As a parent of two little doodlers and a daily drawer myself, I can't help but fall in love with this Kickstarter project by The Cardboard Guys. They've taken everything great about fostering creativity in a kid and magically created a drawing desk and chair made of cardboard, that's fun to build, functional to use, and best of all designed to be doodled all over. The top of the desk even comes with cubbies to store all your art supplies and built to close away when not in use.
No joke, I want one for myself. They've only got 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal. Support them (before it's too late) and little ones will rejoice everywhere.
Long-time friend of DA, Mr. Jess Smart Smiley is making a children's book he's quite passionate about. It's not often that I post about Kickstarter type projects, but I couldn't help falling in love with his cute monsters and playful scenes. The book is titled, Rumpus on the Run, and is Kickstarter's first "look-n-find" book.
Lucky for us, Jess passed along some of his sketches from over the years. Take a look below and make sure to check out his Kickstarter page, the rewards especially, he's even offering to draw some of you right into the book ;)
We've just got word that our lovely friend Sara Barnes (of Brown Paper Bag) and cohort Lisa Perrin teamed up on a new venture, named Píccolo, a collaborative illustration project dedicated to the small things.
To get it off the ground, they've launched a Kickstarter campaign that could use your support to reach its goal, and in return, you get one print (or all four) commissioned for their first project, by the illustrated talents of Yelena Bryksenkova, Michael C. Hsiung, Philipp Dornbierer and Paige Vickers.
In fact, I'll let them tell you all about it, watch the cute, stop-motion video below and then click on over to Kickstarter to help make this project a reality.
