Hey guys! My name is Piper Thibodeau, and I’m a freelance character designer from Montreal, Quebec. I have worked on projects for Nickelodeon and Penguin Books, but a lot of people know me for my daily paintings.

Back in 2012, I challenged myself to create one painting every day before midnight. Most of my paintings are of cute animals and creatures and my endless arsenal of cringe inducing puns…
I combine both whenever I can!

It's been a crazy journey, but I'm happy to say that as I record this video I have completed over 1300 days of consistent paintings, and I can finally talk about a project that I am working on with Forge Publishing.

I have always loved the “Art of” books from animated films and it has been a dream of mine to have my art collected into a book just like that. I also get asked a lot about when I’m coming out with a book.

With help from Kickstarter and you, Forge Publishing and I are going to create a beautiful hardcover book showcasing hundreds of my best paintings from the past four years. The paintings are already complete, but putting together an art book of this size is a lot of work. This Kickstarter will help cover the costs of designing and editing the book as well as the printing and other production costs.

Of course, we have some goodies in store for all of our backers! There are various prints and stickers, a video tutorial, as well as a softcover and a digital version of the book. There are even a few commission slots for a one of kind painting all your own.

I'm really excited to see my work in print and make it available for everyone!

Thank you all so much for taking the time check out my Kickstarter campaign. If you decide to back the project, there are a lot of rewards to choose from. It would be awesome if you can take a minute to share the Daily Paintings Kickstarter campaign on social media.

 

 

The Daily Paintings art book will be a 140-plus page hardcover collection of Piper's daily paintings, concept work from personal projects. There will even be some new paintings made exclusively for the book. Daily Paintings will be a little over 9 x 11 inches and bound on the short side, which is roughly the same size as most hardcover “Art of” animation books.

The softcover version of Daily Paintings will have the same page size and content as the hardcover book. It will also have the same cover illustration as the dust jacket that will accompany the hardcover. 

 

This Kickstarter campaign is more than just a pre-order. Printing and fulfilling a thick, full color art book does account for a large portion of the campaign goal, but Piper also has a huge volume of work that needs to be collected and curated in a way that reflects her creative journey. The book itself needs to be designed and edited. We want the book to reflect the level of quality and fun everyone is used to seeing in Piper's daily paintings.

Forge Publishing is a Canadian publisher. The reward levels and shipping costs are priced in Canadian dollars. If you are backing the project from the United States or another country, the exchange rate may be in your favour!

 

 

 

 

We will be using BackerKit to handle backer surveys and manage rewards. You can also use BackerKit to add items to your reward package.

*Due to shipping costs, we are only able to offer a print copy of the book as an add-on to backers in the United States.

What is an add-on and how do they work?

An add-on is an additional Kickstarter item that you can request with your reward level for an additional cost. You get to choose! Most of the add-ons we have prepared are physical rewards like stickers, prints and a second copy of the book. There are some restrictions but the good news is, add-ons will not affect your shipping.

To include an add-on item to your pledge:

  • Add up the total of the items that you wish to add to your reward package.
  • Click "Manage Your Pledge" in the upper right of the Kickstarter page.
  • Add the total cost of your add-ons to your pledge amount. You do not need to change the reward level you have selected.
  • That’s it. You’re done!

When you receive your Backerkit survey asking you how you spent your “add-on dollars” you can choose the appropriate items from the list.

In order to add stickers or prints to your reward package you need to be backing at the $40 Hydrangea Level or above. Prints and stickers will ship anywhere in the world. Adding prints or stickers will not affect your shipping.

In order to add an additional print copy of the book to your reward package you need to be backing at the $50 Early Wyrm Level or above and have a shipping address in the United States. Adding a book, prints or stickers will not affect your shipping.

· Backers at the $5 Mini-taur Level and above will receive a high-res desktop background of Otter Space.

· This funding goal allows us to add a matte laminate coating and spot UV varnish to both the cover of softcover book and the dustcover of the hardcover book.

Risks and challenges

One of the largest challenges in taking on a project of this scale is fulfilling the backer rewards in a timely fashion. Designing the Daily Paintings book will begin immediately after we reach our goal. We plan to keep backers up to speed on the project as it develops by sharing art and page previews, as well as development milestones as we hit them. It will be an exciting journey and we want you to come along for the ride!

The second challenge of fulfilling this project will be getting your book and your rewards to you. We are working with Dave Michael of SalesGeek Consulting, an experienced fulfillment shop, and Backerkit fulfillment software in an effort to keep the fulfillment process is as smooth as possible. To date, Dave has completed the fulfillment on nine successful Kickstarter campaigns and Backerkit has helped over 1800 project creators connect with their backers.
