This essay is dedicated to all my wonderful kickstarter supporters– you guys made this essay possible when you blew by the $35K stretch goal!
I also couldn’t have written this essay without the insights of my cartoonist friends Josh and Michael. We catch each other falling into these traps all the time– so much so that we named them! Check out Josh’s adventure comic, Jackie Rose, about a girl who has to fight sky pirates to retrieve a stolen crown. Also, take a look at Michael’s kid-friendly thriller comic, Adamsville. It’s about a city where something is not quite right, and about the kids who are swallowed up by the mystery… and the monsters.
This is officially the last essay for Brick by Brick! Thank you all for being here!
Work on the kickstarter is going well. Last week was a bit hard because I got overwhelmed and stressed out by thinking too hard about all the things I need to do. But I’m doing better now. I just need to take it one brick at a time, right?
