Today I wrote up a Kickstarter campaign for trying to raise funds to print up all the comics & sell as big bundles. We’ll see if they approve it (my bottle opener keychain campaign about a year ago wasn’t approved). In the past month I’ve seen a couple friends get funding & some not get funding. It seems like most of the folks I know that ran successful projects were running ones that weren’t asking for a lot of money, it seems like $500 is where you generally get funds (which means 50 people paying $10 or 10 people paying $50) & that people going for the $2000 price point (which is what it costs to get a CD professionally manufactured & run some promotions on it) are less likely to get the funds. I kinda feel like the whole thing is a bunch of crap, but it seems to build excitement in a way that gets people to spend money & I can’t complain if money comes in.
In other comics news, I finally finished drawing the second issue of Vigilant (still need to scan it in & lay it out) & I spent a couple hours assembling some comics.
I also watched The Carpetbaggers & reviewed it for Finally Checking It Out including a full stream of the movie. The Carpetbaggers is the book/movie that Nevada Smith is a prequel to.
Last Night’s Dreams:
Arms come out from the control panel of the dashboard & pull the steering wheel to guide the car off of the bridge & into the river. I’m still holding onto the steering wheel as the car starts to sink & the hands grab my wrists. The hands look familiar. They’re definitely a women’s hands, but I can’t quite place them. The hands don’t feel cold, they don’t feel malignant, they don’t even seem forceful. They almost seem loving & lonely.
I’m fighting a demon & I don’t have the weapons to kill it. I do, mostly by luck, manage to knock it unconscious. I cut out its eyes, ears, & tongue & mail them out to foreign countries. Hopefully it’ll give the demon trouble tracking me down to kick my ass.
