Hats Off! launch

Once upon a time, 10 years ago my then girlfriend, now wife, and I said we would someday collaborate on a book together.  She writes awesome poems, and I make pictures.  Then life went on, and you know how things go, yadda yadda....

10 years later the kernel of an idea grew, and we decided to finally make the book a reality, before all the kids our friends are having become adults!  So she wrote a great story, I'm working on the illustrations, and this summer we should have a great picture book about animals in hats (two spreads from the book above).  But we need help to make this happen.  That's where you come in, beautiful people who like to support cool projects and see neat things come into the world!  Please visit our Kickstarter campaign here, and help us make this book happen!  There are some neat rewards for giving, and for as little as $15 you can get your own signed copy when it comes out!

We aim to bring a little joy, a cup full of imagination, and a pinch of fun into the lives of children with this book. And possibly in the future, to bring loads of joy to little hearts with more books!  But for now, we are super excited about this book, and can't wait to share it with you!  Don't hesitate to contact me with questions about the the book, the way Kickstarter works, or anything.  Thanks for taking the time to check it out, and let's bring some wonder into kids lives together!
