Newsarama, the biggest of the comic book world's websites, did a feature on me that you can read in full at the link. Here's the opening:
There are a lot of comic book projects looking to get funded through Kickstarter. Some of them — like Womanthology and Sullivan's Sluggers — have been phenomenally successful, earning right around $100,000.
Dark Zoey, a black-and-white horror comedy, isn't one of the site's splashier offerings — no big-name pros attached to contribute, and no lavish incentives for high-dollar donors. But regardless of content, it's still one of the most unique prospective comics out there because of how it's being produced.
The book's creator, Larime Taylor, was born with arthrogryposis, a congenital disorder profoundly affecting the muscles and joints. Taylor uses a wheelchair and has severely limited range of motion in his limbs, meaning that conventional illustration methods aren't an option. That hasn't stopped him from taking on Dark Zoey solo, writing, drawing and lettering the comic by mouth, with the aid of a Wacom Cintiq tablet.
For those who don't know me, I'm a disabled artist and writer living below poverty and trying to do something about. I can really use your help.
I have a fundraiser for art supplies, clothes, household items, and so on, and there's only five days left. This is about helping me become self-sufficient, helping me live a better life, and helping me to be able to provide more or my family. This is, bluntly, about changing my world and helping me get out of poverty on my own skills and talents.
I also have that successful Kickstarter campaign for a comic book I'm trying to make, but those funds are strictly for paying the production costs and shipping of rewards. This is a general plea to improve my life and my art.
This article in Newsarama has been huge in terms of exposure, and is hopefully the first of several big things to come!
