About

Let's create 100 limited edition signed and numbered books featuring my illustrated Sad Fish. Kickstarter's Make 100 incentive inspired me to draw 100 Sad Fish and compile them into a book showcasing all the depressed, hopeless, and tragic water friends I've been dreaming of. These books are limited to an edition of 100 and will never be reprinted.

I've been drawing Sad Fish in my sketchbooks for many years now and people enjoy their bittersweet pain at the comic conventions I exhibit at. Now is the time to finally produce the Sad Fish menagerie that makes people happy!

Let's talk rewards!

This is a simple Kickstarter -- we only have two reward levels.

With your $12 pledge of support, you receive one limited edition signed and numbered book with one original Sad Fish art piece in a clear toploader protective sleeve.

Surprise! Which fish will you get? It will be a mystery, but we can verify that your fish will be sad! Don't miss this opportunity to acquire a rare, one-of-a-kind ink drawing on paper.

At the $30 level I will draw you, your friend, or family member as a Sad Fish based on a photograph you supply. You will receive the original line art on paper and a color digital avatar.

Sad Fish are here to make you happy!

Here's what to do if you need the $12 and $30 level: Click or tap to pledge at the $12 level. Then type $42 (or more if you feel inclined) in the pledge amount. That way we know you are also asking for an original commission. The $12 level is limited at 100 pledges, so that guarantees you receive a book and original Sad Fish art. 

Here's what to do if you want two or more custom commission Sad Fish: Click or tap to pledge at the $30 level. Then type $60 in the pledge amount. That way we know you are requesting two original commissions. Add $30 for each face you want Carolyn to turn into a Sad Fish.

Thank you for considering the Sad Fish Make 100 project. I hope we can work together to make it happen!

Risks and challenges

I've run a successful Kickstarter campaign in the past. The book printer I plan to work with is located in the United States and I have used them before. I am dependable and have been publishing my own books for several years. If we run into any problems along the way, backers will be kept in-the-loop of project status.
