I would like to print highlights from my sketchbooks over the years into a collected book of work, a first volume of more to come.

WE DID IT!!!

Funds raised, book in motion, almost ready for print!! I'm SO SO excited & can't wait to get started on all these pieces of art that I'll be making for those who have pledged!

If you haven't pledged yet, I've been offering "bonus rewards" throughout the days and there are still bonuses to be claimed:

The next 2 people who donate $25 will get the $30 prize PLUS an original 4"x6" illustration on canvas!

The next 3 people who donate $50 will get the $75 prize PLUS an original 4"x6" illustration for their friend!!

Please read more about my project below or watch the video, if it's something that touches you, that you would like to see the end results of, then please pledge, all pledges beyond my initial goal go towards future projects as well as bonus rewards.

I'd also like to add some initiative for those who can't pledge as much (times are tight, I understand!) so....

The next person who donates $10 or more will receive the $20 prize.

AND

The next 3 people who donate $20 or more will get the $25 prize!!!

Thank you and Kickstarter for helping to make this a possibility.

If there's any reward/price point that you think would be a good addition to what I already have listed, please contact me & let me know-I'd love your input & will gladly consider all ideas to see if I can include them as rewards.

Also, you can have a look at pages from my sketchbook here:

If you have any requests of pages you'd like to see included in the final copy, please let me know & I'll do my best to accommodate your requests

Thank you all so much again,

Steph Davies

About my project:

Over the years I've often been that girl in the back of a coffee shop or even a bar with my head and a pen buried in a sketchbook drawing either my surroundings or some image from my head or simply jotting down words/ideas/things overheard.  In this time I've often been stopped by both strangers & acquaintances & had them ask to have a look.  I've never minded sharing and have always found it flattering that they'd want to peek at the inner workings of my mind.  It's something I understand, as I've always enjoyed a peek at others' notebooks & sketchbooks so when people started telling me I should publish my sketchbooks, I listened. I sat quietly with the idea and let it unfold and it's come to this: I'm collecting pages from sketchbooks from the last few years, highlights if you will along with some additional sketches/ramblings to be included in what I hope will be Volume One of my printed sketchbook.
