This project was successfully funded on June 15, 2011.
About this project
I find pleasure in supporting my creative friends through Kickstarter. In the process of growing my business, soon to open a new workspace called ROW Collective, I must also expand my inventory. My GOAL is to have professional prints made from my originals.I turn to Kickstarter , and ask you to help me supplement my printing cost by pledging today! Here, artist and patron can come together,inspire each other and make ART happen! I appreciate your support. Every pledge counts!
Every month Santa Cruz hosts 1st Friday. A tour of local artist work spaces and studios. Next month I, along with ROW Collective, will be part of that tour. I want to be ready, having plenty of my originals and PRINTS on hand.
I use eco-friendly, recycled book pages when creating my artwork.I have chosen 5 originals that I'd like to see reproduced on quality art paper. With the help of The Santa Cruz Art League, I found an amazing local photographer/printer that I look forward to working with. Printing will start soon.
Once I have this initial investment, my ultimate goal is for this to become a self funding project through the sale of my prints.
Overall Cost of this Project:
Initial digital images of the 5 originals - $75
20 prints of each original : $800
Clear plastic protector sleeves and recycled cardboard inserts: $100
FAQ's ABOUT DONATING TO KICKSTARTER
How do I pledge? To pledge to a project, just click the green “Back This Project” button on any project page. You will be asked to input your pledge amount and select a reward. From there, you will go through the Amazon checkout process. Note that you must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded.
If I make a pledge, when is my card charged? If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. That's why we call them pledges.
If funding does not succeed do backers pay anything? Nothing. If funding fails, all pledges are canceled and that's that.
Can a project exceed fundraising goals? In other words, if it is 'almost there', should I bother supporting the project? Yes, pledges can exceed the amount asked for. Artists are encouraged to ask for the bare minimum they think it may take to realize their project, and as we all know, it frequently costs much more than we think. There is no limit to the amount a project can raise. SO, pledge away!!
Do I get notified if a project I'm backing succeeds? We’ll send you an email when funding ends, no matter the outcome.
Do I have to pay with Amazon? Why can’t I use Paypal? Why can't Kickstarter just take my credit card info? Kickstarter uses Amazon's Flexible Payments Service, which enables our all-or-nothing funding method. No other credit card processor currently supports our requirements. We're always talking with other companies and exploring other services, so expect more options in the future.
Can I pay with a check? Send cash by mail? Sorry, Kickstarter only supports credit card payments through Amazon.
I love to recycle vintage book pages, pen and ink, acrylics, watercolor and other mixed media pieces as well.
My parents are proud to display my childhood paintings and art on their walls, so I'd say all my life.
I love donating prints and original to various non-profits. I also enjoy selling my work and donating proceeds to various charities. If you have a special fundraiser, please ask..
