Hello, my name is Andrew Tarusov. If you’re here, you’re probably already familiar with my work or perhaps you even backed one of my seven previous crowdfunding campaigns (if so, hey, thanks!). My art is internationally established and has been commissioned by Playboy, Maxim, FOX, Disney, Cosmo, etc. I’m known for my playful and sexy pin-ups, cartoons and calendars, but today I’d like to reveal to you another interest of mine...erotic comics.
In January of 2015 I decided to start drawing comics as part of my Patreon page. At launch, I offered my patrons four different artistic themes to choose from. To absolutely no one’s surprise, they voted for the erotic graphic novel. Thus was born Swinging Island. I tried to complete a full-color page a week (more or less) and, finally, this summer I finished it. My readers were very happy with it - so much that they asked me to publish a print version. Certainly not wishing to deny my fans, I’ve returned to Kickstarter to make that dream come true.
Swinging Island is the story (yes, there’s a story!) of Betty and Grant, a couple who overcome their fears and insecurities together by exploring their sexuality with Rita and Ricko, another pair of very attractive strangers ;)
What follows is a fun and unforgettable erotic tryst in a playful, sex-positive atmosphere.
Be aware that my comic is full of nudity :) (The images here on Kickstarter are censored for the public, but the original pages posted on Patreon and in the finished comic are uncensored.)
Guys found a mistake in the campaign! The book will be SOFTCOVER, not hardcover. Sorry, I just can't change it anymore. I explain that in the FAQ
- Andrew Tarusov - Artist and writer of the book.
- Maria Polozova - Project Manager & Head of Delivery
- Brendan Jones - Editor
- $10 - International Shipping
- $3 - Shipping to Russia
If you need more than just a one book, please multiply that amount to the price of the book+shipping:
($17 + shipping) x (amount of the books you want) = What you have to pledge.

Here are some examples from the comic. Again, they’ll be uncensored in the book but, you know how sensitive Kickstarter is…
Risks and challenges
This is my eighth crowdfunding campaign and my fourth Kickstarter. EVERY campaign was successful and fulfilled. Each time around, we’ve gained more experience and most of our backers are super happy. Also, this is now my second book to be published, so I’ve learned a lot of the ins-and-outs of that process as well.
The comic is 100% drawn (you can check it on my Patreon if you want). I’ve already found a print-house who’s ready to print adult material with the high quality I want. And we also have a team to ship books and deal with any issues (for instance, if your book is damaged in transit, we’ll send you a new copy).
We’re working full time on this project and all we need now is you!
