What’s the KickStarter Funding Next?

Ok, before I update you on how my trip to DC went, I need to make this post explaining something, because there’s been a bit of confusion.

Back in November, Kia and I ran the first KickStarter for Seeing Him, the Webcomic. That’s the campaign that failed.

Why?

Not just because the goal was too high, or the rewards were too much work.

The reason the goal was high was because we hoped to fund the first two to three chapters of the series.

We failed the first time.

So when Kia and I regrouped, we decided to only fund raise for the first 15 pages. It wasn’t the entirety of chapter 1, but 15 pages had a goal of $600. We both felt that $600 was a good, attainable amount to start with for an unknown webcomic.

The idea was, if we didn’t get funded at all, we just wouldn’t make the series. However, if we got funded at $600, we could make additional comics pages the stretch goals.

We would LOVE to get enough funds to make the first chapter in its entirety.

But for a webcomic that hasn’t started yet, that may be asking a bit too much.

So far, everyone has been super supportive and helping to get Seeing Him, the Webcomic funded! We are already up to a $100 stipend for Kia. Now our next goal is $750, to help cover Kia’s stipend and 20 pages of comics! The stretch goal after that, $900, will get Kia a bigger stipend of $150 AND get the full chapter done!

So, if you can, please give your support, whether you pledge or spread the word. Every little bit helps and we have less than 14 days left!

Thank you for reading.

You. Are. Awesome.

P.S. Tomorrow I’m going to talk about my trip to DC this last weekend. Look forward to: sunburns, cuckoo clocks, and art history. Oh my!

We Hit Our (First) Goal on KickStarter!

Thank you all SO MUCH for making Seeing Him, the Webcomic possible via KickStarter! We (Kia and I) are now fully funded! You are the best. <3

It really means a lot to me that you believe in this little love story of a trans man and a nerd girl. We needed more comics for and about trans men, and thanks to you, a new one is coming soon.

But it’s not quite over yet!

There are TWO stretch goals Kia and I want to unlock.

If we can get to $650, that means Kia can get a $100 stipend for all her work writing this comic. She was a little hesitant but I insisted on this one. She co-created this comic! She deserves a reward, too.

If we can get to $750, that means we can make 20 pages of comics!

We have other stretch goals in mind, but these two are ones we want to accomplish first.

Thank you for pledging to Seeing Him, the Webcomic! If you haven’t yet, please do so and help us reach our next goals. And please, help us spread the word!

You. Are. Awesome. <3

Adam and Greg Flex Muscles

Greg (on the left) and Adam (on the right) are best buddies. They met in their local bowling club and often go to the gym together.

Greg is a Spanish teacher who also runs an after-school sign language club and loves, loves, LOVES to bake and knit. While he almost always has “resting bastard face,” he’s actually a big sweetie.

Adam has tattoos on his arms that are usually covered by his scrubs, though he also has two scars on his chest from his mastectomy. Two tattoos cover them, saying “I am finally myself.”

Want to know more about their story? Check out my new KickStarter page for their webcomic, “Seeing Him.” And if you can, pledge support and spread the word!

Thanks for reading.

New Adam Sketch

Adam is fun to draw. I need to draw him more often.

In case you’re late to the game, Adam is the main romantic lead in Seeing Him, the Webcomic, which I’m running a KickStarter for.

More sketches of Adam are to come!

In the meantime, if you can, pledge to the KickStarter and spread the word. Every bit helps!

You. Are. Awesome.
