Gifted artist, Willard Snow, has created four images in his Legends & Idols series, and he wants to create more! Please support him as he builds his body of work so he can make these iconic images available to the world in more compact, manageable formats like fine-art collectible limited-editions: t-shirts, postcards, glossy prints, sketchpads, scarves, bandannas, iPad covers, etc.
Willard holds a masters degree from the San Francisco Art Institute and has worked with paint, sculpture, murals, jewelry, and printmaking. He is running this Kickstarter project to “kick start” his Legends & Idols art series.
When you pledge to this project, Willard will send you any of several gifts he’s prepared with his signature art on it.
Glossy 5”x7” postcards with envelope, each with an individual Legends & Idols image and its accompanying logo (some available with artist’s signature)
Glossy 12”x12” prints of his well-received Legends & Idols images (some signed by the artist)
T-shirts. These premium quality t-shirts have custom silkscreens of the Legends & Idols images (silkscreens carefully crafted and executed by Willard Snow himself).
Prints on aluminum sheets of the Legends & Idols images. Each work of art is 16”x16” printed on an aluminum sheet and mounted on foam core with hanger so it artfully “floats” over the wall.

**DISCLAIMER** These images are abstract swirls, lines, curls, and dots. Any resemblance to any persons living or dead is purely coincidental.
POSTCARDS: Here's a mock up of the postcards. They have a glossy finish with envelopes, and they're 5"x7" with the classic back with space for message, address, and place for postage stamp.
FIRST SHIRT: This was the first silkscreen I pulled on a shirt. It's not the final design I will be offering as a pledge reward, but you'll be helping me set up so we can produce LOTS of them. This one was produced in my home studio.
BONUS FUN!!! I don't like my title for "FEMALE VOCALIST," but I can't think of anything better. "VOCAL QUEEN" didn't work, either. If you can think of a better title for this image, leave it in a comment below. If I like your suggestion more than all the other suggestions (and better than "FEMALE VOCALIST"), then I'll change the title and update its logo on the postcard (and the sketchbooks, if I offer them).
The goal set here is $3000. If we hit $10,000, I will add sketchbooks as pledge rewards. They will be 7.5"x9.5" (the size of an iPad). Each will have one image of the four Legends & Idols with its corresponding logo. Filled with 32 pages of sketch paper.
Will you help spread the word? With no budget for marketing, Willard is depending on you to click the links below the video to Like on Facebook or Tweet on Twitter. Any other way you can help others see this project would be very appreciated by the artist!
Risks and challenges
Depending on the reception this project gets, the sheer volume of pieces I have to sign could push back the promise date on those pledge rewards.
I'm always creating and improving. By the time this project is completed, I may have found a design improvement that I like better than the ones I've shown here. You may not receive exactly what's pictured, but this I promise: as my thanks to you for supporting my art project, you will receive something equal to what you see here, or way better!
