Actually we’ve only begun to kick. Start. At five days into our kickstarter campaign, we are already 30 percent funded! It’s been giving me so many warm and fuzzy feelings seeing not only pledges, but encouragement and support flood in. We have such a great support network, both here and abroad. Thank you! And, of course, if you know of anyone else who might be interested in seeing “The Circus and the Cyclone” become a real, physical, honest-to-goodness book, with pages and everything, then make sure to send them here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/suelawtonart/the-circus-and-the-cyclone.
We’ve also added a new gallery for the circus illustrations onto this very website http://www.suelawtonart.com/circus/. Exciting, no?! I spent yesterday evening preparing stripy tent backgrounds to add that extra circus ambience.
Also in the works is a possible live circus (of sorts) descending on Milwaukee. This book started with my friends in costumes, so perhaps it is appropriate to conclude the same way. We’re still working out the details, but I’m always up for costumed antics. Always.
