With your support, we can push the campaign to be even bigger and better with new stretch goals! You can also help us greatly by spreading the words of the campaign! Thank you!!

You guys asked for it! and here it is! Please check Update #9 for details regarding Add-ons.

For those that're confused on how to purchase add-on for the pledge, I've created a mini FAQ and hopefully clarify it a bit.

For anyone that doesn't know, What is HJ-Story?

It all started as little doodles for my girlfriend (now wife), over time it became a large collection of artwork drawn over the last 4+ years, illustrating our thoughts and stories. 

HJ-Story are little stories of heart-warming stories to warm your soul, with over 300+ pieces and still growing everyday, it's time for us to create the 3rd installment of the series!  This book will remind you of the magic of love!

HJ-Story Volume 3!

Vol.3 Mockup
Vol.3 Mockup

The size of the book will be 7" x 7" HARDCOVER, printed on premium paper! 

Vol.3 will be 180+ pages thick (30+ more than Vol. 1 or 2!).
It'll contain 100+ images, including some never-before-seen artworks, thoughts and stories behind episodes!

 HJS: ORIGIN will be 50+ page* behind the scene book showing the many artworks in its original form before they were redrawn for Vol.1.

*Actual number of pages might vary slightly as the book layout is complete.

Featuring origin versions of drawings, various sketch and WIP of episodes, and mini background stories of how it all first started!

See update #4 for more sticker photos!

Vol.1 & 2 are 150 pages each. Many that missed the last kickstarter asked for a reprint of Hardcover Vol.1 & 2 and here is your chance to grab it all! (Being a reprint, It will not be numbered like the previous limited Kickstarter version)

Reward Packages!

Please note below images are mockup images of final product.

*I realized there's a small confusion in the reward description for the name in book credit.  Yes all backer will have their name AND their love one's name credit at the back of the book! :)

*Shipping fee not included, will be automatically calculated during pledge!

*For commission set, I'll be gathering detail information for the commission at the end of the campaign.  We'll work hard to finish the commissions as soon as we can but please understand that there it might take a little bit of time.  (Hopefully if you're waiting, you can enjoy the book(s) in the mean time!)

The books are estimated to ship in mid-late March.
All orders would be shipped via Priority Air Mail.

(Est. 2-4 weeks depending on destination country, please understand in some rare cases there may unexpected delay during transit)

If you'd like to arrange for express delivery, please message me separately so I can calculate the shipping price difference for your destination.  Thank you!

I just realized kickstarter now has a built in FAQ, so all the questions and answers will be updated in the FAQ below! :D

Risks and challenges

With previous experience with HJStory Vol.1 & 2 Kickstarter, we've learned a lot and is confident in doing better. The only risk we foresee would be unexpected delay with production and shipping, but you can be sure that we'll keep everyone up to date with all status!
