I have talked a little bit about this in the past.
NO ONE wants to make comics more than my talented friend Larime.
Now, here’s the deal. Larime is an extremely talented artist and writer. He is severely disabled, he has to write and draw with his mouth.
He’s created a story that is just downright fascinating, about a POC young woman who is also a serial killer. It’s beautifully drawn, it’s intelligently written, it’s just masterful work. And he drew this thing with his mouth.
Larime makes it to cons when he can, but his finances are extremely limited, far, far below the poverty line. It’s very difficult for him to break into comics in the traditional way. Drawing and writing comics isn’t just a calling for him, it’s also therapy. And thank god, he’s ridiculously talented.
He has four hours left in this kickstarter campaign for his book, that’s all. He’s passed his goal, but frankly, I think he undersold how much it will cost to print and ship his book by a wide margin. So he still needs some help if you can.
He is a poc, lgtb-friendly comics creator, an extremely talented guy who is also disabled. Doing what he’s doing is a whole extra layer of difficulty from what most of us deal with as creators. I’m asking people to PLEASE just go look at his Kickstarter page.
If you can’t donate, I totally understand. But this project is why Kickstarter needs to exist. Funding for this book is almost impossible any other way. And it’s a book that needs to be out there.
IF you can’t donate, still please go look, and spread the word quickly, okay? It would mean the world to a talented artist who has spent years perfecting his craft over obstacles that most of us can’t even imagine.
And the book is terrific.
Please help if you can, spread the word if you can’t!
3 hours left
good luck to this dude and wow OP don’t describe the story as “about a POC young woman” the artist doesn’t mention her skin color in his description and that is the correct way to do it
