Thank you to everyone who checked out my book proofs, pre-ordered books and chatted with me last weekend at the Ukrainian Cultural Festival at Soyuzivka!
Hooray! My Kickstarter Campaign was successfully funded! I am grateful for all the pledges of support and am super excited for this book to become a reality. "My Ukrainian American Story" will be published!
Here’s a look-see how one of my pages from “My Ukrainian American Story” children's picture book evolved. It started out rectangular before I switched it to square. Typically, I start with a sketch, draw outlines and then add color, shading and details. Revising each step of the way until I am happy with it.
"My Ukrainian American Story" Kickstarter Campaign has been included on the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Kickstarter page. My first degree, a Bachelor's of Fine Arts (BFA) is in Illustration from RISD. Take a look, there's some neat projects there from fellow alumni, students and faculty.
Wow, I'm excited to report that my Kickstarter Campaign hit the funding goal!
Thank you for pledging and for sharing the campaign. It's been great to hear from family, friends, acquaintances and to meet people through Kickstarter (and it's only day 2)! I look forward to seeing how the next 21 days will unfold. Thanks again!
