Hi. My name is Jimmy. I need three months of time. I'll trade you some fun and colorful artwork for it!
I enjoy making art. Perhaps "enjoy" isn't a strong enough word, I love making art. My life's goal is to be able to support myself through artwork and as of right now I am closer to my life's goal than I have ever been before and it feels absolutely wonderful.
I need a small bit of help, though. A tiny boost. This is why I come to you on Kickstarter.
I'm here to ask for a couple of months of time. Time to create and paint and live. In return for your generosity and leap of faith, you'll receive a one of a kind piece of art I've made.
In short, you would be purchasing a piece of artwork in advance.
I could use your favorite colors or subjects in the painting or make it a surprise, whatever you like. The price of the postage is included in the pledge. Here is a link to my Tumblr account. I've posted hundreds of paintings and other artworks on there as to give you a better idea of my style. Acrylics are my strong point so I use them for most of my work.
On a side note, if successful, this campaign will also allow me the time to keep creating a series of art videos which I've titled "Arting with Jim" . The link goes to episode 1 which is about colorblindness. I hope to expand the series to include fun projects that people can do at home very inexpensively and sharing tips and tricks I've learned about working with different materials. I hope to make them funny as well. These videos don't cost money, they just take time. Precious precious time.
Thank you very much for reading about my Kickstarter campaign. Please feel free to message me with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you again.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.

The same as the $500 option. This would be a big piece. A big big big piece. Probably the biggest I've ever done (not counting murals).
