About this project
The Metots Totem Spirit Animal Postcard Coloring Book will be a 5”x 7" softcover book featuring at least 20 pages of different Metots to color! These removable cards have a postcard back with info about that Metot, so you can color the little cutie and mail him off to a friend! The book will be printed on 100# paper. That's a heavyweight paper on which markers will not bleed-through! The postcards will be glued together on one edge and wrapped in a full color cover, so if you don't want to mail the cards, you can keep your Metots cozy and out of trouble!
OKAY, SO WHAT'S A METOT?
Urban Dictionary explains it best, "A spirit animal or totem is meant to be a representation of the traits and skills that you are supposed to learn or have. Online, saying something or someone is your spirit animal is a statement that said person or thing is a representation of you or what you want to be." Within my paintings, I enjoy mixing human and animal traits, and I thought it would be fun to draw creatures that are a unique mash-up of various animals. During my experimentation phase for this project, I drew one that had a tater tot shape to it. A Metot was born and I was in love!
BE INCLUDED IN THE BOOK!
Want to see what YOUR Metot Totem Spirit Animal looks like and have it included in the book? If you select one of the Custom Metot Totem Spirit Animal rewards, you will be asked to provide three animal inspirations. PLEASE NOTE: Metots can not be controlled! When you select the animals, you can state a generic or specific animal, for example a dog or German Shepard, but you can not specify how they appear in the totem, such as "I would like my Metot to have a dog head, monkey body and a cat tail." Sorry, Metots just don't work that way!
Once the campaign is funded, I will connect with you to collect your totem animals, then I will draw the custom Metots to add to the Metots Totem Spirit Animal Postcard Coloring Book. The books will be printed by late fall 2017, so you will receive them in plenty of time for the holiday season!
METOTS ARE AS UNIQUE AS YOU ARE!
Being totem spirit animals, Metots have their own magical way of coming together and no two are alike! So if you and your cousin select the same animals, your Metots will each have their own look and personality! That also means it is possible to have more than one Metot connected to you as they may guide you in different facets of your life, such as one Metot may remind you to play and another keeps you focused on the goals ahead.
Here are two Metots created using the same animal inspirations:
Metots are not your ordinary animals! Some say these totem animals offer guidance and companionship on your life journey. Others rumor that Metots have devoured so many of their favorite food, tator tots, that they actually look a bit like the tasty fried treat!
If we reach $4,600, 4 NEW Metots will be added to EVERY book! That means everyone gets 24 Metots to color!
If we reach $5,600, 4 MORE Metots will be added to EVERY book! That means everyone gets 28 Metots to color!
If we reach $6,600, you guessed it, 4 MORE Metots will be added to EVERY book! That means everyone gets 32 Metots to color!
If we go higher, I will figure out another fun way to thank everyone!
THIS AIN'T MY FIRST RODEO!
Once this project is funded, it will be my second successful Kickstarter-backed coloring book. The first book, That Naughty Pipe, was a collaboration with writer, Rob E. Boley. You can review the campaign on Kickstarter or pick up a finished coloring book on my website!
Risks and challenges
As a professional full-time artist, the only challenges will be working with the printer to meet the estimated delivery date and dealing with unruly Metots!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
