PORTRAITS - my new Kickstarter project

After the election last fall, I felt the need to respond, and do so through art. I told friends and fans online that I would draw commissions for them of “inspirational progressives” and endangered animals of North America. I ended up drawing 20 portraits, and donated the money to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the National Resources Defense Council(NRDC).

Now I’m putting the drawings together into one art book. It contains 20 images of inspirational progressive people from history and today, as well as endangered animals of North America. The book will be 44 pages, which includes full pages of the drawings and short biographies on each subject. It’s 7x10, paperback, black and white interiors, printed on nice semi gloss stock paper, card stock cover, and perfect bound. All books will be signed, a limited number will include a small portrait sketch. 

Funds raised through the Kickstarter will also go toward printing extra copies of the book, that I will take with me to conventions and sell alongside my other works. Proceeds from those books will go toward the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the NRDC.

The images are also being printed as postcards, suitable for framing, mailing to your member of Congress, or mailing to a friend.

I’m really excited about this project. I hope you take a look and tell your friends!
