We are Pocket Vinyl.  We're two people who like to do a lot of artistic things.  Eric (myself) does music stuff.  Elizabeth does visual art stuff.  Our main things are:

-Pocket Vinyl, our touring "piano slamming mixed with live painting" act
-The Touring Test, the semi-autobiographical comic Elizabeth makes about being in a band, living as a full time artist, and cats 

We've played over 750 concerts, released 5 Pocket Vinyl albums, drawn nearly 100 Touring Test comic strips, and even filmed/edited/created a full length feature film about what it's like to live as small full time touring musicians.  



And now, we've decided to come to Patreon for the next step and to do it WITH YOU.  For the next year, between June 2018 and June 2019, this is what we'd like to make happen.

GOALS

1. Continue strongly with our webcomic The Touring Test, putting out 2 strips a week, throughout its second year in existence

2. Release a Touring Test physical book, featuring additional comics and long form strips not found online

3. Make a choreographed dance music video for our song "Pretending To Be Angry At The One You Love For Reasons You Can't Quite Discern"

4. Start work on our next musical project, and you will help us decide what it is.  Christmas album?  Series of EPs?  One long 45 minute piano concerto?  A guitar album?!  You will vote on our future, and then we'll start to work.

5. Perform at least 80 more concerts all over the United States

6. Set the world record for "Fastest to Play a Concert in Each of the 50 States" (the current record is 50 shows in 50 days.  We think we can do it in 45 or less)

7. Make 12 "painting videos" for several songs from throughout our discography

8. COMPLETED!!!!!! - Make a single-shot music video for our song "Sexuality And My Decisions Concerning Sexuality (Both Good And Bad)"  Watch it here

9. Finish work on a new Legacy-style board game Eric has been designing for 3+ years and try to find a manufacturer for it

10. Consistently work on and update you all on the graphic novel we're working on, written by Eric and illustrated by Elizabeth, called "Amy"

11. Make podcast episodes on each album we're released (all 6), explaining the backstories, themes, and meanings tied to each one.

12. HALF COMPLETED.  Elizabeth has finished one book called "The Sneaks" which can be found here.  Illustrate at least 2 books working with the Naskapi native group in Quebec 

13. Make 6 "album videos" where Elizabeth paints in real time a painting for each album, with perhaps some riff on the cover.  This is for if anyone wants to listen to our album on youtube for whatever reason.


That is a ton of stuff, but we believe we can do it with your support.


Examples of some of Elizabeth's Pocket Vinyl work.  All these paintings were made on stage in 45 to 60 minutes.
