Who is the Coyote Child?
Update -- The Coyote Child Enamel Pin campaign has ended, and I am finishing up the rewards. The pins are here and they look wonderful! My last mission is to make chapbooks so I can send out the short story stretch goal with the pins.
Thank you for your support, everyone!
The coyote child is one of my personal little monsters., He was born in a barn and raised by coyotes so he's not really clear on what the world wants from him, but he means well. People tell me that he looks like their cat, or their dog or their toddler. They tell me he's cute and that he's ugly, and often they take a print home. Sometimes they don't know why.
Why make a pin?
Art prints need frames and glass and a lot of wall space, but a cloisonné pin fits almost anywhere. For his fans, a shiny little pin (with no glass to break) is the most convenient way to take a Coyote Child home.
What will it look like?
The Coyote Child pin will be a 1.75” cloisonné pin in a limited edition of 100 in high polish-black nickel metal and hard enamel. I personally created the original line art based on my 2014 painting. Funding is provided by a successful Kickstarter campaign that ended on February 6, 2018, and the actual pins will be manufactured by Signature Pins. The pin will be presented on a backing card with art and a brief explanation of the Coyote Child.
