I have been a painter most of my adult life. Or at least that's what I tell myself. I am deeply inspired by animals and nature. In mid march while working at my day job, I was giving an art lesson to some of the kids i work with when one of them threw away a glass bottle he had finished. I thought about that for a minute and had him get me the bottle. We then started talking about recycling and how instead of just throwing these bottles away we could use them for canveses.
As time continued on i really started enjoying the fact that not only was I enjoying my favorite pass time I was also helping our environment which in turn was helping support my biggest inspiration (nature, even though most my friends will say it's chasing after Bigfoot).
I desided to share my beautifully hand painted bottles with kickstarter to help fund my art and share my art with everyone for a really reasonable priced reward instead of just hiding them away.
I've had so much fun painting these bottles. Some of these animals are just plain fun like Bigfoot or yetis, some are not as widely seen like foxes or anglerfish.
I sincerely hope you like what you see and are pleased with the outcome.
Risks and challenges
If successful I want everyone to understand. I am only 1 person who does have part time commitments other then my art. Even though most the bottles are finished I have already made myself a promise to make sure i will have everything finished by the est delievery date (based on those that pledge for there own animals).
Since I am an stylized artist some of the pieces are open to Interpretation (they aren't some crazy melting face that's upside down with 7 eyes. More just a close up of the face or show multiple animals). But everyone that has seen the bottles so far knows what I was painting.
Also my biggest concern is these are glass and have been sealed with special paint sealer. But since they are glass and will be shipped through the USPS there is a chance they could be broken. I will have them shipped fragile I will do my best to pack them well enough so that they do not get damaged. If there is a damaged reward i will replace it with a duplicate.
