Frequent Tool collaborator Chet Zar has a new Kickstarter campaign happening, this time for a new project called Dystopia. The focus of the project seems to be the publication of a new book DY5TOPIA: A Field Guide to the Dark Universe of Chet Zar:

Why Support?

Written by: Mike Correll

Have you ever encountered a painting so intriguing, that you wanted to know what lay outside the confines of the frame? Enter Chet Zar, the prolific “Painter of Dark” who captures what seem to be snapshots of monsters from another world. Each has its own personality and sense of humanity, while the brief glimpses he allows us into their surroundings are both unsettling, and awe inspiring!

What You’re Supporting…

What if you could help create a book that probes into this unknown realm, a book filled with both old and new Chet Zar monsters? This is your opportunity to enter the bizarre landscapes that Chet has channeled with his sketches, sculptures and paintings. You will be guided through the peculiar geography, culture, and creatures that inhabit a place not far removed from our own: DY5TOPIA. You will see close-up sketches of accoutrements, landscapes and dwellings, and read about how this Dark Universe works.

The campaign looks like it’s off to a strong start and isn’t far off getting half way. If you enjoy Chet’s art, then there is a range of reward options for supporting the project.
