Thanks to all these backers, the Tiernan pins are in production, and the Patrick pins have already arrived!
Unlike with the books, the pins aren’t going up online for general sale. If you missed getting a preorder, they’ll be available on Patreon eventually. And they’ll be used as extra rewards in future Kickstarters.
…such as the Leif & Thorn Volume 2 campaign, coming up this September. Hope to see you there!
The milestone reward, when Leif & Thorn hits 50 Patreon supporters, is that I’m making pins. We’re up to 47, so I’m doing prep!
These are the design concepts for a Tiernan pin, and there’s a poll to vote for your favorite. It’s only open for the next week-and-a-half, so if you’re not already a patron and you want to vote, don’t miss your chance.
(I’m already getting quotes from different enamel-pin companies, but if you have any favorites — as a pin-maker or a customer — feel free to comment!)
Donate any amount before April 15, and you’ll get a PDF full of exclusive, never-before-seen illustrations from over 50 different comics — Leif & Thorn included.
The theme was “draw your characters as children having fun,” so I drew adorable kid versions of all the main knights — and most of their siblings. (Only leaving out Birch’s, because he has, ah, too many.)
If you do want a detailed explanation of each step, though, keep reading.
This is mostly directed at people who are familiar with the Tumblr blogging system, but the same process will work for anyone. I’m gonna try to make it as dead-simple 101-level as possible, so feel free to skip the sections you already know.
