Bad Influence Zine - Inspired By Frida Issue

$1,412

38

Bad Influence is a zine I've published since 2004. Each issue focuses on a single theme, and includes work from a variety of artists, including myself. Nine of the previous issues are now available for sale on Amazon.com, including the Day of the Dead and Notorious Woman issues, both funded right here on Kickstarter. 

 Putting together an issue of Bad Influence requires a huge investment of time and dollars up front, before a single issue is sold. The money you pledge here on Kickstarter will allow me to put this issue together without having to dig myself into a financial hole, hoping that I'll get it back when royalties start trickling in, months later. You'll also be helping me slip a few dollars into the pockets of each participating artist. In the end, there will be a pretty, colorful new zine. Yay! 

My goal is to have this issue in your hands early in November. I'm starting with a goal of 24 pages, but can go up to 44 pages without increasing the base cost of the printed zine.

Rewards

Handmade postcards available in the $15 reward package. You'll get a real piece of handmade art in your mailbox!

Printed postcards available in the $20, $30 and $250 reward packages. These are the five printed postcard designs. 

Stenciled Frida art available in the $40 reward package. This reward is limited to only one. You'll receive this 11x15 piece, stenciled on watercolor paper.

Matchbox shrines available in the $50 and $250 reward packages. These are the designs for the matchbox shrines I'll be making for rewards. Photos of the finished shrines will appear in the zine.

Risks and challenges

As I mentioned previously, I've already done two successful Bad Influence Kickstarter campaigns (plus one for Just 10 Pages), and one unsuccessful campaign for the Art Journal Madness issue. I know how this works, and how much time each thing will take. I've eliminated some of the reward options that took up too much production time in previous campaigns. I'm using the same printers for 'zines and postcards I used previously.

Those of you who have done this with me before can attest to the fact that, once this project is funded, the rewards will arrive as described, in the time promised, and that I will communicate my progress along the way with photos, videos, and milestone updates.
