Hi! I’m Geneva B, an illustrator based in the NC mountains. I love portraits and colors and mashing the two together. I've put together a crowdfunding campaign to get my 3rd art book, Tournesol, on the ground running!

In the past, I saved and used my own funds to have the books printed. Due to a roller coaster of a year, I haven't been able to invest in getting them made, especially since the quality I'm looking for is over double what I have allotted in the past. My last two books were of "okay" quality, in terms of printing and presentation. In hindsight, both lacked the depth they could have had. This year, I want them to be as good a print quality as I can muster! When you're releasing an art book, it's usually of your best, and you want your best to look as amazing as it can, right? :)

So, why the name Tournesol? Lately, I've seen a change in themes of my art. I recently moved to a tiny, rural unincorporated town in the middle of a forest, surrounded by nature. The internet is almost nonexistent, but the flora and fauna are gorgeous! I've slowly put more greenery in more drawings as a result.

With you're help, I'm hoping to create 100 special edition books (or more if the initial $2,500 goal is passed!). Here's a look at the specs:

 

 

 Each book will be signed and numbered. Most of the work compositing the book is complete! By the time the campaign is over, it'll be ready to send over to the printer. The estimated page count will be between 70-80 pages.

So, what's in it for backers? Well, you'll have my eternal thanks! Every dollar helps it along and I owe you a legit high five (or handshake, if you want to be formal!) if we were to cross paths in real life. But, if you want real physical items, here's a handy chart:

  • Stickers, postcards, and the book will be made using a third party. Pearl prints are printed in-house with my own industry standard equipment.
  • Postcards are estimated to be 4x5 inches with rounded edges
  • Stickers will be ~3.5 inches tall
  • Shipping is included for domestic USA orders. 
  • Extra shipping rates apply to International orders. 

Meeting these goals, I'm hoping to offer a little extra to backers!

 

 

 

 

 

So, where's the money going? It's all going directly to getting this book printed and put in your hands. Here's a lovingly drawn pie chart:

 The $2,500 is based on hypothetically ordering 100 books total and shipping out all these things that go with these books. Of course, if this campaign were to surpass $2,500, I'll rebudget again to include more books, more perks for backers, and a stretch goal or two.

Thank you for reading! If you have any questions, do let me know :)

If you'd like to look for more art, here's a link to my Website, Instagram, Patreon and Tumblr.

Risks and challenges

Composing the book is 85% complete and will be finished in the duration of the campaign. The largest risk would be shipping delays from the printer(s) for books or backer perks.
An upcoming medical procedure in September may hamper my shipping out of backer perks by a couple of days.
If any of this were to take place I will notify backers with the situation and a new ETA if applicable.
