Kickstarter Update #3: First Goal $1,000/20%!

THANK YOU!


With your pledges we have hit the first goal –

$1,000 and 20%!

I am very grateful for your encouragement, support, sharing this with your
friends, family and creative/art lovers.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

WE ARE ON OUR WAY to the $5,000 goal. Remember, if we don’t hit that goal in 17 days,
this project will not get funded.
I can tell you don’t want that…I don’t want that either!

As you know we are all busy, if you would be willing to follow up on that email
you sent, facebook post, tweet, or text, phone call, whatever, I think we can really
help this project get wings! If we get enough traffic and pledges to the site, it will
catch the attention of the Kickstarter Staff again and this will help this project
even more!

If you have thoughts about how I could make this Kickstarter project even better?
…please let me know. If there are specific rewards that you feel would help make this happen,
please let me know, I am game! Remember you can always add to your pledge at any time
till April 7th.
How about a pack of six of the Bear Heart thank you cards (shown below)
by adding $20 to your pledge? The front of the card has Bear Heart image on the front, is blank inside,
and has information about the artist and the artwork on the back.

Bear Heart Greeting Card

I think our NEXT GOAL should be DOUBLING this $1,000 to $2,000!
What do you think? Can we do this in 4 days? This would get us back on track
for the $200 a day that is needed to fund this project in time. I am nervous, but
excited too. If these projects were easy EVERYONE would be doing them!
I have put myself out there and you all have been such a great support!
THANK YOU AGAIN!

Update on Kickstarter project launch

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

Darin M. White, Concept image for Bear Heart Sketch T-Shirt

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
like.

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.

Exhibition Catalog

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.

Pencil Drawings

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.

Overflow Card Concept Image

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!
