UPDATE:

We may have reached our goal, but the campaign isn’t over yet. There are still less than 32 hours left to be a part of something bigger than yourself. In addition to the standard reward, anyone contributing $25 or more to our Kickstarter will receive a personalized video ‘Thank You’ from me taken at the NYC landmark of their choosing (ex. singing on the Brooklyn Bridge, skipping through Wall St., you get the idea!). I assure you, these videos will not be lacking in humor and gratitude. All this can happen for an added $2,500 on our campaign, making a final sum of $17,500. I couldn’t be happier to make a fool of myself to thank all of you for helping me make the world a better place. I’d say “thank you” but I’ll leave that and more for your video...

The Project:

Jarid and Jordon Rychtarik
Jarid and Jordon Rychtarik

I was born a twin. My brother Jordon and I were born two and a half months premature. Jordon was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (Cerebral palsy is a condition marked by impaired muscle coordination (spastic paralysis) and/or other disabilities, typically caused by damage to the brain before or at birth). Life with a family member with a disability isn't easy. The kindness of others overwhelmed me and I knew that I too could someday be just as giving to others in need. Jordon passed away shortly after our twenty-first birthday. Life was tough enough being the healthy twin while Jordon was alive, but nothing compared to the guilt and pain following his death. It took some time, but when I found myself above water again, I remembered the importance of kindness and giving to those in need. Thus, Zwinal - The Art Possibility was born.

Zwinal - The Art Possibility is building the ultimate platform for artists to give back to their chosen communities through their art by completing three objectives at the same time.

1) Getting the Artist the Exposure They Seek

2) Getting the Artist Paid While Doing So

3) Improving the Featured Artist’s Chosen Community with Each Sale of a Product Featuring Their Design

Our incredibly comfortable, quality focused apparel and accessories feature fun, unique designs designed to make you look and feel great! You are the most important part of our mission. Through your support there is no limit to the number of lives that we can touch with our process. 

The Result

Making ends meet, as an artist is extremely difficult. This is amplified when the business you start largely focuses on giving. Your contribution will go toward the following:

  • Moving the business out of my apartment and into a place suitable for our production needs. Why print 20 shirts a day when you can print 1,000?
  • Acquiring the proper equipment and supplies (printer, screen printing machine, screens, press, inks, etc.) to produce high quality products that will ensure our success.

Rewards

Shirts and Prints!
Shirts and Prints!

'Alice' the rooster is the featured design for the majority of our campaign rewards. The rewards featuring more than one design include a 'Grampaw' the cat design and also a 'Boo' the dog design. Once the campaign is underway we will release images of these other two designs. Be assured, they are just as fun and expressive as 'Alice'.

For those of you daring individuals willing to contribute a handsome sum that earns you an Art Night with Jarid (NYC area only unless you want to pay for your trip out here) you will spend time with Jarid and his cat and create beautiful art projects and even do some printing!

Available shirt and hoodie sizes: S, M, L, XL

Risks and challenges

With every new business issues will come up and Zwinal - The Art Possibility will be no exception. We stand at the ready to remedy any and all problems that we may face as we begin, grow and realize our full potential.
