Thank you for visiting our kickstarter page!
Created in June 2011, 789 Studio is made by a handful of talented BFA Cartooning and Illustration graduates that wanted to make something of themselves after graduating from SVA and learning comics from the industry’s best and beloved teachers and professionals. Comics and illustrations are our passion and we all agreed that we wanted to keep pursuing our dreams in the art field. With that, we decided to put our efforts together to create the first anthologies of many to come.
We are working on a book titled Rain.
Rain, the droplets of water that falls from the sky, has different meanings and perception. To some, it means some kind of miraculous action that cannot be explained; while to others, it’s a scientific motion that occurs in our atmosphere. Even some people think nothing of rain while in literary terms, it means despair or new beginnings. With the wide range of perception, our artist wanted to express their view on rain. Every artist worked on a short story that somehow involves rain, no matter how big or small.
We have over 20 artists contributing to the book, from contributing artists to editors. This book will contain 200 pages of vivid, full color comics and illustrations and will be paper back bound.
By now, you are wondering why you should invest in this project. The money for this project will all go to printing of Rain. Printing this book in full color is very expensive and as of right now, we have little funds as of right now. This book will benefit not only those who buy it but to the artist themselves. Selling their artwork is one thing but knowing people are enjoying it is another. Please donate to this worthy cause. This is the dream of many and in my heart and mind, I believe these artist can make it happen.
These are the artist partaking in this project:
Andrea Agostini, Nana An, Megan Brennan, Jean Calderone, Haemi Choung, Rel, Shauna Grant, Emily Hu, DaYoung Jung, Jemma Kalish, Yura Kim, Bo Ae Lee, Amy Lorenz, Mike Lukas, Jon Mosely, Robert Richberg, Julian Rowe, Maggie Siegel-Berele, Sylvia Yi, Steve Yurko, Manuela Saenz, Kelsey Gait Donald
