About this project
This majestic and misunderstood creature has been a legend among wildlife enthusiasts for decades. Now you can hang this elusive beast in your bar, den, garage, fireplace mantle... bathroom?
Ok, enough of the lame SkyMall description. This is a first attempt to go public with my sculptures. This piece is quite large and reproduction costs are going to add up fast. I'm also having a custom RotoCasting Machine made to help speed up the duplication process, not cheap. So hopefully Kickstarter can be a valuable tool for funding this project and get the "Beer" out to the world. Each "Beer" will be a lightweight resin shell with foam core.
The Rewards that include a "Beer" are less $$$ then I'm going to sell them after the kickstarter is fulfilled. These are nice t-shirts, none of that rat hair stuff. Wait, that's what they make cheap shirts out of, right?
For transparency, here's my goals/reasons for using Kickstarter:
- Fund molding
- Fund casting supplies
- Fund Rotocasting Machine
- Sell "Beers", mostly!
- Fund Marketing
- Get exposure and help fund future sculpture projects
- Sculpt Fish-Dogs (See Reward #9)
Check out Reward #9. Your own 1/2 size portrait bust of anyone you want, including dogs and other pets. Only 2 of these rewards available.
I'll be updating this as the project evolves. Possibly adding new rewards.
This thing is big, it's hard to understand it's awesomeness until you see it in person. Oh hey, who's that handsome fellow sitting next to the "Beer"?
