Hi there! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ My name is Shirley and I'm a Black and Korean full-time independent artist living in Central California with my 18 year old iguana Ness, and my German Shepherd puppy Eden.

 What started as daily paintings for Inktober of 2017, 야생의신명 or Oracles of the Wild has now transformed into something bigger—my very first art book and a 31 pin collection!

I've now had 14 successful Kickstarter campaigns (including the original campaign that started the enamel pin Kickstarter trend) and for my 15th I've decided to dream big and put together this kaiju of a campaign!

Here's a compilation of my previous campaigns! ( ´ ▽ ` )

There are 31 pins total in this collection!

Main funding will be for the 6 designs that are part of the 하늘의( HEAVENLY ) mask set, along with the risograph art book.

The other 25 pin designs are stretch goals that backers will be able to order if unlocked!

Pin Specs:

  • 1.25 x 1.25 inches
  • Gold metal
  • Hard enamel
  • Screen-printed details
  • Double backing posts
  • Rubber clutches

야생의신명 or Oracles of the Wild is a 5.25” x 6.5”, 38 page risograph* art book that will be printed by Risolve Studios on Mohawk Via Vellum paper with black and metallic gold.

*Risograph is a type of printmaking method! Risograph gives you that handmade DIY aesthetic (similar to silk screen-printing) but with the efficiency of a machine.

Each page will feature one mask, their bestowed name, and a short description of the qualities and spirit that embodies the mask.

Funding is for 100 of each of the 6 pins in the 하늘의 ( HEAVENLY ) mask set, and a print run of 50 art books. However, more will be printed if needed for this first edition.

Risograph printing costs: $678.15

Pins: $1347.00

Pin backing cards: $244.00

Shipping: $424.00

Kickstarter fees: $135.00

Risks and challenges

This will be my 15th!! Kickstarter campaign so I'm rather seasoned when it comes to running a campaign, fulfilling rewards, and working with manufacturers. ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و

I will warn that we may run into some delays in regards to pin manufacturing.
This past year we've had some issues regarding quality which ends up causing minor delays. But in the end, I've always been able to get the quality of product I want.
Pin quality issues have been happening much more frequently I feel that it's now appropriate to mention delays may happen, and should be expected, as a precaution.

These pins are also going to be using an additional screen printing technique which I've never tried before! So we may run into some quality issues on that front as well. But again, my manufacturer has always been faithful when it comes to helping me get the high quality I expect when something goes wrong.

I heavily pride myself in making sure I stay upfront and transparent when it comes to communicating with my backers. I like to keep everyone in the loop in regards to whatever's going on, including when we may run into issues. And I've got a wonderful track record on ensuring backers get their rewards in a timely manner.
