When I was in high school I fell in love with those little one inch buttons the size of a quarter. I’ve always thought they were fun & awesome & made some whenever I had an excuse to. Lately I’ve been trying to make some to spread the word about some of my friends’ art. So I got seven artists to each design five Christmas themed pins in their own styles & degrees of whimsy. You can back your favorite artist to get their buttons (or magnets or zipper pulls at the same size) or get a random set or get them all. After expenses any additional money will be going out to the artists & getting artists buttons to sell at their own local appearances this Christmas season. Thanks for your interest & support.

About the artists:
Jason Young is predominantly a comic artist. I’ve been friends with him for about four years. He currently lives in Dayton, OH.
Chelsea Fields is a painter from Detroit. I’ve been friends with her a few months. She currently lives in Carrboro, NC.
Joe Badon is predominantly a comic artist. I’ve been friends with him for three or four years. He currently lives in Slidell, LA.
J.M. Hunter is predominantly a comic artist. I’ve been friends with him three or four years. He currently lives in Washington, IL.
Joeseph Simon is predominantly a graphic designer. I’ve been friends with him a few months. He currently lives in Lakewood, OH.
Evette Langford is predominantly a jewelry & doll maker. I’ve been friends with her a few months. She currently lives in Columbus, OH.
Brian John Mitchell is predominantly a comic artist occasionally delving into abstract painting & photography. He is me. He currently resides in Raleigh, NC.

STRETCH GOAL: If we make it to $500, I will make another themed set of pins from artist friends for Valentine’s Day. Also, at that point each artist will probably get enough money to buy some gifts somewhere besides the dollar store.

A couple people have asked what the zipper pulls & magnets look like.  Hopefully these will give you an idea.

Risks and challenges

I got a printer that I’m happy with the quality of. I’ve got a button maker that I’m happy with that I can crank out a thousand buttons a day on. I’ve got the bubble envelopes & ship things out regularly. So things should go pretty smooth.
