Hey guys! So as I’ve been posting, I’m doing my first ever non-US con this year and tabling at Thought Bubble in Leeds! As summer winds down and November, and my trip, looms nearer, I am getting more and more anxious about it, so I’m offering some limited edition shirts to help cover some of the expenses of the trip. Here’s the info I wrote for the campaign:
I’ve been tabling at cons for over 15 years now, but only within the states. Over the last few years, I’ve gained a following overseas, and have had lots of requests to do a European con, and this year I finally have a shot, but travel that far just ain’t cheap!
It’s been a dream of mine to return to Europe for years now. As a military brat, I lived in Germany as a kid and was lucky enough to visit a number of countries, but was too young to appreciate it. Now I have a chance to go back so I can table at Thought Bubble in Leeds, one of the coolest independent comic cons anywhere. My table is secured, my flight is booked, and now I’m broke. By getting a shirt, you’re helping me with other incidental costs, such as hotel, travel/train fare, food, and actually getting product to sell at the con. In the long run, I’ll ideally create a sketchbook or mini comic based on the trip, which I’ll be posting online in 2015, and the help I get through this campaign will go a long way in making that happen. This particular design will never be available on any other merchandise from me EVER, so once these shirts are done, they’re done for good, so you’ll get something something super unique in return for helping me make this happen.
I have shirts on two different sites because I wanted to offer an alternate color option because I am indecisive, ugh. I have to sell 25 of the green option, and 50 of the pink option in order to get the funds from the campaigns, so please help signal boost if you can! (Don’t worry, if I don’t sell enough shirts to meet the minimum, you won’t be charged at all).
