creative community

I have to say, its just an astonishing experience to have so many people show up to support your creative vision. When you are planing to go on Kickstarter and plan your project, you think of numbers and how you probably need 200 or so backers to make your project work, and because you believe in your work and vision and because you create something you hope people find beautiful, it doesnt really sound like too many people.. In fact, you think, because you are so sure that your subject matter is fascinating, that OF COURSE at least 200 people will show up.. but when its actually happening and you see the people come, one by one, with names you recognize and names you have never heard before, it becomes a truly amazing thing. Something is happening as far as support and community that many artists never feel. I never have before.So, thanks. I know I keep saying that, but you are changing how I am an artist, one who is more rooted and confident.. and I'll always have that.

When you get a new pledge you get an email that says( my last pledge before this update) 

New Backer Alert! Vi Anne Marie Traynor has pledged $125.00 to Why We Run(Por Qué Corremos) Tarahumara Runners of Mexico.

Quite astonishing, really. I don't know Vi( yet). How lovely and heart warming that she liked my work enough to want to join me.. and all of you as well.. how lovely you really are.

    COLLECTOR. All great collectors have very refined tastes, so I want to reward you with something that will reflect your special ability to invest in only the best. Once a year, each Tarahumara family makes one rug/blanket out of the black wool of the few sheep that their family keeps. These rugs are large (queen size) and very heavy as well as very rare. They are not available in any store. I want you to know that this reward sends me on a special quest to find you one of these rugs and bring it back for you. Not an easy quest, but you are worth it! You will also receive an Associate Producer credit in the film, a download of the film, a creative phone chat, a custom haiku and membership in our members on Facebook group. Is this enough to make you feel the love?!? Believe me, it’s there. You can see a link to the type of rug here http://www.smithsonianeducation.org/textiles/english/gallery/tara_d.htm US shipping is included. Additional fee for International shipping.
