Check out My Enamel Pin Kickstarter!
So yeah, I say I'm trying it out but I'm already doing fairly well! I started this campaign and it's already been funded, I'm loving what the internet has done for artists. It's taken me a while but I've learned that smaller projects with a definite end are good for funding my own art right now. I really like the idea of a Patreon and a webcomic someday, but I just have too many ideas for me to stick to one project for years. Kickstarter is also a great way for people to go 'look I will buy this thing just make it already' to get me to actually take my work seriously!
I definitely want to get more Kickstarters under my belt, probably for more enamel pins (they're so cute!) but also work up to bigger projects so I can revisit comics and story telling in a more complete package that I can sell to everyone. A webcomic is definitely too nebulous for me right now, but I'm liking the idea of exploring characters and the worlds I build in an anthology someday.
... I also of course want to make a visual novel/fantasy horror dating game, so get ready to see me develop the characters for that soon (that's my dream Kickstarter right now!)
