Hi, I'm Beatrice Blue. I'm a Montreal-based illustrator and storyteller from Spain, who loves exploring and adventures. You might know me from Instagram, where I started the #ChildhoodWeek challenge, or my Once Upon a Unicorn Horn book.
To say thank you to all those who enjoy my work and continuously support me throughout my journey, I am very excited to announce this campaign to launch my first art book – Wonder.
I want to create a book that illustrates the explorative and imaginative mindset, and inspires readers to seek the wonders all around them to always grow as artists.
Across the pages of Wonder, I will share my design insights and discuss the elements of my work that help me to tell enchanting stories. You will discover my detailed thoughts on how and where I find my inspiration and ideas, how I turn ideas into illustrations, as well as my process of understanding concepts and developing them in both traditional and digital media. This book will also contain an extensive collection of my best artwork, including new designs and characters, as well as never-before-seen sketches.
Throughout its creation, I consider WONDER to be a new piece of art in itself. My aim is to make it feel like a treasure to keep with you at all times. It will be finished with beautiful magical effects, such as glow-in-the-dark accents, and its handy portable size makes it perfect to carry on your own adventures, to read wherever and whenever you want.
As this is quite an ambitious project, I am super happy to be working with 3dtotal Publishing, who are experienced in creating many amazing artbooks and educational resources for artists.
If this campaign is successful in funding, I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
Below are the exclusive items you can receive across the tiers, that are only available during this campaign. Some tiers are limited though, so get yours quick and don't miss out!
I am offering a selection of signed, first edition copies of the book across a selection of tiers. There will only be a limited number of these available, so make sure to secure yours before they're gone!
You can also pledge for an eco-friendly canvas tote bag screen-printed with glow-in-the-dark ink along with your copy of the book!
Tiers 12-16 are limited to only one backer each. These tiers include an original piece created by me, as well as a signed copy of the book, a tote bag, a riso print, and a set of enamel pins.
Little Pow: Markers, oil colored pencils and neon pencils on cold pressed Canson watercolor paper.
Wolf boy: Oil colored pencils, neon pencils and oil pastels on cold pressed Strathmore watercolor paper.
Storm: Gouache, oil pastels, neon pencils and oil colored pencils on cold pressed Strathmore watercolor paper.
Bird Girls: Oil colored pencils and neon pencils on cold pressed Strathmore watercolor paper.
Wonder: Pencil, markers, oil colored pencils, neon pencils and oil pastels on handmade watercolor paper.
There are also opportunities to receive an A4 riso print, designed by me, with your copy of the book.
ENAMEL PIN SET
Additionally, I have designed four enamel pins for this campaign. These are only offered across certain tiers, so make sure to select the right tier if you would like these pins.
As previously mentioned, launching this book through Kickstarter allows us to thank those who made this book possible by adding stretch goal rewards to the campaign. I have designed three high-quality rewards to be given away if we can meet certain targets. The more the campaign funds, the more exclusive items we can give our supporters!
Stretch goals are available to all backers from Tier 2 and above.
Thank you for your interest in this project. I hope you will consider joining me on this journey to help me turn this book into a reality.
3dtotal Publishing is able to ship worldwide! Simply select your pledge option and your location, and Kickstarter will calculate the shipping for you.
All rewards will be sent out at the same time (both signed and unsigned). However, if there is a very high number of backers, please keep in mind that it will take us a few days to work our way through packaging all the rewards. 3dtotal Publishing has a fulfilment company lined up to do this as quickly as possible, so once dispatched, rewards should reach you in 10-15 working days.
We have fulfilled many successful Kickstarters and we have a great record for delivering parcels around the world. For this campaign we will only be offering tracked shipping to certain locations as we're really determined that you receive your parcel first time without any hiccups or problems with delivery. Parcels sent to the UK, USA and Europe will be sent using our regular and reliable service.
Unforeseen delays that are out of our control can occur during delivery, so please allow an additional two weeks before checking up on your package. We will be doing our best to make sure everything gets to you on time!
For those who are not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a worldwide crowd-funding platform for artists and their creative projects. Once the funding period ends, we will start finalizing the book and the extra rewards, which will be sent to you in December. About a month before that, we will send you a survey through Kickstarter, asking for your address – the reason we wait until a few weeks before is so that we have everyone’s most up-to-date details. When the survey is ready for you to fill in, you will receive an email through Kickstarter. We ask that you fill the survey in as soon as possible, to avoid any delays in sending out your reward!
As seasoned users of Kickstarter, 3dtotal Publishing know that a very small number of backers don’t fill in the survey at the end of a Kickstarter campaign, making it impossible for us to process and ship their rewards. 3dtotal pledges to hold all rewards for backers that fail to fill in their survey for 12 months and to make multiple efforts to contact the backers in question to try to successfully deliver their items.
Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges will be producing and delivering everything to you on time. We've selected an expert printer to work with and a fulfilment company 3dtotal Publishing has an established relationship with, so everything is in place as much as possible to ensure smooth production and delivery by the end of December 2019.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
