Thank you once again for your support in making the 2013 Cut Paper Art Calendar Campaign a success! I was so pleased that some of you joined us again in 2014, and I hope that everyone will consider supporting my art project this time around.
Once again, I'm back on Kickstarter with the new Calendar project, a handful of new art alongside old favorites, plus some fresh ideas I'm really, really excited about.
A Tiger on a Tee
I've always wanted to wear my art. The time never seemed right, before. Happily, this feels like a great time to add a new stretch goal and print a t-shirt.
We've spent the last 2 months talking to t-shirt printers all around Fukuoka. We've found one we like. Our plan is to do a print run of 100 (or more?). We're looking at printing a full-color direct-to-garment design. The color of the shirt will depend on which looks best. More info as we get close to the goal.
We should have some pictures or a video up soon, showing a prototype of the design - the same tiger who graces the cover of our calendars. I'm so excited for this, and really, really, really hope we get the chance to move forward!
Four Legs and Hooves
Each year, I try to freshen up the calendar, keeping the things you love while adding a dash of the new. As the Year of the Horse gallops into the sunset, the Year of the Sheep has ascended the craggy peaks to take his place.
I had a lot of fun making this new piece, and am really happy with the way it turned out. Who knew a sheep (okay, a ram) could be so grand.
Paper, Paper, & More Paper
Our sheepish friend is just the first piece of new art. Frigid December waves goodbye to a cardinal to greet a pair of foxes and their friends. August will also get a new piece (I'm still weighing my options there).
More Papery Goodness
There's also a new video (I got the chance to dabble with some animation), new Thank-You rewards, hopefully a new lasercut, an upcoming chance to vote for artwork and more.
Thank you again for your support last year! I know a handful of you have already sauntered on over to the new project. I hope the rest of you will come by, check us out, and consider supporting us!
