HELLO from the SAW Fundraiser!
We want to thank you all for a super successful fundraiser. Through various sources, including the indiegogo campaign as well as our Etsy store and private donations from near and far, we reached our goal for our fundraiser. So thank you!
It’s not too late to donate. You can go to our donation page here
We’ve been busy with too many projects here at SAW even to keep up with reminders about the fundraiser, which ended without ceremony as we were busy arranging an unaffiliated concert this weekend.
Your donations have allowed us to pay our rent for the year, and to invest in a 6-color Risograph which the students have already begun getting the hang of. We’ve been able to bring John Porcellino and Ron Rege here in the spring, and to offer sliding scale classes to many in the community. You’ve enabled us to be secure in our mission to and train students and support artists for one more year.
To you in the comics world who have donated, we thank you for your belief in us from states or countries away, and hope you’ll make it down soon for a week-long workshop or even our year-long program.
For you in Gainesville, a special thank you for being so embracing of our project down here. We’re honored to be a part of this fantastic vibrant community.
A special enormous THANK YOU to the artists who donated artwork:
Justine Mara Andersen
