Cam and Mr. Combover have 30,000 bees on their roof in San Francisco. They want to write a survival guide for urban beekeeping.
Cam and Mr. Combover have 30,000 bees on their roof. They want to write a survival guide for urban beekeeping. They want to raise $2000 so they can hire an illustrator (from Craigslist most likely) to make the book totally amazing.
They'll publish through Blurb.com so all funds raised will go directly to the illustrator to create original images for the book. Cam and Mr. Combover will self-fund all other aspects of the project.
A sample of chapter titles includes:
- Why Beekeepers shouldn't eat bananas
- I like these odds (Why it is good to be a guy in the hive)
- Why smoking is good for you
- Good guys don't always wear white - but beekeepers should.
Our vision for the illustrations is to go non-traditional so the book will be less about diagrams and how-to, and more about creating an original vision of Cam and Mr. Combover's beekeeping world.
Check out www.beesomebody.wordpress.com for more details, more videos, more pictures, and more honey.

- 1 oz. vial of honey

It was Cam's idea. We were looking for a new hobby and beekeeping was a great opportunity to learn more about nature, and get some honey at the end of it all.
Mr. Combover has been stung 5 times. In fact, the last time he was stung, his face swelled like a baseball, and he had to leave work and get steroids from the doctor.
