What’s Next for My Comics in 2020

My Kickstarter has finished and that Sunnyville spin-off comic, Dominic & Claire Circus, is nearly done. If all goes well, it should be finished by tomorrow night. Check out the latest Kickstarter update on that.

After that, my next order of business is a planned comic book/webcomic I’ve been planning for a long time. It’s a Western called Poison Ivy Gulch. There are some similarities to Sunnyville, in spite of its human cast. It deals with a remote, isolated town with its populace full of eccentric characters. But that is a whole other story.

I also plan to continue work on my picture book, Hilda & Richie, which is also part of the Sunnyville universe.

As for Sunnyville Stories itself? I’m still on the fence about what to do. I will have been working on this saga for ten years now. I don’t know if it should continue as I want to move on. On the other hand, I can’t just abandon Rusty and friends. Even now with crowdfunding more comics a suitable option for me, I just don’t know what to do.

Sunnyville will remain on hiatus for the foreseeable future while I think things over.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned for more news!

Dominic and Claire Circus Funded!

Late last night, the Kickstarter for the Sunnyville Stories spin-off, Dominic & Claire Circus, ended.

Dominic & Claire Circus Funded!

The final funding amount is $1,030, about 103% of our goal.

This was one of the most difficult battles I ever fought. In spite of fighting hard, promoting aggressively and the amount of people helping, this went down to the wire.

This was not unlike my other Kickstarters where I funded with a few days to spare.

This shows that I am capable of raising funds in the thousands. That means that my picture book and new, more compact books collecting Sunnyville comics are now possible!

Those however are for another idea. I must finish my current comics and plan my next move.

Stay tuned for more news!

Dominic and Claire Circus: LAST DAY!

Today is the last day of the Sunnyville Stories spin-off Kickstarter, Dominic & Claire Circus!

At the time of this writing, we are 88% funded and just $118 from the goal! We are doing well and the numbers are on my side. But in spite of that, it is IMPORTANT to hit 100%!

Go back Dominic & Claire Circus now!

Dominic and Claire Circus at 70 Percent

The clock is ticking down and just earlier today, we hit 70% funding!

It is also mentioned in the most recent update but I will repeat it here. Some higher tier rewards are available; anyone taking even one of those will get us very close to our $1,000 goal.

For a pledge of $129, you get Dominic & Claire Circus as well as a print and two extra comics. But there is something even bigger that you can get.

You will also get all three volumes of Sunnyville Stories, featuring Dominic’s cousin Rusty! These books have 11 whole stories between them, plus extra features!

Remember that time is running out – this Kickstarter ends late Friday night on February 28, less than 3 days from now.

Dominic and Claire Circus: 3 Days Left!

Only 3 days remain in the Dominic and Claire Circus Kickstarter!

We still hold at 68% funding. With the last days of the campaign coming up, I hope to see more pledges come in. It is not unusual for pledges to come in during the final hours of the campaign.

From here on, I aim to continue beating the drum about the Kickstarter as I always have.

No matter what happens, for better for for worse, I am in this Kickstarter until the very end.

There are plenty of rewards left such as my comics and an exclusive color art commission available for a pledge of $299!

Dominic and Claire Circus: 5 Days Left!

As I continue to sell my comics at FM Comicon 2020 (I’ll have more on that later), I also have been pitching the Kickstarter to convention attendees.

It is going well as at the time of this writing, we are now 67% funded and sitting only $75 away from being 75% funded!

That is so amazing and the chances of Dominic & Claire Circus getting funded is very high.

However, I do not intend to sit around and wait. At today’s convention, I will continue to stump for the Kickstarter as I did yesterday.

During the event, I was handing these out. These slips of paper were printed up at a copy shop across the street from the convention hotel and bear both the URL plus a QR code.

Remember that 5 days remain for us to hit the goal.

Dominic and Claire Circus: 7 Days Left!

ONLY ONE WEEK REMAINS IN THE DOMINIC & CLAIRE CIRCUS KICKSTARTER!

This weekend, I am attending my first convention of 2020. That is FM Comicon 2020. I have the latest Kickstarter update going into more detail.

But to make a long story short, I will be using the convention to promote the Kickstarter as well as sell my comics.

These will be on display at my convention table. On the left is a page from a Western I’m planning, Poison Ivy Gulch. On the right is a page from Dominic & Claire Circus.

As I pitch my comics to attendees, I will get the word out about the Kickstarter.

We have 7 days left but I’m confident we can fully fund.

Dominic and Claire Circus: 9 Days Left

We have just 9 days left in the Dominic & Claire Circus Kickstarter and we are around 63%.

While I am doing good, I aim to keep beating the drum.

Check out the latest update for a look at some Dominic & Claire pages.

Make sure you go back Dominic & Claire Circus now!

Dominic and Claire Circus: 10 Days Left!

We are now in the final phase of the campaign. We have 10 days remaining to reach 100% or higher. At the time of this writing, we sit at 62% funding and I aim to get that number higher.

It has not been easy and I’ve had doubts. As I type this blog post, my state of mind is different from what it was this morning. I had to make a choice between doing what is easy and doing what is right. That was covered in my most recent Kickstarter update so go read that.

But I learned something else during my Kickstarter for Dominic & Claire Circus and it was something that Tyler James Vogel taught me.

I am a leader.

Some of you may not believe that or even refuse to believe it. But I am a leader.

All of you out there who’ve been reading this blog, reading my comics, buying my merchandise and backing my Kickstarters…you are my followers.

I can’t just throw in the towel. A leader does not give up at the first sign of trouble or whenever there’s difficulty. If I did that, my followers and everyone else would realize that I’m not a leader. But I am one. And that’s why I can’t just quit.

I’d be letting myself down.

I’d be letting my backers, my fans and my supporters down.

I’d be letting Tyler down.

I’d be letting Dominic and Claire down.

I can’t do that. I’m a leader and everyone out there is counting on me.

First Kickstarter and First Convention of 2020

Just a reminder – my first convention of 2020 is this weekend. I will be vending my comics art FM Comicon 2019. That will be held this Saturday, Feb. 21 and Sunday, Feb. 22 at the Ramada Fargo here in North Dakota. Look for me there!

As a reminder, the Sunnyville spin-off Kickstarter for Dominic & Claire Circus is winding down. By tomorrow morning, we will be in the last third or final ten days of the Kickstarter.

We are frozen solid for some reason at 59% funding. In spite of extra rewards and reaching out to contacts, everyone is holding back from pledging.

From now until the end, there will be daily updates on this blog to drive traffic to the Kickstarter and get pledges. Watch this blog for more news.

Also, please back Dominic & Claire Circus on Kickstarter!
