Help Support Ishtar's Children's book into VR - Graduating Degree Project

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to check out my funding page.
I am starting this GoFundMe page to help raise money for my Final Graduating Degree Project at Konstfack, where I've been studying Graphic Design & Illustration for the past three years. This is my dream project and a new path of work that hasn't really been explored before. I'm making a children's book and remaking it into an VR experience in just 12 weeks, Teaching my self how to do it  while I go along. One of the major challenge is the production costs of the actual book as well as material costs. But my determination to present this work in the middle of May at our Final Spring Degree Show in Stockholm is certain. 

I'm making this children's book together with my friend Dr. Heather Briscoe, whom I met in San Francisco during my exchange studies at CCA last fall. I knew then what I wanted to do for my final project and together with Heather's beautiful story I'm now illustrating and remaking it into an VR (Virtual Reality) experience. 

I want to give a new way of exploring picture books as well as offer the paper-cut analog style into the VR world instead of the usually very animated virtual reality environment,  all this to make the picture book come to life and enhance the experience of the story through more dimensions for everyone to explore. 

My goal is to raise $1000 to cover production costs like printing the book and binding it as well as artistic materials like colours and paper during this time. 
To be able to share my cause in this platform is such a blessing which lets me dedicate my time and energy fully into making this project come to fruition. Any help will be great-fully received! And I am so exited to share with you both my process and the final result! 
And of course you're all welcome to our Final Degree Show on
May 16th-26th 2019 at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden!
