Dear readers of this neglected news section of my website: I wanted to update you about a project Kadak is working on.
A group of South-asian illustrators and zine and comic makers are self-publishing a illustrated anthology called ‘Bystander’ on Kickstarter.
Bystander Anthology features 51 contributors from South Asia, spread out in 13 countries – and I’m one of them.
It’s the first project of this scale, and I would love your support in helping fund it. The funding is high so that all the contributors, including the editors will be payed at a fair and international pay rate, and of course to produce the book and website that showcase the work.
I’m one of the contributors of this unique Kickstarter self-publishing project: 50+ South Asian creatives. 13 countries. 1 Comics Anthology. Stories about Gender,Identity, Boundary and Exclusion. Presented by Kadak.
It’ll be really great, and the book will ONLY be available on Kickstarter (unless a publisher magically decides to pick it up).
The #BystanderAnthology book itself is one of our many rewards, available at the £22 tier and EVERY tier above that! (other tiers have great rewards, like many zines, comics, prints and other fun things from our great list of contributors) Currently the book is available ONLY as a reward on this Kickstarter
IT’S GOING TO BE FABULOUS! Please do donate! (If not please do share) Please do share with your friends who may be interested. Every little bit helps! (Yes I know that may or may not be a supermarket tagline)
Kadak is a collective of South Asian womxn and queer folk who work with graphic story-telling of different kinds. An ever-expanding group of creators we work on self-authored projects and zines. Kadak means strong, severe, sharp —like our tea.
