A bit frazzled at the moment, I suppose my mind is thinking into overdrive and I have to go to a company workshop early in the morning.
Kickstarter campaign has been going, but it hasn't been doing too well. After running two weeks I discover that I have no fanbase of any sort and whoever I know that I told seems to has just brushed it off and went on their own way. It's especially crushing with the people you work with, spent time in class with, or any other extended period of time. I'm learning a very harsh lesson about how my introvert ways hurt my social networking ability. Youtube and deviantART are my biggest communities I'm involved in (and seem to be the only place people make positive comments about my works and ideas), so anything outside of that is practically zero. It's been discouraging to say the least, but I'm still hoping and mentioning the project around.
I'm making a call-out once again for you guys to share it around and back it if you can. I redid the appearance, put a project video and added graphics talking about the rewards even. I have
doing the art for the poster that's one of the rewards, too.
Whether this thing gets funded or not, I wouldn't have gotten this far without these two.
, they've taken great strides and hard work to do the art and writing for this project. So thanks to you both; the rest of you go give them a visit, watch them, give comments and check out the people who are helping me make this thing real.
Also for those of you who are tumblr oriented, I started up a tumblr for the campaign. You can visit it here for art snippets, news and such: www.tumblr.com/blog/michikobat…
Even before I had fired it up, I had placed a personal website up that I'll start regularly blogging and posting things so I'll have an online presence of some sort. You can swing by and take a look if you wish: janeilh.com
. I also have a sample of the Michiko eBook there, so go ahead and give it a read. I'll post art and still be involved in the community, but I'll start posting less "artsy" things there such as perhaps mushroom photos I took, museum trip galleries, things of that sort. I hope to get over that small stumbling block inside of me and once more be able to blog about my life's happenings and tell you all what I'm up to without abandon or worry.
Also as part of a favor,
has offered to make a mention about my Kickstarter if I mention his commission journal in a sort of trade-off deal. Thing is, he does do good commissions and have ordered from him before, so I am more than proud to direct you guys if you need character lineart or any other sort of thing done. I've thumbed his journal below to help ease of things:
