetta Linjama, Simon Roy, and Pam Wishbow. Stop on by!


Cloudscape Edition of SNAG

snagWednesdays at the Cobalt Club is SNAG, where artists paint all night and the club raffles them off. It’s a great way to get some original artwork without losing a bundle. Cloudscape will be participating in SNAG on April 20th from 7:30 – midnight. We’ll be raising money for Bones of the Coast that night, we want everyone in Cloudscape to come if possible. See SNAG’s Facebook page for more information.
