It's finally up! The Kickstarter to help fund the Sean Murphy Apprenticeship up! Any way you all can help spread the word would be REALLY helpful, so here's the link:

www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

 *We need to charge shipping, so for example, a $20 tier will end up being $27. I hope it's not confusing.

I'm putting together an anthology with 6 students called Café Racer. The Kickstarter will not only help fund the publishing costs, but also to help furnish the house I bought in Portland (Maine) with drawing tables, chairs, art supplies, etc. We're looking for 15k to get started, so if it's something you're interested in supporting, then check it out! Some of the tiers include t shirt, prints, original pages, and Skype hangouts.

Here's a Newsarama interview I did about it: www.newsarama.com/19501-you-re…

 

As always, thank you everyone for your support. I'll be posting more details about the Apprenticeship once we're rolling, so stay tuned!

If you could reenact the scene from either An Officer and A Gentleman " The first meeting of Louis Gosset Jr. and Richard Gere" or Any R. Lee Emery Scene from Full Metal jacket. and post them. I would be prepared to raise my bid! :)

This might be better than that comic book artist reality show they are trying to get made.

Yeah I heard about that. I probably wouldn't allow cameras to the school because I want to be frank with students, and wouldn't want people taking what I said out of context. :)

Super excited to see how this turns out! Any chance you'll video document some of the process to put up after the project is complete? It'd be pretty cool to get to see the inner workings of the apprenticeship and get the faces of the students out there! I'm not talking 'reality show,' just a five-minute quickie vid when all is said and done.

Once again, good luck!

Holy crow, you're funded already! If only I had gotten my ass out of bed three hours earlier, I would have loved to have grabbed one of the Hellblazer or PRJ tiers. Really looking forward to how this will shape up!

I'd love to donate but the $25 extra for Canadian shipping is a bit much right now. Do you know if you'll consider adjusting shipping costs by country down the road?

It is high, you're right. My manager set it up that way because that's what he gets charged with for international shipping. I might have a PDF tier later if you want to check back. :)
