Greetings to all, my name is Jason Zucker and I'm the writer and illustrator of the "Little Fish Ismay."
Over the years I've collected a wide range of stories and characters that I promised myself, one day, that that I would pull them from my mind and transition them into the print medium. Well, finally, that day has come. This is the first of many stories that I am presenting as a children's book titled "Little Fish Ismay."
It's the story of a little fish named Ismay who resides at the City Aquarium in a large tank mostly filled with popular fish, much larger than him. Being one of the smallest, Ismay tries several ways to gain attention from the visitors of the aquarium. In his attempts, he learns a valuable lesson of being proud of who you are and that popularity isn't everything.
Over the next several months I will be involved heavily in this hand drawn, hand painted story and with the help of your pledges towards my first book, I can fund the materials and the printing costs to bring this story to life. I'm excited to include rewards from sketches of the characters to posters to even having you appear in the book!
I sincerely appreciate you supporting me on this journey to bring Ismay to life on the page! I'll be giving updates of the book periodically on my page, The West Wing Studio on Facebook. Please check it out and like my page!
Peace and love to you all!
For the rewards that include a signed copy of the book, please let me know if you would like it signed to a particular person(s). Thanks!!!
Risks and challenges
I expect I'll be producing roughly 30 or more pages for the story Little Fish Ismay. All will be hand drawn and painted with some digital touches along the way. I currently hold a full time job and do freelance from time to time, but my main focus over the next couple of months will be the book.
The funds will be used for the materials I'll be using for the illustrations for both the book and the rewards. The main cost will be the printing of the book itself which will be hardcover. I want the final product to meet my expectations, but if possible printing problems occur, it will give me enough time to get it done correctly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
