Animals Can Spell Too! is a coloring book that goes through the alphabet with animals that represent each letter.
UPDATE: I'm now offering a PDF Version of the coloring book which will be included with all of the rewards. Unfortunately I included this option in too late to edit all the rewards to say so.
Want to see more of the pages? I've been animating each of the coloring book pages, check them out here.
Animals Can Spell Too! (and sometimes color) is a coloring book I've been working on for the last eight months. It started from my love to paint animals and my desire to create something that others could add to. All 26 of the illustrations are finished, I just need the funds to produce this. Along with the book I designed and sculpted crayons, which will represent eight different animals in the book and be given out as rewards.
The funding I get will go towards the printing fees, as well as fees to publish and distribute my book. The book will roughly be 30 pages, 8.5"x11", and printed on a light gray, uncoated paper. I chose light gray as a homage to the classic coloring book and its' newsprint.
As a backer you will receive updates on the book, as well as first hand news of what's going on. I will share photos of the book, as well as the production of the crayons. This wouldn't be possible without you and I'm extremely grateful for your help. I've had the time of my life working on the book and can't wait to see it printed and published.
I want to thank you so much for your support. This really wouldn't be possible without the help from others.
Examples of the Illustrations & Book Cover
Here are a few illustrations for the book, as well as the book cover.
A Bit About the Crayons
The crayons I'm designing are roughly 2"x2". I will be designing and sculpting eight different animal crayons in four basic shapes. The images of two of the designs are showing the crayons in a brown wax. The crayons will be made into a mold where I will use recycled crayons to make the sets for kickbacks.
Custom Animal Painting Examples
Here are some example pictures of watercolor paintings I've done in the past. If you choose a reward where any custom work is done, I will contact you and work with you to create something that you are happy with.
