I am super excited to announce a new personal project I am working on – an illustrated graphic novel of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott!
I have put up a dedicated page at danidraws.com/little-women with all the details, art, and links you need to know. This is a project that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. My plan is to work on it for the remainder of the year, post my progress, print a book, and eventually find a publisher.
Here’s where YOU come in:
As part of this project, I am doing a little promotional/publishing experiment. If you are a fan of Little Women, graphic novels, and classic stories, and would love to see this project come to fruition, I would appreciate it if you would leave a short comment over on the LW page. My goal is to get as many comments as possible on that page, so please leave short note if you can.
Kickstarter Project Coming Soon!
I will be launching a campaign on Kickstarter next week. This is going to help pay for the printing of a special self-published portion of this project, which I will provide more details about when it launches. Please keep an eye out for it until then.
I’m going to be sharing news and process for the entire project as I move forward. I’ve set up a dedicated blog at danidraws.com/little-women/updates if you’d like to follow along.
On Friday August 3 at 10 AM ET, I am going to hold a live Ustream broadcast to celebrate the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, and draw some Little Women art. I am going to try to do regular broadcasts throughout the campaign where I will work on the project and maybe giveaway some stuff. :)
If you are unfamiliar with my Ustream broadcasts, it is a live show where I chat and draw in real time, and viewers can interact, chat, and ask questions.
Go to danidraws.com/danidrawslive to watch the show and view the schedule.
Thanks so much for all your support! I can’t wait to get started!
