We’ve made it!!! Our goal has been met! Hana Doki Kira is going to happen and it’s all because of you! THANK YOU!!!!! When we we started this project, we had no idea that we would recieve such a wonderful reaction and so much support. Each and every one of you are now sharing in the success. We are all able to bring a little book about shōjo to the world. And it doesn’t end there- now we can aim for our stretch goals. For every additional $3000 we raise, the book will get better, the artists will get more compensation, and you will get more cool swag! There are also secret push goal rewards hidden alongside and between those milestones, so keep your eyes peeled as the numbers go up! Let’s keep up the great work spreading the word about shōjo!
We promised we’d show you what we’ve been up to in regards to designing the tote bag. After a bunch of back and forth, we’ve decided on a really adorable design- a pattern using our hana, doki, and kira symbology. It is double sided. One side is English and the other is Japanese.
Think of all the awesome books and magical companions it’ll be able to hold!
The reaction to our project has been overwhelming. It’s really fantastic that so many of you are getting behind art that is powered by and in support of girls everywhere! We aren’t a women-exclusive project, but everyone in Hana Doki Kira is a proponent of equal representation in the arts. If you look around Kickstarter, you might have noticed that there’s another really amazing and women-created publishing project called Lovely: The Girls of Animation. It features six incredibly talented industry professionals showcasing their personal work. http://kck.st/18QLnUM
Lovely: Girls of Animation Collaborative Art Book
The six girls of the Year 85 Group are personally huge fans of the super talented women of Lovely! (Of which there are also coincidentally six: Claire Keane, Lorelay Bove, Victoria Ying, Helen Mingjue Chen, Brittney Lee, and Lisa Keen!) They are just shy of their last push goal and could really use the support. If you have a bit extra to give, or just want to spread the word- the world always needs more amazing art and female-positive projects. We encourage you to support Lovely like you’ve supported us! It’s really important that we support others when they strive to do projects with a positive impact for all.
Once again, THANK YOU!
