Frequently Asked Questions
Some people are not familiar with Kickstarter and asked that I'd put up some sort of FAQ about it :) At the bottom of the post, there're links to more detail version but I'll try to explain in a simple way.
HJ-Story book is not yet made, this kickstarter page you're seeing is a fundraising page to ask for people's support to gather the funds to make the books. So just even by spreading the words would be a great giant help!
For HJ-Story, the target goal for the 2 volumes is $15,000 and the funding will run for 35 days, after it's over, if the target goal is met, then the book will be able to come to life!
On the right side of the page are "rewards", there're different type of rewards depending on how much you'd like to donate, you can also think of it is pre-ordering the books (Which will be shipped out in May approx). Some of the rewards sets include limited items that's only available during this fundraising campaign,etc.
That's basically the short version, you can find a lot more detail version here:
Basic Kickstarter 101
Backing a Project
I just pledged, how do I give you my shipping info, names to put in the credit page, caricature info,etc?
How Kickstarter works is that AFTER funding period is finished, I'll be creating a survey sheet for everyone to fill in their information such as address and name credits. So I'll be gathering the info in a month all together :)
For those that pledged for the caricature and commission set, I'll most likely be sending out message/email early so that I can get started on them during the fundraising period instead of piling it all up to the end.Last updated:
Yes! While laying out the book I'll probably set some char limit for each person so they can include their love one's name as well! (not sure about custom message yet, might get complicated)
I actually didn't think of that one when making the rewards. Only thought about thanking the backers! Thanks for reminding me!Last updated:
You can add +15 to the shipping fee and we'll ship it out to 2 separate address (Total: $35+$15).
After the project is fully funded and the funding ends, that's when we'll be collecting address,etc. If I can suggest you to remind me about shipping to two separate address that'd be really helpful incase someone I get confused.Last updated:
Caricature will be a character drawn in the HJ-Story style, because of HJS's style, the like-ness will not be so much based on the face, but on other distinct features such as hairstyle, clothing, accessories. It'll be a color digital commission.
Hi-resolution file will be sent after is completed so you can print it or make adjustments, etc.
Full Commission is a full commission piece 4"x6" size approx (flexible as long as it's not 1000"x1000") It can be a drawing base on an idea you might have, of a message you'd like to portray, or a scene you had in mind. There's really no limit unless you're asking for something really really extreme or offensive,etc :)

I've been receiving messages asking if there'll be more room for caricature set. I'm honestly not sure yet. When the campaign was created, I estimated the time it'd take to do all the work (book layout, print, drawings,etc) so I'd have to be more careful in adding in additional work.
Also to keep things fair to those that pledged early for the Limited sets, if extra slots DO open up, it'd be price higher then the original to make it fair for earlier supporters. Kate and I are so touched by everyone's interest and support and just want to say Thanks again!.Last updated:
