About this project
What's all this?
Em is a comic about keeping it together in the 21st century. It follows Em on her quest to keep her income, love life, weight and alcohol intake under some sort of control.
Em has featured in numerous newspapers and magazines in the UK and abroad, including thelondonpaper and the Sun in the UK and in Sweden's Aftonbladet.
You can check out the back catalogue at: http://www.emcartoons.com/, or why not join Em on facebook! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Em-Cartoons/148180005208895
Who are you?
Well here I am back in my glory days. I'm still fond of stuffing my face and I also enjoy my job as a freelance cartoonist, illustrator and writer.
Where is the money going?
I've been creating Em for a while now and would love to start putting the strips together in a series of books, starting with Em Volume I. This would be a 90 page, full colour, soft back comic book, containing early strips previously published in thelondonpaper as well as some other bits and bobs, photos, sketches, etc.
The strips are all ready to go and I have a great printer lined up, all I need is the financial backing to cover the printing, the isbn number and fees on here.
What's in it for us?
To the right (and up a bit) you'll be able to see a list of pledges from £1-£100. Every penny pledged will warrant my wild appreciation and you will also receive some nice goodies if the project goes ahead. These range from a virtual kiss for a quid (right on the mouth, mind) to personalised artwork with YOU in it. The £15 pledge essentially works as a pre-order, with the added benefit of receiving a signed copy
Just a final thank you. Your interest and feedback is what's driven me every inch of the way here. I owe you. x
Risks and challenges
Em Volume I is my first kickstarter project, my first Em book and also my first self publishing project! It's a steep learning curve, but incredibly exciting and fun. The plan is that if this goes well, I will embark on Em Volume II and so on until all my strips are available in book form.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
