Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to announce my next Kickstarter. On Saturday, April 13, 2019, I will be launching a crowdfunding drive to fund a 24-page digest size comic (5.5 x 8.5 inches) titled "Tiffany & Corey's Funhouse".
(DISCLAIMER: The above image is a mock-up and will not be the final cover.) Tiffany & Corey's Funhouse will be funded by a combination of self-funding and crowdfunding. The goal for the Kickstarter will be to raise US$400. Of that amount, $200 goes towards the printing of the comic which will have a total print run of 500 copies. $125 will go towards mailing supplies and first class postage to backers. (I did some testing by mailing a copy to myself.) That comes to $325; all remaining funds will cover anything unforeseen as well as paying for processing fees and the 3-5% cut taken by the Kickstarter people. Again, the goal for this Kickstarter is $400. Now let's talk about our rewards. Just as little as US$1 gets your name printed in the comic on the editorial page. A pledge of US$3 will get your name printed in the comic plus a copy of Tiffany & Corey's Funhouse mailed out to you anywhere in the USA. If you reside in Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe or anywhere else in the world, a pledge of US$5 will get your name printed in the comic plus a copy mailed out to you anywhere in the world outside the United States. A special limited tier will be available for retailers (those who own a comic shop, storefront, and so on). A pledge of US$20 will get you 10 copies of the comic mailed to you plus some point-of-sale goodies! This tier will only be limited to backers in the USA. I will have some tiers at the level of US$50 & US$75 where original art will be available too. This will be cross-posted to the Sunnyville blog as well. Mark your calendars! We launch the Tiffany & Corey Kickstarter on Saturday, April 13!
Now for a brief interlude, fans. Tiffany & Corey is chiefly done in black & white. In spite of this, I do occasional color work. Since this work is chiefly drawn traditionally, I use traditional media to color cartoons or illustrations.
Markers are my tool of choice to color any work with Tiffany & Corey. I get good quality markers from art supply stores but these brands like Prismacolor, Copic and so on can cost a lot of money. Lucky for me, I look for bargains and shop around where I can.
