Here's the cover, starring our Queensland Heeler
I looked closely at the original cover for Arfabet so the two would look good together
I'll let you peek at a few inner pages - but first a reminder of the original Edward Lear alphabet that inspired the project:
Here's my interpretation:
There might be some slight design details that still need some TLC before I go to print, but I'm about halfway done with the interior pages at this point, but will spend the next three days nailing those down, writing the glossary, etc.
Phew! It's been a big month putting this together and I've loved being able to share it with you. I'll post a few more updates here in next few months to show you some more inside pages, and my work on the animation, creating the backer rewards, and preparing for the exhibition and book launch at Velvet da Vinci Gallery this October! Of course, if you're a backer, you'll get this sent directly to your email.
If you miss out on the Arfabet Kickstarter campaign, I suggest you sign up for my email list so you'll know when the book is available for sale. Don't forget: the prices I set for the Kickstarter rewards are only available to those who signed on during this campaign. (I'm always up for creating custom dog figures though--click here for details.)
ONE FINAL BIG THANK YOU TO MY KICKSTARTER BACKERS!!! I REALLY COULDN'T DO THIS BOOK WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT IN HELPING ME COVER PRINTING AND PRODUCTION COSTS.
