If you’re familiar with Christie Shinn’s work then you know she is creative, funny, down-to-earth and doesn’t give a flying f*ck about haters. In fact, it is the mean girls in her life who get transformed because WHY NOT?
Why not make them just as ugly on the outside as they are on the inside? Creative people do that because no one’s got time for jail. But it’s not just ugly people, she draws ugly things. More on that later.
For some people, Christie’s art is offensive. For others, it’s hysterical. I happen to think Demon Bitch is exactly what I needed in my life because she says the things I want to say when I have to be polite and diplomatic.

My interview with Christie Shinn
On June 7, 2020, I had the pleasure of sitting with Christie Shinn to talk about her Kickstarter, her art, and a bit about her life. She’s very candid about her health scare with a six-inch pancreatic mass that could have been cancerous if it wasn’t removed as quickly as it was.
After seeing the CAT scan of her pancreatic mass, something in her brain said wow, it’s got tits and she gave it the name Casey Anthony. I think it’s brilliant. Then again, I’m kind of weird because when the doctors removed my appendix, I wanted to save it in a jar of Formaldehyde and display it on my mantle. The doctors said no…and probably called Psych to observe me. But that’s enough about me. Watch the interview with Christie.
No time to watch the video? No problem! You can tune in on the podcast.
Why Some Kickstarters Are Important
Note that word “some” in Why SOME Kickstarters are Important. Most people have the misconception that ALL Kickstarters are money grabs and orders are rarely fulfilled. I can understand that if you’ve supported a project and never got your stuff. Some people are real jerks.
In fact, artists and creators who don’t deliver on their promises get a really bad reputation rather quickly and they’re not tolerated by Kickstarter or furious people.
In this case, Christie’s “I TOLD YOU SO” Kickstarter ends on June 23, 2020. She has a history of successful campaigns and she delivers because she keeps her word.
Not only that, Christie has included several artists to help promote their work on her platform and she doesn’t pocket all the money. After the fees are taken out, the money is used to pay the printers, distributors and shipping costs for those cards, prints and pins because they need to work too.
Every dollar counts and Kickstarters are all or nothing. If she doesn’t reach her goal, the pledges are void and no one gets paid. That’s how it works. It’s true that not everyone can afford to donate even a dollar, but clicking the like and share button only takes a moment.
