Dear Coloring Enthusiast,

Thank you for taking an interest in my coloring book! It has been extremely exciting for me to see people take an interest in coloring, which is a gateway to making art in general. As a lifelong artist, I love the idea of other people coloring my artwork to make new and unique creations. No matter the age, I’m sure you will enjoy coloring in Two Panel Animal.

Two Panel Animal is a coloring book with 16 of my hand drawn illustrations. The drawings come in pairs, consisting of animal caricatures doing something over the course of two panels.

By backing this project, you are supporting me as an artist as well as bringing art further into the community. Ideally I will eventually be opening an Etsy shop and making more and more coloring books. This kickstarter will afford me the ability keep making coloring books.

Two Panel Animal is meant to be colored by people of all ages. The illustrations are simple enough to be colored by kids, but intricate enough to still be entertaining for adults. With coloring books so popular (especially adult coloring books), I wanted to take the opportunity to make something that is representative of my style as an artist, and also something with which others can participate. So go forth and color!

Risks and challenges

All the drawings are done, I've printed a few prototypes of the coloring book, and now I just need to get them professionally printed and shipped out to all of you! As an artist and designer, I've done my share of bulk printing. However, to get something printed and bound at this size, it is difficult to do small batches and get proofs. I will be using https://www.uprinting.com/ to print the coloring books as they can handle the print size. Other than printing, everything should be in order and ready to go.

I hope you have as much fun coloring it as I did drawing it.

Sincerely,
Joel Russell Huffman
