We’ve now officially begun and gone public!

Official site: http://www.hofahero.com

IndieGoGo: http://igg.me/at/hofahero/x/226894

Tumblr: http://hofaheroproject.tumblr.com

I’ll be posting updates here and on the IndieGoGo site, and you’ll also see them through Twitter (@hushipro)!

We’re still accepting participants, so if you’d like to be a part of this exciting anthology project, please send me a message and I’ll get back to you with the terms and specifications!

Thanks for helping me do my best to help a friend in need.

It’s Black Friday, and Monday is Cyber Monday. Lots of people are looking for deals right now…but instead of a new gadget you’re going to get tired of in a week, or a game you’re only getting because it’s on sale, why not put a little money towards a goal with lasting benefit?

Holding Out for a Hero is in its last weeks, and we still could use and would appreciate any further contributions. The goal was just the least we could commit. Any extra will help to make sure that Hawkye can afford any further medicine and treatments needed, and it will help him and his family get back on their feet afterwards.

Every contribution of $15 or over will receive, upon publication, a digital copy of the anthology. We have some of the best and most amazing, most wonderful stories and pin-ups waiting for you. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this project is filled with comic creators who are among the best in the world. They’ve brought creative works that are poignant, funny, sexy, exciting, and even more.

You still have until my birthday, 9 December, to contribute. Please give me a great birthday gift. Please give me the gift of being able to help my dear friend to get life-saving surgery for a condition that brings him pain every day. Spread the word if you can. Every little bit helps.

Getting over art block? :D

You know what? This Holding out for a Hero project came at a REALLY good time for me, cause it’s just after a really depressing period of not being able to draw for most of this year, and it’s a project with a bunch of really fun characters to draw, and cause I’m drawing for someone else, I know atleast one person really appreciates my efforts. I actually feel like I’m getting back onto my feet with art and enjoying it again :) I must’ve been through a LOT of stress this year with moving and 2 back to back conventions. Not saying the creative dam has broken, but this comic is really helping me let it go and have fun TuT And it’s for a great cause :) Perhaps after this month I can start hitting the backlog of requests I have lined up and finally catch back up in life? <3

Also- it’s becoming more important to me than Tumblr which is a really healthy thing cause I’ve been panicking about Tumblr opinions WAY too much for my likeing. I’ve considered leaving here many times cause of it. ?I guess I just needed to not have stressful stuff in my life :)

Holding Out for a Hero!

As of today, Holding Out for a Hero has been sent to everyone who participated and everyone who contributed to the fundraiser. You should be able to download it from Hightail, and the link will be active until a couple of days past New Year’s.

Thank you so much, all of you, for making this a reality!

The Anthology!

Hello everyone!

I’m currently working on the layout for all of the fantastic content in the anthology. The fundraiser was a great success and I’m so glad for all of you who supported it!

If you contributed to the anthology, I have your Paypal address, and unless you tell me otherwise, that’s where I’ll send the digital copy…so let me know if you need me to use another address.

Thanks so much again for all of the support! It shouldn’t be too terribly long before I have all this figured out. :)


a shout-out to the project title. :D
