I'm Not Waving, I'm Drowning

Two weeks ago I posted about being a Kickstarter virgin. Now I've come full circle to being a full fledged beggar. We're two weeks in and not quite one quarter funded on the all or nothing funding platform of Kickstarter.   I can only conclude that Susan Shulman, Ria Vanden Eynde and I are on a self fulfilling prophecy as we lay it out in our Art Mysteries comic.

Or maybe not.  The Art Mysteries series of comics is a satirical look at life in the trenches of making art and getting it shown.  Share the frustrations of endless rounds of grant application, presentations to galleries, promotion, dead end second and third jobs to make ends meet while producing art.

Plus along the way meet a great cast of artists appearing in cameo roles as we get to the bottom of those mysteries of success in Artworld.

The comic is based in the real world of art from the lofty battles for riches at Soethbys to grumpy old misogynist artists (Georg Baselitz, I think we'll be seeing you in the next issue!)

Panel detail for issue #6 - due out mid March - (William and Susan hitching a ride to their residency)

Why not take a moment to take a look at our Kickstarter project?  Subscriptions and other great rewards are yours and in return you help us defray some of the cost of printing and distributing these limited edition comics.

How else will you find out what happens after Belgian artist 
Ria Vanden Eynde got sucked into Dante's Divine Comedy?

Thanks all you folks who have pitched in so far...we love you!
