In July, I had all proceeds from the sales of my prints benefit the ACLU.
So how did it go?
Well…truthfully, only one print sold. But I had a little extra in my budget, so I rounded up this final donation:
I advertised this fundraiser on my email newsletter and Instagram page, but not many other places. I likely could have gotten more results posting about this on TikTok and/or Tumblr. Also, next time, I’ll make a banner on this blog to shout out fundraisers. Maybe even post KickStarter updates (because I have 10+ campaign pages I can post updates to).
So let this be a lesson in marketing/getting the word out – announce things in more than one or two places!
That said, I’m glad to have made the one sale, and to make the donation to the ACLU.
Kay the Valkyrie hit its funding goal in the first hour that it launched! Now, there are only 52 hours left to get your print.
If we get to 10 backers, everyone who backs the campaign will get a FREE bundle of quarter-sized pins included in their rewards.
Should we get to 15 backers, then everyone will get free pins AND a free bookmark.
Book Bundles and Sticker Bundles are STILL available as add-ons! Plus, there’s the option to include commissions in your rewards. So if you would like me to draw something custom (especially as a gift), then get that add-on.
Want to see what other add-ons are available? I talk about them in this archived live stream. Go check that out, yo.
Starting today, and running until October 22, I’m showcasing my work at Aistear Brewing in Bowling Green, Ohio! Ah, my old stomping grounds.
I reached out to the owner and asked if he was interested in showing off my prints. He agreed – and he also offered me a spot in Aistear Con in October. These prints and mini-prints will be on display in their gaming area until the start of Aistear Con on October 22.
Not in the area? Some of these prints (but not all) are also available in my Ko-Fi shop. Some of the prints on the wall are exclusive to Aistear, though (sorry).
That’s all for now! Thank you for your support! Without it, I wouldn’t have gotten this far.
Yes, I do! I did remove the things that are sold out, so those things I removed are gone forever. BUT…I still have mystery bags. Plus I will be making more mystery bags soon. Also, they’re now $1 (and shipping is $5 for USA shoppers).
After much discussion and user feedback via Instagram, the votes trended towards THIS design shown up top. So I drew it.
RathaCon is host to a LOT of nerdy events, from tabletop gaming rooms to belly dancers and Quidditch. I wanted this design to incorporate the many scenes that RathaCon has played host to.
I even squeezed in some gears for the steampunk elements, because there’s a steampunk contingent that appears every year. Magic: The Gathering cards and comic books will fill up some of the spaces around the edges. Plus the GhostBusters logo is to homage the local GhostBusting team.
There’s still some details to fit in, but so far it’s off to a great start. Don’t ya’ think?
