About

Greetings Kickstarter!

I’m Ben Lee, comic book writer and artist of LOST IN THE MIDDLE. Recently, I’ve gotten a little obsessed with making soft-enamel pins. It all started over dinner with some friends, where one started talking about his love for enamel pins. Hearing him talk about it, I couldn’t help but think, “Why not?” 

 So I put out an enamel pin, THE NINJA. And I had SO MUCH FUN making it! In addition to the fun, I couldn’t help but feel a little nostalgic from my childhood with family ski trips. Every time we went, the gift shop would have a huge selection of enamel pins, and my parents would always get me one each trip. And that just added to the drive to make more! 

The only problem, they’re a little expensive to make. 

Enter Kickstarter. 

So why call this, “Brain Fart”? Well, as I started thinking about a theme for the set, I came up blank… or what I came up with wasn’t working for me… you know, basically had a brain fart creatively. So I went with more of a sketchbook approach, seeing where sketching in Illustrator took me, and came up with a handful of pin ideas I thought would be really cool to make: 

SPACEMAN 

RAYGUN 

Pin Specs:

  • 1.5” soft-enamel pin
  • 4 colors
  • raised black metal
  • metal clasp
  • backer card

Goodies: 

Backing this Kickstarter will also give you a chance to get an 8”x10” illustrated print* featuring the art of one of the pins. 

*Final art subject to change... but not by much. :)

Stretch Goals: 

In the event I hit & pass my original goal, I do have some stretch goals planned. Here’s some teases… 

 

Thank you so much for visiting! And please remember, EVERY little bit helps. Be it a share, or a $1. It all helps!

Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

The major challenge here is that there are a few projects going right now. Be it freelance, commission, or pet projects. But I did timeline this out, so barring any unforeseen hiccups along the way, shipment for this should be relatively smooth and quick as all artwork is completed and the rewards are kept simple to lessen any potential issues.

If there are any questions that come up, however, I'll be more than happy to answer them.
