Introduction

Hello! My name is Aoife and I am an Illustration student at UCA Farnham. From the end of March, I am going to be studying abroad in Nagoya, Japan for 4 and a half months. So far, I have managed to save up enough money to pay for my accommodation and flight tickets, but I still need to be able to cover my living costs whilst I'm there. This is where you come in! I am looking to raise £500 so that I can eat, drink, sightsee and generally enjoy my time there.

Pledges and Rewards

Here is a breakdown of all the rewards I'm offering:

  • Postcard: In order to thank you for your support, as well as keep you in the loop, I will send you a hand written postcard from Japan. This will most likely be sent within the first few weeks of my arrival, but I'm sure I'll have a lot to tell you all!
  • 'Ruff and Tumble' Zine: This is a Zine that I made which features hand-stamping, rubber stamping, digital printing, lino printing and polyester litho printing. It is filled with images of dogs that I made, as well as facts about man's best friend. Each zine is signed and numbered, and is neatly wrapped in a poo-bag (unused).

Reach Goal

£750: Should I reach this extraordinary amount, I will set up a youtube channel and vlog my entire experience in Japan. Having never done a vlog in my life, I can guarantee that it will be interesting in one way or another.

Thank you for visiting my Kickstarter campaign, and if you have any questions, please, do not hesitate to ask!

Risks and challenges

There is only one risk that I can see to this whole project and that is my Visa not going through. I'm doing my best to overcome this by not committing any crimes ever and therefore drastically increasing my chances of getting a visa.
