STRIPTASTIC! is a coffee-table book of illustrations, interviews, and data collected from a survey I conducted with nearly 300 strippers from around the world. If you're looking for a redemption narrative about a woman who feels ashamed about her body and the choices she's made, you might not want to pledge this campaign. STRIPTASTIC! is a celebration of dope-ass cunts who like money. It's a full-color, 150-page educational (and certainly entertaining) journey through the days and nights of life as a stripper.

Why Kickstarter?

My last book, The Beaver Show, I printed using Amazon Createspace, which is great for the written word and print-on-demand. I used Kickstarter to finance the book tour which was an incredible and rewarding experience. With STRIPTASTIC!, I'm aiming higher: I want it to actually be striptastic, and that means full-colour, hard-cover, and oozing with the respect and notoriety all my stripper sisters deserve. Books like this have to be printed in runs of at least 1000, which means I need your help.

By backing this project, you're ensuring that STRIPTASTIC! gets made, and that you'll be the first people to receive it.

$40 - Signed & Smooched copy of STRIPTASTIC! 

$65 - Signed & Smooched copy of STRIPTASTIC! and a Kickstarter-exclusive tote:

This is not the actual tote, it's actually a liquid eyeliner (great for crafting if you have more makeup than art supplies!)-and-paper rending of what the tote will look like once it's made

Goals:

To make STRIPTASTIC! a real, physical thing I need $20,000. This covers printing, shipping, and enough time off from the pole to make it happen. 

I'd like to add gilded pages and customized book-ends, so if I reach $30,000, I'll be adding that to make STRIPTASTIC! even more... striptastic.

It will be so incredible if I reach $35,000, at which point I'll be able to rent a shared studio to put all of this together. (Every illustration you've ever seen has been drawn from a coffee shop or my bed in our 200 sq. ft. apartment. Danielle will be eternally grateful if I am able to take my eraser-shavings elsewhere).

Risks and challenges

STRIPTASTIC! will be challenging as this is my first book of illustrations. I'm learning new software, so it's going to take a bit of extra time to get things looking right and ready. I've always just photographed my work, but now it's time to take it to the next level using programs like InDesign and Illustrator. Bring on the YouTube tutorials, I'm ready to learn!
