I haven’t actually blogged about these pins yet, have I? July 11, 2019

You know it’s the last day of a Kickstarter when you start having dreams about canceled pledges. And then a dream where a backer managed to pledge “-$1”.

Also, hey, it’s the last day of a Kickstarter! I’m making enamel pins for the cute mascot critters from each of my comics.

Tiernan is Thorn’s soulbonded therapy cat in Leif & Thorn. She provides emotional support, help recovering from PTSD flashbacks, and general adorableness. Also, she cuddles up to Leif at every opportunity.

Patrick is the puppy-shaped starring shapeshifter of But I’m A Cat Person. He’s nervous, determined, eager to please, and always ready to show off his prowess in a fight! …much to the distress of his new pacifist millennial Master.

The pins have black metal outlines and screen-printed spots, to really capture the style of the comics, like the characters just popped off the page.

The poses were voted on by Patreon supporters — and a good thing, too, because the ones I would’ve picked by instinct were…not necessarily the ones that turned out to be the fan favorites.

You can get either pin alone, both of them together, or all kinds of digital bonus packages. (If you’re not a pin person, but still want the project to succeed, you can get a digital-only bonus package!)

And I really do want this to succeed. I have a mini con coming up in September, and could use some variety on the table between the prints, books, more prints, and more books.

Here’s that link one more time. Deadline is 11:59 PM, US Eastern — and there’s less than $100 left to raise. Check it out, tell your friends, get a pin for yourself maybe?

Or, heck, get a pin for a friend. They’re designed to be so cute and full of personality that you don’t even need to know the comics to appreciate them. (Though it sure doesn’t hurt.)

The first look (or second, or third…possibly fifth, depending on how many of my sites you visit on a regular basis) at Leif & Thorn Volume 1!

Leif & Thorn Volume 1

It’s 180 pages. It’s oversized. It’s full color. It’s already drawn!

…it’s not already printed. This is Only A Model.

Which is why I’m raising the funds to do a print run on Kickstarter. Back this project, and you can get your very own copy of Leif & Thorn Volume 1, plus all kinds of other cool rewards. You can get wallpapers. You can get postcards. You can get custom art. You can get yourself drawn into the strip!

(Not in this book. In a future book.)

I kept the budget modest, so if we get funded, I get to print a short run of books. And if we get OVER-funded, I get to print a LONG run of books.

Visit the campaign page to learn more. You can follow the project to back later…or follow your dreams and back now.
