A Vintage Picture Book of Swell Modern Moments pays homage to the early days of animation, with a modern twist - featuring everything from memes to pop culture moments reimagined as old-timey cartoons.
Inspired by ‘rubber hose’ - a technique of drawing made popular in the 1920s, which can be seen in iconic animations such as Steamboat Willie, as well as the legendary Fleischer animations, and named this way due to the characters’ rubbery limbs, artist Sarah Sumeray has brought this unique style into the current age. 

After receiving a positive response on social media to these distinct drawings, it made sense to bring it to the masses with a full book collection. So now is your chance to be involved to bring this project to life, with an exciting selection of reward levels to pick from, including a special signed edition, signed prints, and even the chance to have yourself or a friend drawn in the iconic pie-eyed rubber hose style. 
Pick your pledge and help get this doozy of a book to print!

    5th December 2020 Thank you for your first week support!

    Hello backers! I wanted to send out a thank you message for your support in helping me reach 10% in my first week. I’ve been informed that most successful campaigns get to 100% within around 3-6 months, so at this rate I should be able to reach that ultimate goal!

    However, it’s difficult to get the word out in order to ensure enough people support the project, so please spread the word with anybody…
