This will be a short one.
Mainly I just want to make everyone aware of the start date for the “A La Carte” campaign on Indiegogo. I’ve decided to launch on September 16th. Get in on the action early or else you might miss your chance!
In the next newsletter (and for the remaining newsletters this year), I’ll go more into detail about the development of the upcoming “GunEngine Zero” project.
Here is a chibi version of the main character, who is given the nickname “Gunny” by another character in the story. The art is by “pencilbleed”, who you can find on Fiverr.

September 16th, it’s a-go-go!

Once again, this campaign will be offering the books and merchandise that I have on hand. Because Indiegogo allows me to lock a person’s pledge, I can ship out the items the next business day and not have to worry about backers canceling or defaulting on their pledges as has happened on KS.
The only caveat is that the campaign must first reach the minimum $500 goal before I can start shipping out items because IGG won’t collect any funds until that point.
Since I will only be offering the items I already have ready to go, supply will be very limited so it’ll be first-come, first-served.
Also note that this campaign will be the first time that I will be offering a PDF of the Neotheric graphic novel.
When I was younger I used to doodle a lot because I had delusions of becoming a professional artist. So, this is basically the graveyard of my dreams. Enjoy!
Since I posted a Batman piece last time, I thought I’d follow up with this one. This character was basically inspired by the “Reaper” character in Batman: Year Two, which was the first time I saw Todd McFarlane’s art. I developed my own grim reaper-type character and made sketches of him like this over the next several years.
T-SHIRTS ON STORE FRONTIER

I’ve uploaded a bunch of t-shirt designs to Store Frontier that you might want to check out. I’ve tried Red Bubble, Teepublic and Teespring but they always had problems. Either the shirts weren’t printed correctly or the quality of the shirts were poor. I ordered one of the “Rainy Road logo” shirts for myself and the printing looks good and the fabric is nice. And they have sizes up to 3XL. If you have particular designs or colors (because they only allow me to set 3 colors per design) you’d like to see offered, hit me up and I can see what I can do.
If we can reach 100 subscribers to this newsletter, I’ll start giving away random stuff, like comics (or sets of comics), posters, sticker sets, artwork (Oh, my!)
So tell your family, your friends, your enemies, your pets, your pet’s enemies and your social media followers to visit rainyroadmedia.com and sign up for the newsletter.
The more the merrier!
