Change of Plans for Mr. Dino

There is a change of plans regarding a future shop.

Before I go into that, I’ve officially “Finished” the Mr. Dino Pride Keychains campaign, meaning payments are done processing. Once I receive the keychains from the supplier, pre-orders will be fulfilled.

After pre-orders are fulfilled, however, Mr. Dino will NOT roll over into a separate shop.

Why? Because there is not enough demand or product to justify opening a separate storefront for Mr. Dino at this time. I have enough stock to fulfill pre-orders, but no more than that.

Does this mean that Mr. Dino will not get future merch? No. Mr. Dino will still be around. But he will be listed alongside my other stock on my Ko-Fi shop.

Will Mr. Dino have future crowdfunding campaigns? Who’s to say? He may get a campaign of his own, and/or he may have merch listed as rewards in a different campaign. I’m leaving those plans open for now.

Until then, I will keep you in the loop when the keychains arrive from the printer. Once they arrive, orders will ship out ASAP.

In the meantime, TOMORROW, the Holiday Pop-Up Shop opens! You can get a preview now. Sign up for the newsletter to get notified when the store opens.

Keep in mind, as well, that the Holiday Pop-Up shop will feature new indie artists alongside my own work! Subscribe to my YouTube channel to catch one-on-one live chats with the artists who are featured this year.

That’s all for now. Thank you for your support!

Pride Merch and a Pledge Drive

In this latest edition of Crowdfund Café, we’re covering Mr. Dino Pride Merch and a Pledge Drive for Members. Plus a lot more!

Let’s get right to it…


The Crowdfundr is paused (not closed, to ensure the campaign can turn into a storefront later). This means we’re not accepting further pledges at this time. We’re tallying up pre-orders now and getting them ready for the printer.


Kelci is running a pledge drive for new members to join their Ko-Fi page! Members who pledge $5 a month will get:

  • early access to webcomics, including The Legend of Jamie Roberts and Vanita and the Demon King,
  • unlimited zines delivered to their inbox,
  • bonus perks for backing a Crowdfundr and/or KickStarter campaign,
  • an exclusive supporter newsletter,
  • shout-outs on YouTube,
  • and lots more!

To get the full list of perks, and to subscribe, head over to Kelci’s Ko-Fi and click “Memberships.” You can also pledge via Fan Clubs.

You also have the option of pledging $15 a month, which will get you the above perks PLUS exclusive desktop and phone wallpapers to download.

To see what Kelci’s goals are for memberships, watch their pledge drive video.


the printer's proof of The Legend of Jamie Roberts, volume 2, a comic by Kelci D Crawford. The cover depicts a blonde genderqueer person standing in a forest. Between the trees we see an enormous dragon with red and gold scales.

We have received the proof from the printer! Kelci will post a video on their YouTube channel before the end of the week to show it off. After reviewing the proof, we sent some corrected pages to the printer and are awaiting the digital proof. If everything looks good after that, we’ll send the approval to the printer!


We are preparing a special Holiday Pop-Up shop to open in November! This pop-up shop will highlight independent fantasy creators from Ohio in a special online shopping event for the season. To stay tuned for creator highlights, product previews, and more, subscribe to the newsletter to stay up to date.

That’s all for now. Thank you for your support!
