A 200 page anthology showcasing 21 different artists with foreign backgrounds all writing and creating their own slice of life comics.

What is Ordinary Days?

“Ordinary Days” is an artist driven book showcasing 21 artists creating their own ‘slice of life’ stories.  These stories are relatable to everyone because the events that are captured are often seen or lived through.  Each story is based on a real life occasion that happened around the artists or someone they know. In comparison to fantasy based stories ‘slice of life’ does not need metaphors or fantastical elements to create an engaging environment and story.

“Ordinary Days” is a 200-page book showcasing 21 black and white stories by 21 professional comic artists.  The printed book will be in 9" x 6" format with a color cover including French flaps.  This makes it to where the cover does not curl over time.  Most of the money will be going towards printing because it is so expensive.  With the help of Kickstarter, we hope to raise all the money. All the backers will get great rewards for the money they donate. Thank you so much, without you this wouldn't be possible.

The Editor

Marissa Mozek, is the editor of “Ordinary Days” and is making sure everyone gets all of their work done on time with out any hitches.  She is a senior at Savannah College of Art and Design majoring in Sequential art.  While there, she has been working with a variety of artists, but when she developed severe tendonitis she knew she would have to do something a little differently.  She wanted to do something that would involve other artists and show that she could manage and organize them, thus “Ordinary Days” came to be.

What's in it for me?

The most important question. “Ordinary Days” is a project that will let comic lovers and other artists be able to buy a beautiful black and white book.  This book is one of a kind and is made with love because each artist, whether they have a background in comics or illustration, is putting their all into each story. This book will not be sold at any bookstore or on amazon.  The only places you will see it is here on Kickstarter or at Conventions.  Kickstarter is the only place where you can also get wonderful art along with “Ordinary Days”.  Please look at the incentives on the right side of the page for these awesome offers.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With any project, risks and challenges are always present. As editor of the project I am trying to make sure that if problems do arise they are fixed as quickly as possible.

One of the risks is that the pages are being created during the Kickstarter. If an artist is unable to complete their work, which should not happen, I have four other artists working in tandem on their slice of life stories.

The last of the problems is printing. I will be working with the printing company as closely as possibly to make sure that there are no problems. This is one variable that is out of my control.

Shipping should not be a problem, but at times the mail does lose things. I will do my best to work with the backers to make sure they get their incentives.
