Loyal Li begins his career with $300k+ in student loans and no clients whatsoever. Poor pup! He can't help but be jealous of the handsome, successful, very handsome vampire entrepreneur just down the hall...
APPEAL! Pilot is the 40-page beginning of their relationship.
APPEAL! is a pet project of mine that I started in 2017. It has lots of things that I love -- such as pretty monster boys in love and magical girls -- all in an action-packed YA rom-com.
I compiled a collection of illustrations, sketches, and concept art into the first APPEAL! zine, which was 20 pages and in full color. It debuted at SPX 2017 and has since gone out of print. In 2018, I ran a little project for the Kickstarter Make 100 Event to produce 100 silkscreen prints of the APPEAL! characters. Afterwards, I was so inspired by the interest they received that I made a second zine called APPEAL! Redux. Redux is almost 50 pages of newer concept art, illustrations, sketches, and comics, and it's one of my bestsellers.
APPEAL! Pilot is, as the name suggests, my first step into making it a comic series. In this Kickstarter, you'll have the opportunity to not only get the Pilot, but also the Redux, the silkscreen print, and the original zine!
Risks and challenges
The interiors of the book are done and laid out! We've priced a run with two different vendors for both the book and the charms, and we have a partner lined up for fulfillment! Hiccups could occur during the manufacturing process or with the original art pieces, but I'll keep you posted on how those progress once the campaign ends!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
