Curls by Carolyn Belefski Kickstarter halfway point



Want to be a Cartoon?

Posted by Carolyn Belefski
Recently Bleeding Cool asked me to write about Curls and professional wrestler Sonjay Dutt tweeted about the project. I was also on The JellyVision Show podcast and have already recorded with other podcasts -- they will be releasing the episodes soon.
Our top pledge level is for the Curls book, which is awesome because that's the reason why we are doing this Kickstarter together. I also want to let you all know about another popular pledge level -- the $100 Avatar level. This is a cool opportunity to turn yourself, a friend, or family member into a cartoon! It makes for a great gift and you get to keep the original line art and received a color digital file. How cool is that? You also receive a Kickstarter exclusive signed and numbered Curls print, the Curls cowgirl print, Curls book with autograph and sketch from myself, postcard set, Kickstarter exclusive button pack, Curls patch, computer wallpaper, your name printed in the book acknowledgements, and song. 
Check out the image above of my pal, Lara. This illustrates the process steps and shows you an example of the custom cartoon avatars I can create for you.
We have 14 more days and $1,895 to raise to make this project come to life and become a reality. I believe we can do this.
Send your friends a direct link -- -- or use the "Share this project" button under the video to connect with your pals on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Embed Video or Widget on your website or blog.
All the backers of this project inspire me to keep creating. Thanks for the encouragement.

Belefski of Curls nominated for Lulu Award

Matt Dembicki's let me know that Carolyn Belefski of Curls is nominated for a Lulu Award - Carolyn has the story on her site. It looks like anyone who wants to can vote.

She also has her report on SPX up where she notes that she's publishing Elizabeth Watasin's return to comics. (whoo-hoo! I loved Charm School). She also discusses her new anthology which has a lot of local creators in it.

I interviewed Carolyn a few weeks ago for the City Paper - coming up soon, her writing partner Joe Carabeo.
