My friend, the very talented mouth-artist Larime Taylor, had a Kickstarter going for a project he is doing, a comic featuring a young female serial killer.
Larime is severely disabled…he has to draw and write and edit his book using his mouth. Despite what seems like a nearly insurmountable obstacle, he draws like a bandit and his comics are always excellent. As I said before, it’s not just a hobby or a career for him, it’s therapy, it’s an important outlet. And the comics are great, this looks like his best work yet.
He was in the last day of the Kickstarter, the last four hours, in fact, and I asked you guys for help in spreading the word and donating, if possible. In just FOUR HOURS, your ringing that bell brought in almost four thousand dollars, well over twice the total pledge amount he had been asking for originally.
Because of the size of the donations, he has expanded the size and length of the book considerably.
You guys did that, in just four hours. I love it because for all the bullshit about slacktivists and negativity about people on Tumblr, when it came time to put up or shut up, you guys put up.
Freaking awesome. Thank you so, so much.
