The coloring book

The Coloring Trees is an inspirational workbook. Beside each tree is my thought process, the path I took to discover that particular drawing.  12 trees and 12 stories rendered in black and white, ready for color. I had so much fun making this book and I'm excited for everyone to see it and to be able to color in their own copy.

The book itself measures 8x11 and is printed on a stiff cardstock and staple bound. The current page count is 26 pages, including introduction and artist information and leaving space for the names of those who support the project. 

The prints

I have colored some of these trees myself already. These interpretations are available as prints at 8x11 print size.  Prints size 3x5 are available as add ons.

Risks and challenges

I am new to this. But my Collaborator isn't. Sandra Tayler is a seasoned kickstarter deliverer and is going to help me not make newbie mistakes.

Printing delays. I've worked with this printer before and they've always been prompt. And if delays do happen, I will make sure to keep you updated on the situation.

There is no risk of this project not being completed after it funds. This book is ready to go to print right now! We just need the finances.
