Faux Life is a graphic novel of approximately 88 pages. This project is to fund the creation and printing of Part 1, the first 22 pages of the story. The full set of storyboards have been written and delivered to the artist, Robert Baumer - a.k.a. Soussherpa. His artwork is amazing...
Victoria has just moved to a new town with her family. She has the peculiar ability to grant temporary life to inanimate objects but does not know what to do with this talent. As she tries to fit in with others during her first year in high school, she must decide who to befriend and how to control her ability.

Risks and challenges
There are few risks for this project. A contract is already in place with the artist and a printing company has already been chosen. It is possible for there to be delays in the delivery date if the artist becomes busy with other projects. If the artist is unable to complete the work, another artist with a similar style and talent will have to be found. If the printing company is unable to complete the print order or raises its prices, another company must be found to complete the job. These days, there are many high quality choices for digital printing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
