As packed as last week was… I really don’t want to go through that again. Or, rather, all at once!
On the plus side, we got off to a quick start of Kickstarter… raised 5% of the budget int he first 36 hours! I got retweeted on the campaign by both Manga Studio from Dummies author and cartoonist Doug Hills and writer/artist Jimmy Palmiotti, as well as from a couple of Kickstarter-aggregating/based companies! Not only that, but I made the “Most Popular Comics” list the second day in!
Aside from that, got some more penciling done this weekend. Looking to either pencil or ink through today. I think the idea of have 15 completed pages by Thanksgiving’s looking good (I’ll certainly have 10).
On the negative side… not going into that, because I don’t want any of you to think I’m trying to get sympathy pledges or anything, and in the end, it’s a bit private.
Point being…. it was a hell of a week.
As far as the campaign goes right now… I do need help! I’m 20 cents short of being 6% funded, but I only have 22 days left to go! That means I have to get another $6270 in 22 days, an average of $285 in pledges a day from now ’til then!
I’m doing everything I can… I have a Facebook ad campaign up and running. I also created a fan page for the campaign itself (I encourage you to “like” and keep up there!), where I will be posting updates, images from my drawing table as I continue work, etc. We’re up to 50 fans now, and I’d like to add a lot more to it!
Lastly, if you haven’t already, please check out the campaign! Even if you can’t (or won’t) pledge, do me a favor and click on the video to watch…. even that helps (as it puts me further along in the “most popular projects” list)!
