About

About the project:

The sky above is an illustrated children’s book. I created the story and illustrations. Imagination is a child’s best gift. My manuscript examines the child’s imagination in order to present the innocent view of the child. Children’s picture book stories are quite different from the adult graphic novel or comic novel. Because children see this world in a rather innocent and simple way, the stories are often very minimal and direct. Usually it only has one problem and one climax. Moreover, the philosophy in the book is often wrapped up with imagination. My story is, like many children’s book stories, very straightforward. I hope through imaginative story telling, children can appreciate beauty and learn how to discover beauty in our ordinary life. It is the first time that I try to combine 3D elements with 2D digital drawing. 

here are some inner pages in the book:

here is the plan: 

I want to print out about 500 hard copy books.it will approximately cost 3000 if contact with publishing house, then I will use rest of the money to print out some other size and format including hard cover extra large landscape and soft cover in blurb or lulu. I would also want to sell the digital version of my books on amazon .I will also use some money for developing product such as sticker , print on mugs, if there is extra budget.  

If I can successfully reach my 4K goal : I will give 100 hard copy books to Minneapolis local kids hospitals, charities, schools, libraries FOR FREE

Picture book should be read by children !!! I hope in this way, more children will be able to enjoy my story.

If I can reach 6k. My stretch goal is to print out 1000 copies.  

Reward:

  round sticker and postcard:

 I will email you high resolution PDF of the book

 Here is an example of the book, and detail inside pages: 

( large prints will be random selected from the original illustration in the book, the photo below is just an example )

 here is photos for cardboard display:

Risks and challenges

The sky above is my MFA thesis project, so all of the illustrations have been finished. The only risk is that I am not very familiar with self- publishing, but I will try hard to find more information about it and compare several different online publishing house and choose the best one.
