“Thank You Misha” Appreciation Book

With the thought of the @supernaturalartbook​ and @thedestielartbook​ I decided to do something I’ve been toying with the idea of for a long time.

 will be a fan-made book consisting of user-submitted stories of how Misha Collins has touched the lives of the submitters and made a lasting impression on them.

This is an art project which I will keep going for as long as possible to collect as MANY inspirational stories from people about Misha Collins and how he has changed their lives and made the world a better place for them

Misha Collins is truly an angel who has done so much for all of us and it’s about time that we give a little back. At this point in time, this will be a one off printed book on my dime - I plan on inserting all the stories in a full color book (with some submitted Misha Collins artwork). The book will be a hardcover coffee table style book with a glossy dust jacket, gold leaf trim & embossed leather cover under the dust jacket. It will include a fairly long introduction chapter or two written by yours truly. The user submitted stories will immediately follow the introduction chapter. I will try to include up to two stories per page and am looking for AS MANY user submitted stories preferably of 400-1000 words each (but more or less is fine). The reason for the word limitation is that I need to be able to more or less fit two stories on some of the pages due to my page limit. Additionally, I will include a lot of pages with tweets from people telling me why they love Misha Collins. Initially, I will only be printing one copy of the book out of my pocket to hand deliver to Misha during a con some time during 2018, depending on how long the creation of this takes. Afterwards, I might be setting up an indiegogo campaign to sell copies of the book for people interested in owning a copy of their own. I will do this depending on how many people are interested. Any proceeds beyond printing costs will go to random acts.

This is just something I want to do for Misha with help from all of you beautiful people and any money made off of sales will go to RandomActs because it’s an organization I am VERY passionate about. Now that we got that out of the way, if you’re interested in contributing your story, please submit it through the submit page and be sure to adhere to the following guidelines.

  • Please check your spelling and grammar - I will go over it myself but it would be helpful if it already arrives checked and ready.
  • Please do not use any profanity or offensive language unless absolutely necessary. This is for Misha and the Collins family and I hope we can keep it clean and beautiful for him and his family to enjoy.
  • Please try to keep your story under over 300 but under 1000 words - THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT but more of a loose guideline so I can fit everything together well.
  • If you would like to submit artwork of Misha Collins to the book - I simply ask for your permission to print it in the book I give to him- I also ask that it be high quality and at least 300 dpi so it prints correctly & crisply on a large coffee table book. Watermark on the image is welcome as well as your name and a link back - will include that in the book for any artists that contribute their work.
  • I plan on including a name & location below each story submitted so please include your name & city/state with any submission. If you would like to include a link to your social media, I will happily include one link or email address as well with each submission. If no info is submitted, your submission will appear as -Anonymous
  • Additionally, I plan on having a credits section on the back of the book - if you submit a story or artwork, the name & location (and link) will be included in the credits section of the book.
  • Lastly, I will happily include a full page for anyone that runs a charity organization or any kind of group that was founded with Misha Collins in mind for charity work, support groups etc. The page will be a full page about the charity in question with description, information, contact & photos if you want to include them. I want to do this to prove to him that he doesn’t just HELP thousands, he inspires them to do good too. Please contact me through the ask box for more information regarding this.

The book printing will be done in 4 stages/

STAGE 1: Story Collection - Story collection will consist of collecting all the user submitted stories and artwork that will be included in the book The closeout date for when user submitted content will close is currently December 21st, 2017. Dates are subject to change.

