NOW LIVE On KickStarter – Zine Club Pledge Drive!

Now live on KickStarter, it’s the Zine Club Pledge Drive!

I love making zines! 

For the first half of my webcomics-making career, I offered zines as rewards for patrons on Patreon…back when I was on the platform. After I left Patreon, I moved to Ko-Fi and offered the Zine Club as a membership tier. 

And for this latest KickStarter campaign, I’m opening up for new pledges to my Zine Club!

Right now, our membership is small – less than 13 people. We are a pretty cozy community of creative folks. I love them! AND I would love to grow the club to more members. To get more zines out into the world AND to make more webcomics happen!

Growing the Zine Club would also mean less of a need to hustle so much for income. Less hustling means more time for making rewards, too.

With your help, I would LOVE to grow the Zine club to make these goals happen. KEEP IN MIND, These are set intentionally low so we can hit goals and spread the word faster:

(This is already unlocked!) If we raise our Base Goal of $72, all backers and Zine Club members will get the Deluxe version of my tabletop roleplaying game, Toe Beans & Broomsticks! This game was originally designed for Free RPG Day last year. In it, you play as magic-casting cats, crows, dogs, and owls on a Saturday Morning adventure. The Deluxe edition of the game will have updated character tokens, NPCs, and a homebrewed game setting, The Lost Scroll of Madam Jellybean!

(ALSO UNLOCKED!) If we raise $143, all backers and Zine Club members will get the remastered PDF of Thoughtful Dinosaur!

If we raise $220, all backers and Zine Club members will get the PDF of New Punk Signal (The Signal So Far), the spin-off/sequel to Validation featuring everyone’s favorite himbos, Mike & Steve.

At $385, all backers and Zine Club members will get The Lore of Jamie Roberts, the zine containing SO MUCH RESEARCH that went into The Legend of Jamie Roberts. The zine will also contain concept art and a recipe for the pepper soup that appears in Chapter 3 of The Legend.

We also have stretch goals if we go BEYOND $385! But we’ll unlock those when we get there.

Can you pledge and become a member – even for just a month?

Then back this campaign! There are base rewards on the main page, and whichever one you click, you have your choice of add-ons to pick with your bundle!

Broke? Share this campaign far and wide! Sharing is caring and it helps more than you know. The link is tinyurl.com/kzineclub

That’s all for now. Thank you so much for your support!

You. Are. Awesome.

Drawing Cats and Comics – A Live Stream Replay

Today at 6 pm EST, feel free to lurk while I work on cat art for a new Crowdfundr AND draw more comics.

I’m running a Crowdfundr campaign for CATS: The Sketchbook, a collection of cat sketches I drew during Inktober last year. You can check out the campaign, but it’s not live until Friday. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter to get the first notice of when it opens!

You can also play my cat witch tabletop RPG, Toe Beans & Broomsticks, by downloading the rulebook from my ko-fi shop.

To read my genderqueer pirate adventure comic, The Legend of Jamie Roberts, you can read the free version online, or you have the option to get the print version of volume 1 with remastered art and behind-the-scenes content like sketches and bonus comics. Volume 2 is coming to my online shop soon, I promise!

That’s all for now. Thank you for watching and for your support!

LIVE STREAM – FINAL HOURS for The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 2 on Crowdfundr!

Today’s live stream features the FINAL HOURS for my latest graphic novel, The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 2 on Crowdfundr!

So what happens after volume 1? Who’s the Basho twin Jamie’s been talking to? What will happen to the Chief? What’s going to happen to the orb? AND WHAT’S UP WITH THE DRAGON??

There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to get The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 2 on Crowdfundr. New stretch goals have been unlocked, including exclusive stickers. PLUS, you can select rare and limited edition acrylic pins as part of your rewards!

In today’s stream, we’re fundraising for the final stretch before the campaign closes! All while drawing new material for the book.

And then, we’re also talking up the next Crowdfundr campaign launching Sept 1 (the next day) – Mr. Dino Pride Keychains and Stickers, yo.

What can I say? There have been some exciting things happening with Fantasyville Productions, aka my art business.

I hope you enjoy the live stream. Thanks for watching!

From Sketch to Finished: The Cover for The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 2

Today, I want to show a piece of art from a sketch to the finished piece. This time, it’s the cover art for The Legend of Jamie Roberts, volume 2. (It’s still on Crowdfundr, by the way! Get a pre-order of the book while you can.)

Here’s the initial sketch that I drew in 2015…

Here’s a redraw of the same sketch, drawn in 2020…

Here is final art I made for the cover art of Volume 2…

I can’t help it, I love this art.

In fact, I love it so much that I want to see how you color this. Here is a link to download the line art. If you color this, tag me on Instagram @kelcidcomics or Ko-fi @kelcidcrawford.

And don’t forget that The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 2 is still on Crowdfundr! Pre-order your copy and help us reach our goals.

That’s all for now. Thank you for scrolling!
