Ornamentium: A Coloring Book

$6,574

***UPDATE***

*All* donations, regardless of amount, will now come with a FREE downloadable, printable PDF of one of my pages.  I want you all to know how much I appreciate your support!  <3  Be sure to provide your email address so I can send you a link!

-------------------------------------------

Greetings!

I am working to convert 25+ intricate and beautiful drawings of mine into a coloring book format to publish.  And all it takes from you is the cost of a latte - *every* little bit helps.  <3
Funds will be used for supplies, shipping, and most importantly, digital conversion, printing, publishing, and shipping costs. Right now publishing estimates are at about $5,000 - $6,000 so whatever you can give will definitely help make Ornamentium a reality.

All pages are first conceptualized in pencil on bristol paper, then inked in by hand.  Once complete, they are scanned, cleaned up a bit, and then the ultimate goal is to have them printed on high-quality, bleed-proof perforated pages in a book.  The more funds I am able to raise, the better the quality and the more copies of Ornamentium I can have printed.  So every dollar definitely helps!  Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions - thank you so very much!

Risks and challenges

Learning the ins and outs of publishing and promotion are the trickiest bit. I have been drawing all my life, so that part is easy. Also, each page is handcrafted before scanning, which takes quite a bit of time but as you can see, the effort is well worth it. Please feel free to share my Kickstarter page with others - the more the merrier!
