Help me turn my emo webcomic into a set of greeting cards for the upcoming New York Comic Con & New York Stationary Show.
Help me turn my webcomic into a series of greeting cards so I can show at the New York Comic Con & New York Gift Show!
See once upon a time I was in love with a DJ from Rhode Island. He broke my heart and drawing a webcomic became my way of coping.
It made me feel better. What I didn't know was that sharing my experiences would make other people feel better too. That's why I want to take my comics and turn them into a proper greeting card line.
((I'm good at feelings, which makes life kinda hard. And kinda beautiful.))
Three years, and many other emo experiences later, Hashtag The Planet continues as an outlet for my love, heartbreak, elation & worry. I draw about happy stuff too!
((And still think there is a dreamy boy or hot babe out there for all of us.))
Now that I have over 300 images, I need your help to print the full collection so that I can show my work at the New York Comic Con this fall & the New York Stationary show in May!
What your funding goes towards:
Funding of this project will allow me to have 10 sets of the cards professionally printed (72 images per full set), here in the states by moo.com on recycled paper, entrance fees to the two shows & a color catalog so suppliers can place orders!
Wouldn't that be the coolest thing ever!?
Okay! Thanks for reading! Lob you!
oh! and ps! a special thanks to Matthew, who made me a super awesome video even tho I was the most awkward person in universe! And Pat, who was the first person (aside from super close friends) who told me to keep drawing the comic (even back then when it was super ghetto). And to all my tumblr & comic book frens. And actual friends! Hoho, Eli, Tcan, Miel. And Nackdore aka Fat Guy aka my dog... and, last but not least, all the boys who made me sad and gave me something to draw about. I'll always love/hate you for being so awesome/horrible.
