About

I'm Tim Buck, creator of the Local Herd cartoon strip published weekly in the Estes Park News. I've really enjoyed drawing the cartoon strip for the last 17 years and now I want to publish a coloring book and I need your help!

  

 

 

The 64 page coloring book will be filled with lots of pages to color, many jokes and other fun features. I think this will be a fun and unique gift for kids and adults who enjoy wildlife and humor, especially in the Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park area.


If I can reach my goal of $5000 then I can print enough copies to get the price break I need to be able to sell them at an affordable price. Not only can you purchase the coloring book at a special price, but you can also support the project at higher amounts where you will receive unique and limited edition rewards! These special reward items include a kids t-shirt, my Local Herd book of cartoons, greeting cards and limited edition prints. You can support my project for as little as $4. I offer a downloadable version of the coloring book that will allow you to print and color as many pages as you like. This will also be included in all the reward levels.

I just recently sold my t-shirt printing business and I'm hoping to make the Local Herd my next job but I need your help. If this project is successful then it will help me get closer to my ultimate goal of animating the Local Herd. If you can support my project in any way it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Local Herd Book - Published in 2008, this book contains over 200 black and white cartoons.

Christmas Greeting Card - A set of 5 Christmas Cards with envelopes size A9. Cards are 5.5" x 8.5" and blank on the inside.

Baseball T-shirt - Sizes available from 2T (toddler) to 2X adult. Toddler shirts are Rabbit Skins brand and the adult and youth sizes are LA T-shirts. 60/40 combed ringspun cotton/polyester.

 Hand painted Limited Edition Print - These 8" x 10" prints are silk screened then hand-colored by the artist. Matted, signed and numbered.

 

For the Retailer - This reward level is perfect for retailers. You will receive 20 copies of the coloring book, priced below wholesale pricing, along with a specially designed table top display. This is only available for pickup in the Estes Park area.

Founding Supporter - Would you like your name or business listed on the back cover as a Founding Supporter? If this campaign is successful I plan on printing 1000 copies of the coloring book. Once they are printed I will have them available on my website and to retail locations in Estes Park. Hopefully I will have to print more in the future and your support will be printed in all future print runs.

 

Risks and challenges

The coloring book is almost done and I plan to have it completed by the end of this campaign so that I can send it to the printer as soon as possible. I want to have these delivered to you in plenty of time for the Christmas season.
