The Book

Penguin & Peep Little Moments will be a full color printed comic book collecting the adventures of Penguin & Peep.

Penguin & Peep's Story

Penguin lived in the zoo alone, but one day peep flew by and became his friend. Now she shares her world with him and they have happy days together.

Penguin

Penguin likes his home in the zoo, and usually needs a little help to go outside his comfort zone. Trying new things often scares him, but Peep helps him find the fun in being adventurous. As long as Peep is with him, he’ll face all his fears.

Peep

Peep loves all things bright and happy. She is always seeking a new adventure, but never alone. Penguin is her best friend and she loves it when he explores with her. She’s likely to get into trouble, always jumping into something before thinking, so it’s a good thing Penguin’s there to help her out.

My Story

Hi there! I’m Monica, the creator of Penguin & Peep. I love all things cute (obviously) and I’m so excited to share Penguin & Peep’s story of friendship with you! I started creating art prints with these little ones back in 2012 and a print book of their adventures is long overdue. My inspiration for their stories comes from my time working at the San Diego Zoo as a caricaturist and from the experiences of my everyday life. I hope you’ll enjoy these little moments shared by a pair of unlikely friends.

 Comic Con Dreams do Come True!

This year I was accepted to have a table at San Diego Comic Con in their small press area! Having a table at Comic Con is something I’ve dreamed about since my dad took me there as a young girl. I remember being awestruck at meeting Stan Sakai, Don Bluth, and so many other great creators in person. They casually talked to me, encouraged me, and even handed out free sketches! I couldn’t believe such amazing artists were right there in front of me. I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to finally participate in and contribute to this community that has helped me become who I am today! I have big plans for Penguin & Peep and in the future hope to do more comics, children’s books, and animation of their adventures. Please join me in bringing their stories to life!

How Can My Pledge Help?

The printer I work with will print in flexible quantities, but the more copies I can have printed at one time, the lower the cost per book. I can afford to print about 100 copies now, but my goal is to print at least 300 which will decrease the cost per book by about $1.50 per book. On 300 copies, that saves $450! Not to mention, the cost of the book to buyers will go down, and the book will be available to more wonderful people like you!

Risks and challenges

I’ve worked as an illustrator on many children’s books and I know every project has that moment where something isn’t working and needs to be changed- mistakes in the art, text, or printing. Thankfully, since the artwork is nearly all finished, most of the possible problems that come with creating have already been dealt with. The main challenge is to raise the funds in time to bring these books to Comic Con as I’ve promised! I have a great local printer that I’ve worked with before, and I know he usually has a fast turnaround, so with your help in raising what’s needed for the printing costs we will have overcome the biggest challenge! Together, I know we can do it!

Estimated Expense Breakdown:
5% Kickstarter
25% Rewards/Shipping
70% Book Printing

Thank you so much for learning about the project! I know you’ve made Penguin & Peep’s day (and mine too)!