STAGE 2: Format & Editing - This is the phase where I will format the book and edit all the content to make sure it fits well together and looks good. Additionally, I will be spellchecking all of the content and arranging all the user submitted artwork & charity pages to make sure everything looks clean and streamlined. Date TBD

STAGE 3: 1st Copy Printing - This is when I will be printing the first INDIVIDUAL copy of the book to deliver to Misha. This will be a very heavy coffee table book bound in leather, with a glossy dust jacket and gold leaf trim on the pages. The book will be in full color. I currently have an estimate for about $110 for one copy of the book - the price is pretty steep because I will be buying it on its own and not in bulk. I will be paying this out of pocket. Date TBD

STAGE 4: Mass Distribution(?) - This all depends on the feedback I get from people who submit and ask questions. More info to come. This isn’t even a set thing, it just depends on feedback I get since a few people have inquired if they’d be able to buy a copy. All proceeds after printing would go to Random Acts. Date TBD

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

All submissions will be posted to this blog publicly unless requested otherwise-this will be for keeping track of submissions. Submissions may or may not be printed in the order they were submitted in, I haven’t decided that yet but will do a poll during stage 2 of this project.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing all of your stories of how this man has helped you.

WE LOVE YOU MISHA!

Ps if everyone could signal boost and reblog to get exposure out that would be extremely helpful! I need as many submissions as possible!

Ladies and gentleman, here it is. Fully finished. 30,000 beads. 50 hours & a whole lot of patience! Please for the love of god, tweet this picture like there is no tomorrow. Let’s get @mishacollins on twitter to see this! Use the hash tag #LifeSizeCas Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me and encouraged me through this project.

Hey remember that time I went to Comic Con and got Misha Collins to take a picture with cavycas and I?

Yeah that was pretty great.

The “Thank You, Misha” Book.

I decided to do something I’ve been toying with the idea of for a long time.

will be a fan-made book consisting of user-submitted stories of how Misha Collins has touched the lives of the submitters and made a lasting impression on them.

Misha Collins is truly an angel who has done so much for all of us and it’s about time that we give a little back. At this point in time, this will be a one off printed book on my dime - I plan on inserting all the stories in a 200-300 full color book (with some submitted Misha Collins artwork). The book will be a hardcover coffee table style book with a glossy dust jacket, gold leaf trim & embossed leather cover under the dust jacket. It will include a fairly long introduction chapter or two written by yours truly. The user submitted stories will immediately follow the introduction chapter. I will try to include up to two stories per page and am looking for 400-600 user submitted stories preferably of 400-1000 words each (but more or less is fine). The reason for the word limitation is that I need to be able to more or less fit two stories on some of the pages due to my page limit. Initially, I will only be printing one copy of the book out of my pocket to hand deliver to Misha during VegasCon 2018 or PhxCon 2018 depending on how long the creation of this takes. Afterwards, I will be setting up an indiegogo campaign to sell copies of the book for people interested in owning a copy of their own. There will be two options available (as of now) the version with the original stats (leather bound, dustjacket, gold trim etc), and a plain hardcover version.

This is just something I want to do for Misha with help from all of you beautiful people and any money made off of sales will go to RandomActs because it’s an organization I am VERY passionate about.

This all depends on the feedback I get from people who submit and ask questions. More info to come. Date TBD

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DONT BELIEVE I AM THE ORIGINAL ARTIST These are all my project pictures of my #LifeSizeCas and I am even in the last one. (I’m in more, but I look terrible.) This is a LIFE SIZE CASTIEL out of perler beads. It took 30,000 beads. It took 50 hours it cost $180 just in supplies It stands at 6’1” tall. Yes, this is 2” too tall, but that’s to compensate for the angle of the feet. More than ANYTHING I want Misha Collins to see this. So, please use the picture with my tag on it and tweet it to Misha on twitter and use the hash tag #LifeSizeCas I usually would not request so much help, but I can not afford to meet Misha, so this is as close as I will get. All help will be greatly appreciated. I also plan on picking a few lucky winners from my followers to send out a few custom bead projects!(not lifesize, too hard to mail)

You may judge us for who we like,

Hate us for what we think,

Because theres always that someone,Who makes our troubles, worries, depression, vanish, just with a smile.People may think of us unnecessary, obsessed, alone, desperate,

But sometimes its the little bit of good to cheer up the bad day, 

We cling to fantasies for a bit of freedom from reality,Even though our hero’s don’t know we exist,

Some strain every last second to make this world a better place,

And thats what keeps me going<3
