I wouldn't normally post something like this, asking you for money, or promoting a more commercial side of my life... This is a personal blog and it will stay that way.

That being said, this has taken up a HUGE part of my life for the past few months. Here's the short version: As a graduating class, we (the OCAC thesis students) put on a off-campus exhibition. It is our responsibility to fund it, which is where the Kickstarter campaign we launched a few days ago comes in. We're attempting to raise $8,000 by March 20th, and if we don't raise it all, we don't get anything.

I have put so much time and effort into making this happen. This is not something I've done on my own, but I feel fair in saying that I shouldered a bit more responsibility with the Kickstarter than the average thesis student. Those who helped know who they are and should feel majorly accomplished. This campaign has at times seemed impossible, unreachable, and daunting. It's been exciting and a huge learning experience just putting it together. I have been jumping for joy while working on it, and also been crying in frustration.

I hope you loyal blog readers, although fairly silent, will take the time to at least watch the video. Though I didn't film or edit it, I feel so proud with how it came together.

If anyone from this blog donates, I will be profoundly grateful. Like I said, this is a personal blog and will remain that way, and gaining money from it is not the goal I have. This is, like everything here, a documentation of my life.

So, if you have a second, watch the video, and maybe go to the site and check out some of the reward levels. Or just donate $1. Anything helps and anything is greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to the actual Kickstarter page!

(It should be noted though, that the $50 reward level (the ephemera) is seriously cool and also limited in numbers. So far that is what we're selling the most of, and I would highly recommend that level. The catalog, while a bit pricier, will also be amazing, I have been a little involved with designing it.)


  1. I am FB friends with a certain Carly, and I saw this link, and I wanted to send you encouragement and appreciation for your efforts to make art and things! *Awkward stranger encouragement!*

    1. Awww, thank you so much! There can be no greater thing than awkward stranger encouragement!
