About this project

OK this project is a lifetime dream that I'm trying to make happen.  I've always been interested in drawing in the Japanese anime/manga style and have always wanted to create my own manga (even though I'm clearly not Japanese).  For those of you who don't know, a manga is a Japanese-styled comic book that is characterized by pretty artwork and characters drawn in a sort of caricatured form, typically with over-exaggerated eyes.  In comparison to American comics (ie- DC and Marvel), they tend to be far less detailed but still maintain the appearance of the character.  Now I know you're wondering why I'm trying to raise $800, right? Well self-publishing for @ least 10 books is not cheap, plus I need to get some new supplies for actually drawing out my manga and my characters.  I intend, for my first book, to make it a collection of 3 or 4 one-shots (or short stories) and then I'll take a poll on my DeviantArt: idraw91.deviantart.com on which one the readers like best; the one with the most votes is the one I will continue working with.

I plan to do all this by using on online publishing website to create 10 copies of my book.  Then, I'll contact bigger publishers like Oni Press and DC and try to sell them on my book.  With their help, I'll finally be able to produce my manga and continue working with my art!!  However.... If I am not successful in raising funds by the end of the 60 days, I will just have to resort to uploading pages online and will probably never be able to get it published...
