Wander is my 2018 summer travel sketchbook!  What started as a fun and personal way to record my many planned travels turned into Wander.  Last year, I went to Disneyland, LA/Orange County, Seattle, Las Vegas, a road trip from Vancouver to Saskatoon, Iceland, Amsterdam, Alaska, Japan, and more.  I sketched in ink and watercolor and did a few digital plein air illustrations on the go.  I drew some of the beautiful places I saw, amazing food I ate, interesting people I came across, and my journal is littered with notes and stories recapping the details of my adventures. Wander will also feature bonus sections of my travel photos, additional stories and a breakdown of my travel supplies!

The Wander enamel pin set is inspired by my summer travels.  My digital camera, 35mm film camera, paint palette, and passport/ticket.  These are my travel essentials, and you too can take these along your adventures too!

This summer journey was such a beautiful and life changing experience, and I am so proud of this completed sketchbook.  I learned so much and some of my best work is in this book. I'm so thrilled to bring this project to you, and the world!

Wander will be a soft cover, perfect bound 50+ page art book.  Containing the entirety of my 2018 summer watercolor travel sketchbook, digital studies, travel photos, and more!  Soft laminate cover with deluxe details and a thank you page in the back for shout outs to every Kickstarter contributor!

Risks and challenges

This is my first ever Kickstarter project! But, I have years of experience with self publishing solo and group art books and making enamel pins. My full time work is making art and merchandise for my online shop and convention appearances. I also manage order distribution for 5 shops and ship out over 200 orders a month. I have years of experience communicating with manufacturers, keeping deadlines, managing high volume order fulfillment, and creating high quality products meant to last. I am very confident this will go smoothly!

Communication and transparency is of highest importance to me and I will be sending routine updates about the project so everyone knows whats going on, as well as making sure I am available to answer any questions about the project! I have factored in tons of variables while planning and I will be personally handling the process to make sure everyone gets what they pledged for in the delivery window. I am so so excited to get Wander in your hands!!!
