Those of you who follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter have already heard that I am diving into my next book project with both feet! It’s a children’s book that will be in both English and Spanish and will be offered free to any child who completes a learning program that accompanies it. That link in the upper right hand sidebar here shows you where we’re at in our campaign and if you click it you can see a whole lot more info and make a pledge!
All the details are here on the page I’ve made for it. I’ve also created an active Facebook Page just for the project here. Checking in with either of these will keep you on top of the progress as both the book itself and the learning program work through development. I post sketches and finished art from illustrations – and some of these contain cameo appearance from the pets of people who have pledged support for the project!
Be a Part of it!
Yep, I’m currently running an IndieGoGo fundraiser campaign here. As of this writing we’ve reached 24% of our goal of $5000. Basically $5000 will produce about 2000 books that will then impact directly the lives and the animals within those lives of two thousand children. Extending the math, if each child interacts with a rough estimate of 20 animals in their life, the info in this project could positively influence that interaction and better the lives of at least 40,000 animals!
But this is is just the first phase! As I am lucky enough to have gotten a local school principle on board, a professional with far reaching connections, this program could grow! So the seed money we raise could very easily roll over into something much, much bigger.
So I’m excited, grateful and thoroughly motivated to make this one of the highlights of my professional career.
Here are some finished illustrations so you can see where this thing is headed.
