About this project
My name is Mauricio Abril and I am an artist and storyteller. For the past several years I have been creating artwork and short films that touch upon childhood, parenthood, magic, wonder and imagination. Before that I used to work in a biotech lab before switching careers after studying Illustration/Entertainment Design at the Art Center College of Design.
SMALL DOGS is my first children's book and was inspired by the idea that our differences can also be the source of our greatest strengths.
The story is told across 48 pages filled with lush and colorful illustrations that take you into the world of the three main characters. Together Seth the rambunctious Chihuahua, Chester the aspiring superhero Pug, and Winston the nerdy Dachshund learn to accept that being small is part of who they are.
I believe the best way to share this story with you is by publishing it as a full color 48 page 10x10" hardcover children's book.
The quality of the printing and the book is essential to me as an artist but even more so for you to enjoy the book. As such I have researched various printing companies, and if I can raise $6000, I'd be able to print and distribute this book at the best quality possible.
With a story under 900 words told over 20 full color illustrations, SMALL DOGS would make a perfect addition to your children's book collection or even as an art book to show off your inner dog fan. Thank you for taking the time to consider this project, and I look forward to the opportunity to share it with you.

Risks and challenges
Since the majority of the groundwork has already been done, the biggest challenges to this project would probably come from the production process with the publisher. I have already talked with them about the specifications for my book, and so far they have assured me that there's nothing about my book that would potentially cause any unseen problems. Having researched them and their track record as well, I am confident that I'd be able to work any issues that do arise in a quick and timely manner to get the book printed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
