 Hello and thank you for dropping by! Our names are Kanae Fukuda and Jillian Altmeyer and we are the illustrators behind Nyanzilla and Squidbrains. This Kickstarter project was made to help us branch out more with products that we offer as pins.  If you are interested in seeing either of our bodies of work individually, please check out the links below. Thank you so much for helping us make these pins come to life!

Risks and challenges

We have already taken the time to work with five different manufacturers to find one that would fit best with our needs and this project. The manufacturer that we are working with, Jillian has made multiple goods with during their six months of manufacturing. Because of the past work, we have formed a good relationship with our manufacturer and figured out the flow of their process and how to work most effectively.

We don't anticipate any major risks, however, we also understand that there's always the chance of delays in production and longer than expected shipping with overseas manufacturers. For this reason, we have added extra time padding into the project, just in case. Aside from that, we believe that we will be able to get through this project without any major problems but if anything does happen, we will keep our awesome backers updated.

What we do need is your support to bring this project to life! We have already finished the artwork and have them ready to send to our manufacturer to be made into pins. Now all we need is your help to fund this project and make it a reality. Thank you so much for helping us in our indie business adventures and for choosing to support the arts!
