One Fantastic Week

Been watching One Fantastic Week for a few months now. Fun because they are all about creators going out and doing their own creations and making a living at it. This week's episode was solid gold filled with advice on using kickstarter to make a living.

find new fans: Tumblr & Instagram, look for the curators who will like your stuff and broadcast it

kickstarter: whole package - pricing signs/images everythings gotta look super pro to make the people have confidence in you to get the minimum bar of momentum

narrative: selling the bigger story. Not just "I've got some new drawings" but "I'm an orphan raised by a witch and now I'm exploring the necronomicon with my art come and discover this world with me"

selling is a transfer of enthusiasm. You're passing what you were passionate about on to them.

what's unique

ania no media presence beforehand - on track for 30K
   a good product good story (relatable) that people want to share

price - what are similar offers from other artists
        what's the printer going to charge, what's min run
        how much is shipping (test send a book)
