STRETCH GOALS:

$600 - *UNLOCKED* KickStarter-exclusive mini-print "Ratatosk the Squirrel Spirit" for backers.

$700 - Set of 3 witch-themed bookmarks for backers.

The Witches came in the month of October,
Bewitching my feeds on Facebook and Tumblr,
Gracing my sketchbook with lines and ink
Inspiring others to like and to think.
I skipped "official" Inktober to draw some witches
Because the feed could not satisfy my itches
To draw pagans and dancers young and old,
And the promises of stories wanting to be told
By the figures I drew on the page.

Hello! My name is Kelci Crawford. I'm a comic artist, illustrator, and lover of poems (if you're familiar with Johnson & Sir, one of my previous comics/KickStarter campaigns, you may be familiar with my silly haiku).

Last month I made sketches for my own version of Inktober, and now these sketches are compiled into Witches: The Sketchbook. I'm here today to ask for some funding to make print copies of this book happen.

Now, this isn't my first KickStarter rodeo - previously there was Seeing Him, Johnson & Sir, Thoughtful Dinosaur, and the Validation Buttons. That last one went so far beyond the asking goal that the Validation Sketchbook got into print! So, I've printed books before, and the book printer I go to is set to print Witches: The Sketchbook. It just needs your help to get there.

Here's what's needed:

  • $150 for an ISBN and barcode
  • $70 for printing book copies
  • $35 for set-up fees with the printer
  • $180 for shipping costs
  • $65 for any surprise fees

What are some things you can get in exchange for backing? Well, check out your options in the sidebar! Options include copies of the book, PDFs, mini-prints, and even the original sketches!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I can answer them in the FAQ below.

If you can give, that's tremendous! If you're broke, please share this campaign with your witch-loving friends. Every bit helps.

Thank you so much.

You. Are. Awesome.

Risks and challenges

Challenge #1 - The Book Printer Is Running Late! What do?

Oh I've encountered this before with the Johnson & Sir KickStarter. What I've learned has already been implemented with Witches: The Sketchbook - I've talked to the printer ahead of time, not just to get the quote, but to send the necessary files over to them to print. The intent is that by the time the KickStarter wraps up, the book will just be waiting for the green light (aka the final day of the campaign to end) to go to print.

Challenge #2 - Shipping Rewards in a Timely Way

What took so long in previous KickStarters wasn't just delays in getting books printed - it was getting commissions and other hand-made rewards done in a timely manner. Slowing down in producing the hand-made rewards meant slowing down shipment of those rewards. To that end, no commissions or sketch cards are being offered in this campaign.
