Sooo, yeah. Holy burritos, you guys! It's been one very mind-blowing week!
My Kickstarter project was funded within 24 hours and just continued to skyrocket from there. I couldn't believe it, still can't. I'm shocked, excited and - well, humbly grateful, really. Once I picked my jaw up off the floor I started formulating a solid game plan for how I will use the funds to help my independent art aspirations, what I will set aside for Ikkicon this December, etc. Here's some random good news: I can get a button maker for all my pins - which, as I found out, is a great investment and cheaper in the long run than ordering them from other companies! Whooo knewww?
I also came up with a stretch goal for $2,000 (because stretch goals are the things to do on Kickstarter!) If we hit $2,000 it firstly means that someone will need to grab a defibrillator and zap me back into the waking world, and secondly it means I will be able to print the first volume of my Alice vs. ALICE comic! At this time, I estimate that it will be a 20 page, full-color, stapled comic, complete with comics, sketches and possibly an art piece or two - maybe some fan art, we'll see. Backers at the $30.00 level and above will receive a signed copy and EVERY backer will receive a .pdf copy! Please note that if this stretch goal is met then the mini-comics will most likely not be shipped out until December 2012 or January 2013 due to the time it will take to format the pages and send them to print.
Also, since we blew past the $1,700 mark, I'm excited to say that backers at pledge level $15.00 and up will be receiving a 3" UBERPIN featuring original artwork that nobody has seen yet
Long story short, there are still 22 days to go on this Kickstarter project, and I'm about $189.00 away from being able to print the first volume of AvsA! So, if'n you feel like it, please feel free to toss a couple of bucks into the pot, or pass it along to your friends and family
Here is the link to my Kickstarter project and video!
And just as a heads up, I'm going to be kinda MIA for the next 6 days. Heading off to see some family and do wedding dress shopping and have my wedding shower! The theme of my shower is Mad Bride's Tea Party and I made tiny Mad Hatter hats for the guests to wear. Directly following that is my niece's My Little Pony party, for which I made My Little Pony cutie mark cookies! I'm going to try to knock out some Sketch Card commissions in the evenings while I'm out there, but we'll see how crazy things are. Regardless, a buttload of art is on its way to my gallery and I am going to be tethered to my Cintiq till Austin Comic Con....I LOVE IT! It's honestly what I've wanted to do for so long, a literal dream come true!
Also: I am working on the hundred dollar Alice vs. ALICE doodles that you all voted on. Here's what you can look forward to:
$200.00 doodle - A Cheshire cat play-date!
$300.00 doodle: - Drunken Japanese Kareoke!
$400.00 doodle: - Battle the oncoming zombie squirrel horde!
If you would like to see the first volume of Alice vs. ALICE printed, then please consider becoming a backer of my Kickstarter project! Also, I'm going to be gone for the next week doing weddingy things but after that there will be an asston of art! And I also love you guys. HEARTS <3
