I'm in the early stages of planning my first comic book Kickstarter. For those who did this before, did you pay your art team out-of-pocket and then reimburse yourself after you obtained funding? Or did everyone produce the work for free, at first, after being presented with a budget breakdown, and then received payment post-funding?

Thanks.
From my experience through a couple of KS projects, I got paid for the work on the preview only pages. they are around 6-7 pages of fully inked work. I got paid after I invoice. Then when the campaign got funded, I continued on the rest of the pages and I got paid upon subsequent invoices until the book is done.

A new project I'm working on at the moment requires around 7 pages preview as well but the client asked me to continue on even if the campaign got funded or not.

I hope this helps, bro.
