Update #5

100$ off many of the larger scale thank you gifts, 3 DAYS LEFT!

Comment

This weekend has seen tremendous support from folks backing the project, thank you thank you! We are now at 78% of our goal, which is about 30% more than we were last thursday -- AWESOME!! To stay on track we NEED to keep up that pace AND we only have 3 days left to raise another 2,000$! 

If you are on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, or wherever: PLEASE share this project on your page and let folks know about it. We need another 100+ supporters to make this book happen! To help tempt folks, I have cut off 100$ from all the "Date with an Artist" levels; shaved off 50$ from Joseph Remnant's Harvey Pekar original comic strip (it's framed too, check the previous update!); added 2 more artists in the "date" roster, Simon Stromberg and Hedwig Vinson. Hopefully this will help sway some hearts and minds to throw down some cash...

Below we have a look at Alex Fukui's awesome print that you get for donating 5$ and up (in addition to Hedwig Vinson's cool print previewed in the previous update!). 

Christopher Butcher has posted his first draft for the foreword online on his site, Comics 212

In case you've missed it, I have continued to post interviews with the artists in Little Heart over at Itchy Keen; so far we have ones with Alex Fukui, MariNaomi, Chris Adams, Michael DeForge, Kate Craig + Emily Carroll, Jeremy Sorese, Maurice Vellekoop, Ed Choy. Check 'em out!

Thanks, as always, for everything!! All my best, raighne

    A copy of LH signed by ALL of the artists -- which could be a little laborious as the artists live in Japan, India, England, the US, and Canada. In addition, you will get 10 non-signed, but still killer copies of LH, the buttons, the cards, the prints AND an original water color sketch, housed in a tote bag designed by Emma Reynolds.
