The What & Why 

    Colouring books have taken the world by storm. They are being used as a fun tool to practice mindfulness, reduce stress, and harness creativity. I want to take this one step further by partnering those elements with inspiration by focusing on women change-makers of the world and the amazing accomplishments they have achieved. My designs will incorporate a visual interpretation of the inspiring women themselves partnered with symbolism and design elements that really bring to life their diverse cultures, personalities, and achievements.

     With this project I want to marry my love of art to my love of learning and with this colouring book I aim to do so through the many benefits of colouring.

      I have begun working towards this dream by researching women of distinction both historical and contemporary. I've already put some to paper readying them for final editing in Photoshop to clean up lines and have a crisp final image for printing. But I'm also hoping to have your help not only as a backer but as a collaborator as well. I still need suggestions of more women to fill out this book and want to know who has inspired you!

What You Get

  • 8.5" x 11" 
  • LayFlat Laminate Softcover Bound (Hardcover for Limited Edition)
  • Full colour cover
  • 32 page book - 30 black and white pages full of inspiring women from around the world

Risks and challenges

I've been working closely with an amazing self-publishing company in Winnipeg called Art Bookbindery who have experience with Kickstarter campaign fulfillments.
There is a lot of art to produce in order to fulfill my project goals but I'm excited at the prospect of completion and know that your support will drive me to produce an amazing book!
I don't anticipate any kind of risks or challenges.
