Coloring is fun and so are magical girls! Naturally, coloring magical girls will be extra, super fun! Support this project to help me produce a book of beautifully detailed illustrations of original magical girls!
The 8" x 10" (approx. 20cm x 25cm) books will be printed via Smartpress.com on 100# cover, uncoated smooth paper. They will be coil bound along the top. The paper weight has tested well with colored pencil, crayon, and markers. Each page will have a blank backside to avoid problems with bleed of art materials. Books ship worldwide and shipping is free for all US backers.
Backers receive exclusive access to WIPs of the book art during and after the campaign. Plus, every backer gets a surprise digital coloring page just for supporting the project!
The following is a breakdown of the costs to make this project:
$350 for Print Production & Shipment
$400 for Art Production
$50 for Fees
$50 Buffer for Additional Costs
If more books are produced than needed to fill Kickstarter orders, the additional books will be sold online and at conventions.
After reaching our stretch goals, the book is currently at 25 pages (20 by me and 5 guest pages). Additional pages may become available as the campaign proceeds! Check updates for more information.
This goal unlocked at $1000! This means I will add 5 more illustrations and bring the total number of illustrations to 20! A perforated edge will be on each page for easy removal.
$1500 funding level, we unlocked detailed backgrounds to all the pages drawn by me. The paper in the book will also be upgraded to thicker stock with no bleed in marker tests.
A funding level of $2000 unlocked designs by Guest Artists!

Risks and challenges
I am making the art during and after the campaign, so part of the fun will be watching the work develop. I do not have any conventions or major obligations this fall so keeping up with this will be my primary focus, however there's always a risk that life could throw in a surprise. For that reason, I've estimated the delivery in March 2017 to account for potential, unexpected events, and to give me enough time to complete all the art, order the books (including a full proof), and get everything shipped.
I have used this printer before with my pose reference books and they have been fantastically reliable. In the case they cannot do the project for some unforeseen reason, I have additional options for print including through CreateSpace or Lulu.
If you have any questions about me or the project, please feel free to message me. Thanks so much for your considered support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
