Kickstarter of the Week: MockTales: The Nexus Earth Presents

Hello everyone! This is Greg Scott Bailey. MockTales will be getting its “kickstart” with our short story book; MockTales: Nexus Earth Presents #1.

Cover Line Art

What we’re looking to fund here is payment for the artists involved as well as the initial print run for the 2013 convention season. That’s it! And that is why we’re only asking for $2500 for this first-round project.

I want to bring everyone into the Nexus Earth Universe of MockTales by starting out with four stories of random characters and places in this new world for issue #1. This book will be mostly black and white/grey-tone with color being added only if production time allows. Then, every three months, I will be releasing another issue with even more characters and stories...

The Geeks Come Out At Night

When
it comes to throwing an excitingly educational, fun-filled, geeky
night, there are quite a few cities on the list. One of the most notable
is Tempe, AZ.  From the technologically-based companies, to the
innovative work done at the Arizona State University campus, it’s not
hard to figure out why Tempe would host one of the most geek-loving
parties just outside Tempe City Hall. Geeks Night Out (part of Geek Week
in Tempe) allows Artists (such as Big Chris Art, Alfred Trujillo, and Jeff Pina) cosplayers (AZ TARDIS, Arizona Ghostbusters), as well as clothing and merchandise (Geeksville, AZ, Evil Controllers)
to roll out along with science demonstrations, and geeky wooden cutouts
for photo opportunities: it was a dream for anyone who loved science,
technology, and art and longed to ...
