Ocular Anecdotes is a collection of my comics. I want to get them into your hands so you can read them.

Hello, i'm Peter, I write Ocular Anecdotes.

I'm trying to pull together £1500 (including Kickstarter fees, taxes, etc.) to print 3000 copies of Ocular Anecdotes. This edition will be 24 pages of comics printed on 52gsm improved newsprint (just like the old time funnies) to reflect the amazing history of the medium. All of the work has been written & designed, sketched & inked, coloured & compiled.

This edition of Ocular Anecdotes will include:

• 8 Pages of interrelated stories

• 4 pages of 'Le Petite Sortie' Strips (68 in total!)

• A complete 8 Page story

• 4 endpages with extra stories

I love stories about people, and I would hope that my taste in a variety of comics reflect this. Stories that are led by the characters' emotions are what I am drawn to. My storytelling is intentionally pared down, to focus on the subtleties of the narrative. Through pacing and rhythm, Ocular Anecdotes build together to give an empathetic portrait of the characters involved. Oh and you might even laugh once or twice too...

You can download some sample pages here.

I'm passionate about comics, and always excited to find new interesting creators. Hopefully you too will be interested to see the stories I have for you. I have been working on them for a while, and I am excited to be bringing them to a wider audience.

If you like the work, please let other people know, and if you have some cash and would like to read the work, it would be amazing if you could buy it. Maybe don't have that beer, and buy my comics instead...

If you own or run a shop, it would be great to get these comics into your store. There is a specific 10 copies pledge for retailers. Unfortunately 10 copies is the maximum number Kickstarter will allow, but please get in contact for a list of discounts for larger quantities that will be available after Ocular Anecdotes has been printed.

I understand that international postage is quite expensive, so hopefully the wonder of PDF web delivery as a reward for small contributions is a reasonable alternative. Every pledge also gets the 'La Petite Sortie' Typeface, so that you can amuse yourself all day long by typing out different characters in a variety of moods.

There are also risograph prints, original artworks, linocut books and special one time opportunities for a variety of different pledge amounts.

I would be so grateful if you were willing to part with a little cash and be a part of my project on Kickstarter. Thank you so much for looking at my page and watching my little video! If you wish you could support, but are unable to right now (we've all been there), you can show your digital support by sharing this on Twitter, Facebook or Re-Blogging the project. Even that would help a lot!

Please remember that this project only lasts for 30 days, so please don't delay. If I don't reach my goal, you won't be charged a thing. But nobody will be happy, cos you then you don't get your copy! Thanks very much for reading. I'm excited about getting them printed.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As a graphic designer, I am very comfortable with producing print ready artwork for printers to hit that 'GO' button. All of the comics are ready to send to print, and the rewards (apart from comics starring you of course!) are ready too. I'm eager to get these comics into your hands, so that you can read them in the colourful, textured way they are intended to be.
