I like to doodle. Only I call my doodles "Dordles". I want to make 30 of your favorites into high-quality color 4x6" postcards.
I like to doodle. But I call my doodles Dordles. A Dordle is not quite a drawing and not quite a doodle. Each mark of lacerating genius is recorded on scrap paper then polished on computer. Some are done entirely on computer. Hopefully this keeps them playful and fun.
Currently, I have over 440 of them with themes that range from funny to somber, sweet to perverse, and often involving a good, old-fashioned pun.
So far my Dordles have only been seen online. And while they have proven fairly popular on blogs over the years, they have never existed in tangible form.
I need you, kind Kickstarter user, to vote on your favorite designs and help turn them into high-quality color 4x6" post cards. I've run a test through a vendor for 5 designs and they turned out great. I'm so excited to make more!
The 30 designs with the most votes will be printed, 100 cards minimum of each, for a total of 3000 cards. I'll send these to friends, family, enemies, publishers, and independent books stores that I hope will want to carry them.
Basically, I want as many people as possible to see them in person.
Additional copies of the cards will be printed to give to anyone who helps fund the project.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
I'm a book publisher interested in publishing a book of your Dordles through my publishing company, would you be into this?
You had me at "I'm a book publisher interested in publishing a book of your Dordles through my publishing company"! Of course I would. Please contact me.
No. Shipping is included unless the USPS does something insane with postage rates between now and January. Though if you are international, we might need to work something out.
As mentioned above, all the extra money will be used to print more designs and offer greater variety between the cards people get as incentives.
Unfortunately, the 100+ level was limited to 10 drawings. I added 5 rewards at a new $60 level though that sweeten the deal with a copy of my Sad Poems. Sad Poem aren't drawings, though they do create images in the mind. Their whit is sharp like a sword to a cuttable surface.
