Project Update: PLEDGE GOAL OF $500!
Thank you so much for all the support to get me to the Flint Art Festival that will be held next month at the Flint Art Institute..
I am happy to announce that I have been accepted to feature at RAW Artists Showcase in Chicago June 28th 2012 8pm- 12am at Double Door 1572 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago
RAW Artists Showcase is in Chicago, which means I will have to travel from Detroit to Chicago and back for this. This is a huge deal for me. This is the first year that I have been able to devote ALL my efforts to my art and supporters due to having just graduated from college.
I have been accepted as an emerging artist to exhibit my work at Flint Art Festival in Flint, MI! I recently finished undergraduate studies at Wayne State University in 2011 and devoted much of my time to my life-long passion of painting.
I will have prepared a dozen paintings for June 2012 for the Flint Fair debut. They are of large scale paintings (24x36 in - 60 x 60 in). Depicting portraits of those very things that influence me to produce a painting. Oil & Spray paint on canvas. Inspired by my time living in Midtown Detroit, surrounded by urban street art and graffiti.
In addition, I will be debuting my "digital portraits"! (shown BELOW) You the backers will be exclusively given a digital portrait within the reward package of your choice. As a thanks to you- you will be the first to receive one of the pieces. I have experimented with using my Graphic Design background with my Painting background to render these digital paintings
What your support will do
The trouble comes in to transporting my work from Detroit-Flint and back then on to Chicago and back. With your kind support and donations we can make that happen. For that I will give back to you one of these great rewards (in right panel) as a HUGEEEEE Thank You!
Thank you! Any other backers that wish to pledge will be greatly appreciated and will go towards travel cost. And of Course help me keep the work going
