Check out these cute Valentine’s Day cards created by Greg Hardin for KU Endowment at the University of Kansas.
Greg Hardin utilized Kickstarter to fund and publish his first self-initiated children’s book titled, When I Grow Up, I Want to be Jayhawk.
The book is officially licensed by The University of Kansas and is about an enthusiastic young Jay who has big dreams of becoming a Kansas Jayhawk. It’s a lighthearted rhyming celebration of the history and traditions of The University of Kansas, it offers an exciting preview of college life, and it also celebrates the value of higher education.
Greg Hardin just wrapped up a colossal project for renowned financial guru Dave Ramsey.
Greg was commissioned to create six books in six months for a new “Junior” book set, teaching children how to save money. Greg worked alongside John Trent and Kenny Yamada for the flats and rendering. He says it took down to the very last day to complete the full project.
