Hi. I’m Bri. I love to draw dogs. I also love books. So I am making an illustrated book of dogs, and I want you to have one.
In the meantime, I will be drawing a dog a day at my Daily Dog Scratch Blog to prove how committed I am to this project (and how much I truly love drawing pups).
What is BARK PARK?
Bark Park is an ARFabet book that celebrates the alphabet with a letter-by-letter listing of dogs rendered in my unique approach to scratchboard. BARK PARK celebrates the magic of dogs and the equally magical alphabet without which we couldn’t even give dogs names in the first place.
The book will include illustrations of these dogs (subject to change based on your contributions -- the list will be updated here: http://bhermanson.com/doglist.html Please check regularly):
- English Bulldog
- Finnish Spitz
- Irish Wolf Hound
- Jack Russell Terrier
- Portugese Water Dog
- Queensland Heeler
- Rescue Dog
- Service Dog
- Tennessee Coon Hound
- Ultimate Mastiff
- Westhighland White Terrier
- Yorkshire Terrier
You can find more details on the right, but here is a preview of some of the rewards...
Where will this money go? Most of it will pay for the production of hardcover books. Then, there’s the materials needed to complete the project (Claybords, ink, brushes, knives, large format printing and scanning costs, etc). A small portion will be used to help me focus on the actual creation of 26 brand new scratchboard illustrations.
***Shipping is included to all in the lower 48. Alaska, Hawaii and International will be an additional $10.
Special thanks to the incredible Brooklyn band KINGS for letting me use their music in this video.
Risks and challenges
This project is a big time commitment, but it's one that I am ready to make. Having recently gone freelance full time, I feel very fortunate to have a schedule that I control completely. In the meantime, I am creating a scratchboard dog every day at http://dogscratch.tumblr.com -- if you have any doubts about my obsessive level of commitment, that should clear things up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
