Morran illustration book?



Adolfo Serra gave me the idea to make a book full of Morran pictures made of people around the world. Lynn Louise Larson gave me the idea that the profit could go to a good cause (preferrable something that has to do with dogs).

So now I'm thinking that it might be a book, if there are enough people that are interested, made through a print on demand place on the web, like Blurb (or any other ideas?). We will just add a small amount on the printing cost to give to a good cause, no one else (except Blurb of course) will get any money - not even Morran ;-)

It's a way to promote your work and to donate at the same time.

I was also thinking that who ever feel like it can send their contribution, I can make a webpage to post every picture and links to your websites (or just an e-mail if you don't have any), but that there will be a selection made by a jury for the book.

What do you think? Any ideas or suggestions?

Hi Camilla!
I think that's a pretty good idea! (Thanks for your email!) I definetly would contribute, if I was chosen. Blurb seems good.
Just read an article today of chimpanzees, who where held 15 years long as test animals and now could find a place in austria in a natural build parc for their retirement (and not being killed). At least, they find peace now. I am sure there are many things out for poor dogs, too. I think about...
So, You need my www? anjadenz.net
Many kind regards, Anja

fan vad bra och vad kul!
jag ska göra mitt bästa, men eftersom jag känner originalet så vet jag att det inte blir lätt. kanske ett porträtt av henne och mig när hon fixar min frisyr ;)

HowlWithMe said...

This is such a great idea. I'd love to own a book like that (and I'd love to contribute if I can create an image that's worthy of the divine Miss Morran!

Anonymous said...

This is a wonderful idea especially because so many of us love Morran. I would hope that you would also put in lots of your own photos, drawings, art of Morran. I loved the little book you added with your Suitcase Series edition from Uppercase.

Ulicam said...

Jag tycker det låter som en väldigt rolig idé. Det ger en chans för dina följare att också bidra, då det är många bra konstnärer som tittar förbi varje dag.
Jag hade själv älskat att få bidra med något (förutom lasergravyren som du redan har fått:).

The Confetti Monster said...

I would be honored to contribute/apply, even if I don't make the final cut! I know what it's like to absolutely adore pups of your own and I feel like I know Morran through your photography.

Ana Gonzalez said...

I like the idea that Morran image transfer its rights to help other dogs, sounds like fun and generous on his part.

The Blurb is very good. I published my book with them and the colors are very vivid, when I received my book, I like my work in the book, in reality, ha, ha, ha.

My picture I sent you and, if the jury, which governs Morran, decided to include my work in the book will be happy to help a good cause.

Julie said...

Reda said...

Great idea! The book is going to turn out wonderful-so many different portraits of Morran!
And raising money for a good cause is always a good idea.
When do we start? :-)

Cally said...

Great idea. I've certainly been inspired to doodle Morran in the past and clearly others have too. I've also used Blurb to remember the cat (he had so many names from previous owners that he only responded to cat and puss by the time we got him). I put everything I had of him in it, which was a lot, and almost none of it good, but it means so much to have it because every blurry shot reminds me of those moments with him.

To have something that has come from people around the world is such a lovely way to mark the impression that Morran has had on all of us. And so great for us to be able to give back what you have shared with us. Even better that that would be able to help other dogs or charity.

I think it's a wonderful idea and would love to participate.

Natascha Rosenberg said...

It's a great idea!!
I'm in!
A love bark from Berlin!

cheryl said...

Morran!? Oh yes! That would be lovely! Would love the book and maybe even the chance to be part of it. Only something good can come of this...

Heiko said...

What a nice idea! You can count me in!

matilda said...

I will buy the book...so whatever you decide it's good for me.

Marisa and Creative Thursday said...

Hello Camilla! Such a long time follower of your blog and your work and after all this time I'm finally commenting. I don't know why it has taken me so long?! I admire all that you do and sweet Morran - love her too. I think this is a wonderful idea and I'd love to submit an illustration for the book.

Marisa and Creative Thursday said...

Oh and I also meant to add that I self published my children's book with blurb.com a few years ago and have been really pleased with the ease of putting the book together and the quality of the construction and the printing. It would also work well if you published through them, since you can post the book to their shop and they can handle all the fulfillment + shipping directly.

csr said...

hi . i like the idea and i would participate as well.
have a lovely october!

Anonymous said...

Hi Camilla
I am a true dog lover and have follwed you and Morran on the blogs for some time now. I like the idea too and would very much like to participate if I am chosen:-)

Is there a deadline for the illustrations?

Thank you very much

Greetings from Denmark

Bibbi said...

vov, vilken bra idé, så klokt! Det finns säkert massor med viktiga hundställen att stödja; jag vet att Lakha Lama, en tibetansk lärare som bor i Danmark står bakom ett projekt med danska veterinärer som behandlar sjuka gatuhundar i Indien. Här står lite: http://www.tibetcharity.se, kolla under projekt - veterinärverksamhet.
Och Blå Stället var stängt idag...
