ON AUGUST 1st, 2017
After making this comic a day at a time, reworking it with new art and preparing to print… I realized I’d been making this project alone!
Posting the pages online did lead to some nice fan interaction, but I want to include more of you into my process from now on. I’ve decided crowdfund the printing of Bellmage as a first start.
The project will launch on Kickstarter on August 1st and run for 30 days. I’m offering reward tiers ranging from a digital copy of the comic, to printed comics, to even getting yourself or your business drawn into the next comic! I’ll get more detailed in the upcoming weeks.
To be perfectly honest, I’m so accustomed to doing everything by myself that crowdfunding feels like a major, terrifying step. Forget meeting the funding goal, what if I only get one backer? And it’s my relative??
Or even the flip side: What if it is wildly successful? What if it’s way too much to handle? What if I need to hire an assistant? Who would I even hire?!
In all directions it seems impossible. But why not attempt the impossible right? That’s how progress is made.
I’ll be back with more details soon! If you want to stay more up to date, sign up for the newsletter as I’ll be sharing more sneak peeks and tidbits there!
