These amazing Bubble Pendants are a project we have been working on making a reality since last summer.
And now is your chance to get them.
The artwork on these pendants is by Isabelle Melançon, the art half of the creative team behind Namesake. She and the wordsmith half (Megan Lavey-Heaton) are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publishing of the first volume of Namesake.
Namesake is the story of Emma Crewe, a woman who is stolen in the aftermath of a library fire and is dumped in a land made famous by literature and cinema. She learns she’s a Namesake, uniquely connected to this world by the power of her given name, and now she must act as the story’s protagonist as she figures out how to make her way home. But as Emma travels, she discovers that those controlling her story have their own selfish goals in mind – and her fate is the key to everyone’s happy ending.
This is one of the most beautiful comics around with both amazing art and writing. That’s why in 2011 we approached Meg & Isa to collaborate on Namesake Bubble Pendants. In our minds these would make great wearable art. And now that we have the prototypes all finished, we were Right!
So how do you get these pendants? That’s easy. Follow this link to the Namesake Volume 1 kickstarter Page and pledge. Pledges over $25 get you a print copy of the 144 page book. The $45 pledge will get you one of the three Namesake Bubble Pendants (and the book, and a pin up of the cast). Any of the pledges of $60 or more come with the full three piece Bubble Pendant set.
These are exclusive pieces that we have designed with Meg & Isa just for this Kickstarter project. I’m not sure if these exact designs will be available in the future. So, your best bet is to get them now.
Because this is a Kickstarter project if they do not meet their funding goal by February 23rd they will not receive any of the funds raised. This is an all or nothing endeavor for them. So lets go support a couple of lovely female comics artists, and get them to their goal.
