You Need More Badass Feminists In Your Life

Hi! Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Ijeoma - a feminist writer and speaker living in Seattle. 

this is me
this is me

Most people know me as a professional wet blanket, but I have a secret that I'm sharing with you: I love coloring. 

From my Barbie coloring books of youth to my work on Illustrator today - I've never tired of giving people pink hair and green skin. Coloring is fun and calming for me. 

I started drawing people I love and respect because, let's face it, the world can be pretty sh**ty sometimes and adoringly painting the faces of friends really made me feel better.

I have been sharing some of these pictures on social media and the response has been wonderful - turns out a lot of you enjoy coloring AND feminism! From those drawings, the idea for the Badass Feminist Coloring Book was born.

Who's in this book?

This book has a collection of well known feminists like writer Lindy West and comedian/writer Jenny Yang and everyday badass feminists that you haven't met yet, but who have awesome things to say. These people are writers, comedians, mothers, daughters, sex workers. There are feminists of different ages, races, body types, gender identities - this is the intersectional feminist coloring book you've been waiting for.

Featured Feminists so far(note, this list is very likely to grow and change):

Wagatwe Wanjuki, Lindy West, Hari Kondabolu, Kimya Dawson, Feminista Jones, Jenny Yang, Jennifer Pozner, Margaret Corvid, Madison Foster, Marcella Arguello, Elicia Sanchez, Betsey Brock, Kaylani Perisho, Avital Nathman,  Michi Trota, Talcott Broadhead,  AND MORE

Awesome pictures, inspiring quotes - and you can scribble on their faces- this book has it all!

Gimme the book details.

This is a coloring book printed on high quality paper made by - you know- professional book makers. I plan on featuring at least 20 different feminists - however, if the funding is there, I'll definitely add more. Each feminist gets their own page and a badass feminist quote, like this:

a page from the Badass Feminist Coloring Book
a page from the Badass Feminist Coloring Book

Where does the money go?

I think it's obvious from the goal that nobody is trying to get rich here, but let me break down where the $4k is going:

25% gratuity for the feminists featured (I don't believe feminists should work for free)

30% printing and shipping

30% labor and artwork fees (I'm drawing every one of these pages)

15% fees, unanticipated costs etc.

Risks and challenges

Provided I don't suddenly lose my ability to draw - there aren't many risks to this project. I've calculated printing costs - but in case my math is off, I hope to use some of that 15% cushion to cover it. I may have to revise the shipping date if we get a lot of orders to process, but that's about all I can think of!
