Hi there! My name is Austin and I'm a 22 year old illustrator and designer. After graduating from art school I jumped to start my own brand: Street Cherub.
Street Cherub is inspired by all of the things that I love: video games, cartoons, vinyl toys, retro 90s stuff, Japanese street fashion and internet culture~
Everything about my brand is entirely made by me! I make all of the designs, hand cut every single sticker, punch out every button pin, I even made the lip balm...
It is my dream to make Street Cherub as great as I can; I hope that you'll help me bring my world into yours!
Currently, I have stickers, button pins, figurines, and all sorts of stuff on the Street Cherub website... but there is one thing I have always wanted to make and that is CLOTHING!
This goal seemed out of reach... however, I have recently gotten an overwhelming request to start making clothing of my artwork! So that is why I've started this kickstarter.
The first apparel item I'd like to make is a t-shirt of my most popular design: an art piece I call Magical Girl On Call.
Here is a graph of the estimated budget! The cost including Kickstarter fees, payment processing fees, as well as costs for making and shipping out rewards items are included with the goal. This brings the budget to $650 for making the first set of t-shirts.
If we make it past the initial $650 goal, we can add more options for the Street Cherub apparel line including higher quality production, and maybe even more designs!
Designs for the second T-Shirt design will be chosen by pledgers! No matter what amount you pledged, you'll have a vote in the additional T-Shirt designs!
I'm giving lots of cool stuff as rewards for those that help me with my kickstarter goal!

Risks and challenges
I have been developing products for almost three years now, and I am experienced in creating and selling at conventions, storefronts, and online.
However, I have never produced clothing items before, so there could be unexpected delays. While it is unlikely, I still think it is worth mentioning! The clothing items will be made by outside sources and shipped to me before I can ship them to you, so there could be possible differences in the expected shipping dates of pledge rewards.
All in all, I hope that you will have confidence in my ability to make super cute shirts!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
