03.26.13: Kickstart my Art

Remember that big tree I showed you a while back? Well, it’s almost ready for its close-up…

Today’s photo shows a detail of the tree yesterday after priming.

I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to complete the tree, my first large-scale public art project. Do you know about Kickstarter? It’s an online funding platform for funding creative projects.

You can pledge to become a backer, help get creative projects off the ground, and receive a reward. I’m offering special editions prints featuring images from my design cycle, “The Never-Ending Wood”.

These 4 photo-collage designs will cover the tree. As it turns out, printing photos on vinyl to wrap a 6-foot tall, three-dimensional tree is EXPENSIVE.

While I did receive $500 from the Enchanted Arboretum project board (Thank You!), my costs exceed $1200. I’m trying to make up the difference.

Please visit my Kickstarter Page to learn more about the project. There are lots of photos and also, ahem, a video. (I can’t say it was my finest hour but I got the job done.)

Become a backer to help get the project off the ground. Every contribution counts. Rewards start at $5!!
