Folks! If you haven’t heard, I’m trying to fund my my first graphic novel, I Was a Teenage Michael Jackson Impersonator!, through the art fundraising site Kickstarter.com. You get 30 days to raise the funds, and if I come up short, I get nothing. I’VE GOT TWO WEEKS LEFT AND I’M ONLY AT 40%!! I’m in rough shape! But there’s still time to do this!! Which level will you be? Tito? Jermaine? Latoya? Jesse? KING OF POP? Take a look at all the cool stuff I’m giving away to backers and start donatin’!! And PLLEEEASE, TELL YER FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES!!
The campaign has a few weeks to go, and Knight has posted some MJ cartoons in the updates, and also reports he has a ruptured Achilles tendon, which may hamper his moonwalking.
Check it out—there are some great rewards, including the King of Pop-level contribution, which will get you a command performance of Keith as MJ in your own living room.
