The Creature Compendium: An Art and Coloring Book

$7,663

173

I've been drawing creatures for as long as I can remember. Over the years I've had friends and family express their desire to be able to color the creatures that I've brought to life. Unfortunately as I too wanted to color the pieces I was drawing the option wasn't as readily or easily available. This last year I decided to change that. 

In making a coloring book I am giving many the chance to be able to enjoy the fantasy creatures that I so adore. These creatures have leaped from my imagination and onto these ready to color pages. 

This Kickstarter is the jumping point of not only being able to bring a different sort of coloring book to the market but also to launch my career as a self sustained artist. 

Each book will contain 30 creatures. All pages have a main image and an intricately designed border. On the backs of every page you will find some carefully documented information about where these creatures came from, their personalities, and a map so you can locate them on your journeys.

The Creatures List ((what's already in the book))

The goal for this Kickstarter contained more math than I'd like to admit to doing. I wanted to make sure every cost was already calculated into the overall price of each book. When you purchase the book for US shipping, the cost of the shipping is already factored in. The cost for international shipping is still being researched to try to find the most cost effective way to ship these books around the world.

With that, the initial funding goal for this project allows me to cover the cost of printing, and packaging, and shipping within the US. Depending on over funding goals I am hoping to reach a point that I can offer free shipping and handling to the rest of the world as well. 

This book was hand drawn and printed in Idaho.

Risks and challenges

The great thing about this coloring book is that almost all the art is already completed. Only the 10 backer sponsored pages will need to be completed once the campaign is over.

A printer for the coloring book is already lined up and ready to go.
--All that is needed now are the pre-orders and funding for the printing.
