"The Bean is continuing epic fantasy story of a dishwasher." Which you can read in it's entirety so far at  www.beanleafpress.com


 6 months ago we started a Kickstarter project to fund vol 1 of the Bean. I was very touched by the response and have been asked when Vol 2 would be ready for it's own kickstarter project. Well it is ready.

The Bean vol 2: the Lost Prince  is a graphic novel which will contain the next 4 books of the story. Issues 5-8. The saga of our young dishwasher continues as he must try to survive the next portion of his incredible adventure.... Like Vol 1: Riddles and Shrooms, vol 2 contains a 152 pages of story and few extras. Plus everyone that pledges to this project will find their name in the book.

As an independent creator and father of 5 it hard to get projects off the ground and keep them going. It has been through the wonderful gift of kickstarter that has helped get us going and hopefully continue on. So I present my project to you to help me get this done plus share it with like minded people.

All the artwork for vol 2 is all but done. All I need to do is finish the cover art. The printer has been chosen and I want my work to be affordable to others, so I have worked really hard to keep the quotes low. I also want to make sure that Vol 2 was done right. So here are the specs. I will constantly post cover art and such here and at my website. I figure this project once funded will be completed in less than 2 months.

The Bean, vol 2: the Lost Prince by Travis Hanson 172 pages (152 pages of story + extra art b/w) with a Full Color wrap-around cover. The printing cost for the first 2000 books with shipping is $5200 not including isbn fees and registration which after all is figured will hit about $6700 mark.  All I will need is $5000, I will be putting in $1700 of my own money after the project funds to help make this work. It is important for me to support my project as well, it strengthens my commitment to it. PLUS I will cover all Shipping!

One day when the story is all done (36 issues total or 9 volumes) I will go back and color it all. Right now the goal is to finish the story.

I am a strong believer that all dreams are possible, if you want it bad enough. 

Thanks again for all your support.
