About this project
I am an artist based in St Ives, a coastal town in Cornwall, UK.
My partner Miss Muju & I set up the Muju Studio here over 7 years ago to focus on our own creative journey. I produce drawings, paintings & prints, and Miss Muju produces limited edition sculptures in a variety of different mediums. We both work full time on a variety of creative projects, and have been exhibiting and selling artwork to a worldwide audience for over 10 years. You can check out more of our work at www.mujuworld.co.uk
The Colouring Book Project
I have a passion for drawing, especially black & white line work.
I like to use old dip pens, brushes, fountain pens, each has their own quality & style.
For the last 10 years I have been illustrating an imaginary dimension called Mujuworld.
It's an evolving vision of guardian spirits, landscapes, temples and patterns.
I have a vast amount of drawings filed away in sketchbooks and folders that have been waiting for a project to bring them into the public realm.
After many requests for a book of Mujuworld illustrations, I have decided to publish this collection of drawings as a high quality colouring book.
When I am drawing my mind becomes calm and all my attention is focused on the pen or brush in my hand. I hope that when you start colouring these illustrations you will begin your own journey into Mujuworld and experience moments of peace & creativity.
I need your help to raise funds in order to bring this project to life.
The funding goal will cover the costs of the first print run of this book and the cost of shipping books worldwide.
I have aimed to produce a high quality colouring book using UK based printers.
Here are the main features of the book:
- 42 pages of black & white illustrations to colour in yourself
- High quality digital printing on heavyweight 160gsm paper
- Heavyweight matt laminated full colour cover
- Size : 29cm x 21cm (A4)
- I already have all the illustrations and layout finished & an actual proof copy of the finished book which I have checked & approved.
- The printers are ready to go into production, all I need is your help with funding the printing costs.

Risks and challenges
All the artwork for this project has been made and I have a proof copy of the book from the printers that has been quality checked and approved.
I am using a printing company based in the UK who are ready to print the first edition of the book as soon as I have the funding.
Once I have given the go ahead to the printers the books should be delivered quickly to my studio and from there I can ship orders worldwide.
I have taken all these factors into account for the estimated delivery times on the rewards.
If any delays occur I will keep all backers updated & informed.
