    FULL COLOR MEAL

    A PRINT COPY OF THE BOOK to hold in your very own hands. I know, $33 is a lot to pay for a book, BUT. It’s BIG (10 by 11 inches!) and it’s FAT (80 pages!), and — it’s printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. That means it’s made with the fruits of your (or someone like you’s) recycling efforts, not just reams of industrial waste. It is beautiful, thick, creamy, smooth paper, too, and not a single tree died for it.

    PLUS, this reward also gets you a copy of All Round, which is (you guessed it!) printed on 100% post-consumer recycled papers well. To the best of my knowledge, no other magazines follow this trend.

    COLOR CELEBRATION

    YOUR VERY OWN COLOR PORTRAIT! You’ll answer a detailed questionnaire about color in your life (‘Is there a color you always feel happy with? What’s your favorite time of day?’ etc.), and I’ll paint a color portrait that expresses who you are on the inside, where your colors are. The portrait itself will be about 9 inches in diameter, painted with a variety of earth, plant and coal-tar (i.e. derived from oil) pigments on heavy watercolor paper. The paper itself will be 10 by 11 inches. If you request it, I’ll add wings (and hands with eyes on them!) to your color portrait, so it can fly around (that will make the actual color part a bit smaller, so the wings can fit on the paper).

    If you’d like to give this as a gift, I’ll create a portrait of anyone of your choosing, as long as they can answer my color questionnaire! Or, you can answer it brilliantly for them. : )

    Plus, you’ll also get a signed copy of the book, of course, and two copies of ALL ROUND, with FREE SHIPPING within the U.S..
