Deviants

First of all, sorry for this huge delay. Between the time we shipped every order and the time of donation, we had to take care of many things related to the artbook and things in our personal lives. We hope you understand.

So without further ado, we have donated the money raised from this project.
We were able to donate an amount of $9,669 to St. Jude's Hospital. Here are the screenshot of the donation, and the details of our expenses.

With this journal, we conclude this project. Again, we would like to apologize for those of you who got affected by the shipping problem. Like we said on the front page, this book will NOT be printed again. To those of you who missed the chance to support us in this project and asked if we are going to do another one in the future, we don't have the plan now, but anything can happen. If we ever do decide to do another, please do support us again!

We will not be answering any more questions related to this project. We will leave this group open for anyone who would like to view all the amazing artworks by the contributing artists.

For the last time, we would like to thank everyone for their support by either purchasing the book, contributing art works to the book, or simply wishing us good luck, because without you all, we couldn't have done it.

THANK YOU!




PS. We'd like to explain one thing - People who have worked with mass printing places will understand this. The printing of 500 books versus 600 books had perhaps a $40 USD difference in price. This is because the cost of paper is negligent compared to the cost of setting up a HQ art book printer. Thus, we were able to ensure free copies to all participating artists WITHOUT compromising the amount of money we could donate. To be honest, most of the cost lay in the shipping, which we underestimated.

Edit: Consolidated & relabeled some of the costs for clarification.

Our Purpose


Theme: Life & the Animal Kingdom



All copies are SOLD OUT, thanks everyone!


We are not planning to print anymore, sorry to those who are still interested in purchasing a copy!


Artists: You can go ahead and post your artwork and submit it to the group gallery under "full artworks" folder if you wish :)


________________________________________________

Our purpose is to make a charity art book and donate 100% of the profits to the charity, St. Jude's Children Research Hospital.

"St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay." This year is their 50th anniversary. (Read more...)

We want to make an art book that will never fail to bring a smile to your face.

This art book is a celebration of life, all the aspects, and pledged to a charity hospital that has been providing fifty years of research and service to helping sick children and their families.

ABOUT THE BOOK


The Kingdom Carousel Art Book is an independent project. It is A4 sized and contains over 120 full-color pages featuring over 120 incredible pieces of art from artists all over dA. While the book is not hardcover, it will come inside a gold-filigreed box, which will be added protection for when it ships. Photos here: kingdom-carousel.deviantart.co…

ABOUT THIS GROUP


Feel free to watch the group for updates, such as free giveaways and preview images of the book, and consider donating money to this wonderful charity by buying a copy.

I would join, but it would not let me. :(. I wish I could join. I am a St. Jude outpatient. They helped me be alive today.

Even if you guys aren't planning to reprint (which would probably result in a very successful second donation if you decided to!), I was wondering if the staff of this group was planning on conducting another art-book in the future? ouo/ :heart:
