Hello Girl Power.

Change Makers. Risk Takers. Movers. Shakers.

Resisters features 50 lesser known but hugely significant women who have rattled the world. Their irreverence and gumption warms my heart. That is exactly why I have created this coloring book, to celebrate the standout sisters who have shaken off hand-wringing and been major innovators, artists, and all-around Lady Bosses. 

So who is in the coloring book? Women from every field, from fashion to micro biology, who have disturbed the status quo. Think:

  • Josephine Baker
  • Ursula Nordstrom
  • Ada Lovelace
  • Madam C.J. Walker
  • Hedy Lamarr
  • Billie Holiday

Let's Talk About the Coloring Book

I wish growing up I had more of Julia Child's effervescence, that I could have emulated the notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg's strength. Everyone can be inspired by these women, which is why Resisters is a coloring book for all ages, genders, and nationalities. This coloring book is perfect for anyone who loves to color or is interested in the unsung history of empowered women. 

The coloring book is composed of 50 portraits, with a quick bio or a quote on the facing page. The last page of the coloring book features an empty frame, a place where you can add your portrait and story to the book. 

I am working with a local printer to make Resisters a high quality production. The paper is beautiful and thick for minimal bleeding. I'm an aesthetics person; it is important to me that Resisters is something you could leave on your coffee table. 

 

Risks and challenges

The illustrations for the book are nearly complete, and just need to go through a bit of an editing process. I have an great local printer that is able to fulfill the demands beautifully and with a great turnaround time.

I'll be straight up: the biggest risk to this project is that I am 41 weeks pregnant. Knowing this, if fulfillment becomes an issue, I am all set to hire a local team to help me ship orders. Trust me, I am fully prepared to deliver (in every sense).

You can confidently back this project, knowing that rewards will be fulfilled in a timely manner, and the end result will be awesome.
