Not everyone can confront drawing or painting but they can definitely confront coloring. What better gift to give that friend or family member in your life that has been struggling to create?

Michelangelo

With this book in the hands of every person on this planet there won’t be any need to fight and destroy each other when people are too busy creating a better world. The way to change things is to get people to create them and this book gets people to create on a massive level.

Emily Bronte

Why is this book called Artists Run This Planet? Because nothing important happens on this planet of ours unless some creative individual has an idea and puts it into effect. Artists create the future reality. Whether they call themselves artists or not, it is the creative dreamer and doer that shapes mankind.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare

Everything from castles to skyscrapers, telescopes to iPad tablets, the Mona Lisa to the selfie, has been the result of bold, idea-making individuals. Artists keep the world running, moving and progressing.

 Supporting art and artists, rehabilitating creativity and motivating it upwards is probably the greatest pursuit we can put our attention on. This book is an attempt to do that. Thank you for supporting it, because you are helping to build a better world by doing so. I hope you have fun coloring every page, get inspired and create something wonderful. Ignite the world with your art!

BUDGET 

Our goal is set at $8,000 which covers manufacturing and shipping from our printer, then packaging and shipping from Austin, Texas to our backers, as well as production and shipping of the other rewards such as prints, t-shirts and gel pens. We have built this Kickstarter without limits because we want to reach the world and put this book within reach of everyone. As much as we raise will determine how many people will be impacted by the book. The $8,000 goal covers basic expenses but we know we can raise significantly more and reach thousands of people, if not millions, with enough support.

TIMELINE

As soon as the Kickstarter is finished we have suppliers chosen and everything ready to order and it should take no longer than 4-6 weeks for all rewards to be in the hands of our backers. We worked hard for this book and want you to enjoy it as soon as possible. The sooner we get this book to people, the sooner we get more art and artists changing the world for the better.

Risks and challenges

This project has come with many challenges, most of them already overcome, but the biggest challenge involves getting the word out to as many people as possible.

Without people like you spreading the word and getting involved, sharing links, emailing and texting your friends, this book won't reach the masses.

It's an important project that will truly shift the direction of the world if enough people take it on. There's 7 billion people to reach and that's definitely a challenge, however reaching those billions of people is going to be one of the greatest rewards to be had.

Are there risks? Hell yes. If we don't reach enough people fast enough their attention will continue towards the nightly news rather than the daily planet.

It will be a super heroic task to handle and fulfill the rewards of a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign but with your support and such a good purpose, we're confident we can meet the challenge. After all, we're artists and ARTISTS RUN THIS PLANET.
