I'm Cori Redford. I make art. You can see and buy my art on sites like Redbubble. I am also a gamer of the RPG, video game, and board varieties. I'm not a starving artist, but I'm very hungry.
My Project: Dungeons After Dark
I'm making an adult coloring book called Dungeons After Dark. Adult coloring books are a relaxing and meditative way to transition from a difficult day at work, and a great way to connect with your inner child. This particular adult coloring book is of fantasy creatures and races in pin-up poses. A few are in action poses; all are just being their sexy selves.
Here are some images that will be in the book:
How My Twisted Mind Works
One day I was playing a role-playing game (RPG) with my regular group. (Spelljammer, if you're curious.) In the game my friend Soranna is a gnome with a slight obsession with dwarves and halflings. In game, as a gift someone gave her a flask with a dwarf in a pin-up pose etched on it. I decided to draw a picture of that dwarf. She was delighted and several people around the table said that they would be happy to buy a book or coloring book of similar images. Thus an idea was born.
As soon as this Kickstarter successfully concludes, I'll order a print run of 500+ copies of Dungeons After Dark from a printing company. I will also provide electronic copies through the awesome people at DriveThruRPG.
I have a great deal with a printer in China, but I'm hoping that a local printer will be able to print for a similar (though likely higher) price. Assuming that the printing is started within a month of the Kickstarter's end, I think that copies should be in the mail by the end of October. If it gets drastically overfunded, most if not all copies should be mailed before Christmas.
How I Plan to Spend the Gold
The entirety of the funding goal will cover printing, packaging, and postage. More than that will be profit to pay for my work and time. Extravagant overfunding will allow me to swim in a pond of money like Scrooge McDuck.
Risks and challenges
I have already completed final art on the book, including the cover. All that remains is some thank-yous, an ISBN, and some saucy flavor text.
If my project is dramatically over-funded, the printing will take longer, as will the fulfillment. In that case I will sort the backers into groups based on when you pledged, and mail accordingly. Frankly, I don't expect to be over-funded, but I am prepared even for the unlikely.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
