Fieldmouse Press, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit comics press, is working with Ariel Bordeaux, the creator of Deep Girl, No Love Lost, and Raisin Pie to publish her new graphic memoir through Kickstarter. The Kickstarter went live Sunday, July 11.
Graduating from the Center For Cartoon Studies in 2012, Ariel wrote Clutter as her senior thesis. Never published, Ariel has added an epilogue and new illustrations to fully complete this project. It’s a devastating account of a horrifying incident as a child, but it’s also a moving story that confronts trauma and how it affects our brains and our emotions in ways we don’t expect. Bordeaux never shies away from what she went through, but her willingness to name and confront it while seeking out comfort and solutions is inspiring.
Clutter: A Scatterbrained Sexual Assault Memoir is Fieldmouse Press’s first Kickstarter. Fieldmouse Press was established in 2019, and is best known for their online literary magazine SOLRAD. The Kickstarter campaign ends Sunday, August 11.
Ariel and the Fieldmouse Press team are available for interviews, and review copies will be available in late July.
