I can’t express how grateful I am for all those who have helped make this project a reality. It was almost a year ago Juicy Ink was launched on Kickstarter. So much has happened since then between traveling to comic conventions and working on my art. It shocks me how incredibly supportive and kind people are. Most of all, it brings me so much joy to hear this book has inspired others to make art again.

You may be wondering why I decided to reprint Juicy Ink. I have a silly dream of one day having an art book in a shop, gallery, etc. I didn’t have the confidence before but now I believe I can pursue that dream with Juicy Ink. And that is all thanks to you!! BIG HUGS!!! By the time I gained the courage, I unfortunately had no more copies left, since the original print run was very small. I’m opening pre orders to the public to gauge how many people are interested and to help the print production be more cost effective.

Juicy Ink Kickstarter Update

VictoriaGedvillas_juicyinkbooks

Lots of excitement lately! It’s been a lot of work getting the book ready for print, but seeing the final product made it all worth it.  Currently, I’m in the middle of finalizing all the rewards and individually packing them with lovely handwritten notes. I can’t wait to ship all the rewards and preorders next Monday. I’m blown away by how many people have preordered the book. It makes me so happy! Below is a preview of the sample book.

The final book turned out AWESOME. My previous handmade sketchbooks were saddle stitched. This time around I envisioned a perfect bound art book. The book is also ten pages longer than originally planned, filled with super secret exclusive pages. It’s amazing to see my development with Copic markers over the past year. In the book there are two versions of the same character, a grown up version of Sailor Mini Moon and the Dark Lady. I love comparing the two and seeing the style choices I made for each.

Those who did order a physical copy of the book will also receive a one-time use code to download the pdf book.

Juicy Ink Kickstarter

The last fews days have been pretty crazy, but in a good way! One of my biggest dreams has always been to professionally print an art book — and guess what!? This dream has been made possible through my Kickstarter project Juicy Ink, a collection of my copic art and ink work. So much has happened the past few days, I’m still pretty swept off my feet from the rush.

When I was a student at Ringling, I would spend countless hours in the library. They pretty much have every art-related book imaginable plus more. One of my favorite things to do was read the “Art of” books and sketchbooks of illustrators. While flipping through the pages, my heart would always clench and I would think to myself “man this is amazing.” I would fantasize the rest of the day about having an art book published and hoping I could one day inspire another artist too. After a while I would snap out of it, saying to my self that it was impossible and that I need to work harder. JuicyInk_pagesex Shortly after graduation, I started working at David & Goliath Tees as a graphic artist producing humous shirt designs. While I was there, I was able to work on a lot of amazing projects and grew quickly as an artist. But I found myself wanting to improve even more, so I dedicated hours at night for my personal art. Every night I would post a piece of art on Instagram and discovered that people actually like my art. The support I received from friends and followers on Instagram has inspired me to do so much more. I started a personal project creating stationery goods and cute accessories as Tori & Ollie, and attended a few comic conventions with my dear friend Jennipho showcasing our super cute booth. Eventually I left Florida and moved to Nashville, TN to pursue my career as an independent artist. The journey of going solo has been scary but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Juicy Ink represents my journey as an artist. Earlier this year I posted the first few drawings from my Rendr sketchbook, and it’s amazing to see how much my art has grown. I want to inspire other artists to push forward in their dreams and share how true dedication to your passion can be rewarding. Help me spread the word about Juicy Ink to as many people as possible. Thank you so much for your encouragement and support in this Kickstarter campaign, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you! JuicyInk_pagesex2
