Hi! I'm Tanya Bond - the artist behind Tanya's Charming Creatures. Three years ago I discovered drawing with pen and ink and have since created over 80 full colour ink illustrations, big eyed girls and their adorable companions - or inklings as I call them.
I knew that at some point these illustrations will make a great colouring book so I kept almost all the black and white images of my illustrations on file for that big day when I can turn them into a book and I need your help to make it happen.
About the book
"Inklings" colouring book is going to have 24 black line illustrations and a full colour cover showing examples of inklings in colour. The book will be a big but easily manageable A4 size (a little under 9x12 inches) and will have 170gsm pages that will be stapled together with a full colour cover into one beautiful colouring book.
I believe that both adults and children will enjoy spending cold winter days colouring the inklings. I intend to have these books printed in early November to have them ready for posting before holidays and you can get multiple books if you wish to use them as holiday gifts.
#1 Basic reward includes one copy of "INKLINGS" colouring book
#2 Reward level includes one copy of "INKLINGS" colouring book and a 5x7 print of your choice of an illustration from the book in colour. There are 17 different images available as a print reward (please note that the book will have 24 illustrations but not all of them are available as a print). When the campaign is over I will be sending out a survey in which you will let me know which print you wanted to get

What payment methods are accepted:
Kickstarter accepts most credit cards and some debit cards, However, as we are getting closer to the funding goal of €2600 a small note to people who would love to take part in the campaign but DO NOT HAVE CREDIT CARDS. Once the official campaign reaches the goal I will be able to accept paypal, bank transfer (if you are in Europe), and cash in the post (Ireland only). You can claim any reward level you wish just like you would have done using the kickstarter site.
How to add rewards to your current pledge:
1) on this page, under the main info in top right corner find "you are a backer" section and press "manage"
2) manually increase the pledge amount by the value of the add-on reward (you don't need to change your current reward level) This way you can add extra rewards from different pledge levels, or double the reward from your current pledge.
Thank you so much for your help in turning this colouring book idea into reality!
Risks and challenges
I will do everything within my power to deliver your pledges to you in December, however there is always a very small risk that something might not go as planned and it might delay this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
