Help me bring Ana to the Hyde Park Street Fair!
I just need to raise a little bit more funds to pay for the booth fee. Anyone who purchases a book or pledges at least $30 in the next week will get a coupon for either a free face painting at my booth at the Hyde Park Street Fair or a sheet of super cool sloth stickers!
The Hyde Park Street fair is an amazing art festival in Boise, ID. It is a 3 day lively event, full of music, art and hopefully sloths!
For those of you who have already pledged, tell your friends to jump on this offer! You will also receive a coupon for a free face painting or a sheet of sloth stickers!
_______________________________________________________________Behind the Story
This project was inspired by my volunteer trip to Costa Rica. I didn't blend in while I was in Costa Rica. It reminded me of growing up one of those odd kids.
While I was traveling, I thought a lot about the differences that build walls between people. When I first saw a sloth I thought, "WOW, I've never seen such an odd animal!"
So I decided to use the sloth character in my first children's book.
The star of my book is Ana, a sloth who is born with no toes. This flat-footed sloth shocks and horrifies all the other sloths who have only ever known of sloths with two or three toes.
Ana keeps her spirits high. The other sloths sleep & hang from the trees, but not Ana. Ana can't just hang around, so she becomes strong. In the end, it's Ana's strength that saves the rainforest.
Large, colorful & unique illustrations created with chalk pastels on paper. Each original drawing is 18"x24" and will be downscaled & cropped to fit the printed book.
I've been working on this project for almost a year now. It's close to completion, but I need your help to pull this off. Think of this as a presale, if you pledge $30 you will be a proud owner of one of the first hard cover, signed books. Ana & I appreciate your support!
The funds raised through kickstarter will be used to:
• Print & deliver the first edition of my book
• Create rewards
• Promote/advertise the book.
If 100 people purchase the book, I'll be fully funded!
When I told Ana the no-toed sloth that I was working on this project, she decided to come visit and help me out! Keep your eyes out for Ana the no-toed sloth, she will be in Boise for the summer of 2012.
