Meet Me:

Hi, I'm Brian Gordon, creator of Fowl Language, a comic about the joys and frustrations of parenting (mostly the frustrations).  

I was a greeting card artist for 18 years who ended up jobless - and the support from my amazing fans allowed me to keep my childhood dream of being a cartoonist alive.  They kept my children alive, too (they need food), and their generous support continues to help make that happen.  

With the release of my book last year, and a new book and calendar coming in 2018, I've been looking for the next phase in bringing my comics to life.  That's where this Kickstarter comes in: I'm making plushes!  

Meet the Ducks:

Aren't they cute?  They're cuddly, super squishy, and as my daughter says, "don't mess them up," 'cause you're going to want to keep them around for a long time!   

 These little guys are costly to make, so I need your help to raise funds to design, create and get them into your arms. Anything raised over the initial $28,000.00 goal results in tons of fun bonus prizes for you!  Check it out:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

I don't just want to do this, I want to do this right! That's why I'm partnering with the best in all aspects of their creation to make sure they are: A) super cute and cuddly B) quality items C) shipped to you in a timely-manner.

I already have quality prototypes from a trusted vendor. And I'm working with my buddy Nick Seluk and the Awkward Yeti team, who've already run their own Kickstarter (and who have lots of experience, creating and distributing great products). Because of this, I'm confident that this process will run smoothly. I'll keep you in the loop, so check back often for updates. I really appreciate your support!
