Update #5

We reached $3500!

1 comment

Hi everyone,

Three quick pieces of good news:

First:

We reached $3500! The good news about that is that when it comes time to select prints, everyone who is getting a print, drawing, or Origin Story can select an additional 8" x 10" print, as promised.

Second:

The 2nd of this week's 3 updates was posted today, here:

http://www.circus-saudade.com/2012/04/25/through-the-train-cars/

The 3rd will be posted Friday morning, if all goes as planned.

Third:

I said I would reveal something for $4000, as well, and here's what I'm working on:

I'm doing a series of color portraits of several main characters from the comic. Right now the plan is include Gracie, the Fiddler, and the two below who we've yet to be introduced to: the Trapeze Girl and the Ringmaster. They actually have names, but we'll get to that in time.

These two samples are very much works in progress, but I wanted to give you a sense of what they'll be.

These will automatically get thrown into the print pool for the 8" x 10" prints, but if we do reach $4000, I'll be able to make postcards of them and I'll put the set of 4 into every package I'm sending out to donors.

That's a bit of new info. If it was unclear or I screwed it up, feel free to throw any questions my way.

As always, thanks for everything! Your support means the world.

My absolute best,
-Colin

    A one-of- a-kind, signed drawing of a Circus Saudade character. For this reward, I'll choose the character to draw. It may be one of the characters we haven't been introduced to in the comic yet. The drawing is in pencil on 8" x 11" artist's paper. This also comes with the PDF of the first chapter of Circus Saudade, delivered upon its completion in 2013.

    A one-of- a-kind, signed drawing of a Circus Saudade character of your choice. The drawing is in pencil on 8" x 11" artist's paper. Admittedly, at this time we've only met a small number of the characters. You can see a few more in the "Women of Circus Saudade" print, but you can wait and also cash in this reward when you discover a character you like most, if you'd like. This also comes with the PDF of the first chapter of Circus Saudade, delivered upon its completion in 2013.

    Your very own Circus Saudade "Origin Story" about you or a loved one. A recurring theme of Circus Saudade will be one-off comics that tell the story of how individuals came to exist within the circus and perform certain roles. An example is in the main info of the kickstarter to the left. I'll seek your input about what kind of circus role you or your loved one would enjoy, try to accommodate you as closely as a I can (some roles are already reserved for main characters) and then create your Origin story comic. Not only will it be published on the Circus Saudade website, I will also send you a signed print of your origin story. You or your loved one might even appear in other comics as a side character from time to time. This also comes with the PDF of the first chapter of Circus Saudade, delivered upon its completion in 2013.
