Vessels #2 will be the next Kickstarter campaign launched by Kickstarter, and it’s coming early 2017 with a raft of bonus art prints by guest artists. We thought we’d compile them all for you here to see the kind of rewards you can expect next year.

Here’s a quick rundown of all the great works we have to offer:

Wake with guitar

This piece is by Vessels artist Rafael desquitado, with colour by Dennis Lehmann, and shows Wake holding an electric guitar like a weapon. The design is actually a tribute to popular Dark Souls character Artorias, the Abysswalker. This will be available as a print during our Kickstarter.


Next is an incredible piece of pixel art, which was created in full by Scottish artist Michael Philp, and was inspired by Dave’s love of the 16-bit era of gaming. Who knows? Maybe one day Vessels will indeed become a videogame :O

Here we see a piece of teaser art of thief Marillon together with her spirit wolf. The wolf makes her first appearance in Vessels #2 and is summoned via a technique Marillon learned from her people at a young age (more on that in a later issue!). This guest piece is by Lou Ho AKA Naniiebim, who is a truly stunning artist indeed.

Lastly, this piece will need no introduction to seasoned Card Shark fans. It’s our promo triptych from the Vessels #1 Kickstarter campaign brought together as one banner image. This will be available in its complete form during the Vessels #2 campaign. The lush art is by Rafael Desquitado with colours by Dennis Lehmann.

That’s just a taste of what to expect from Vessels #2 on Kickstarter, and we can’t wait to share more with you soon!

Until next time…
