We did it! The Kickstarter is fully funded! This baby is going to be a reality and it's all because of awesome backers like you. And you! And you! And, yes, you, too! The project reached its funding goal yesterday, but I have been bedridden since... (Read More)

Two new sketch covers as we enter the final four days...

July 6th - via:
Figured I'd keep the rewards fresh and to do that I turned to Brian Lopez-Santos to see if he had any other sketch covers I could offer. Like a champ (and a true friend), Brian didn't even blink and eye. He unveiled two more sketch covers for me to... (Read More)

Heading into the final stretch

July 5th - via:
This is it. The final few days of the campaign. We're doing well enough, but that still hasn't let me avoid being nervous. We still need to pick up $477 before 4 p.m. Friday. I am confident we can do it! I really, really am. I've just never had a... (Read More)

Rantz's Black Cat up for grabs

July 3rd - via:
 Love the character Black Cat? Love Randy "Rantz" Kintz's style? In either case, you're going to LOVE this new reward. You get two ORIGINAL pieces (the two on the bottom center and bottom right) and two PRINTS (the two with red signatures) of the... (Read More)

Just a week remaining...

July 2nd - via:
It's hard to believe that we have just a week remaining (well, 7 days and several hours). Things have gone very well and I am both excited and nervous about the end of the campaign. Obviously, with $700-plus still to go, I'll need to do a steady push... (Read More)

June 28th - via:
We're almost at 70 percent thanks to a nice push this weekend. Now we just have to pick up 30 percent more and we're going to finish this off nicely and with a win! I'm going to have a few art pieces that I will be putting up next week: An 11x17... (Read More)

Day #15 and 16: Halfway point!

June 26th - via:
We've officially passed out halfway point. Sorry I missed a day on the updates -- life kinda caught up with me and kept me away from doing my side projects. We've had a couple of rough days and have lost ground. We have 84 backers, $2,536 pledged... (Read More)

Day #14: Keep on truckin'

June 24th - via:
Sometimes money issues arise for backers and we totally understand that, which is the case in why we lost about 5 percent of our funding yesterday. A great backer had to pull out because of some financial uncertainty, but he was awesome about it and... (Read More)

Day #13: Vampirella and the numbers breakdown...

June 23rd - via:
Vampirella sketch cover by Brian Lopez-Santos  First and foremost, I have yet ANOTHER sketch cover available from Brian Lopez-Santos. It's one of the few remaining that I'll be getting, so if you're a fan of his work or a fan of Vampirella, you... (Read More)

June 22nd - via:
Supergirl sketch cover by Brian Lopez-Santos  Up for grabs is a new Supergirl sketch cover by Brian Lopez-Santos. Looks like she's saving the day by stopping a plane from crashing. Man, that's definitely a story to tell the grandkids one day,... (Read More)

Day #11: Bleeding Cool...

June 21st - via:
Oh, hey! Bleeding Cool ran my post on Saturday, so I thought I would share it with all of you so you could share it and let folks know about it. It kind of breaks down what you already know, but there might be some new info in there as well. Take a... (Read More)

Day #10: Big push into the weekend

June 20th - via:
I am definitely not going to complain about where we are standing for the weekend right now. Friday into Saturday saw the project climb to 82 backers who have pledged $2,710 -- that's 67 percent of our $4,000 goal! Excellent! We still have 19 days... (Read More)

Day #9: Still going strong...

June 19th - via:
I actually did have a new sketch cover to put up as a reward, but before I could write the update it already sold! It was a Harley Quinn sketch by none other than Brian Lopez-Santos. I've included it below just so folks can see the work he did and to... (Read More)

Day #8: The Eighth Day...

June 18th - via:
So the eighth day is officially upon us, and it is good. We climbed to 60 percent funding with 75 backers (we did lose another this morning...) and $2,415 pledged towards the $4,000 goal. I'm going to try to get an article up on Bleeding Cool this... (Read More)

Day #7: Roberta Ingranata Commissions Available!

June 17th - via:

Day #6: New rewards

June 16th - via:
Man, I must have made someone mad with my last post as we lost another big ticket backer (sorry!) and we have slid back a little since the last post. Sometimes I just have no idea what missteps I'm taking, but if I offend you or upset you, please... (Read More)

Day #5: Moving forward!

June 15th - via:
It's Monday and the weekend is officially behind us, which means that we're already starting to see some more progress towards our end goal. We had a couple of new backers come in today (thank you!) and we've had a couple cancel (we hope you decide... (Read More)

Day #4: Predicted stall

June 14th - via:
The weekends, for whatever reason, are horrible for Kickstarters -- at least in my experience. You can chug right along during the week, and then you hit a wall on Saturday and Sunday. It's strange, but it's the way every Kickstarter I have done has... (Read More)

Day #3: Progress!

June 13th - via:
 Progress is going very well for our little Kickstarter campaign. Right now we have 67 backers who have pledged a total of $1,720 (43 percent!) and we are just a few days into this!  -------- The weekends are typically super slow in Kickstarter... (Read More)

Day #2: New sketch cover rewards

June 12th - via:
Baroness by Brian Lopez-Santos  I have to say that waking up to the second day of my Kickstarter with 63 backers and $1,515 (37 percent!) having been pledged is almost surreal. Never does a creator expect that kind of support right out of the gate.... (Read More)

Day #1.1: Thank you

June 11th - via:
Kickstarter sent me an email. It's automated, sure, but it told me what a great day this project had. Making waves, it said. And as I get ready to rush out the door to take my kid to a softball game and then go to the late, late premier of Jurassic... (Read More)

Day #1: Amazing progress

June 11th - via:
When you start a Kickstarter campaign, you do so with the idea of how much you need to raise to make your project a reality and how long you're running your campaign for. You break down the numbers, even subconsciously, knowing full well exactly how... (Read More)
