Art Bar Comics Publishing Fund

$2,000 goal

Campaign created 19 months ago


The Art Bar Comics is seeking funds to help launch our fundraising "coffee table book" in 2017! Our nonprofit; Hawaii Mural Arts, is traveling through the USA gathering grassroots comics from local artisans interested in helping us fundraise for ProjectWALL - "Paint4Pens" a campaign to help bring awareness, teach sustainability, and gather funding for diabetic insulin pens.

Your support will help with publishing our book from Maui to Mainland. ALL PROCEEDS FROM BOOK SALES ARE TO FUND "PAINT4PENS" Roadtrip, to provide FREE PENS FOR DIABETICS.

Funds are necessary to maintain mag distribution and a designated location for insulin pen distribution (@The Art Bar SF). 

UNKNOWN ARTISTS new to art scene will be offered one-page ad space inside the 'ABC' at the affordable price of; $50 distribution fee, then $10 per month to continue ads. This underground grassroots mag will feature unknown artists all across America!!

All others; advertisers and seasoned artists offered;
one quarter page ad @$300,
half page @$500,
full page @$2K.

And every artist who gets their comic in mag will also be interviewed for more exposure on our upcoming community television program; 'The Art Bar Maui,' as well as featured on social media web accounts; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, vlog, YouTube, and more!!! And streamline presentations during our events and workshops.


HALF PAGE: will be for anything goes; contact info, pics, collages, anything that we can laminate and looks great in black n white (until more funding arrives for color printing, mag will have distribution based on printing costs we can cover.

2nd HALF PAGE: of artist page is designated for minimum of at least one comic strip entry. If you can fit more, cool! NO COMIC NO ENTRY.

Please make entries combining BOTH  halfs on an 8"x10" regular plain white notebook paper (no heavy card stock or construction paper). We want to keep it super simple and will be placing docs in sheet protectors (until laminating machine is purchased), for public viewing during events.

Send one page entries/payment to;
A Nonprofit Corporation
PO BOX 1614
Makawao, HI 96768

Can make checks payable to;
Mishel Narvaez c/o Hawaii Mural Arts. Cashiers checks or money orders preferred.

Also, because our Lead Muralist will be traveling by vehicle off island, printing/laminating gift cards are preferred to avoid travel delays during winter season. Gift cards are VERY appreciated to;

COSTCO/Kinkos/OfficeMax/FedEx/and Local Publishing locations, is more convenient and preferred when not in SF or Maui. AND WE ARE OPEN TO PUBLISHING SPONSORSHIP AND MAGAZINE INVESTMENT.
