About

Please go to our website Rainbowsq.com or our Halcyon Trails Facebook page to follow the next exciting steps of our project. Many thanks to our supporters!

Project Description:

We gathered 12 amazing Portland artists and asked them to draw their love of Portland for our special version of a coloring book called Halcyon Trails Portland. The work we received was unique, beautiful, and is now ready for you to add color.

You can find out more about us, the art and the artists on our Halcyon Trails Facebook or on our website Rainbowsq.com or catch a glimpse below of the full collection.

The artists have already been paid. We also want to inhabit a world where art is a part of everyday life. To further that goal, a portion of all proceeds from Halcyon Trails will go Portland Child Art Studio, a local non-profit whose mission is to support the perceptual development of children through artistic learning. Thanks so much for being a part of our project!  

Halcyon Trails Portland will be printed locally, sustainably, and on color-friendly card stock. It will be packaged loose-leaf to be framable, mailable, sharable and fridge-magnet ready. Each packet of 24 cards will have 12 unique images (5” x 7”), drawn by 12 local Portland artists. A second copy of each print will be included for you to add to your collection or share.

Exclusively created for Kickstarter rewards, a special edition of a Ryan Berkley original print card (3.5" x 5") will also be included at each level of funding.

Risks and challenges

In our current day jobs as managers of large and small marketing campaigns we understand what it takes to bring an idea to life and then to market successfully. Our biggest challenge is that adult coloring books are a hot new product category that could fizzle out as a fad. However, we believe our commitment to local artists and quality production will elevate our product beyond just a trend within the marketplace.

We intend to place our collection in targeted retail stores in Portland. Our product is Portland–centric which could limit our growth, but we are assured that the local marketplace can sustain us, not only because of local interest, but because our product doubles as a unique tourist memento. Recent numbers from Travel Portland have reported a very hot tourism market locally with 8.6 million overnight visitors in 2014 and more projected for 2015.
