Inkwork Fairy Tale Artbook and Moth Fairy Pin - Make/100

$19,617

568

Hi, I’m Meredith and I am known for painting watercolor fairies, but I also love anything with lines and ink. The idea for this campaign all started when I rediscovered my love of ink drawing during Inktober a few years ago. I've continued exploring ink drawings beyond Inktober. Join me and the moth fairies as I continue my ink-filled journey through faerieland. 

I’m Kickstarting a 42 page sketchbook sized art book filled with botanical fairies, tiny moth-ical fairies and mystical foxes. The book will be filled with artwork created over the last 3 years as well as more recently, as I’ve explored new techniques.

You can view more of my art on my website, or follow my updates on instagram and facebook.

The Book:

The book will be a 6x9 inch, 42 page perfect bound paperback filled cover-to-cover with ink drawings of fairies, fauns, foxes and kitsune and their forest world.

Limited Edition Pin:

Inspired by moth fairies and ginkgo trees, I have designed a limited edition of 100 moth fairy enamel pins. Each pin is made with gold colored metal, is 1.5 inches wide, and has two pinbacks (for extra security) with rubber clutches. My name is printed on the back.

Open Edition Fox Moth Pin:

Due to the popularity of the pins, I have designed a pin based on my fox moth drawing. This pin will be made with gold colored metal and 1.5 inches wide. The fox moth pin will be unlimited so If you've already backed for the moth fairy, the fox will be available as an add-on.

Foxtail Kitsune Print:

I love designing costumes for my characters! I've drawn a Japanese kitsune (fox spirit) with a nine tailed fox kimono. This will be an 8.5x11 print on heavy cardstock, with gold foil accents. (Too add on to and existing pledge please wait until after the campaign, when you will be able to do though the backerkit survey)

A Note on Shipping: While I try to keep shipping costs as low as possible, I have no control over the postal rates. International prices have gone up considerably each year for the last several years. International customers should consider the customs fees as well as any mail holding costs set by their individual countries. It will not be possible to mark packages as anything other than merchandise. 

Risks and challenges

Mishaps in printing and shipping are always a possibility but I feel confident in my chosen printer. I have not done foil printing previously, but have a backup plan if it doesn't work out.

I have successfully fulfilled three previous Kickstarters.
