Over my years of illustrating I have always been drawn to dark and upsetting imagery, this coloring book is the culmination of my experience with handling the less-than-preferable sides of our nature distilled into a pure and innocent product for you to color and enjoy.
I hope my lovely ladies keep the dark recesses of your mind entertained while you peruse through my numerous tents and watch the amazing acts on display come to life with your coloring techniques.
Below you will find all the pertinent information for this project's funding as well the rewards that are to be given to each tier.
In this project we have spent much time deliberating and discerning what we wanted to provide to our backers. You can see all the rewards within each donation tier, though, we put together a nice graphic for ya to make things a tad easier.
For this coloring book we have decided to use the Chinese company, Print Ninja, to produce high-quality, durable, and affordable books for us to enjoy and distribute to you.
(All product images are representations and details such as color, size, and cropping may differ slightly from the physical items.)
Here is an example of how our post cards and bookmarks will look.
The reward prints. (a) Fire Eater (b) Gypsy and the Mystery Print remains, well, a mystery.
This project has been priced to cover everything required to make this possible. There is little over-hang in the budget and our goal isn't to make a profit, it is to make this book. This will be a monumental success for ourselves and our community as we continue to push ourselves and each other to the next step in our artistic journeys.
Our starting goal of $3,000.00 is easy to breakdown and see where the cost comes from, shipping is no-joke! The 25% for shipping is our buffer for domestic backers and allows us to offer shipping-free tiers to those backers. Unfortunately, with the price of international shipping we are unable to offer the same to international backers while retaining a reasonable fundraising goal. $20 is the median that we found to be fair for our international supporters regardless of where they may be in the world. Shipping does vary slightly between regions and can affect the shipping by a few dollars; we have simplified this across the board to ensure that we do not eat too much of the distribution cost.
If we succeed and even surpass our goal then we attain a new one. As I am an artist I know others in this industry who are like-minded go-getters that would love to be a part of this project! If you want some guest artists for this coloring book then let's reach our new goal to accommodate the extra pages.
Thank you for sharing and telling your friends! Remember, this project is to create the book, so if you want it, help us get it!

Risks and challenges
This product is demanding on myself and my team as we tackle our first crowd-funding project. We have never attempted a crowd-fund before, but we have done a lot of research and we have learned much. As two independent artists, this is a passion project for us and has required all of our free time.
We have spent much time calculating out all the risks, however, there are risks that we cannot account for such as misprinting of the book, lost shipments, etc. Things that are out of our hands. Should any of this occur, please let us know calmly and respectfully and we will concentrate our efforts to assist your matter.
