Our Kickstarter campaign is seeking funding to bring 101 Illustrated Jokes For Kids By Kids Vol. 1 to life as an electronic book in the Kindle store and as printed books available for purchase.
The jokes and artwork already exist, having originally appeared as part of youth-oriented features created for newspapers in the 1990s. They were the ‘user -gen content’ of their day – kids would write the jokes down and mail them to the artist, who would illustrate and colorize them for the newspaper.
Kids love reading, memorizing and reciting these jokes, and the younger children enjoy them through the comic illustrations. The jokes are timeless and have been sitting in one of the founder’s garages for years, waiting to for a new generation of kids to discover them. This campaign will enable that to happen.
Our co-founders have the expertise to convert the artwork to a digital form and prepare them for digital publishing and printing. But we seek funding for the expenses involved in the initial setup and the first round of printing. Joining this Kickstarter campaign will make you eligible for various rewards, too.
