About this project

This project is to fund the publishing of Big Plans number 5, an autobiographical comic book. Through these stories I explore fears, anxieties, phobias, and contradictions based on my experiences. I make highly readable comics so that when you pick up the book, you cannot put it down until you are finished.

This book is a labor of love; I do my best to make it enjoyable to read while remaining true to the stories that inspire the work. The book is relatively small in dimension (4.5 x 6 inches) in order to fit your hands better and create a more intimate reading experience.

Big Plans number 5 took 8 months to write, draw, and edit. All pre-production on the book is finished. The next step is the printer and then finally, shipping a copy, and maybe more to you.

For the printing I will use a local printer called Brown Printing, in Portland, Oregon, putting your money back into my home town's economy. I will use 100% P.C.W. recycled paper for the printing of the book as to minimize the environmental impact of publishing. The printing of the book is limited to 700 copies. The cover will be full-color with a crisp black and white interior.

The money raised here is specifically to cover the cost of printing. Any money made from selling copies of the book will go right back to cover shipping costs and into funding my next project.
