Pon&Zi Kickstarter!
[Click the image to be taken to the Kickstarter page!]


Hey again!

To quickly recap, I recently launched a Kickstarter project to fund the printing of the first Pon&Zi art book. We have reached and exceeded the original funding goal of $10,000, and I am now certain to be able to get the book printed! If you haven't been to my Kickstarter page to see what's been happening, please take a look by clicking the graphic above. To thank people for preordering the art book, I've created a list of rewards that are exclusively available through my project, so now may be the only chance to get original Pon&Zi watercolor illustrations, hand-painted resin figures, special edition prints and to get your art book signed. <3

Now that I've got more than enough to get the book printed and especially since there are still three weeks before my project deadline, people have begun to ask what I'll do with the extra money. So I've created a stretch goal for $20,000 and if we make it that far, I'll also be able to get Pon and Zi plushies made! As of right this second, I'm already close to reaching 150% of my original funding goal. Once it reaches 200%, anyone who has pledged $125 or more will automatically also receive a pair of Pon and Zi plushies with their reward package. Anyone who has pledged at a lower level will be able to add plushies to their reward packages by increasing their pledge amount by $20 and selecting the appropriate unlocked pledge level.

Sooo, if you haven't taken a look at the Kickstarter, please do! I still really need all the help I can get to continue spreading the word about my project, so I'd really appreciate it if you could tell anyone you know who might like Pon and Zi! The amount of support I've gotten so far is overwhelming. I can't thank you all enough! Let's keep it going!

Hey, I would really love to back this project! My only question though, is your reward levels with the new rewards have me a little confused. All I really want is 1 book + 1 t-shirt. What is the, I guess, minimum reward level for that?

Heyyy, sorry about the confusing pledge levels! Unfortunately, since I'm basically absorbing the shipping fees, and since Tshirts will likely need to be shipped separately, the only way I can offer the Tshirts are at pledge levels of $70 or more. I know it's a lot if you're only after a book and a shirt, buuut the Tshirts will be available on their own through the shop at ponandzi.com as soon as they're ready, so that's an option too.

Nope! I'm getting a lot more than I need printed, and they'll be available for sure in the Pon&Zi online store afterward and hopefully in bookstores eventually if I'm lucky. : )

:iconazuzephre:
azuzephre Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Student
Actually, yes! It looks as though the project may reach 100% funding today or tomorrow, and once it does, I'll set a secondary goal to also get plushies made. : ) Stay tuned!

I hope so! This Kickstarter project is simply to fund the printing, and publishing is an entirely different story. I am registering the book with an ISBN number and barcode so that it will be ready to go if retailers want to carry it, and I'll try my best to make it happen. : )
