Positivity & Negativity 

Welcome to my campaign for the second Socially Awkward Misfit comic book!

If you're not familiar with the comic, it's about an introverted, anxious, awkward misfit. It's loosely based on my own life and humorously deals with the issues introverts have to deal with.

 

You can see more of the comic here: www.sociallyawkwardmisfit.com

It's been 2 years already since my last successful Kickstarter campaign where I published my first comic book 'A Day in the Life of Socially Awkward Misfit'. 

This new book will feature a brand new SAM story, called Positivity & Negativity (also the title of the book). Sam's positive and negative thoughts manifest themselves as different versions of himself. 

It humorously touches on issues surrounding anxiety and depression, and how negative thoughts contribute to these disorders. 

The first two panels.

 Sam battles his negativity, with the help of his positivity. But it isn't easy. So, is there a way that Sam can overcome his negativity once and for all? 

 This new and exclusive story will be 11 pages plus a compilation of the last two years of SAM comics giving a total of around 50 pages. 

The comic will be full colour, measuring 210 x 148 mm (A5), saddle stitched with 300GSM Silk cover.

Goodies!

Here's what you can get for helping to make this book a reality:

£2 PDF version of the book which you can view on your device. I'll send you a link to download it.

£4 PDF of the new book and PDF of the first book, 'A Day in the Life of Socially Awkward Misfit', which has an exclusive story plus a compilation of the first two years of SAM. (2013 - 2015).

£6 The new SAM book, Positivity & Negativity, delivered to your home. Featuring the exclusive story plus a compilation of comics from 2015 - 2017. 

£8 The new SAM book, plus the two PDFs.  

£10 A signed copy of the book, with a thank you note.  

£15 A hand drawn sketch of Sam inside the book thanking you personally for making the book come to life.  

£20 Signed copies of the new book and the first book, 'A Day in the Life of Socially Awkward Misfit', and a Sam doodle thanking you personally in the new book.

£25 Signed copies of both books, and Sam doodles giving thanks in both books, plus the two PDF versions.

£45 A signed, hand drawn SAM comic strip, sent to you with the signed / doodled book. Plus the signed first book, 'A Day in the life of Socially Awkward Misfit'. Plus both PDFs.

Examples

 £60 I will draw a digital caricature of you, or anyone else you like! Email me some photos of the intended person and I will do some sketches and email them to make sure I have a good likeness. I will make any changes needed,then when you are happy, I'll paint it digitally and email you the finished high resolution image. 

Some examples of my caricatures:

 

  

More examples on my website here: rosshendrick.co.uk/caricatures

Alternatively, I can also do a pop surrealism digital painting in this kind of style:

 

 

 Plus a signed/doodled copy of the book & both PDFs.

£150 Basically everything already mentioned on here! A digital caricature / illustration, commission a cartoon / comic, a hand drawn SAM comic, a thank you printed at the start of the book, both books doodled and signed, plus the two PDFs.

So, hopefully there will be something on there you like. If I don't reach my goal, then the comic book won't get made, and you will be refunded.

But hopefully that won't happen. Let's get it printed :)

 

Risks and challenges

I've just completed the Positivity & Negativity story, so now I just have to put the compilation together.

I guess the only risk would be if there is a problem with the printers, if they don't print / send them quickly. But I will be using the same printers as I did for the first book, so I am fairly confident things should go ok. :)
