My name is Jose Pimienta. I'm raising money to get my first creator-own graphic novel printed. I've had the fortune of working on other graphic novels along with great writers and have contributed to anthologies working on adapted material. But this one is both written and illustrated by me.
With the money raised I plan to get the book printed as well as pay those who contributed along the way. (Pre-press, The Videographer and the contributing artists who are featured at the end of the book.)
Suncatcher is a personal project that tells the story of a young musician in Mexicali in the early 2000s. When she discovers her grandfather's soul is trapped inside his old guitar, she takes it upon herself to find a way to save him. Meanwhile, she also aims to be in a unique local band with big dreams to be part of the current movement of bands across the country of Mexico.
The book is complete. This kickstarter will simply put the book in the backer's hands and compensate those who lent a helping hand.

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk in not seeing the project successful is that I will have to find other ways to get this book printed. but with Self-promotion I hope to gain people's interest.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
