I recently announced that I was approved for a Kickstarter project for my debut solo exhibition in New York.
Here are some updates in regards to launching the Kickstarter. I am adding images that I will use in the
project launch. Please stay tuned for the actual launch and details! Thank you!
Here are some highlights of rewards for funding this Kickstarter project…
Corn Seed Packets
As part of the Overflow site specific installation, there will be empty seed packets printed on the front with
image of the work and the back will have information about the work the exhibition and sponsor. Below is
concept images of the front and back of seed packet. I foresee the empty seed packets being mailed out as
postcards announcing the exhibition, and inviting the viewer to come see the show and take a few seeds.
This will also be a reward for pledging on Kickstarter.
These seed packets will also be at the gallery and available to use to pick up a few seeds from the exhibition.
Bear Heart T-Shirt
I have had requests to make T-Shirts of my work in the past, but never had the right opportunity. My brother
and I used to own a clothing company, and screened many shirts in my day! The Winged Wonder was one
of my designs. I should dig one up sometime and show you. hmmm
I surveyed a few people and they seem to think that a simplified version of the actual Bear Heart
concept image was preferred to the simple line drawing above. Here is what it will probably look
Here is what the Bear Heart will look like on a t-shirt. Most likely soft ringspun, per Lisa Lala’s request.
They will come in a variety of colors. It is a fun grab bag.
I have been waiting for a while to print a catalog of my work, and now it is time!
This catalog will most likely be a softcover, saddle stitched, unless I go beyond funding a way!
Below is my concept image.
Below are a couple of pencil drawings of the Appropriate Attire works. I am thinking about including a print
of these for one of the rewards.
Change Forward Conceptual Rendering
There are a number of renderings I am going to offer as various sizes and levels of prints. Here is one…
Surprise Quick Sketch
One of the rewards I am going to offer is a quick sketch of whatever is
on my mind at the moment (I know scary thought), but hopefully interesting.
It might be a cartoon, or naturalistic sketch, stylized, etc. Surprise!
Arrow Antler T-Shirt or Sketch
Below is another ink drawing that I am considering offering as a T-Shirt
or sketch reward. What do you think? It would probably be printed on a random colored shirt.
Another option for cards is the “Bear Heart” image:
Of course my family is putting up with me, with all of the work I am putting into this project
I am so thankful for them! Here is a photo from Fall 2011.
Here is another one of us on a crazy windy day (March 2012) in a corn field. It is amazing to
see how fast Claire is growing up!
