This Kickstarter will fund the production of the first Quickest Flip Calendar & CD Compilation. What better year to start a calendar project than 2013?!
About Quickest Flip
Quickest Flip is an inclusive online gallery and shop that celebrates creativity and diversity. The QF site provides artists with representation and the means to exhibit, trade, and sell artwork alongside an array of artists all over the country. A side project of Quickest Flip is the arts & literature publication called Quickest Flipest, which includes even more artists and provides exposure for individuals making and doing really cool stuff.
Quickest Flip’s main objective is to represent a diverse artist base. The site started with the idea of creating a space where artists with disabilities can be represented and show their artwork alongside artists without disabilities. Therefore, all artists on this site have one thing in common – they want to be a part of an inclusive art space.
More about the 2013 Calendar Poster:
The wall calendar will be a single sheet wall poster featuring an original design by one of the Quickest Flip artists. The design will take up 3/4 of the poster while the bottom 1/4 will feature the 12 months of the 2013 calendar year.
The calendar will be hand silkscreen printed on 13" x 20" recycled 100# paper in Los Angeles by artist and printer, Kate Hall.
More about the 2013 Calendar Compilation CD:
The music compilation will feature 12 different original songs, each by a different band/musician. Each band/musician will be assigned a different month of the year to write a song for. This calendar compilation will be sold with the calendar poster.
Months have not yet been assigned but the bands/musicians who will make up the calendar compilation include:
- Chris Clavin (of plan-it-x records, ghost mice, inky skulls)
- Lillian Maring (of grass widow)
- Craig Salt Peters
- Orca Team
- The Pharmacy
- Karl Blau
- Sam Smith
- Veloura Caywood
- Golden Birthday
I need your support
My goal is to print and produce 50 silkscreen calendar posters and 50 compilation CDs to be sold together as a fundraiser for Quickest Flip.
Your pledges will go toward:
- Paper and printing ink costs
- The cost of blank CDs and recycled cardboard CD cases
- and paying Kate Hall for her skills and labor in hand printing all calendars and CD cases
Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing fundraising platform. Please note that if the goal is not reached, this project does not get funded.
What if I exceed my goal?
If this happens, that is great! I would love to print more than just 50 of each!
