Kickstarter Campaign - SHIP WRECKED: ANNUAL LEAVE

For the past 5 years we've been making SHIP WRECKED and it's time to make Volume 5 but we can only do it with your help. Our artists and letterer do an amazing job and deserved to get paid for their work. I've tried to self finance it over the years but it got to a point at Volume 4 when we needed to crowdsource our financing. In September 2019 the Volume 4 campaign was a big success so not only did we have our costs covered up front but as a result our viewing numbers have gone up significantly too. As we try to make the final chapter of the story, we can only hope that the same results happen with this campaign. 

However, as we've all learned from certain elections over the past few years, nothing can be taken for granted! So, please do something amazing by backing the project. You'll be pre-ordering a copy of the book for yourself and will become a patron of the arts which makes you seem like a fancy rich person of the Renaissance.

We are currently 47% funded with 20 days left of the campaign. Make a difference. Click the link below.

SHIP WRECKED Vol. 4 - Page 12



We're officially at the halfway point now of Volume 4. I'm currently fucking exhausted but that's due to the day-job being full-on during the last 3 months (I work in a hospital) and just... really needing more sleep than I'm getting. How is SW going though? Pretty damn good. So good, I'm hoping to launch a Volume 5 kickstarter before the year is out. Hoping. If I get more sleep.

There are a lot of people who I've had to look at twice because of their attitiudes towards the life of others. Empathy folks, it's fucking vital.

We've been still posting new SHIP WRECKED pages every Wednesday on http://ShipWreckedComic.com and http://tapas.io/series/Ship-Wrecked…. I haven't mentioned it because there's more important things happening so on that note, while you check it out maybe also consider donating to the following...

The Irish Network Against Racism is a wonderful cause supporting victims of racism and working to educate the nation on the topic. Here's Una Kavanagh's fundraising page for it https://www.ifundraise.ie/fundraiser/11386392_una-minh-kavanagh-s-page.html

The Loveland Foundation helps provide free therapy for Black women and girls around America and works with a number of therapy networks to do so. Therapy can be vital in helping the most marginalised survive https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/NzU4MzM=

Give if you can, promote these and other great causes if you can't. Love each other, stay safe, turn off your phone if you have to.

SHIP WRECKED Vol. 4 - Page 6


God damn this page is gorgeous. You almost don't get to see its full beauty in normal page size, I want this blown up like a mural to take in the amazing work Katie and Rebecca did on this. It just adds to the emotional gut punch that happens on this page story-wise.

SHIP WRECKED Vol. 4 - Page 5


We've had a lot of excitement over the past week on our Tapas.io page. Our views have increased significantly as have our subscribers. We got featured a couple times on the Tapas homepage and... I don't know, it's just exciting. Tapas hasn't been a huge source of views up until now so it's wonderful so see so many new readers leaving comments and liking the comic.

Anyway, Trey is scared of new people, so maybe he wouldn't handle all this new traffic so well.

When I wrote the character of Dorothea, I told Katie that I was looking for a Margaret Thatcher type. You know, pure evil. I think she captured that sort of horror. 
Dorothea isn't that bad, but she's... a problem.
