For most artists, being able to transcend a single medium and/or genre is a goal that typically leads to career longevity. Not all artists can make a living in a single niche, nor can they satisfy that creative instinct, without somehow diversifying. Greg "Craola" Simkins' latest endeavor will definitely open new doors of inspiration for established artists and newcomers alike. Coming off of a successful book launch and with the help of a Kickstarter and C4toons, Greg Simkins is hoping to take his "I'm Scared" theme to a whole new level with a stop motion film aptly titled: "I'm Scared".

From the "I'm Scared" A Stop Motion Film by Greg "Craola" Simkins Kickstarter page:
Greg “Craola” Simkins is an inspired and ambitious artist with a widely collected and highly coveted body of work. It is his careful weaving of pop culture, the old masters, nature, carnival kitsch, and (most importantly) his warped imagination that makes Greg a sought-after surrealist painter today. (taken from I’m Scared is a recurring theme in Greg’s art. "I'm Scared" is the age old story of the conflict between the imaginations of little boys and the monsters they battle on a nightly basis. It is also the story of the dynamics of brothers and how each looks at the world through completely different eyeballs. "Just becasue you grew up, doesn't mean they went away." -GS

With tons of great rewards being offered, there is sure to be something for everyone. Collectors and fans of Craola will find that this Kickstarter is a great opportunity to fund a great project, while at the same time getting rewarded (depending on a pledged amount) with an original painting, an original sketch, an awesome print, or even a painting session with Greg at his studio in LA. Being a fan of Craola, I found it difficult to choose only one reward, which should be considered a good thing, due to all the great rewards available. At the very least, help spread the word of this awesome Kickstarter and if willing, make a pledge for one of the many awesome rewards.

As the Kickstarter moves forward, expect updates and changes to be announced, as is typical with most every Kickstarter project.
