You are contributing to our goal of publishing our digital comic " A Teddy Bears Dream".

Here are a few pics of the first pages of the book, this is just a small sample of the first 30 pages that will be in issue #1 (not to include the thank you pages we will be adding for all the backers of this project).

Again these are just a few samples of actual penciled pages done by myself.

The book has been completly penciled and is in the process of being inked as I speak. Color will be the last step and that should start within the next 30 days.

This book will be distributed through Amazon with a link from our website to purchase once the book is complete and uploaded to Amazon.

The book itself is about a Teddy Bear who is dreaming he is a super hero bear.

His goal:  to get home to the one he loves most, Chelsy his owner, after a weird and unfortunate accident he is lost in the wilderness far from home only to wake up alone and a daily fight against every peril that the wilderness has to offer, only to eventually find another bear(female) in the wild that has him conflicted on whether to stay with her or head home where he thinks he belongs.

We originally did preliminary sketches that were alot more cartoony and all digital through Manga Studio but the story has evolved to what you see on the pages above. I felt like the art was not representative of my capabilities in illustration and story telling, so we went with pencil on origianal bristol comic boards and the difference is astounding. After much consideration we also decided it would be smarter not to head to direct print media until we establish our audience though digital means as cost would be to much to bare for myself and my family.

After the initial launch this will be a semi-monthly book.

We were also looking at a younger target audience but after finishing the first script we decided that the target audience will be more for teens to adults, as the second script was finished we knew that this is for more teens and adults. The cute cuddley idea of a Teddy Bear has taken a back seat to a KICK ASS hero who does whatever is needed to end this nightmare of a trip.

We are about 60% done on issue one and need your help to finish, so anything you can contribute would be greatly appreciated and you will have our eternal thanks!

Here is one of my web comics that is a on going volume project, each volume consist of 5-8 pages.

Risks and challenges

The challenges that most projects face are deadlines, push backs and such, the easiest way to nullify this is to keep your project guidline straight and don't veer from that line. The other is making sure your rewards are met, so most of the deadlines on rewards are set to close to book launch we will keep everyone up to date with what is going on with their rewards and we should be able to get them to you long before the book gets to its final destination of Amazon.
