ALL OR NOTHING
Thank you for taking the time to look at my project! Kickstarter is an amazing platform to help fund creative ideas through donations, that might not other wise happen. The catch is, it is ALL OR NOTHING! That means if I don’t reach my intended goal, I get nothing, and your donation is cancelled. So please help by donating, and then spreading the word via Facebooking, tweeting a tweet on Twitter, blogging about it, sending an email, or calling a buddy! I need all the help I can get.
WHATI am fortunate enough to be participating in ARTPRIZE this year! It is a fantastic opportunity to get my art seen and to possibly win the largest cash prize for art in the world! I have already finished my entry and just need your help to get my two paintings equaling over 30 feet from Salt Lake City, Utah to Grand Rapids. Michigan.
My project is called Young Saints and Old Martyrs. The paintings are a commentary on the idea of religion and philosophies and how the current generation patterns their life and decisions based on the ideas of people who lived hundreds or thousands of years ago. It is meant to start an awareness of where our cultural norms came or evolved from.
The paintings are done and you can see them and find out more about them on my BLOG. You can also watch the DOCUMENTARY about the painting that a local film maker made who took interest in the idea and scale of the painting.
I spent the last four months working 15 to 19 hours a day to finish the painting in time to transport it to Michigan. I have also already put myself severely in debt completing the painting.
THE PLANI have to be in Grand Rapids by mid September, and will be there until mid October. As you can see, my goal date ends after I already leave. So the plan is to put myself further into debt, spending money that doesn’t exist, knowing that I will get enough backers to fund my leap of faith.
So where will your money go?
- Renting a cargo van to haul paintings, supplies, and myself. ($ 2,140)
- Fuel ( 3000 mi. round trip. I don’t want to know how much that will cost)
- Lodging ($500/week = $2,000)
- Food ( $300 I won’t eat much…)
I have not included the cost of printing promotional materials for the event, or the over $4,000 I have already spent in creating the project in my goal. I don’t like asking for money, and I am afraid of not reaching the goal and not getting at least some help!
WHAT DO YOU GET?I know you would do this out of the kindness of your heart, but out of the kindness of mine, I will thank you endlessly, and mail you some pretty cool prizes depending on your donation.
