About this project

I do not own rights to the term Poptart. Nor do I have permission from all of the original creators of TKO the comic book passed around in middle school that loosely inspired this creation. 

I have no intention of selling this comic for profit. I will be giving it out for free by posting it on my blog Kateelore.com. I would like to finish it for my own satisfaction and to perhaps start building a name for myself.

This is a time consuming project so any money that can help me pay bills can help me to get this done. I also need new pens and a new laptop.

The Evil pop-tart had once been the evil villain of TKO. Now he finds his former enemies are grown and could care less about him. He struggles to find meaning as he stumbles drunkenly through life.

It is humorous, dark, depressing, hopeful and... melancholy.

The episodes will average 6 to 8 panels long. There will be some that are longer. All together I want to do about 30 total. I have almost all of these sketched out. The plot is mapped I don't "wing it" with art. 

The pen and ink technique I use is very time consuming. I think it gives a unique and gritty touch so I will stick with this more strenuous method. I am also developing carpel tunnel so I've given myself a year on this project. Stick with me IT WILL BE FINISHED. I've finished a more ambitious comic in a year so I know I can do this carpel tunnel aside.

Any support and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Love,

Kate

Risks and challenges

TIME! Crippling arthritis and carpel tunnel. I am seriously developing both of these in my hands but I'm 26 so it's not too bad yet.
