Digital art has changed the way creatives and artists work.

Preliminary sketches, inking, coloring, distribution, monetization, audience interaction…. These and more are done in new ways and will continue to change as technology and our society adapt. I love all that digital has done for me, but I have a secret…

I function better with physical things.

It sounds strange, but I would love everything to be digital. I imagine a life for me where all photos, books, videos, notebooks, sketchpads, daily planners, etc., etc. were all stored digitally somewhere else. Then when I need any of these things, I can access them from any computer or mobile device.

We live in a world where this is possible; I guess I am just not ready for it yet.

I loved ‘Star Wars: The Forced Awakens’. It has made me excited for the Star Wars franchise to start creating new films. Plus, it was exciting to see some faces from the original films.

Even with my excitement, I have a variety of small dislikes that I can get over but still exist.

Why did no one use bombers when they bombed things?

Sorry, a bit of a tangent.
The biggest complaint I would have for the movie is how similar it is to ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’. It turns out I am not alone in this.¬†Zachary Antell¬†recently released a video showing a comparison of certain clips of each movie side-by-side.

Kickstarter campaigns are difficult.

Here are four ways to increase the chances of your campaign being successful.
Enjoy and good luck on your campaign.

1- Build-up buzz around your project before launching.

Use social media and email those on your newsletter (start one if you don’t have one) to let me know your process of getting ready. Them hearing you are putting work into it and that you’re excited about it will help them get excited. This increases the chance they will back you or at least help spread the word about it after your project is live.

For next campaign, I plan to start dropping hints five months before I plan to launch. When people first hear about a project of any type, it is common for them to think, “Oh, cool.”

Around three months before, I will be talking about it weekly with details of what it is and how I’m preparing for Kickstarter. The entire month before I will be doing 4-6 posts a week until launch.

This build-up of mentioning it helps build interest, curiosity, and excitement to prepare people to back, share, and support the project.

2- Get feedback early and often from as many individuals as possible.
