About


Seven Years is a humorous and painful autobiographical comic about toxic relationships, coming to terms with your trauma, and learning how to move on. It started as a brief mini-comic to explore the longest relationship I’d ever had, only to spiral into a way to visually communicate what that experience felt like and continues to feel like to this day. Originally posted back in March, the comic was posted daily on Twitter and Instagram.

The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to raise the funds necessary to turn the comic into a physical book. The reaction to the original run was incredible, and I want to make something that can be shared.

Campaign Rewards 

The Book: Originally published online as a daily comic, this book will collect the entire 49-page story into a 5.5” x 5.5” book. Bonus content will include the original 3-page mini that ran prior to its launch, the twitter commentary that accompanied the original daily posts, and a special section for an afterward and backer thanks, bringing it up to an estimated 60-page book. If we meet certain stretch goals, it could be MORE at no additional cost to you!

Backing Card Not Final
Backing Card Not Final

The pin: The project will have TWO pins. The first is a 1.5" silver and black enamel angry doggo pin from the comic, so you can always wear your anger on your shoulder. This will come on its own special backing card unique to the kickstarter.

The Other Pin: The second is a limited edition Slowko pin, only available through the Kickstarter. This will come in a special limited pledge tier with the comic, individually numbered and signed. It will feature black nickel, screenprinting, and delayed realizations, on top of a lovely backing card. (If you haven't read the comic you should definitely pledge to the comic so you understand this joke.)

If Certain stretch goals are hit, more will be added…! Maybe even a sequel.

Stretch Goals

8/6/19 100% FUNDED IN AN HOUR LET'S DO SOME STRETCH GOALS

8/10/19 ALL STRETCH GOALS ARE DESTROYED UHHHHHHHHH




Where's that Money going?:

I can't sustain paying for everything out of pocket anymore. I've reached a point where realistically, the best way for me to put this out there in a physical form that's easily shared is to crowdfund it, and Kickstarter is the best place to make this happen. The money will also help me get time off from work to re-letter parts that were rushed so that it reads more cleanly. If stretch goals are met, this will also help to cover the time it will take to produce additional pages and cover that extended cost as well.

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter so there may be delays in production of certain items! If it doesn't fund, no books, no pins. However:

-I've printed books before, including two on pin production alone...so at the very least the pins will be handled correctly. I also did a previous, smaller autobio at this size so I already know what to expect.

- I already have a hired assistant and team to help ensure everything is packaged correctly and ships out as soon as all the parts are assembled.
