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

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!

A long week of love…

My son died one week from today, last Friday, January 9th, 2009.  He was an amazing boy, and I am so thankful for the five years that I have had with him!  God truly blessed us with a miraculous  precious gift.
He is so missed, and we are grateful for his love of God, and that he is not uncomfortable or in pain and is enjoying his time for eternity.  Caden loved to come down to my studio and ask for scraps to make sculptures of his own.  I will post some of these at a later date.  Make a Wish foundation sent us to Disney World after his second diagnosis of Neuroblastoma cancer.  While we were there we went to Sea World.  Noel and he loved Shamu and they both got a stuffed toy orca.  I saw that they had carved orca tails for sale, but we didn’t purchase any.  I carved these tails for the kids to remember their trip out of walnut wood for Christmas.  We loved that the tails were to remind the kids to believe and follow their dreams.  My brother, myself, Peter and Chad, my brother-in-laws carried his casket to the waiting grave.  At the graveside memorial for Caden I took some pictures with a friends camera of the casket with the angels at the corner and of the calalilies on top of the casket and the tree behind lit up by the late day sun that came out after our friend Tom prayed in his rememberance.  His body is resting in this beautiful spot nestled in the woods of the rolling hills of Kansas just a stones throw from my Great – Great Grandfathers Homestead foundation and well.  Caden’s story is one of courage, bravery, faith, joy and love.  Please read more here.   My wife wrote a striking and poignant poem that truly speaks to our Mr. C and his five wonderful years of life, from the day he was born May 5, 2003 during the tornado to the point when he was free last Friday, January 9, 2009.
