Interview: Kevin Budnik, "Old Gum Wrappers and Grocery Lists" - Comics on Kickstarter
Kickstarter can be an excellent way to self-fund your project. As often as I can, I’m going to bring you short interviews with people using Kickstarter to get their work out there for the world to see.
Here’s another bonus illustration from my good friend and cartoonist Alex Nall! If you’re interested (and have the time) in making an alternate cover, fan art, or illustration for a possible covers gallery in the book, shoot me a message through kickstarter, facebook, or twitter!
Between the time Dust Motes and Old Gum Wrappers and Grocery Lists were being drawn, I was working at a YMCA and drawing comics on and off. It was a really gross, humid summer. A lot of friends got married in that period, and I was stressed out a lot of the time from my job.
If Old Gum Wrappers and Grocery Lists is able to fund an additional 1,000 by September 1st, I’ll use the money from that to print Flower Grow a collection of journal comics and one page stories (several of which were originally printed in New City, a Chicago-based weekly free publication).
Anyone who pledges $20 or more will receive a copy of Flower Grow: Collected Stories
The comics in Flower Grow are a mixture of FULL COLOR and black and white water color and are presented in semi-chronological order.
Flower Grow also collects Good Weather for Bad Poetry, a series of strips partially created for The Columbia Chronicle, Columbia College Chicago’s student newspaper.
