Hello Starlight! Welcome to Beach City: Gemcation, a Steven Universe fan zine! Beach City: Gemcation is an art zine full of wonderful illustrations including your favourite cannon characters as well as some original characters! There will 15 artists per season (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter). 

Our zine will be a limited printing (only being printed once) featuring 64 pages of art. Our initial goal will be the zine and that will unlock at $3,700. The book will be a perfect soft cover measuring 8.5" x 11". It will be full colour pages with a glossy finish. After the zine is completely funded, we will begin funding the merch!

 This zine will be 8.5" x 11" with a perfect soft cover, pages in full colour and a glossy finish. There are 64 pages of art, 15 artists per season, one full page spread per season, and credits of all of the artists in the back in order by page. All artwork for the zine is completed.

Special Thanks To:

To you who is reading this!! Thank you so much for taking time to look at, share, and/or pledge to our Kickstarter! 

Risks and challenges

This will be my first Kickstarter, but my partner KeikiiArt has run three successful Kickstarter campaigns. I have worked hard to make sure everything was calculated and thought out thoroughly. We'll both make sure to be as clear as possible with our backers and keep you all informed through updates as the campaign develops.

Delays in manufacturing are beyond our control, we will do our best to communicate via updates! However, we are confident in getting everything to you in a timely manner!
