Step into the wacky and mystical world of the Horndribbles, where kids and adults alike can embark on a wild adventure with these fun-loving monsters!
Toys, what a wonderful word. Toys allow us to unleash our creativity-- whether we are children or adults. They are a portal to imaginary worlds with the ability to form friendships and connections that may be missing in our everyday lives. Every parent knows that there is something precious about a child lost in play with their favorite toys.
When I was young and I heard about "monsters," I conjured up images of scary otherworldly animals that were hiding in my closet or lurking under my bed just waiting to grab me when the lights went out.
That is why, as an artist, the monsters I create are not the scary beings from my childhood. These characters are fun, playful, and quirky. I call them The Horndribbles! There is Zapp, Hux, Mosby, and Meeks. They show kids that not all monsters are scary. The Horndribbles are different, which makes them unique and special.
After college, I fell in love with fabric and sewing, which allowed me to turn my drawings of the Horndribbles into actual hand-made plush sculptures. I began exhibiting them in Denver art shows and quickly gained a dedicated following in the community. The kids and parents who attended my art shows connected with the Horndribbles, thus inspiring my passion even more.
I wanted to tell The Horndribble story to the children and parents who were drawn to them. So, I began to envision their world and created Horndribble Island, a wilderness of endless places to explore!
This led me to co-author a children’s book based around my favorite characters. The first book is called: Adventures of the Horndribbles: Zapp and the Oogah-Oogah Nut.
The stories are immersive and an interactive experience for kids and parents. I want families to get lost in this fantastical world with these wonderful characters.
I'd love the opportunity to continue the journey with my second book. I will bring the same level of detail and artistry as I did the first book.
This Kickstarter campaign will allow me to:
· Work with the same amazing graphics artist that I did for the first children's book
· Hire an editor/proofreader
· Pay for the cost of high-quality printing of this hardcover book
· Publish 1,000 or more copies.
Thank you, Kickstarter community, for allowing me to tell my story and for coming along on this adventure with me (Zapp, Hux, Mosby and Meeks!)

Risks and challenges
If we are fortunate enough to get funded, we will work diligently to deliver the book by April 2014. We've stated a delivery date of April, but if all goes well, we hope to have The Adventures of The Horndribbles: Meeks and the Great Invention! in your hands even earlier.
For all the people who make pledges for the Holiday Gift Packs, we will ship all the available items by December 16th for you to receive them in time for the holiday season.
For all of the very generous pledges who will be receiving a custom one-of-a-kind, handmade Horndribble character, monster hat or monster suit from Lucas Richards we will reach out to you in January 2014 to coordinate all the details. Please allow six weeks for production of these unique Horndribble items.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
