Help me publish 'Washington's Waltz'!

'Washington’s Waltz' is a fun look at our American presidents. This book is made for both children and adults because both could use a little help in remembering our presidents. Illustratively, I am very influenced by mid-century design and animation. Books, movies, art should all be made for everyone and I hope I can succeed in making books that are enjoyable for the very young and very old.

Plus, it's fun to draw Buchanan in a tu-tu.

The money you contribute to the 'Washington Waltz' campaign will allow the book to be self-published and printed in a nice, 8"x8", hardcover format to be sold all over! The above video shows my paperback version, but this funding will allow me to cheaply print on hardcover with a foil stamp. yay.

With the publication of 'Washington's Waltz' I will be able to work on future projects, including a book about parrot adoption that will act as a source of charity for parrot rescue.

Hopefully we can generate enough Lincolns and I can send you some fun goodies along the way.

To publish 500 copies of the hardcover it will cost $3,764.
So every cent will go to the publication/printing.
If we raise more than the $3,764 needed I will print as many copies as possible and send everyone who pledged $10 or more a copy of the book! Woo!

Thank you all, so much, for your support!
