Color is amazing. It’s can evoke emotion, convey deep meaning or silly, playful nothingness. I’ve always loved to color. Most humans do as children with scribbles first then more defined strokes. Joy can come from the colors leaping across the page. As an artist I was very excited when the adult coloring book rage started but quickly became disappointed with the quality of most of the art in them and lack of subjects that interested me. I needed to color a piece of art. I needed to color a Goddess. That’s when Sovereign Goddess was born. I wanted beautiful Goddesses that were a reflection of me, my daughter, my mother, grandmother and aunts. Beautiful, bold feminine with poetry that made my soul groove. I called up my friend Artist Alley Angel Aphropik and sent her my sketches. She cooked up melodic funk in the form of poetic cadence. It made me snap my fingers and say YAASS! - inviting my synapses to create more color combinations to send down my arm into my hand that made that color pencil work, work, work - Rhianna. This Kickstarter was created to help bring this book to full print. A full color coloring book with quality paper and included Fine Art prints that any teen girl, woman or anyone who loves to color can enjoy.
Help me bring Sovereign Goddess to the masses!
Risks and challenges
The book is complete and ready for publishing. I had a very small sample made to make sure they looked and felt right when coloring. The paper is made for dry media like colored pencils and has a smooth tooth but absorbs the color well. The cost of producing a full run with best quality paper seems to be difficult most of these books are printed very cheaply so it took awhile to find a great printer. I love suppprting small local businesses so I chose a great company in Nashville who really cared and helped bring my sample to life and were genuinely interested in the project. Once the Kickstarter is complete I can get the printing orders prepared and should be able to start shipping in September.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
