Each poem stands on its own merit and is supported by the context of the others: 3 books
Each poem is meant to be savored and meant to be shared: a postcard to accompany each book
Each poem is an invitation for connection: a love letter yearning & offering a sense of place, agency, and healing
Who is the Artist?
My name is 杰意. You may call me Jiéyì or Jay. I was born on Lunar New Year in the Year of the Sheep in Nagoya, Japan to a Chinese mother and an American father. I am a queer & trans artist, educator, and activist. Trifecta is my story: a story that bridges 3 cultures. It is also an invitation to be our story: a story for inspiration, connection, and community.
Goals & Stretch Goals
Initial Goal: $2000
Print 100 saddle stitch with square back 5.5x8.5 books of each poem and an accompanying postcard for each book. Each page is illustrated with beautiful black & white ink drawings.
Stretch Goal: $3000
I would love to also print a larger version of Trifecta as an all-in-1 coloring book with intro & context for each poem. This option will be available as a reward after we complete our initial goal. We can also do a larger print run at this time.
Risks and challenges
As of launching this project, poems are written and I have illustrated drafts of each poem. Since starting the project, I've designed each of the postcards. The next step is working on page layouts and editing images. The biggest risks & challenges may be a delay in shipping if the process takes longer than I anticipate. I'll keep y'all in the loop.
