My Story:

All my life I've dreamed of making art my career, and now I'm ready to enter the big world of independent artists!

I would like to produce and promote my artwork at my first Artist Alley at Austin Comic Con in October 2012.  To do this, I will need $400.00 to cover the production cost of pins and prints.  So I'm turning to you!  With your help, I will make this happen!

If you'd like to view my artwork and comics, please visit my gallery at NikkiWardArt.deviantart.com .

Here is a table showing the multiple packages, and what you can get at each different price point.

What will my money pay for?

The money that you pledge will go towards the production cost of items featuring my artwork.  Specifically, 1.5" pinback button pins, 8x10 prints and 4x6 postcard prints.  I have 16-20 pin designs planned, three 8x10 prints planned, and ten 4x6 postcard prints planned.

What are the production plans and goals?

Goal 1:  Compile & format all prints and pins so that they are polished and ready for production.  I also have a few more art pieces that I am designing (such as the UBERPINS) and I will post concept sketches and updates to keep you in the loop throughout the whole process.

Goal 2:  Once the project is successful, I will send all of my files to my local print shop and friendly pin company.  This is also the time when the Alice vs. ALICE t-shirts will be created.  After sending everything off to print, I will roll up my sleeves get to work on those Sketch Card & 8x10 commissions!

Goal 3:  Convention time!  After receiving my prints and pins, I will skip joyfully off to Austin Comic Con, where I will be able to sell and promote my art for the first time in an Artist Alley!

Documentation Goals:  I plan to post updates on sketches, art prints, the Kickstarter project itself, and I'm even kicking around the idea of a blooper video reel as a bonus.  Anything to keep you guys entertained and informed!
