Kickstarter Update #7: Long Overdue Update – 40% Goal Hit and Surpassed!

I have a little explaining to do.

I have been buried trying to get my printing, t-shirts and details (finding whole corn in Brooklyn is a very difficult task let me assure you) together for this exhibition. To top it off, I was in bed most of the day feeling miserable. My wife said something about me working on this project too much. 🙂 I am little bit behind on updating. I have been blown away with the pledges! Thank you so much for your support! We hit the next… (read more here…)

I know that many people wait till the last minute to pledge. Ok people(read more here…)

I want to point out a few rewards that haven’t been taken advantage of yet.
This first one below would really help get us going to meet this pledge goal.
$400 – SIGNED AND NUMBERED 1/1 SPALTED MAPLE SCULPTURE AND NAME AND WORK IN EXHIBITION CATALOG AND INCLUDES AN EXHIBITION CATALOG – I will sculpt a good sized chunk of this spalted maple into a simple form w/ exotic wood base & steel support. The sculpture can be removed from base mount. Each is original! One of the SCULPTURES in the Exhibition Catalog, YOUR NAME IN CATALOG & on WEBSITE. Also of course, I will include the EXHIBITION CATALOG, send a BEAUTIFUL EXHIBITION GREETING CARD with MY SINCERE THANKS, POSTCARD & SEED PACKET. This is a LIMITED REWARD, don’t let it get away! See example below.

If the above is a little bit more than you are able to handle, how about this one:
$300- YOUR CHOICE OF ONE ORIGINAL TRANSFER PRINT ON COPPER PLATE, CUSTOM FRAMED IN SOLID MAPLE BY ARTIST WHICH WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE SOLO EXHIBITION AND EXHIBITION CATALOG – PRE-PURCHASE one of the WORKS from this solo exhibition! Your choice of ONE of ONLY TWO WORKS AVAILABLE! “APPROPRIATE ATTIRE: EARTH AND BURLAP” or “APPROPRIATE ATTIRE: BURLAP AND ASHES”. (See image of both to the left). It is a fraternal twin, sponsor both for $300 each and you have the pair! Also included is the EXHIBITION CATALOG, an IMAGE OF THIS WORK in the Exhibition Catalog, YOUR NAME ON WEBSITE and in the CATALOG, a HANDWRITTEN NOTE GREETING CARD with MY THANKS, the POSTCARD, & SEED PACKET.

My image of the copper works aren’t a very good, so I included one of the works below not show on copper, so you can see the details.

Apparently there aren’t very many people who like to be surprised out there!? No, I don’t believe it! Here is a great reward that no one has jumped off a cliff for…yet! I included another drawing example below, so if this helps.

SURPRISE QUICK SKETCH AND EXHIBITION CATALOG- For you gamblers and lovers of the thrill! A DRAWING that I make up on the spot. It will look like one of my sketch book drawings, could be pen or pencil depending on my mood. Or, I may pull out a work (print or drawing) FROM MY FLAT FILES! Also you get the EXHIBITION CATALOG, PERSONAL THANKS, GREETING CARD, POSTCARD, SEED PACKET & NAME ON SITE.

Ok, last one to highlight. This one a couple of you have pledged for this one. I have had great responses to these works. Each one is different, and made with solid beautiful spalted maple wood.

SPALTED MAPLE WEARABLE SCULPTURE – If you are unsure what spalted maple is see the image and description area. After sculpting, it is connected to a silver chain or a leather necklace adding the “wearable” part to “sculpture”. So, you get the SPALTED MAPLE WEARABLE SCULPTURE, plus a NOTE OF THANKS ON GREETING CARD, POSTCARD, SEED PACKET & NAME ON SITE. This willwork for either sex. The one show below is on a different chain than what will be provided, unless it is what you would prefer. This is again, just an example as this is my wife’s, and she refuses to let this one go. You however can specify rough idea of shape and size. The one below is an extra large showpiece, but some prefer a smaller scale. Want to see other examples? Click here.

Ok, that wraps up this long update…Go forth and support creativity!
