The Kickstarter for Bellmage is coming up on August 1st!
Getting Blue Cat Co. off the ground as a place where fantastical stories are built and distributed has been an interesting challenge. AND SO MUCH FUN! I love learning, and the fact that there are so many moving parts to creating visual stories and publishing them is daunting, but so rewarding.
Let’s talk about the first official tale from Blue Cat Co: Bellmage.
Bellmage is a light-hearted journey about the trials of starting out as an apprentice in a clan of magical bellmakers. The story follows the journey of a fresh apprentice who is sent on a quest, totally untrained, and tasked with making a stone bell ring. She must figure out, not only the bell’s mysteries, but her place in the world she lives in.
The book runs 48 pages long and is packed with extra notes, bell terminology and explanations in addition to the story. Though it premiered online last year, the art has been redone (in color!) and the story touched up to be a bit more cohesive.
From the beginning, I’ve asked for community involvement in picking the story and crafting it along the way. Now I’d love for your help in bringing it to life as well!
This is a simple Kickstarter. Just books and a few ways to get yourself into the next comic Woolmancy. If this is successfully funded, you can bet that I have some amazing plans for the next book launch!
Stay tuned for future updates and the Kickstarter link!
