About

Quickstarter: Tiernan & Patrick enamel pins!

$792

21

Hey all! My name is Erin Ptah, I make webcomics, and I promised supporters on Patreon that once there were 50 of them, I would make pins.

We're starting with the top 2 designs voted on by readers -- 1 critter from each comic. Read on to find out more about the characters, or keep scrolling to see the pins!

The Comics

But I'm A Cat Person: Two ordinary graduates adopt a puppy…which turns out to be a magical shapeshifting battle monster. Now one of them is involved in a soul-binding ownership contract, rich and powerful people are lurking around looking to challenge them, and they still can’t find any companies that are hiring. 

Patrick is our starring shapeshifter. He's nervous, determined, eager to please, and always ready to show off his prowess in a fight! ...much to the distress of his new pacifist millennial Master.

 Leif & Thorn: Sparkly queer bilingual fantasy comedy. Dragonslaying hero Thorn Estragon and his team of loyal knights are assigned to guard a foreign embassy; Leif works there as a gardener, serving his native Sønheim in order to pay off a mysterious debt. Thorn doesn’t  speak Leif’s language too well when they first meet — but he’s about to  find a lot of reasons to learn.  

Tiernan is Thorn's soulbonded therapy cat. She provides emotional support, help recovering from PTSD flashbacks, and general adorableness. Also, she cuddles up to Leif at every opportunity.

  •  10.0% - Kickstarter fees

What's Next?

Even if you pledge early, you won't be charged until the end of the campaign, and only if the funding goal is reached! So if you don't want to miss out on a limited reward tier, pledge early.

When the project ends, you'll be sent a Kickstarter survey that asks for your delivery address, and any other information I need.

Digital rewards will be sent once Kickstarter transfers the funds, which takes about 2 weeks after the end of the campaign.

Physical rewards will be shipped when they arrive, probably within 6-8 weeks.

In the meantime, you can stay up-to-date reading But I'm A Cat Person or Leif & Thorn. You can also get the ebooks on Gumroad, and if you miss the original Kickstarter, you'll be able to get pins later by supporting the artist on Patreon.

Thanks for reading, and scroll back up to follow the project, or to preorder your pins!

Risks and challenges

This is my first time creating pins, but I have a 100% fulfillment record on Kickstarters for other products, and I'm using a company that's trusted by experienced pin-makers!

The digital rewards are already created and ready to go -- it's just a matter of getting and shipping the pins. If there are any unexpected delays, I'll keep you updated until they're resolved.
