felicememoria asked: Hello there! I finally got my money and was about to forward it to your kickstarter; when I noticed that it refuses to take paypal :( Is there any way around it, like sending it to you personally or something? I'd really, REALLY love to have the printed comic and artbook and it makes me pretty sad right now.
Fear not, for I will be offering a PayPal option once the KS campaign has ended!
A special shop will be launched (to help me keep track of the orders), and those who cannot use Kickstarter will be able to pledge through that! Not all options will be available, as the higher tiers were meant to be very limited, but anyone who uses this method will have a chance at all the physical and digital rewards. I’ll release more information as the campaign approaches completion :>
Cloud Factory: The Garden
This latest track embodies the class and tranquility of Dame Bellefleur’s massive greenhouse. Within it, the extensive collection of rare blooms and plants she uses in her work blends seamlessly with a perfectly manicured garden.
Molly spends as much time there as she can upon her return to the valley, soaking up the artificial sunlight and tending to the flowers.
Well, folks, there’s still five days left in the campaign and I can’t thank you all enough for propelling it this far!
As of writing this post, the project is a whopping 919% funded, and we’re creeping up on the 9th stretch goal, which adds a new 1” button to all tiers $35 and up at 70k! The design will be unveiled when the goal is met, but something tells me we won’t have to wait very long.
For those of you who haven’t been staring lovingly at the campaign page nearly every waking hour of the day, here’s a summary of everything we’ve accomplished so far:
- Three bonus comic pages have been added to the book and the online launch, for a total of seven pages for everyone to read as soon as TCF starts!
- The book has been expanded from 32 pages to 36.
- A 1” Kickstarter-exclusive pin and a bookmark have been added to all tiers of $25 and up.
- A sticker sheet and an additional two 5 x 7 prints have been added to all tiers of $35 and up.
- An antiqued brass and enamel luna bee pin has been added to all tiers of $45 and up.
Give yourselves a pat on the back, guys, because this is incredible. Way beyond what I dreamed of achieving in this campaign! Seriously, I think I may have had five or six stretch goals planned initially and had to expand it to TWELVE because they were being met so quickly.
I’ll be able to make The Cloud Factory the best it can be, and it’s all because of you. Thank you.
William & Penrose Na’Melorra
The twins Na’Melorra were the source of much grief for Théo as children, stemming from a fierce rivalry between him and Penrose over Molly’s friendship. Their fights were frequent and often imbalanced, with Pen trumping Théo in age and size, but the tension faded over time after Molly moved away and Pen stopped growing.
Now 18, Will and Pen help their parents run their shop. The Na’Melorras are clothiers by trade, the knack for which William inherited the lion’s share, but Pen has a head for numbers and helps with the business side of things.
Due to the secluded nature of the valley, the latest trends in fashion always arrive months past their prime, so the family has had little luck doing business outside of Rivervale. Trade with Lakeside is very lucrative, however, as they can offer stylish clothes for less than it would cost to import in fabrics better suited to the valley’s climate. They also have a major client in Molly’s aunt, Dame Bellefleur, whose wardrobe is comprised almost entirely of bespoke garments made by William.
Will and Pen’s grandparents immigrated from a country that is almost as much jungle as it is desert. Their parents had an arranged marriage, but are fairly nontraditional themselves and don’t expect their children to do the same. While William prefers modern fashions, Pen dresses for comfort and prefers the loose, draping clothes of her grandparents’ homeland.
They own a tawny dwarf cat named Daisy.

daximed asked: This is an odd question, but how would you feel if I were to cosplay a character from Cloud Factory? I would wait until the comic's release so that I can get the character's personality and quirks down. Your art is very lovely and I absolutely can't wait!
That would be amazing!! My only stipulation is that you please send me pictures when it’s done, it would probably make my YEAR.
(This goes for anyone who would like to make a TCF cosplay. PERMISSION GRANTED, SEND ME PIX PLS.)
