About this project
AWESOME ROBOT PRINT
If I reach my goal I will be able to get some fancy limited edition prints of my original acrylic painting "Robot" on Hahnemuhle German Etching paper. The original was a detailed painting on wood board depicting a frog holding his favorite robot and announcing "Robot", you see, because "Robot" sounds like "Ribbit".
The prints will be 6 inches square. Depending on how everything works out I plan to get 20-500 prints, all will be signed and numbered.
This is also a test to gauge how the kick-starter system works and possibly use it to fund the printing a comic book, if all goes according to plan.
Please provide this encouragement for me to keep creating art for all of you.
Remember if I do not reach my goal this project will not go into production and you will not get your cool things, so tell your friends.

Risks and challenges
I'm really excited and confident about this project, and am thrilled to be able to bring my work to a new audience through Kickstarter! I am a freelance illustrator and painter. I have been illustrating for almost 13 years now, after graduating from RISD in 2000. *Phew*
Throughout my career I have worked with various printers, but have found iolabs to be my favorite so far. They print on really fancy Hahnemuhle German Etching paper and the print colors are gorgeous. Their printers have previously finished projects for me in a few weeks but I'm allowing almost a month for them to print this project, so if we end up needing to print more editions or re-print we will have some time to make adjustments.The prints can be a little expensive and I hope with your help we can reach the initial investment to have these prints sent to production.
The commissioned work (for the pledge rewards) may pose a bit of a challenge in my little hectic life, but I believe I have set aside enough time to complete the pieces. However, if by some crazy happenstance I end up taking a little longer to finish your awesome one of a kind pieces I will be sure to send everyone e-mails to let them know.
I feel confident that, with your support, we can make this happen! Thanks so much!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
