About

 

 

I've taken my two favorite things, cute guys and animals, and combined them in a fabulously unique coloring book. In contrast to the many coloring books out there, every one of the fifteen pages in 'Pretty Boys and Animals' features an engaging subject who tells a story. They're looking at you, they're posing, they're performing on paper, waiting for you to give them the final touch into a life of color.

There are no repetitive patterns or pictures, only full illustrations. The goal is that you won't cast any pages aside because they're ordinary, but instead you will want to color every single one. When you sit down to color, I want you to have an experience and interact with the page. Be an artist, imagine the story in your head and complete it.

 

Quality.

The pages are printed on 190gsm A4 artist paper in pure white. This thickness allows for saturation from markers and is resistant to harsh treatment. And it looks beautiful.

While there is no paper that will handle all mediums perfectly, I chose one that comes as close as possible. You can use any medium you like as long as you respect the limitations of the paper. Even water color will work (as seen in the video), as long as you don't wet the paper too much.

The book is wrapped in plastic and backed onto thick card stock to prevent damage and bending during shipping. The pages are presented in a pad, held together at the top by a non-stick adhesive. No fuss, no torn pages, simply pull out the page you wish to color. This prevents the pages underneath from getting stained, and then you can proudly hang your work

 

All rewards include shipping, so you are only making a one-time contribution. 

Note: Due to the high cost of shipping, it is cheaper for everyone if rewards of more than one book are shipped in separate packages to the same address. This may vary from tier to tier, but all shipping costs have already been taken into consideration

 

With your help I know we can make the $6.000 goal. But why stop there? I hope to see this book continue print online and on shelves in bookstores. I really believe the quality and novelty is there to set Pretty Boys and Animals apart. If we reach these goals, you get more for your pledge. Let's do it!

 

 

To all that have encouraged me during the creation of Pretty Boys, and to those who will support me and bring it to life. None of this is possible without you <3

Risks and challenges

All the art is made and finalized. Shipping costs have been calculated and considered. A test copy was published at a local printing company. Staying local gives me total control over the quality of my books and access to a quick solution, should something go awry. Once the project is funded, it will take no more than 1-2 weeks to go to print. After that, it's as simple as sending them out.

I have full quality control, a great relationship with a local printing company, and most important, a finished product. All I need is your support to bring this project to life!
