About this project

I like to doodle. But I call my doodles Dordles. A Dordle is not quite a drawing and not quite a doodle. Each mark of lacerating genius is recorded on scrap paper then polished on computer. Some are done entirely on computer. Hopefully this keeps them playful and fun. 

Currently, I have over 440 of them with themes that range from funny to somber, sweet to perverse, and often involving a good, old-fashioned pun.

So far my Dordles have only been seen online. And while they have proven fairly popular on blogs over the years, they have never existed in tangible form.

I need you, kind Kickstarter user, to vote on your favorite designs and help turn them into high-quality color 4x6" post cards. I've run a test through a vendor for 5 designs and they turned out great. I'm so excited to make more!

The 30 designs with the most votes will be printed, 100 cards minimum of each, for a total of 3000 cards. I'll send these to friends, family, enemies, publishers, and independent books stores that I hope will want to carry them.

Basically, I want as many people as possible to see them in person.

Additional copies of the cards will be printed to give to anyone who helps fund the project.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
