Kickstarter Time!!!

Remember how I said I am illustrating a children's book? Well, here's the scoop:

Ginny the Giraffe Does Gymnastics (link goes to the Facebook page) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help cover publishing and supply costs! Donations as small as $5 have fun incentives, and as long as we meet our minimum fundraising goal, we can get this show on the road! The more we have coming in, the sooner we can get published, because like most artists these days, we're doing this in our spare time since we like to, y'know, eat and have roofs over our heads.

Even if you can't donate much, every little bit adds up, so please don't be shy! We have to make our minimum fundraising goal to receive any funds at all, and there are only 60 days left to meet our goal.

Please share this link if you can--even if you can't afford to donate, simply getting the word out covers a lot of ground.

Project Teaser: Ginny the Giraffe!

I can't share too much yet, but I'm working on illustrating a friend's book for children, and here are a couple of teaser images for the main character (and my first two concept drawings). Don't worry--I'll be sharing more information, including how to buy the book, soon, but for now, just a little taste:
