“Mind My Gap” of face : campaign the crowdfunding !

As many of you know, Rosto left us at the start of the year. He left behind a huge work but also projects about to be completed.

The big project of his life was his online graphic novel MIND MY GAP. Rosto had always had the idea of ​​adapting it into a physical object : a comic book accompanied by songs by his group Thee Wreckers which inspired his entire visual universe.

The graphic novel MIND MY GAP (210 pages) accompagné du double album SONGS FROM MY GAP (30 unreleased tracks) are now ready to be edited. We are therefore launching a crowdfunding campaign to see this project, which is particularly close to our hearts, come true as he wanted.

We need you for this ! ❤️

In addition to the graphic novel by 210 pages as well as his double album of 30 unreleased tracks, we offer rewards to continue this experience beyond reading : un pack DVD/Blu-ray de Thee Wreckers Tetralogy, a So Far So Evil collector's vinyl including 9 pieces from Rosto's short films as well as an unreleased double-sided flipbook Thee Flippin’ Wreckers !
