Thanks for stopping in and checking out my project, I am looking for support and help from you to get a second printing of my drawing book completed.
About the book:
The original book was 28 pages and taught lessons in a step by step process to begin teaching the basics of how to draw with simple shapes. I originally based the idea of of the Draw 50 books I grew up with. But to expand upon those books I then added extras about expressing emotions and showing how to take what you learn and create your own monsters. Below are some shots from the original book. What I am planning to do on the second printing of the book is expand the book from 28 pages to 40. This will allow me to add plenty of new content that I want to add after watching people use the book. I hope you will consider supporting the book.
Just select the reward you want on the right side and share the project so we can get this second printing out there!
Below is a video review of the book from it's first printing, it gives a look at the book so you can see what to expect.
I am a freelance illustrator and teach art classes as well, which is what led me to create my first book. In my class I teach my students how to draw whatever they want whether it is something made up, animals, pop culture characters and so on in as simple steps as possible. I've been doing this for about 4 years now and I ended up getting tons of lessons but the ones I enjoyed the most where creating my own monsters. I have a children's book that is being worked on as well based on these monsters. I also have a patreon account where I upload those lessons for everyone to enjoy please check it out in the link below. If you want to see more of my work or learn more about me also check out my personal website.
Where will the funds go?
The majority of the funds will go to printing 150 copies of the book, shipping and delivery of the book. 10% of the funds will go to Kickstarter and Credit Card Fees. Thank you for looking.
Risks and challenges
The book is ready to go to the printer minus 5 pages for the create a monster pledges, if those that purchase this tier don't send me their photos after the campaign that could slow me sending the final file to the printers as soon.
My initial plan is for a printing of 150 books, if we get backers over that amount it could slow down production briefly. The printer I have used in the past is very quick on the turnaround but they do specialize in smaller orders.
Hopefully there are no other issues that will arise, but if they do I know communication is key with kickstarter so I will make sure you are informed if anything was to come up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
