Hello to pledgers old and new.

We've had some excellent opportunities to speak about Draw The Line recently, so now you can choose how you'd prefer to enjoy your updates - in print, on air or in person!

Firstly, you can listen to this week's episode of Panel Borders which broadcast on Resonance FM and is now available in podcast form, titled Comics Activism. It's split into two parts…

Hello everyone, and a particularly big welcome/thank you to our newest Draw The Line pledgers! I'm so glad you found your way here, and felt that the project was worth backing.

Just to remind you all of why you pledged, Draw The Line is a toolkit for anyone feeling powerless in the current political climate. It offers more than 100 ideas for making change, and they're all illustrated by comic artists…

Hello pledgers,

As you'll have seen if you've visited the Unbound page recently, we're still corwdfunding slowly but steadily and we currently stand at 29% funded.

We're hoping to get the word spread a lot further next month though, because a load of the Draw The Line artists will be at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal, UK on October 13 and 14.

Not through any prior organisation…

Hi everyone, and a particularly enthusiastic hello to everyone who's pledged in the last couple of months. It's great to have your support and to know that we're that bit nearer to our target of getting the Draw The Line book into your hands.

We so want to get these fabulous comics with their ideas for positive political action out into the world -- and if you have a moment, there are a couple…

Which Draw The Line artists are offering bespoke commissions?

Monday, 18 June 2018

We're a fifth of the way there! Thanks so much to everyone who's pledged so far, and an especially big thank you if you've also helped spread the word about the project. Personal recommendations really do bring more people on board.

A very short update this time, but an important one - just to say that you can now see a list of all the artists offering bespoke commissions on one handy page.

Many thanks to those who have pledged since the last update. It's very exciting to see the total creeping up!

I wanted to lay out a bit more detail about the pledge rewards. We're fortunate, with multi-artist project, to be able to offer so many and diverse rewards, but the downside of that is... how do you convey the huge multiplicity of options?! Well here's an attempt to do just that.

As you'll know if you follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, we've been posting an image a day from the Draw The Line project. Today's is from Joe Decie, and celebrates 'neighbourhood sharing' schemes. Typically for Joe, it takes a slightly sideways view.

If you're not familiar with Joe's work already, then boy do you have a treat waiting for you - you can flip through stacks of his comics…

Where Draw The Line's profits are going

Tuesday, 15 May 2018

Thank you so much to everyone who's already pledged for the Draw The Line book and got us off to a really good start! Over the next few weeks, while we continue to crowdfund, we'll be adding a few more reward options such as original artwork from more of the Draw The Line artists. Don't worry if something pops up that you wish you'd known about before you pledged - you can change pledges at any time…
