Introduction

Welcome to my Kickstarter campaign, thanks for clicking on it! 

My name is Joe & by day I do the 9-5 as an Architectural Assistant in a small town in Staffordshire, but by night/weekends the pens come out & an innocent piece of paper is dragged out of its comfortable packaging to be vandalised by whatever my subconscious has been curating in the back of my mind!

Sadly I don't have the funds to create a decent quality video that wouldn't be grainy pixelatedness from my webcam so I'll explain my campaign with writing rather than with my face.

Campaign

I have a fondness for Kickstarter campaigns, I ran a successful campaign nearly 2 years ago whilst I was unemployed & had no money. Running the campaign got me drawing feverishly distracting me from my situation between trying to find jobs that kept rejecting me, it gave a small amount of cash I desperately needed whilst trying to find work. 

Not only did it help me stay busy & use my passion to gain some finances, it also allowed me to create for people, I drew all the time but rarely did I get much interest, especially in a small town its is hard to get your artwork out there. This got me straight to the people & seeing anyone actually take an interest in my drawings meant a hell of a lot, giving me a real confidence boost in my passion. The process itself was great, it was some of the best work I've done so far (some of these examples were drawings I did for the last Kickstarter) I was in touch with people about the drawings throughout & got some awesome feedback which again was something I'd rarely experienced, seeing your own artwork in someone else's home whom you have never met is just an amazing experience.

I'd love to recreate that experience from the last campaign, it would also be nice to put some money together as I go back to studying this year & having some additional finances is always a great help, it would just be something else if I can fund it by doing something I love to do.

So this is my campaign, thank you for checking it out & if you've read this far thank you for reading! Have a look around, check out a load of my work, I've tried to put up as much as possible which hopefully gives you an idea of what you will receive for your hard earned money! 

All of these drawings you see on here will be available as prints, the print sizes will be associated with the sizes stated under the image of the drawing. I'll be making a proper list to select from very soon.

Hope you enjoyed my ramblings, thank you again for clicking on this campaign!

Cheers!

Joe

Risks and challenges

I have the experience of 1 successful Kickstarter campaign under my belt, that experience has given me the insight into some of the things that can come up during the process. Mostly underestimating the amount of time it takes to create the pieces is usually the main risk, but I have given more time than the previous campaign to allow for a bit of extra work time especially with the 40 hour week involved as well this time.

Other than that there aren't any real risks, I will be begin the drawings if/when the Kickstarter looks to be successful & will post updates as to when the drawings will be posted out, of course more time needs to be allowed for international postage.

Regarding prints, I will create a list for you to select from towards the end of the campaign, this will be in a survey form, all the available prints are now up on the campaign page for you to choose from.

Thank you!
