Dooks -- short for "dookie"  meaning poop...

Most of the content of the book is my morning "dooks"/ warmups and exercises that I posted online as well as some never posted. Thus  "Puttin Up Dooks" was the theme of this collection

Collecting the dooks..
Collecting the dooks..
My name is Mel Milton and I've been drawing my whole life. I've been in the creative industry for 20 years, many of which I spent in the games industry. I have also illustrated a children's book for a major publisher. Now, I am looking to raise funds for my first art book: Dooks Vol 1: The Ladies.
This book has been a goal of mine for many years, and I was happy to accomplish that goal at the end of last year. I would have liked to get this book into more people's hands, but the high cost of printing a small run has kept me from moving forward with it. With some prodding from friends, I decided to see if there was enough interest in the book that I could do a bigger run. This would make it possible to get the price down, use higher quality materials, as well as make a hardback version. With your support, I will be able to achieve those goals. Please share with those you feel would enjoy it, and thanks for your consideration. Keep on keepin on!

Risks and challenges

I don't see any immediate risks in printing this book, as it has been published before. I plan on making some additions, including a thank you page with the names of all the backers who contribute, which will be a simple process.
