Thanks so much for visiting my Kickstarter Page!
Young adult, inspirational, art/illustration.
My young-adulthood was an extremely rough time. But now, almost in my 30's I've finally seen the other side of the dark, rainy filled tunnel. Drawing encouraging doodles has helped me get through SO many things, and while on my doodle journey, I realized they helped others as well!
While having a rough "I'm not ENOUGH" day one afternoon in early 2013 I created the VERY FIRST page of THIS book. After creating that page, I became ecstatically excited when I realized what my PURPOSE in life is!! It's to encourage as MANY PEOPLE as possible!! First stop? Tweens and teens! My goal is to write a super honest, encouraging, vibrant book with the intent to help teens feel less alone in this world. BUT a book that women [and men?!] in their 20's and beyond can enjoy as well! By using MY story, and LOTS OF colorful illustrations, my goal is that others realize they aren't alone on those dark, lowest of low days! This is my doodle dream!
Ultimately, my goal was to make THE BOOK I WISH I had when I was younger. Something easy to read and relate to, something that's visually stimulating! Something RAW and HONEST and not all sunshine and butterflies.
For the past 8 months, I have been immersed in doodle/writing land, and have created a book i've never seen in ANY bookstores. And one I WISH I had growing up! The book will be approx. 50 pages front and back, full color and FULL of silly, encouraging, very honest stories and illustrations! Body Image, Depression, Eating Disorders, and Ambition are just SOME of the topics talked about in the book.
What Will the Funding Go Towards?
What if I EXCEED my goal?!
