This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Welcome to ABC Disgusting, a children’s alphabet book about disgusting things written by Greg Pak with art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, and letters by Simon Bowland, the art team behind The Princess Who Saved Herself and Code Monkey Save World. ABC Disgusting tells the story of a boy trying to shock his older sister with an alphabetical series of disgusting things. But in the end, she hits him with what might be the biggest gross-out of all. WARNING: VERY DISGUSTING. (And maybe a little heartwarming.) INCLUDES FLATULENCE, LAMPREYS, MAYONNAISE MILK SHAKES, NOSE HAIR, ZOMBIES AND ZORILLAS.
The book’s special brand of gross-out humor with heart is perfect for any kid or parent who’s ever laughed at a fart — and particularly great for reluctant readers who might need a bit more incentive to pick up a book. The 36 page book will be released digitally and printed as a beautiful hardcover, approximately 7″ x 10.5″. Kickstarter backers can also pick rewards that include a custom ABC Disgusting whoopie cushion or copies of the art team’s previous books, The Princess Who Saved Herself and Code Monkey Save World.
As of July 7th, this project has raised around $15,000 of their $24,000 goal. This project only has 22 days left to raise the $24,000 or it will not be funded! For a pledge of $10, you will get a digital PDF of the book. For a pledge of $20, you will get one hardcover copy of the book.
