My nom de plume is Sugandya. (Some people say it like 'shoo' gun dee ya. That's not right, but I won't correct you!) I'm using Patreon as a platform to run my Rococomon project as a monthly subscription club. 



Why collect my pins?

You'd be working with an artist, jewelry designer, and draftswoman whose "master" digital medium is vector art. I have experience designing with the machines in mind as long as I know the specs and their capabilities. This allows me to take full advantage of options my manufacturers have to offer without having to deal with a middleman altering my artwork too much unless where it's absolutely needed.

And, because I don't work with a middleman, the project can begin immediately whether we have 15 or 1500(hah) people. Most of my costs are in the molds and in shipping the pins from the factory from me, then to you. There are also Patreon and Paypal fees, but that should go without saying.

Effects like mini lithographic prints (like in my Go pins), silkscreening, magnetic lockets, lenticulars, moving parts, puzzle pins, layered pins, mixed metals, and other ideas are in the possible future depending on the design.

Therefore, the artwork that you will see go through very little to no changes when sent to the factory, so there are no surprises beyond how it looks when made tangible.

If you decide to join, you will not be charged until the 1st of the month, which qualifies you for the upcoming pin.
Example:
If you pledge on August 5th, you will be charged September 1st and qualify for the pin that was announced on August 15th.



My Kickstarter will now focus on my original designs and more complex fanwork ideas (i.e. large or weird pins), but my Patreon will focus on my fanwork based on simpler designs.  I feel that Patreon more readily encourages user feedback and participation, something I've really wanted to have going into this. Not only that, but it allows a greater degree of transparency for future supporters.This setup allows me to focus on one lovingly and intricately-designed pin each month and potentially expand this project.

By joining my Patreon, you can:
  • Get first access to limited edition designs*
  • Get exclusive access to shiny versions of the pin designs
  • Get exclusive access to high resolution coloring pages
  • Qualify for milestone pins and surprise gifts that only patrons can receive and won't be available for purchase otherwise
  • Have an input on future designs
  • Get deep discounts on past month's pins and stickers as well as my upcoming line of trainer pins.
  • Come or go as you please. Don't like this month's design? Reduce or pause your pledge! Love it? Sign on up!

*Limited Editions (number of pins that will ever be made per design):
  • Regular Pins Pins: 500 or #of first backers + 250, whichever number is higher
  • Exclusive (Shiny / Milestone / Event) Pins: #of first backers + 150 (extras will only be purchasable by patrons)
  • Stickers, with the exception of exclusive designs, will have an unlimited run.




I'm a big fan of design history. Being a Pokemon fan and a Rococo and anachronism enthusiast, I started this project, Rococomon, to explore a what-if Rococo-fied Pokemon world in my head.



Note that this art project is not "Pokemon in the Past," but a fancier, sillier, even higher fantasy take on the popular series still set in their current time period (or perhaps even 3 days into the future), but on a different plane of existence. In addition to Rococo, you'll find elements of several other design movements married in with Rococomon: Baroque, Georgian, Art Noveau, Solarpunk, Steampunk, and EGA/EGL fashions.  The majority of of these movements share a connection with their roots in the Baroque style. 

Designs are carefully created with consideration to the character's nature and story in mind.





The general size of the vinyl, weatherproof, professionally-printed stickers will be around 3" to 5" inches in size. It all depends on what looks best for the design.

The pins will run a wider range; 25-30mm for the babies, 35-45 for the mid, and 50+ for the fully evolved Pokemon. These sizes aren't set in stone and will, once again, all depend on what works best for the design. By default, I usually like to aim for 1.5" / 38mm pins; they're big, but not unwieldy.



Gameplan 
  1. Eevee & Eeveelutions: Almost a year of Eevee. Who would complain? These will be released based on their Pokedex number, as follows, unless we hit the first goal and open voting:
    1. Eevee (#133)
    2. Vaporeon (#134)
    3. Jolteon (#135)
    4. Flareon (#136)
    5. Espeon (#196)
    6. Umbreon (#197)
    7. Leafeon (#470)
    8. Glaceon (#471)
    9. Sylveon (#700)
  2. Backer Nominated: After the Eeveelutions, I will hold a poll for backers to vote on the next line of Pokemon-related pins each month. When and if we reach this point, more details will follow as to how this will work. If enough patrons join the project, I may expand to include  2 or 3 designs per month.

Timeline (All times and dates based on occurring during midnight, GMT-4 / EDT, with some flexibility)
  1. Charges are issued on the 1st of every month. If you join after the 1st, you will not be charged until the 1st of the following month. If there are any new idea polls, they will open for 7 days at this time.
  2. Pins and stickers are ordered on the 5th.
  3. Patrons with successful charges will have their goods shipped to them immediately after arrival and inspection.
  4. A new design is released on the 15th of every month.
  5. Supporters have until the 2nd of each month (GMT-4 time) to request color options or past pins, if available.
This project is still in its infancy. As time goes on, dates will shift and designs will ship out much earlier!



Will supporters be allowed input on future designs?
Yes! I'm always open to suggestions, and will sometimes put up polls to gauge interest for the next subject to take on. They'll be able to nominate Pokemon, trainer characters, or items from the series.

Will I be able to buy past designs?
Yes! You'll be able to buy them privately, either directly from me or from the upcoming Patron-only shop.  You'll also be able to buy the non-exclusive designs without pledging from my Etsy shop and eBay store, but only a very limited number of those pins will be reserved for public sale and will not include the discount nor the shiny versions of the pins. Those pins will also likely be second and third quality.
