Everyone has bad days, the type where it seems like you'll never smile again. When life gets you down the one tried and true method of smiling again is looking at silly pictures of cats.
When I was suffering through my worst depressive episodes my cat is the one who got me through them. When a lot of my friends were going through hard times as well I started drawing silly cats to make them smile and it just spiraled out of control from there. Now whenever I see someone I know who is sad or struggling I take out my tiny cat paintings and flip through them until they smile again.
I want to raise the money to make a full color art book so that I can spread some smiles and hopefully make people feel better for a little while.
To do this I need the money to print a book that I can be proud of and make sure it's of good enough quality to put it out there on the market which I need the help on.
I also need help from you to think of more ideas so that everything that can make someone smile is in there in some way or another. That's why there's the option to submit ideas.
I'm asking for $700 so that I can print 100+ copies of the book and cover shipping them all out. If I somehow manage to raise more than that all money will be put into making the books bigger and better so that way you're getting more for your money.
Here's a preview of what you're in for if you decide to get the book:
Risks and challenges
I want to try to get the books out by the winter holidays but I'm not sure if I can so if there isn't a way to get them back from the printer on time I will send out holiday cards to everyone who ordered one so that they will have a placeholder for the actual gift until it arrives.
Other than that the only setback is making sure that everything is the best quality possible. I've done a ton of research about the printing options and companies so I'm sure that everything will turn out wonderfully.
