I like to make people happy and cheer people up. When I was growing up in Kansas, I didn't have much, but I always could have a paper and pen. So I started making art to be able to give to my friends and make them happy.
I love to bring art and loud happy colors to everything I do, so I have brought my colors and cuteness to both my everyday way I dress and my collaborative professional photo shoots. That is why I got the nickname Happy Alarm. I'd love to release a beautifully produced coffee table book showcasing my colorful style and illustrations and modeling. The book will be a combination of my drawings, my personal photos of my adventures, and professional modeling photos.
You might have come here because we are friends on social media. Or you might recognize me from hosting the Fickle Wish livestream or reporting for NHK television's Kawaii International or as one of the six reality TV stars of Myx's The Doll Life. Or maybe you've checked out my playful fun-loving nudes for Blue Blood and Messy Hot. I love rave and Japanese fashion and I've modeled unique clothing everywhere from indie designer trunk sales to cosplay convention stages. I've loved working with Enchantic Enchantilly, hAngry & Angry, galaxxxy, Angelic Pretty, Alice and the Pirates, Newbreed Girl, Mint Neko, and more. Also, I love sweets and plush animals and I feel a special connection with frogs.
Anyway, I'm really excited about the opportunity to share all my different forms of expression with you in one place. I'm so grateful and happy to be getting to spend my youth creating and making a fun space in the world.
My future plan is to raise and keep honey bees, but right now I want to make an awesome book and share it with you all! This hardcover coffee table book will be the same case laminate cover, richly saturated full color printing, 172 pages, and overall high quality found in other art books published by Blue Blood.
I have Blue Blood's Forrest Black designing the book. In addition to his decades of experience with Blue Blood, his design skills have been tapped by such bands as the Dandy Warhols, Radiohead, and Everclear. The prestigious graphic design magazine PRINT honored him for his trendsetting sexy alt work and I know he is going to make this book look as incredible as the ideas in my head.
I'll have other things to offer, besides just the book, like custom character sketches, Kickstarter-exclusive T-Shirts and personalized fan signs. For a character sketch, I'll look at photos of you and talk to you about your interests and try to show your personality in my drawing. If you want, I will also post the drawing of you to my social media. For a fan sign, I will make you a custom photograph, personalized for you or your business. The photo will be high resolution, suitable for printing, and, if you want, I will post it to my social media too!
It would be such a huge help if you could share my video above and spread the word about my Kickstarter for this art book project. Thanks so much, everyone!
It's about what makes you happy!
Stretch Goal: If the Kickstarter exceeds $10k, I will also create a super colorful calendar and everyone who pledged at the $75 (before shipping) level or higher will receive it as a free bonus item!

-whispers- oh my god you guys........... we did it. we really did it. I couldn't have done it with out everyone not for even a moment. Thank you everyone for believing in me. That really means the world to me.
Posting a long thank you video later. It's taking a while to encode.
So we probably won't hit the stretch goal because there are less than 2 hours left. But it looked kind of scary yesterday that we wouldn't make it at all and today has been miraculous and incredible, so just thought we'd mention the stretch goals. If we hit the stretch, we'll be able to get to give more to the Oakland Fire and we'll be able to make you guys a free bonus back to school all-Audra-all-the-time Ultra Happy Alarm calendar. Kind of like the RazorCandi calendar below, only with jelly bean colors.
Please do share the project link for the next hour still and let's see what happens! Thanks <3
We are down to the last few hours of my kickstarter and getting MAJOR CLOSE to the goal!!! There are still 11 early bird packages left -- includes book, T-shirt, stickers, song download, art print and, wow! The design for the t-shirt is still tba. I may do some exclusive design or it may be something like my logo, or a photo or drawing of my design or maybe even all of the above... I've always wanted to do tshirts so I'm really excited to do some!! Whatever it is you can expect it to be something fun!! We seriously are getting soooooo close and everyone has just been overwhelmingly supportive.... thank you for being so invested in my dreams everyone!!!! I really feel like no matter what we are in this together!!

Super catchy bubblegum pop goodness. Heaven Pegasus produced this track with Audra and it is going to be a bonus free download for all backers, if we make our goal! We are at 68% right now, with one day left, so please please share.
Here is what Heaven has to say about it: "Thrilled to announce that I am producing songs for a new bubblegum pop idol, ultrahappyalarm aka Audra Jayne!
Audra is a talented visual artist, princess of the Los Angeles happy hardcore rave scene, and American J-fashion icon. I've always wanted to write songs for another pop artist and I couldn't have found a more perfect collaborator. Please listen to our hard work!"
What is the least cutest thing about Audra?

One day left in this Kickstarter and we're at 67% funded! The good people at Kickstarter do a lot of math for artists and they say that, "Of the projects that have reached 60% of their funding goal, 98% were successfully funded." We still have a ways to go with one day left, but it looks like we can do it! Thank you all so much for your support and please share this project like crazy for the next day. You can share with the buttons on the Kickstarter page or by typing in UltraHappyAlarm.com :-)
Love, Audra & Amelia

In addition to everyone who pledges, at the sticker level or above, getting fabulous custom stickers and prints, you are all going to get a free bonus music download!
Audra is collaborating with Heaven Pegasus on a music project. Heaven Pegasus is a singer/songwriter/lyricist/producer whose work uses the tight formal structures of bubblegum pop music to explore themes of loss of innocence, non-binary gender, and unrequited love. Ultra Happy Alarm backers will receive an exclusive sneak peek download of their song Spider.
For now, you can watch this hilarious karaoke video of Audra and Heaven doing Toybox Tarzan is handsome, Tarzan is strong ...
