Hello itch

Hello. This is my first itch project, and this is how it happened ... 

I got some creative motivation recently from meeting a cool group of people at a game design workshop  run by Avery Alder. I met Jan Martin there and she tweeted about this game bundle that's raising money to help folks in Afghanistan buy the phone credits they need to stay safe. I thought that was such a cool way to use creative work to be helpful.

When I bought that bundle I joined itch, and then I discovered that there are comics here as well as games. Comics is my favourite art form so that was exciting.

I have a few comics online, but I thought it would be cool to join a community where I could read and share things and maybe even sell stuff. I thought I should teach myself how to do a proper webcomic for my first project by learning html or something. To be honest though that was pretty intimidating so I was procrastinating. 

But then one of my new game design friends' well went dry and someone posted that they were organizing a game bundle on itch to help her raise money for the super expensive well fix or replacement. Sometimes trying to be helpful is just the kick in the pants I need to get going on making a thing.  I wanted to be able to contribute something so I decided to work with what I've got rather than waiting until I have a new skillset.

So I had these pdfs of fold zines that I sell at zine fairs sometimes and another picture of a poster I use to teach students to make one page books. I thought if I put those pdfs and instructions together that might be a thing worth buying, so I put that together and here it is. Maybe I'll learn html next time.

My friend could still use some support with that well (life without running water sounds hard!) so  I hope you found your way here by buying the bundle that gives her all the proceeds. It should go on sale tomorrow (as I'm writing this).
