THE SKINNY

This is ALL-NEW MATERIAL that will take two years to complete.  I will post my progress on a blog that's accessible to all who donate.  I will travel back to Boston for research purposes (& lobster rolls).  I will hire the graphic designer who did my early K Chronicles books.  I will self-publish and seek distribution through one of the fine publishers I've worked with in the past.

Thanks in advance to everyone who donates (especially my mom)!  And thanks to Kickstarter for taking this D.I.Y. thing to a whole 'nother level!

Cheers!

Keith Knight (gentleman cartoonist)
